Volt driver, pnumatic rifle, or shotgun?
Simple enough, I'm trying to decide to take the first volt driver you come across, to pick up that first pnumatic rifle, or to stick with my double barrel.

I do like me some stealth, but every time I fired my slient revolver in past lets plays I was picked up instantly. The only stealth gun I had any success with was that pnumatic sniper rifle, and that was only good for those situations where you could remain unseen. There were a few times wandering around the outside where I dearly wished I had a double barrel.

So my questions are these this:

Does a vold driver do more damage via body shots then the pnumatic gun and the double barrel?

And how hard is the ammo to come across? Lets face it, a gun can be amazing, but if you run out of ammo its pretty useless.

I am only rarely using the pneumatic guns, so I can't tell you much. I do collect the ammo to them, however, but I seem to have a hard time collecting it. But if you go for the airguns, you can sell the shotgun ammo and instead buy ammo for them.

I finished the game using only the pneumatic rifle and throwing knifes (of course) for both combat and stealth. Pneumatic rifles with maximum pressure can kill almost all enemies with a single shot (maybe two for demons). However, you have to be good moving Artyom around while you pressurize it again :/

I just started a new game and lost my Volt Driver, that thing is awesome. One shot kills all over the place. Now, I got to gp back through it to get it. :( It was my mistake by starting a new game instead of, going back over the maps.

I used the volt driver through most of the game and enjoyed it besides the recharging after every big fight. But you will have to do that with the pneumatic as well.

As for the stealth part, I don't think it will matter. I think the stealth mechanics are a bit broken in this game as I have been in the dark and taken a guard out with a silenced pistol and somehow still raise the alarm. Yes I know some enemies have night vision googles, but not too many.

Thanks all, I went with the volt driver. That pnumatic is cool and all, but its not a 1 shot like the volt driver. and that alternate fire thing is awesome. I wound up carrying a silenced pistol for the stealth, and an ak for the fights where the volt drivers charge didn't cut it.
