    The flatline is great. Honestly I find the flatline and the rt201 to both be awesome and very reliable. Those are typically the weapons I will switch to when I want to get serious.

    LStar is a powerhouse when used properly.

    Alternator was always amazing but i haven't used it in awhile so I'm not sure if it's still as great.

    Pretty much all the weapons have been great during the course of this game. But after nerfs some guns aren't really that worth picking anymore.

    Volt - what the hell happened to this gun ? I think it's useless now , it was one of the most fun weapons to use. Now it's worthless, atleast the last time that I tried it out.

    It's awesome for CQB to mid range, even though not an SMG, pull it out on the close quarter maps and you'll be away laughing!!! good times!!!

    I will always love the devotion. Such an amazing gun. But..we all know public opinion on that one.
    The Flatline is probably my favorite.
    I used the 101 at first and thought it was awesome, but the sights began to bother me more and more.
    I accidentally pressed the 201 one day and used the iron sights. Bang. This is my current go to gun, but only to gen up on it.
    It is quite versatile and has a bit more gritty feel to it than the 101 although there is no fundamental difference.
    The problem is that all the guns have their utility and are fun. But I like versatility. I TOTALLY MISS using my old go to, the Spitfire. But I loved that gun because I was and still am an addicted Rodeo-er. I miss taking out the Titans with the Spitfire and Hammer. Without the rodeo kill option, I just do not see the benefit for the Spitfire.

    Hang in Pilots. Our numbers are diminishing with every inane change or lack of change Respawn makes. Patience and loyalty must prevail.

    I was just using the devotion today , the gun is great. But honestly I feel a lot of guns are great . The 201 is definitely a must use , I have had big games with that gun. The flatline would be the next in line. It depends on your style , typically I would like to have a gun that is strong at medium range.

    The spitfire is another awesome gun. I particularly will use that on Angel City with the thermal scope and I do big damage usually lol. You have to get used to the kick of the gun but it's definitely a very formidable weapon at this point.

    My only real disappointment right now is the volt. They have ruined such a great and fun gun. I will try to use it again to give it another chance but last time I used it I was extremely disappointed.

    Overall I love the guns in this game but I don't want them to tamper to much with the weapons. Like the hemlock for instance I think is to weak now. I could be wrong but if it takes 3-4 shots to kill someone with that gun it's not worth using.

    Nothing wrong with devotion - hardly use it myself in fact as I find it too hard, being to used to being able to empty a mag at the press of the trigger. Gotta take my hats off to all that use the devotion as a first choice, it's not always easy especially in the CQB but clearly once someone masters it its deadly as hell. Drives me wild how it has to build up! that's where the skilled operator (which isn't me!) comes into play. I've been smoked plenty of times with it!!!

    I better start using it though, been neglecting the MG's over the gren's outside of the usual!

    I need to get onto that Spitfire, neglected it since release sadly. I used to love the Volt too, still use it now and then for a kick it seems to do well with run and gun still.

    The spitfire is awesome because of the large amount of ammo it has. And kills pretty quickly if your accurate with it. But you can instantly turn to the next target because of the ammo size. I like to use this gun specifically on Angel City. I think it works so good on that map.

    I'll try the volt again and see what happens

    Devotion is my best weapon (gen 10 I believe) but been running 101 lately. My son don't know why I like Devotion either, he says it's trash. Not sure why, but it seems like I have the best accuracy with it vs most others guns.

    Like Hemlock too, but seems like it lost too much damage or something.

    Yea man I'm glad you tried it out, spitfire is a beast. Also when you feel like giving it a go try the L -star. It's not a long range weapon but when you get the hang of it you can go on big runs with it. You drop bodies very fast, but it does have a slow rate of fire so you have to be accurate and even lead your shots at times on a moving pilot. But that gun is really awesome to.

    Report - Gen 15+ on the Spitfire now since last posting on this thread, man it's a nasty bugger loving it and it's a great Attrition & Bounty gun, and I've found it's come in real handy on my favorite mode CTF especially against a good defending team. It definitely is a bit of a fodder cannon. I've been using it with 'gun ready' and 'threat scope'. Pretty damn gnarly, quite hard now to want to go to any of the others. The lack of needing to change mag so quickly is a real benefit. Maybe not so good in close quarter? what do others think? I note that coming around a corner you can get dropped pretty by other guns. Awesome at med - long range though, especially for those pesky snipers that think you can't see them!!.

    I've been having a good go at sniping too on that note, still crap I am just like was on TF1.

    I have been having the odd go back at the G2 which saw me through as my first favorite, and the only downfall of the spitfire I suppose, is now I am crap with the G2 due to the need to aim properly lol. I guess it's like anything, get used to something and lose the other. G2 certainly make you feel like a gentleman though, but the spitfire is the main contender now.

    Anyone else been hammering with something different since this post? how that Volt? haven't used it in ages, thought the CAR wasn't that great but that might just be me. I see pilots that like to get close and personal and fly all over the place really use up those SMGs.

    Peace!

    @RottweilerluvNZ any and every clip I've seen of yours seems to confirm my beliefs that any weapon in your hands turns lethal. I liked it in TF1. Maybe I'll take her for a spin.

    I've only just started the game but I really like the Alternator with the Gun runner perk. But it sounds like I need to try out some of the other guns! I did pick up the R-97 in game and that was crazy! Looks like I should try the Devotion and spitfire. And for Titans I'm liking Ronin's mighty sword.

    Yeah, my progression was kind of like this:
    -started with Alternator and loved it
    -then tried Volt and loved that even more
    -then tried Sidewinder SMR and love that even more
    -then tried the R-97 and have been using that ever since (by the way it has the best firing rate of all the guns)

    I think all the weapons are pretty much awesome and very useful , the volt being the one that may be in question because I think it has been over nerfed . But it's Clip size and accuracy still kinda makes it usuable at times . If i get matched in a hard lobby and I feel like the other team has good players and they know all the cheap tactics I pretty much will always go to the 201. I feel like I'm competitive at all ranges with that gun and can be the most versatile. The Car is also another really good one.

    An easy mistake to make is when you are using an smg gun to get involved with gun fights that are out of your kill range. This can happen when you are playing against good players and in a tough game, you will find yourself taking on gun fights out of range and you will get killed quickly. You have to try and be dicplined and stick to the range the gun is equipped for . The car is an smg that has real good range, better than the other smgs in that regard.

    Was just thinking the same, SMG's are awesome on some maps, but in the more open ones they can catch you out a bit. Easy to be snotted from a distance and nothing much can do.

    I find the same with the long range weapons on the other hand especially on the live fire maps and CTF nitro...gotta be quick, or the smgs chew you up!

    All comes down to battle prep.
