All. I try to use all weapons equally in each encounter, but my personal fav is the shotgun flame rounds.

Bow for silent kill and sniping. But I'll always have my pistol ready.
Shotgun for the samurai, AR for a gang of nuts, Pistol for a classy fight, Bow for a talkative target.

Bow and handgun for me. With bow being favourite. Shotgun is useless for the most part, and rifle has too much recoil.

The bow is my go to weapon because I upgrade it first and it's the best long range weapon, great for getting one shot kills and stealth kills.

If there's a lot of guys running in the open, the rifle is my next option (upgraded commando). The recoil is is much improved on this weapon as opposed to the initial rifle.

I'll also use the pistol if there's a lot of guys in the open because it's powerful in it's own right, but I often find myself forgetting it in favor the other weapons. Now, if they were akimbo like the older games, this would be a different story.

The shotgun is my least favorite and least used. Very situational aka close range. I only use it if those crazy melee guys get up close to me or if there are a lot of enemies right nearby.

Depends on the situation; bow for sniping, rifle when there's a lot of guys around, pistol for fun and shotgun for bosses.

Bow unless they get close. Then I hit 'em with da shotty to the face.

Anything other than the bow feels dirty. According to my Square Enix Profile. roughly 80% of my kills are from the bow.

However, for the Oni at the end, I try to use bow/pistol in combination and then use finishers.

Bow ftw
Bow + flaming arrows and you feel like a god damn femRambo.

Btw it's funny how the bow is now on par with the dula desert eagels for me as LC's signature weapon, and I'm with the series since TR 2:P

I am more on the stealth side, and the bow would be my favorite, followed by a fully upgraded silenced pistol. One shot, one kill.

If I can't get the job done with those two or the situation demands it, rifle (angry mobs) or shotgun (up close and personal "boss" fights).

Except when really needed like against bosses, I feel like the only useful weapon in this game is the bow. Maybe they made it too strong so everyone is using it for every situation.
Brensters Jul 25, 2013 @ 6:29pm 
Other than when I have to silent kill, my "go to" weapon is the fully upgraded machinegun/rifle. I find that the target is very visible. I like that about it. I really do love them all though for their own individual atributes. I feel weird using the term "love" when refering to weapons. LOL

rifle 26%
pistol 19%
shotgun 16%
pickaxe 3%

Interestingly enough, I always use pistols or guns to blow up barrels and such. Something in my gamer upbringing tells me that a bow wouldnt set a exploding barrel on fire (never tried, sure the napalm arrows would). But I'm not sure how the game would track that. I.e: If i shot a barrel with a shotgun, and it blew up, would it count as a shotgun kill?
