Stagger Storm. For some reason, I just love stun, and when OOO released the Swagger Storm, I couldn't resist.
Gran Faust. It looks just awesome and that curse is always nice to me :)
Callahan. Again, dat stun and incredible DPS with gun switching.
Gran Faust. It's saved my life too much to not love it.
This is the definition of a support bomb, of which most of my loadouts are based around. I don't like being hurt by things so like to get them hindered from a...safe distance! I love the Shiver like a mentor as it was the first bomb I used, and what drew me into bombing, but from a personal use and practical application love, it'd have to be the poison. Makes me feel safer, makes them die easier and turns healers against them, all fiendish like. LD is great for trolling at heartpads and no one takes it seriously so just allows themselves to be poisoned.
Hard choice, actually. My Glacius I love as a support weapon and my first sword, even long before the Brandish update. Dat freeze just suited my Shiver spamming perfectly and has served me well, since.
Suda is my go-to face-slamming sword, as it has a nice long reach and a nice, large KB that keeps distance between my face and things that would stab it. It's also my LD baby, and the first sword I had any success with.
I don't think I could pick a favourite one of the three. I love all three statuses for various different reasons, and can find a slot in my loadouts for any of them. I don't care much for the other alchemers, as I don't think ~20 damage is worth losing a status effect that invariably does more. I only have Umbra for the shadow damage, but the status ones are my boys. Alch-switching, charges, ricochet, status spread, love it all~
As in, if I had to pick one weapon to go in every loadout of mine? Probably Shiver, then. Shy of Frost levels and Skolvers in LD, this bad boy can just be used anywhere, everywhere for any reason, solo or group (whereas VVs use is restricted solo, while enhanced with larger and larger parties). Tactical placement, panic button, a tool to aid fleeing, or by slow, safe killing with hazebangs. I've killed a slag while shivvering Vana before by just doing that; the thaw was what finished him off; was beautiful!
But nosrsly, not many weapons can easily fit in any and all loadouts; this be one of them, and is why I like it~
Because I love the colors it makes, plus when it's used with Vanaduke it makes everything quicker.
none- I'm a gunner lol
Polaris for PVE
Umbra Driver for PVP
Out of all of the guns, Polaris is easily the most OP. For that same reason, I do not like to use it for PVP unless I am provoked to do so.
Because it's my most used gun.
electron vortex -by far the most fun-to-use bomb. it is just better than shiver for locking foes without creating walls of death, and less chance of knockback than graviton. worst thing is i can never get anyone to charge at my vortex, but i like chaining too. they look too desperate when chaining :'(.
nitrollome -the graphics :3. i like it becuse it carries you when you are in a bad situation. low health? nitro. quicksilvers vs. voltaic? nitro. oiler vs. ash? nitro. trolling? NITRO. it can be used everywhere. if nitronome was a human, then it would be my best bud.
barbarous thorn blade/final flourish -it was really fun to use grand flourish, i wish i still had it. i have the recipe anyways, but i am no longer a swordie and my bombing gear is not full 5* yet. no constructs or jellies? then you can use a flourish instead of a calibur.
leviathan blade -one-shots turrets, for the rest look at nitrollome.
volcanic pepperbox -a great support weapon.
Ash of Agni, though once I get a Voltaic Tempest, I'll probably love that more
Well, I like hurting things as much as possible. I generally play with swords so inflicting status that hurts things just before I go over to it and hurt it more is really nice. Voltaic Tempest will also have the whole "shocking" thing to help with that even more.
One of my first 5* swords and one of the best UVs I rolled just from upgrading it. (Medium damage vs. Slimes.) I rarely go anywhere without it. :3 I always have a Divine Avenger with me but I really like the Acheron more overall.. it's just not as practical.
Polaris I guess.
I'm not a strong gunner and I play with a controller, which, I will admit, with my setup, lacks the finesse required to be a successful gunner. Polaris is great for solo play and the large explosions are wonderful for people who suck at aiming like me. :'3
Making bombs first earns you a brownie point. You know what? Have two. Each of those can get you a brownie. Or whatever you want of equal value at your local bakery. Tell them that weird guy who carries a crate around sent you.
Most of this is going to be biased to my first experiences with each weapon type. Just a heads up. Or down. Whichever direction you want. There are also going to be a lot of words.
This first one is kind of a tie, but not really: Graviton, Voltaic, and Barrage in that order.
After I grew out of only using swords, which will be described for swords later on, Graviton and Barrage lines were my first two bombs. As I built them I was also building what is currently my Mad Bomber set which I still use >90% of the time to this day. Back then I was too cheap to bother trying to get UVs, I think Punch was out for about a month at the point I got all four of those things to 5*, but before then I tried to keep them all even. CE was pretty cheap back then so it was easy to get through the ranks because there was a lot less people pumping out crowns driving the price all the way back to Isora. If I post how much it was, though I did last time I posted about how I started, people are going to use that as an excuse to suggest forcing CE prices to be lower and be obnoxious. Anyway, I pretty much dropped using swords for a while as soon as my HDemo and 4* Graviton and Barrage were set up, and my next target was getting MadB. Around when MadB was done and Graviton was about to get bumped up to 5* we got the Roarmulus update with the prized Voltaic line. I never bothered with statuses until I started using it. Shock is amazing for bombers. It deals damage over time, completely interrupts the afflicted enemies, and opens up a slight window to sneak in the middle of a crowd of dancing whatevers and plop a Graviton in there. Yes, I used Graviton as a shadow damage weapon for offense. Laugh if you want. It still works and I still do it to this day. If they reduced or removed the knockback on Graviton I would get a better UV than the +2 beast I got when Graviton used to start as a Blast branch and I crafted the little blue booger with the UV after not nearly enough attempts at crafting a UV. I was hoping for some charge at first, then remembered with full heat and MadB charge bonuses would be useless after that. Not really harming anything by having it, not particularly beneficial, but it beats having nothing. Bombers were strangely rare back in those days. It was all about gunning and sword stroki- I mean swinging.
Back to Voltaic line again, I used it with Graviton a lot. I also used Barrage with Graviton. I used Graviton a lot in general. I jumped into Arcade parties a lot and over 90% of the time everyone was bewildered that a bomber existed. The rest of the time no one wanted to talk. There were one or two times another bomber was in the party, but they always used Shivermist or Nitronome. I think there was one with Agni. I was probably running with the wrong crowds. Bombing especially shined in arenas where a Voltaic followed up by a Graviton devastated that final wave in the third room. What was that? Ten Mechas at once? Nurp. Got me some lightning in a bottle and gravity in an...eyeball. Makes sense. I mostly used Barrage when I wanted to get through a little skirmish quickly instead of messing around with the other two bombs or against shadow resistant enemies, in which case explosive pine cones. I still remember luring Greavers into it and orbiting them around while tossing Barrages over my shoulder. Good times. I still do that in these times. People give me the strangest expressions and sounds. One time a guy belched on his mic. I should get a mic to belch constantly. See how many times I get kicked.
That should be enough about bombs for now. For swords I have no doubt in my mind: Gran Faust.
It was the second sword I used following Vanquisher line. I took this thing everywhere as soon as I got it. This was before I started getting into bombing. Funny thing, before getting into bombing the only armor set I used was Plate. It only made it to 4* before bombing stole all my attention from it. A few months after switching over to bombing I upgraded the helmet and torso to Volcanic, but the shield only became 5* earlier today. I made it into Ironmight. Glowy crown symbol. Anyway, swords; this was a while before Brandishes got their charge buffed, not that I ever used one until a few months later. Right now the charge attack releases a series of explosions suiting the star rank, but back then that was just the maximum amount. Remember, I only started getting into using them after they were buffed when I got a +2 charge UV on a lucky craft on a Combuster I was working on, but it was still 3* before the buff. It was really unreliable. Everyone was carrying DAvengers and Leviathans around dealing all kinds of fancy damage, but being as spiteful as I am I did the opposites: Vanquisher and GFaust. Not because I hate everyone, I would do something far different if that were the case. My first sword line was Vanquisher but when I started GFaust it was stuck at 4* for a while and only became 5* a while after I settled into bombing, but GFaust was my fir- no, third 5* item. My first two were my MadB set. I swung that purple oversized lightsaber everywhere while everyone else spammed DAvenger charge attacks. They had the old charge pattern where the left and right projectiles started at the left and right of your knight instead of just coning out kind of in front of you, but it was still great damage. Not that I knew. By the time I made my DAvenger the change had long happened already. I basically used GFaust like a Troika but with faster swings. If I could hold it with both hands I would have, even with that big sled attached to my left arm, to cut the heads off everything and send them down to hell; then jump down after them to cut them up some more. It was a messed up phase.
This third one has no competition ever: Valiance.
Originally I made it just to annoy people passively, unlike Pulsars vomiting everywhere, only to find the modest knockback and interruption incredibly useful as a bomber. Again, hit 5* before the buff, now the whole alchemy line has the knockback and interruption. Now newbies get to enjoy it and hopefully become future bombers. Not all of them, just some. An army of bombers would be too hilarious and improbable. Back when I got this utility bayonet everyone prided themselves on calling it useless. I think someone else who was writing guides at the time, none of which I read because this was before I started derping around on the forums, discussed the usefulness of Valiance but evidently a lot of people dismissed it. There are still people who call it useless today simply because it has pure normal damage and so does Iron Slug, and since people call Iron Slug horrible that must mean Valiance is just as bad, right? Silly. Very silly. Valiance is the kind of gun you take when you kind of want to bring a sword to help you in close range but also want to have the advantage of distant attacks, but not necessarily as a primarily used weapon. Something you can switch to every once in a while and derp out some boolits. It lacks the pre-shot delay Antiguas and Autoguns have, meaning it can punch Devilites and Wolvers without any attack speed bonuses, though not necessarily with the solid damage a Callahan would deal. It also helps against Greavers when they want to hug you a little too much when all you want to do is throw a Barrage in their faces.
Do I really have to pick just one favorite? I would have to say Graviton, but the first runner up would be Voltaic followed by Valiance. I take my old Graviton almost everywhere. Candlestick Keep, Grimalkins? Nurp. Got me some Graviton. I could use Electron instead and use it for damage but getting Krogmo tokens is not on my "do this or suffer a lonely and painful demise" list. How about a parade of gremlins trying to honk those tubas? Nurp. Graviton. Right up the bu-
One brownie point to Snarfalarkus for Swagger Storm. I would get one myself if an interesting Krogmo minigame came out other than Bomberman and a cheap imitation of TF2.
This post looks bigger than it did when writing it. Night night.
Favorite Bomb: Stagger Storm/Voltaic Tempest
Reason: SS/VT for Lockdown for its obvious utilities. I'm not really into bombs though.
Favorite Sword: Most Brandish-lines. Voltedge/Combuster, specifically.
Reason: Mobile, and to be honest, OP damage imo for their mobility. Divine Avenger's charge is broken (PvE) otherwise I'd add it to the list for just pure power. Brandish-lines are fast and deadly weapons in both PvP and PvE.
Favorite Gun: Argent Peacemaker.
Reason: Fast, powerful, very mobile, quick reload, s'all good.
Overall Favorite: Argent Peacemaker.
Reason: I use full Deadshot (Giving a bonus of ASI: Med and Undead: VH), and my Argent Peacemaker has the innate Undead: Med with an ASI: VH UV on it, resulting in Undead/ASI MAX on my AP. The ASI for firing is hardly noticeable, but the reload speed is where the ASI kicks in. It's extremely fast. These bonuses make it the most flexible and versatile gun for FSC.
Many argue that Blitz is better by spamming charge attacks, but I find that rather boring, not to mention I have a distaste for slow/sluggish weapons in general.
@Luguiru: You've got way too much time on your hands.
Hard one, I'm torn between Voltaic Tempest and Dark Briar Barrage.
I started my bombing career with a Shiver like 90% of the people I believe, at first it was nice, after a while I started despising it because the no-knockback hurts me more than letting my enemies walk around, which is why moving to Voltaic felt like being in heaven, but a kind of heaven where enemies take massive damage over time, whenever I solo FSC or arenas and I find myself before a huge spawn I just drop VTs in rapid succession and enjoy watching as enemies get covered by a veil of twentynine and thirty and get crippled in the meantime.
As for DBB, I have a fetish for snarby, really, I have a life-sized cardboard replica of Snarby in my room and I kiss it every night... With tongue.
Jokes aside, it was my first damage bomb (yes, I don't have a Nitro yet) and I've yet to meet something funnier than catching a big spawn of wolvers or gremlins and making them helplessly roll to death.
I think my choice here would be DA.
I only have three swords (and a hammer) up to 5* with a Vanquisher on its way (why vanquisher? Well, let's face it, it looks way cooler than a lameviathan) so I don't really have much choice here, my first love was Barbarous thorn blade, because, y'know, Snarby boner and whatnot, but after I got it I was largely disappointed in the charge attack, I still love it but less than I used to.
My story with DA was different tho, at the time I first saw one all I had was a Calibur, a Snarble barb and a Sealed sword, and I was farming jellyboy like a crazy horse to upgrade my SS to Faust so I could farm Jellyboy like a crazier horse (pretty unoriginal, I know), then a guy came along with his Divine Avenger and I instafell for its charge attack ditching completely the idea of getting a Faust, at first it was painful, because avenger's charge isn't all that great and I largely regretted not getting a Faust with its crazy dmg on jellies and the ability to curse JK, but as time went by and I started farming RT and FSC I knew it was the right choice all along.
It's the only gun I have.
VT/DBB I f**king love blasting stuff.
Stagger is so, so worth it. Only 300 krogmos for that beauty; never spend them better than on Stagger~
Bomb: Voltaic Tempest
As a gunner, I like having my enemies as far away from me as my range will allow. Voltaic Tempest allows me to do this with an INCREDIBLY annoying status effect: shock. I would have gone with Shivermist Buster for this, but ice can be easily broken off with a couple of attacks.
Sword: Leviathan Blade
A straightforward, normal damage sword with a great charge attack for keeping away faster, more persistent enemies like Wolvers.
Gun: Argent Peacemaker/Sentenza
Fast bullets, large clip size, high DPS, fast reload. What is there not to love about this gun!?
As a natural gunner, I prefer guns over everything else; being able to constantly deal damage with mobility. With an Elite Quickdraw, a Justifier/Nameless item, and a Medium ASI on the guns, Maximum ASI will make these guns overwhelming in PvE, and sometimes PvP.
Srsly, Volcanic just sounds like a godmode haze that we, sadly, do not have because OOO hates bombers.
BOMB: Dark retribution.
Because it's simply the only 5-star bomb I have.
Freezes stuff, looks boss, er... freezes stuff. Not to mention, I slaughter the undead with the bonus it has.
GUN: Argent Peacemaker.
Offers high mobility, a large clip size and the charge is like a blitz needle. Just not as strong, but the lack of movement and the 5 bullet volley, yeah.
Because I never get a UV higher than Medium. I got it off the AH as a brandish for 30k.
You happy? I fixed it.
Bomb: Nitrome. Just spammity spam spam in corner and watch those poor mechaknights fall apart as they try to get closer.
Sword: Gran Faust. I always liked heavy swords and the light side wasn't so attracting for me...
Gun: Do I have one? Oh yeah, I do... Dunno tho, long time since I used one.
Overall: Nitrome... I want to throw it at enemy!
Bomb : I swear i almost never touch the bomb
Sword : Acheron : shadoe damage, safe version of faust, and awesome look with shogun helm
Gun : Biohazard : Diet course for jelly king
Overall : Acheron ftw
Favourite bomb: Voltaic Tempest
Sadly I'm inept bomber (although I'm trying to improve whenever possible) so I usually use bombs only as status dealers rather then damage dealers - and I just find Shock the most useful status. Especially with Kats.
Favourite sword : N/A
The only swords I have is Dread Venom Striker and Warmaster Rocket Hammer. I sometimes use DVS when entering levels with lots of shrubs to speed up harvesting them and actually I may kill a few monster on the way too, but then again, the levels with shrubs are inhabited by monsters that one can easily defeat with Proto Sword, so it's not a big deal. I've never learned to use WRH so I really can't say it's my favourite. I'm fully satisfied with DVS, but I wouldn't call it favourite because I don't have much experience with other swords.
Favourite gun: Valiance and Umbra Driver
If I really had to chose only one I'd go with Valiance. Luiguru already said it all. I love my Valiance from day one, a long time before the buff, and I advocated for it many times. Valiance is good and safe choice in case of more demanding monsters (it does rock against Greavers), whereas Umbra Driver is damage dealer to large groups of weaklings like jellies, wolvers and such. Especially if you charged it. Why Umbra amongst the alchemers? Well, Nova Driver is great as well, but personally I've just found out I like to use alchemer against elemental resistant monsters more often then against shadow resistant ones.
Overall Favourite: Valiance
I'm not good with bombs enough (yet) to feel fully comfortable with one, and I don't use swords much at all, so the only choice for "best of all" is my favourite gun category choice.
Favorite bomb: Dark Retribution
I'm not much of a bomber, at least not yet, so this sort of wins by default as the only 5-star bomb I own. Even without that, though, it's massively fun to use, especially in the Royal Jelly Palace. If you get two of them going at once, you can just tear through whole hordes of slimes or lichens. It's not half-bad against gremlins, either, although those do tend to be a bit more dodge-happy. The Nitronome seems like it could be fun too, especially for trolling, but I still have that stuck at Master Blast Bomb for now.
Favorite sword: Leviathan Blade
Have to go with the old stand-by. It's the very first weapon I upgraded up to 5-star, and indeed the only 5-star item I owned at all for a long time. Sure, it's the most basic sword in the game, and the all-normal damage means there are superior choices for pretty much every sword of enemy, but I still don't care. It's Old Reliable, the sword I can take everywhere to get the job done, albeit a bit slower than more specialized stuff. And dat charge. Dodging around a turret to unleash a full spin barrage just never gets old.
Favorite gun: Polaris (though really Gigawatt Pulsar for now)
This one was a bit tougher, as I tend to use guns as much more of a sidearm than a primary weapon, so I switch them out frequently depending on the situation. I do enjoy the Valiance as my sole 5-star representative, though it winds up being somewhat underpowered in many circumstances. "Trollaris" label aside, the Polaris line is a lot of fun to use and allows for excellent area control.
Overall favorite: Gotta go with the Levi Blade as the sentimental choice.
Why would you post a 5* weapons thread in New Recruits?
Thas a good point o_o
Eg. Winmillion(for me Epicfailmillon
-The Electron Vortex. Lets face it, this thing has crazy utility and usefulness. Also works well in combination with other various weapons.
-Volcanic Pepperbox. Its normal attack may not be the best, but it has a rockin' charge, and the fire helps as well.
-My Triglav. Its quite smashing (pun intended). The freeze keeps enemies locked in place for me to unload another mountain of pain upon them
-The Irontech Destroyer. Its stun is fun, and it may be slow,but the knockback is great. Powerful too.
Dread Venom Striker
It's speed is very satisfying, if you know how to control it (which I do). And the poison status weakens enemies so i can kill them faster. (My version of it has a Damage Bonus: Undead Low to it)
Honestly, the main reason why i went with this instead of a Polaris is because I think that Polaris is too mainstream. I mean, the majority of players I see have it. So i went with Supernova just to be a little different.
The knockback this gun causes because of it's explosions have saved me so many times. Keeps those enemies at bay.
Bomb- for support use, the electron vortex, specially with my triglav, since it keeps enemies put till youre ready to smash them and therefore reduces kiting time. for itself, well, i cant be sure, since im no bomber. guess id go with the shock mist bombs
Sword- Triglav. all-rounder, easy-to-get (in my opinion) sword. deals good damage and completely nullifies crowds. Flamberge for the devilites, since nobody loves them.
Gun- mainly for sword support- a voltech alchemer line and a blaster line gun. i dont use these as only weapons either
Dark Retribution is the only one I have, but I'd love to get DBB for it's phantom snarby
Tie Between 5* hammer and BTB
Hammer for it's puppy smashing and slag bashing goodness, and BTB for it's awesome speed and looks
Trollaris, for it's amazing crowd control and shock - great for keeping hordes of angry slags away from you in fsc and hammering puppies from afar
Hammer - the uniqueness of the combo and the crowd control capabilities of the charge make it my go-to weapon levels that aren't gremlin or beast themed
Wrong forums, move to arsenal
I hate swords so N/A
If I had to choose one,
Hipster minus Luguiru
Hipsterest of the hipster
Favorite Bomb: Shivermist Buster
Why: Well it dominates PvP and FSC so yeah. :P
Favorite Sword: Glacius
Why: Well lets see... Charging up and hitting something then they get freeze and repeat the process? Sounds epic to me.
Favorite Gun: Valiance
Why: Awesome in PvP. Deals massive damage if you are a recon and you death mark the enemy.
Overall: Hm... Glacius of course! :D
Why: Well I kinda already explained that. ._.
Bomb:Big Angry Bomb
it's a five star electric sord
exploding electric bullets
Warmaster Rocket Hammer
Since I got it I never go anywhere without it! It so powerful and has saved my life multiple times, also my war cry when using the hammer is: IT'S HAMMER TIME!
I just LOVE spamming nitromes everywhere, they are powerful fast and fun.
I'm not much of a gunner but this gun is easy to get and balanced on everything, I use it as a last resort.
Warmaster Rocket Hammer
IT'S HAMMER TIME!
Is this^ a necro? And does it matter since Lug posted here? Anyway...
Sword: Cold Iron Vanquisher
Why? Because it has chains. Chains are cool.
And... that's all the 5* weapons I have.
It's like a nice combination of Ash Of Agni & Shivermist Buster. Does damage and affects enemies ability to move. While the damage fromt he shock spasms doesn't do a lot, it's often enough to take away the last of an enemies health after a sword combo. I actually prefer the VT's spasms to Shiver's freeze, I find it safer as enemies can still attack easily with Shiver.
Dread Venom Striker:
My favourite all round sword as poison is always handy. Takes some getting used to but when used right it can do massive damage, especially with the charge! I love using only DVS for whole arcade runs, when I'm heating other lesser star weapons - a good challenge. Combine the charge with a vortex bomb and you're on to a winner.
Some prefer using the status Drivers over the Nova's damage increase, but I prefer having an overall damage increase for all situations than worrying about stratums where the status would be useless. The charge on this thing does so much damage, I've been able to take out 3 enemies with one charge shot sometimes in FSC!
I just feel so powerful with this sword. It looks great, and I love the sound effect of cursing something. Kicks ass in Lockdown, and it does so much damage in general it can pretty much be used for every enemy apart from Fiends/Undead.
Favorite Bomb: Big Angry Bomb
~Its big, powerful, and is the coolest looking bomb in my opinion
Favorite Sword: TRIGLAV
~I like the charge, its great for the Fire Storm Citadel, and the sword itself is very cool.
Favorite Gun: Volcanic Pepperbox
~Its a Blitz Needle that sets things on fire. Need I say more?
Overall favorite: Triglav
~My first 5* weapon, it really suits my playing style which is charging up and smashing things. Because it deals normal damage it is my go to sword for anywhere in the clockworks.
Combuster is best pony.
basically i love all bombs, name it all, dbb, graviton, electron, shiver, ash, venom, stagger, i just want to use them all in a run... oh except shard bombs(learning to love it)
but my fav will always be nitronome. who doesnt want a big smile? ouuu yeah been spamming nitro all the way to vana. staying at corner keeping the monster away from you? no i push them to the corner and rape them to death with my nitro.
combuster. burn baby burn!!! even oilers, i dont care. just burn!!!
gun? what is that? pew pew pew i aint got time for gun. all i want is big and flashy explosion!!! valiance is good enough for me handy for switching and killing monster out of sword and bomb range but rarely use it.
ill go with nitro. there's nothing it cant kill. pure damage with good knockback to troll teammates and send monster flying across the room. not to forget the daily dose of smiles you get from the bomb.
Never really used Bombs, but probably Ash of Agni.
"I dont want to set the World on Fire.." So this room will do.
Combuster, since it's the end result of the Brandish I bought.
The Brandish being the 1st sword I got after Proto.
That and its really good at dispatching Undead.
Sentenza, At the moment I only have a BlackHawk but even so,
Thanks to its Gremlin Bonus Ive survived many a Deconstruction Level, and a few sticky Situations besides.
Plus I love the Antigua Style & design.
It has sentimental value over the others.
Best charge of swords, not bad speed, good combo.
Maybe charge is lame, but it hits fast.
I <3 that op gun and its knockback. It rescued meh so much times.
I rather don't use bombs, but i could say the best one I have is Dark Retribution.
I like it op CTR and DPS.
So to start off...
Bombs: Easily my favorite is RSS Radiant Sun Shards, obviously this isn't a five star weapon but it does (now) have a five star, so you yourself can upgrade it. I have had my Sun Shards since I started this game a really long time ago, and it was my first bomb because I didn't realize it stopped at four stars, but when I did realize this it didn't bother me too much because it was one of the most used weapons by me at the time (the whole reason I had a mad bomber suit). Then something sad happened it was nerfed, and in retaliation it has mostly sat in my inventory as a reminder of the old RSS, my mad bomber suit was sold to a friend and bombing to me has been kind of sad since. I've learned to be okay with using the new shard bombs and I even use it in tier 2 lockdown all the time, not really to do damage but to scare people that aren't wolver clones or people who know that it doesn't hurt to come get me to go away. But overall shard bombs are pretty fun and most bombers have one to mess around with to test things.
Guns: Easy this one is, Biohazard, I absolutely adore this gun, I may not use it often but when I start I can't stop~! I love the slow bullets sometimes, along with the insane charge attack it has, one it barely takes any time to charge even without any UV's and it's so fun to spam the charge on the biggest monster kite it in with the rest of the monsters and set it off~! I just find it so rewarding and it feels like a great achievement to watch that just go boom~!
Swords: hmm, this one took me a while to think about as I have two big ones that I love soooo much, which are my Snarby Barb, and my Triglav. One is slow one is fast one is heavy one is light, and to me they go together like cheese and sprinkles~! (obvious Rio reference) these swords are my favorite because the charge from my trig leaves things stuck for my Snarby to trash them. Not to mention its a fun pair to use together.
Favorite? Winmillion, why? Because I can and two you trash talked about it when it is a lovely weapon with only a couple flaws, it is by far my favorite weapon to use when I don't want to be serious whatsoever. Thank you for reading I hope it helps :).
Sword: My CTR VH Voltedge. Charge spam style. For some obvious reasons.
Gun: Volt Driver. Just for the fun of having trillions of bullets.
Bomb:Hm....To be honest, I dont like bombs a helluva lot, but if I had to choose one, it would be DR. I dont actually own one, but my friend let me try it out on his account(no i did not hack him) and it was awesome. I killed JK in 29 seconds.
My Favorite Bomb?
-Nitronome. Its so powerful it can kill even my teammates (it was really fun killing my teammates i have to admit).
My Favorite Gun?
-Valiance. I really liked this gun since it saved my life so many times.
My Favorite Sword?
-Calibur/Dread Venom Striker. This two actually made me thought really crazy just to figure out whats the best, but for me their both the same so they're my favorites.
-Valiance. It makes my near Invincible since nothing will get close enough to kill me, and even Gun Pups in T3 can't catch me. (Veteran Gunslinger)
The only T3 bomb I have is the DR. And shadow damage is cool.
I bought a Prismatech MKll on the AH for about 13500cr. When I discovered about vendoring I got enough money to make a prisma driver and a daring rigadoon. I'll get to the toothpick later. When I crafted the prisma, I got the worst UV. Gremlin VH. After using both models in FSC, I then got a Blitz. I feel more bonded to my nova then my blitz because blitz would be considered a support weapon without FSC.
My first sword was a flourish which I crafted into a Rigadoon. After I bought my Prismatech MKll, I began farming JK. I got enough money to buy a brandish and use the one Bosco gave me to craft a Fireburst and a Nightblade. After tons of farming and buying tons of rock salts and Dragon Scales later, I reached T3 with a Miracle hood, Rocky Mail, a Wise Owlite Shield, a Blazebrand, and a Silent Nightblade. After farming In Cold Blood and The Great Escape, I got a GFC (before Chaos buff), switched from Rocky Mail to Mercurial Mail, a Combuster, and a GOS. I didn't upgrade to Achreon and still haven't. I gained access to Vanaduke and used the set mentioned above. I haven't used my SNB after deciding on a T2 LD set and rediscovering my Prismatech MKll. Until I traded CE for OCH. I used it only on fifteen levels and then said goodbye to it after not using it after. My favorite sword is my Combuster, then my future Fearless Rigadoon, then the WRH which I am almost done heating.
Overall, I bring my Combuster to all my LD matches and runs.
I don't need no 5* bomb
I don't need no 5* sword
I don't need no 5* gun
Proto all the way
Favourite Bomb: Dark Briar Barrage
- Makes the Beast level runs easier and it's the only bomb I love to spam
Favourite gun: Hail Driver
- Saved my party a few times by freezing the Tortos in place, plus the ricochets makes trick shots to trigger ghost blocks(Emerald Axis II fast exit)/switches that are otherwise unreachable by normal means
Favourite sword: Archeron
- Exceptional damage, plus the 4 monster families that aren't resistant to shadow tend to bunch up together in the same clockwork levels.
Overall favourite: Archeron
Favourite bomb: Electron Vortex. Not much of a bomber but EV is by far the most fun and awesome bomb, great for vana, plus SHOCK! Plus the knockback is less than Grav so its a win win :D
Favourite Sword: Glacius/BTB. I've had the Glacius for 4 years and honestly i've never taken it out of my loadout. It's freeze makes killing things so much easier. Now I only got the BTB a while ago but i gotta say its looks and its usefullness are amazing. Beast levels are made easier as enemies that dodge a lot like wolvers are easier to aim at and hit (unlike blitz needles...). The charge is pretty useful though unlike most people believe; The knockback and the sheer awesomeness of the charge is good enough for me. I mean snarby just comes and bites the enemy! More fun to use than FF...
Favourite Gun: Obsidian Carbine/Polaris. Hard decision here but if I HAD to pick one then polaris. I play keyboard controls so gunning is difficult and you don't need much gunning skill to use polaris. Big explosions that shock and knock enemies back? Yes please! Now Obsidian Carbine is nice because it poisons (not many weps do that), fast bullets and the charge is epic. Needless I say that its a cool shadowy EVENT weapon! But polaris has saved me from utter death situations waaaay too many times, and keeps enemies at bay really well, so I'm gonna go with the Trollaris :DDD
Overall fav? Glacius! Well I've already explained...da Glacius just too reliable! ;)
Favo(u)rite Bomb: Graviton Vortex
Cuz I'm bland and don't experiment with bombs.
Favorite Sword: Glacius OR Warmaster Rocket Hammah
I got REALLY lucky with making a first time brandish, and got CTR VH and ASI Med, SOMEHOW, and started using that alot. It dealt great damage normally, especially with Swiftstrike, and the charge was so spam-worthy that it was... spam-worthy. Half the time it froze enemies (while the other half they get frozen, but a charge blast knocked em out of it), so that was great, since Ice stratas are kinda rare nowadays.
For WRH, that just straight out does great DPS with it's hits (plus dash hits), and although the charge is a dangerous, it can knock players away, or off of elevators, so the amount of tomfoolery is a +1.
Favouourite Gun: Argent Peacemaker / Blitz
I just loved the fast paced damage, and since I got an Undead UV on it, it was an awesome skellyman killah. The charge is dumb, but normal attacks, ho...? What sucked most is that, more often then not, a bullet disappears from this mortal realm in a fit of lag. But any gun is like that, so...
Also I like Blitz because I'm original. Am I cool yet mom?
Electron Vortex is undoubtedly one of the best bombs for efficiently taking out rooms of enemies, especially in FSC. But my favorite bombs are mist bombs, nitronome, and dark briar barrage. Mist bombs are always useful in debilitating opponents, nitronome is really well rounded as a defensive and versatile bomb, dark briar barrage can easily take out gremlins and beasts efficiently.
Alchemer line is definitely my favorite line of guns. Once mastered, you basically have also mastered the more advanced fundamentals of the game, *and* who doesn't love seeing ricochets flying everywhere? Other than alchs, magnuses are also my fave, for their devastating charge attack and single switching capabilities ( normal shot can knockdown squishy enemies like gremlins and beasts, and, can cancel/flinch enemies, like turrets)
Can't really say I got a favorite here, I mean, 4 different moveset of swords aren't too much of a variety. Narrow and wide movesets. Narrow being brandishes, cutters, caliburs. Wide being heavy swords and flourish sets. If I were to choose though, it'd be warmaster rocket hammer for its rad dash attack, making it stand out and be more fun than other swords. Of course, there's the niche weapons such as voltedge for fsc, and flourish for LD, blah blah blah. I'd just love to see the winmillion get a 5* version though
Alchemers are definitely my favorite, although hard, they're beasts when mastered.
Bomb: Electron Vortex!
Extremely fun! Creates a vortex! Deals shock! (Which imo is an extremely usefull status).
You can just gather the enemies together and deal immense AOE with like brandish-line swords.
Sword: Warmaster Rocket Hammer!
Deals immense elemental (constructs and undead are very common) damage and has incredible knock back. The second hit of the combo can hit many times against stationary or cornered enemies, though you can shield cancel to make it into a standard 3 hit. Lastly, there's always the power to push an afk player who's been dead the entire mission through a treasure room and straight to the elevator.
High damage+high knockback+very versatile+trolling potential= A really good "sword".
Gun: Blitz Needle
I actually don't have many guns, so Blitz is an obvious choice. Besides that, however, its damage output is insane. Its innate CTR combined with sprite CTR low and chaos armor is an easy Max CTR. It is also (obviously) good at killing trojans and Vana, but you can kill many other non construct/slime enemies easily.
Overall: Still Rocket Hammer
Ever since getting this weapon, there have been few missions where i haven't had this equipped. I have no other weapon that is capable of all the things WRH can do. (It's also good for knocking zombies out of totem range)
Favourite bomb: dark retribution
it's the only 5* bomb I have.
Favourite sword: leviathan blade
360º attack, normal damage, 3 hits under right conditions. what's not to like?
I don't have a five star gun. yet... (I have 3 four star guns)
Overall Favourite: leviathan blade
this thing's saved my life hundreds of times. I don't know what I would do without it.
Bomb: Shivermist because freeze is probs the best haze bomb status.
Gun: Grim Repeater because I just think shadow blitz is better than pierce blitz.
Sword: Idk combuster or whatever.
Overall: Shivermist because I <3 bombs.
Dark retribution-fun. Cool. Unique.
Gun-mixmaster/orbit gun - I don't have it, but it can do a ton of damage. I also like the figure 8 pattern which you can hit multiple targets, and things for easy clearence
Sword-Voltedge-Shock. Looked at as the strongest elemental brandish. The shock will disrupt enemy attacks, and is really good for vanaduke.
Overal favourite?- maskeraith. Jk voltedge.
Silvermist Buster - Immobilizes enemies by freezing them
Argent Peacemaker - sweet aganist undead
Divine Avenger - Again Sweet aganist undead
Overall - Divine Avenger
