Gear-heads question

Just curious to hear for those who love GoW 1 or 2. Whats your favorite weapon combo or one-two punch move you like to use in multiplayer?

Mine personally is throw smoke/bang in a sniper nest and waltz in with a reved chainsaw to teach'em a lesson or when I get my hands on a torque bow and someone rushes me I shoot it at their feet and melee onceit blows up, gets'em everytime.

Hmm, i don't know if I would say chainsawing someone is being a newb sure if you touch someone with it its an insta-kill put you have to TOUCH someone with it. If you let someone get that close to you or sneak up on you, you should be more aware of your suroundings. I also love you they nerfed to shotty to now its harder to snipe someone with it.

So what, no one should ever use the lancer anymore? Yeah, that'll get fun fast, limit yourself to choice A or B even if choice C is a bit overpowering.

Pretty much every weapon has its good points.
Lancer has the saw - no matter how many times i see it in action, it always makes me smile.
Hammerburst is good for midrange shooting and is good for getting headshots.
Sniper is great fun - some people forget to move while in cover, so if you get up high then you can see their head just sitting there.
Boomshot is a bit underpowered i reckon - if the blast was a bit bigger it would be fun.

personally, i'm gonna go with Lancer and Hammerburst, with a Boltok.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

My favorite combo was Torque Bow and Lancer, with the Boltok.

I love that they balanced all the weapons so that you actuallty have a better chance with the other main weapons. In Gears1 if you were good with the shotty you destroyed everybody.

Gotta agree with that, its partly why I prefer multiplayer in gears two over gears one. Though again, I don't see why theres much reason to hate the lancer; its not like its terribly easy to walk up to someone and chainsaw them. (And your just as likely to die from a shotgun up close to the back as a chainsaw to the back, or being stuck, or a mortar landing on your head.)

all the weapons are evenly matched in gears 2 which is a good thing. the locust rifle is very good for headshots and is a fair bit more powerful than the lancer but fires slower and strafes off a lot. LAncer average all round apart from melee but is slow to start up. shotgun good for close to mid range. also fairly decent with blind firing due to spray. niper rifle is a hard weapon to use to it's full advantage as body shots are not instant kill anymore but still good against the bigger guys like boomers and theron guard....

I personally always adapt. I always carry the lancer, best general weapon, then either the shotgun or locust rifle but change that to sniper rifle, flamer, whatever's needed at that time and if it's available... The pistol again is up to you. I prefer the Cog one.... faster firing and less strafing

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
