Realistically, you'd get stuck with a cheap sword and maybe a crappy pistol, if you're lucky. A sock n' a rock probably are closer to what you'd end up with.

HOWEVER, if given the option to take anything ludicrously rare and/or destructive, I think a vortex grenade and an absurd amount of luck to make sure it didn't hit me would be perfect. A heavy bolter and a chainsword light enough for a normal man to lift would have to be a close second choice, I think...

A SM scout "knife" (more like a short sword) and an autogun.

A suit of Aegis power armor. CC weapons are second when you can beat people into the dirt with your ceramite-clad fists and storm bolter. Plus, I can always take those egregiously rare weapons they obviously entrust to us and use them after their ower has been reduced to an unpleasant stain.


You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

Well since the OP only sugests something handheld.
i say force habard and storm shield..Sniper rifle in my back.

So hide, snipe
drop the gun, grab the stormbolter equpied weapon and shield.

no armor as that was not the question, also nothing to heavy, the force halbard may be a streach as it does take 2h, but shields can leave a hand free to brace the weapon on.

I would find it very funny to see you attempt to fire the sniper rifle with lightning claws, or the alternative you trying to put on the Lightning claws while someone is charging at you.

I'd just go for a Boltgun with stalker silenced shells and M40. targeter, with a guard chainsword for back up. Alot of people have mentioned bolter recoil, but self-propelled ammunition means this isn't a problem. You want to snipe me? My sniper weapon fires explosive ammo the size of your fist at a far greater speed then you fire. Close combat? You'll get shot to pieces or find yourself unable to properly wield your over-heavy weapons. Armour? It wasn't in the question, and much of it will just slow you down...

I choose Drachnyen+Talon of Horus for some OMGWTFBBQPWNAGE...

Short of that I would be just fine playing around with a Neuro Guantlet/Needle pistol and Combat drugs.
