    what weapons do you guys like using the most ? I like really all the weapons I've tried. And omg the Devotion is a MONSTER , I'm sure that's gonna get nerfed soon haha. But I think Respawn has done a tremendous job with the weapons up to this point. Most of them are very fun to use and they perform extremely well. I think my 3 favorite ones right now are the Volt , Car, Devotion . But the G2 and Hemlock are monsters as well.

    I'm using the R-97 right now, because it has the fastest fire rate, but I also really like the Sidewinder SMG, the Volt, the Alternator and the CAR. I think most of the really good players use the Alternator and if not that then the Volt.

    hmmm I'm not familiar with the r-97 or sidewinder. I've never tried them . So since you are using the fastest SMG it must also have the least amount of range. So you get in close then. You are an agreessive player ?

    The hemlock, G2, and Devotion are amazing med to long range guns. You can destroy everyone if you get the spot first. Now of course we want more weapons on the next update but here is respawns delima now. How many more great long range guns do they want to put in this game ? Not sure if you have noticed but I'm sure you have some of these maps feel "campy". You might get a cheap lobby and they all camp out on rooftops with there shields up and kill you from long range. Respawn gives you all this GREAT freedom to move and traverse the map but you got people camping. BUT this what you get by moving towards more traditional fps like you have pointed out. But I like both aspects, to either play agressuve and get in close but also having the ability to kill at long range and play cautiously

    But see this is Respawns delima because they basically make both styles perfect. They are super talented.

    Yeah, the R-97 is good up close. I am only good at close combat. I prefer to fly around the map and only engage if someone is in close quarters. I preferred the EVA-8 shotgun in TF1 and pretty much felt invincible with it. However, they severely weakened it in TF2 to the point where it is unusable, so I had to pick something else.

    Yeah, I don't like that they've done a lot of things to encourage camping. I could live with it though if they would put the ground movement back to the way it was in TF1. With the Stim in TF2, which is one of the best improvements, I can fly around better than I used to, but if I touch the ground it is like slamming on the brakes and it didn't do that in TF1. See, if they put that back the way it was then I wouldn't care if people were camping, because I know I could out maneuver them, but the way it is now, I touch the ground and I am a sitting duck stuck in the mud for campers to pick off.

    OMG!!! Stim is the best!!! Even in TF1. It gives you a temporary health boost and speed boost. It was really good in TF1, but they jacked the speed boost way up in TF2. Try using it and chaining some wall runs together. It's amazing!!! Best feeling thing in the game. it is one of the Tactical abilities you could choose, like where Cloak or Phase Shift are.

    I've honestly loved all the weapons I've used so far and haven't felt that any of them were really overpowered except for maybe the Devotion and that's only because it has a really quick default reload speed for an LMG. Although, I haven't really used any of the Grenadier or Sniper class weapons yet... at least not enough to judge.

    Favorite is Volt and then the G2.

    Yeah, don't feel bad buddy. I can't do it either. Believe me. I've tried. I watched WarSpiritUK's tutorials, which are great, but I still can't even get close to it working for me. :)

    I've been useing the OP201 and the Volt alot however the Alternator is a hip fire beast up close.

    I like using it for hardpoint where alot of the engagements are at point blank range.

    I was just using the alternator yesterday and was loving it up close. It was very fun to use as in mostly all guns in this game. Man, the gun play in this game is so great !

    Heard some friends I play with talking about it one day and I've been using it since. But reluctantly I have to sometimes switch to something else just to keep things fresh in Titanfall 2.

    The guns are pretty awesome in tf2.

    I'd consider these to be top tier (xbox): car, alternator, devotion, g2, maybe carbine, r97 now, mag launcher (for titans) and wingman elite.

    Volt may be but I dont use it enough, not exciting for me personally.

    Devotion aint op as such, you can see for sh!t when its going full blast, but with tap firing its awesome.

    This games all about positioning and not running down the middle of the street, stay off the floor as much as poss and wallrun/b-hop. (Omega, theres some great slide hopping tutorials on yt - eurynome stolas, iniquity gaming, gamesager to name a couple).

    Movement and position I believe gets round most weapon differences. (I hate dying to hemlock/a-wall/pilot sentry combo, but technically you can avoid it).

    My faves at the mo are alternator, w/man elite, flatline, and now the r97 (best gun sound in the game. If worried about range, dont be. Search Benchy r97 on y/t - amazing.) Devotion and mag launcher.

    I like Hemlock, Devotion, R201 & G2 the most. I really need to play with R97 some more.
    I know G2 in the right hands in pretty hard to beat as well.

    I have to agree that positioning and map awareness is really key to success as anything.

    I just started using the r97 and it's awesome. But basically all the weapons are awesome in this game. Since the buff the flat line and spit fire are really good to use. I like switching weapons now because they are all fun to use and I can do pretty well with most of them. The hemlock can be annoying and it's possible it could use a slight nerf ( I say slight because typically I am a huge fan of bursts guns ) but I feel like a lot of people get lucky kills with it since the damage is so strong. But the devotion and G2 are monsters. Alternator and r97 seem to be the best smgs

    I am mad about the nerf on the volt , that was a very cool and fun weapon and I tried it the other day and I felt like they really screwed it up. I was losing a lot of exchanges with it. Why exactly did they nerf it ?
