VX6-7 is the best. There isn't any weapons with an underbarrel attachment for engineer. The only weapon I know of that does is a medic rifle.. The regular red dot scope is what I use. I usually can get some sick kill streaks going in close range with the VX6-7 with soft point ammunition!!

Ermm, Solstice SF?


For myself I'm not sure what to choose: Solstice SF (ub attachments), VX6-7 (advanced laser dot) or Eidolon (poor wannabe sniper rifle). But I've seen in beta that adv laser dot is great thing.

Not really, I killed 2 players both almost 5 times in a row with it from a med/ long range distance.

I must say 2 things of those 2 players:

1. they were friends
2. 1 of the 2 was a really big noob

why??
1 of the 2 players was a MAX and i had no ammo with it my brust solstice, so i dropped my ammo pack started to refill he was like really close combat and he started to shoot on me with the anti tank weapon.

So i refilled the entire gun and started to spray on his head and body after like 10~20 shots he was dead.

another thing was.
5 minutes before the thing above happend the 2 players were running towards me 1 Max 1 light assault, i killed the light assault really easy then jumped on a small hill the max started to run around it and i started to shoot on it while he didn't knew were i was and a friend of my shot like 4 times with a parralex sniper on the max (idk if it's called parralex, but sounds like that).


edit:

btw i play with all setting low cuz sometimes if there are to many players my pc starts to lagg with medium or higher settings.

So the HS/NV is great to watch enemy locations from a medium distance even with low setting.

Solstice SF because its the only Carbine with a Grenade Laucher.

Hmm they must have added that. I didn't see that the last time i checked a long while back..

For general purpose, I'd say a shotty with slug ammo. You'll get good stopping power at an actually decent range. Any of the shotguns are good.

If you want a hipfire weapon, stick with your Solstice or grab the VX67 - or Serpent for strictly CQC.

If you want a longer range weapon, the Pulsar C is quite good and very flexible with various weapon mods(used to be the default weapon in beta).

Oh, I almost forgot that default weapon in beta was something with "Pulsar" in name. Now I'm sure that I won't buy this piece of junk. It was so weak and inaccurate that I even hated engineer class but now it's my prefered
Thanks for reminding.

Odd that you're the only one to mention the vx6-7.
It's pretty much the best gun I've ever used and I've tried them all.
It has the most accurate hipfire in the game and the 2nd fastest time to kill.
Anything close to mid will get wrecked by this, but it's not a long range weapon.
It's the only weapon I think you should get first.
I use it with laser x2, IRNV, and silencer.
The soft point lowers you damage just a little at close range so I don't use it anymorem but it's not bad.

If you want to spam grenades try the SF, but the gun itself isn't good.
Shotguns are equal to the vx in killing speed up close, but aren't good with any other range unless you aim down sights with slugs.
All the other guns are up to personal taste imo, but the vx6-7 is obviously worth it.

I still keep my Solstice Burst, it is fast shooting, good accuracy, medium (/ high) damage and i mostly use a HS/NV attachment on a weapon, cuz i can detect movement from enemies from a distance and you can defend players while you support them with ammo while killing infals being cloaked.
