What is your weapon preference?

    I'm interested to see what weapons type gets used the most? I'm personally a spear or broadsword man for a primary, and a chakram or boomerang for a secondary.

    What do you use?

    Spear and Akimbo's (2 one handed guns)
    Sometimes also shield and a gun if necessary

    I actually like how staves work now, so I use them. Back before they changed how the magic system worked, it was abysmally terrible and not worth going for on any level, but now it's decent enough to where I like to use it. (though it's still super underpowered in quite a few cases)

    I'm not a big fan of Stbd's spears, surprisingly. I love spears. And halberds.

    Interesting! I've never tried two handed pistol wielding. Personally, I've never been a fan of the shields. Of course, this means I burn through bandages SUPER quickly. But I guess once you have end-game armor it isn't that bad.

    That's cool! I've never been a fan of the staves or wands myself. I guess I never got used to the high damage but really low rate of fire. Though I can't judge anyone for using weird weapons, I use the neo chakram which isn't all that good for my style. It looks so cool though :/

    Before staves stopped sucking, I used fists. Which weren't even remotely decent at the time either, but hey, they were hella neat.

    Hmm... With secondary attacks around, I seem to base a lot around them.

    I tend to use a broadsword if I find one with Super Spin Slash, I'll use a staff if I can find one with a healing field.

    Otherwise I really love the Erchius Eye, flashy purple lasers and crystals have always been my thing and I'm glad it's upgradeable now.

    I tend to use the procedural short-swords and machine pistols until I reach tier 5 items, then I switch to the Violuim Shortsword and Agisalt Pistol as my primary weapons, since that load out allows me to have a health item in my off hand all the time. For boss fights I tend to use rocket launchers that have homing as a secondary attack to counter bosses that move around a lot (Big Ape, Dreadwing, and some Vault Guardians for example).

    I also found out that an upgraded crystal eye is good to use for the Glitch mission replays since both of the weapon's attacks mow down cultists quickly and the beam rips apart the Bone Dragon fast when paired with the Perfectly Generic armor set.

    Double claw fists, the dash is so good. My ranged weapon is a shotgun with the blast secondary attack. It does so much damage, and it pierces.

    Assault Rifle with explosive burst. My personal favorite. No random generated mob can even get close to me.
    When I want to get the job done as fast as possible, double grenade launchers shooting proximity mines.
    When I'm bored, akimbo machine pistols with highest fire rate possible, so I can lock enemies in one place because each hit slows down the enemy.

    I have in my backpack staff with energy zone just in case I want to do a vault and I don't want to wait for energy in last room. Also I keep staff with healing zone for obvious reasons.

    Well I'm already up close to enemies because of my claws, so I figured I can get a shot off with my shotgun first to make sure the dash kills them.

    I use dual-Aegisalt pistols for the time being. I prefer assault rifles, but haven't explored T6 planets enough yet to have a good one. I use a spear as a secondary, but basically never run out of energy. =P

    I use spears primarily, especially if it has whirling blade. 2-handed swords and sword shield as an alternative when I don't have a spear I like. A sniper is secondary along with a smg just in case I want to have distance shots or to initial battle. I have a healing staff I keep in reserve, primary doesn't truly matter since I mainly only use the healing part.

    That is my primary character though. I will use what ever I come across that I like.

    I like using guns in general (especially sniper rifles), but I also love spears with the "Rocket Spear" secondary.
