Which three guns do you carry?

Which three guns (pre-order guns dno't work for me) do you usually carry or recommend carrying?

A lot of people seem to like the Assault Rifle, but I've found it to be a bit weak and personally I prefer the Heavy Machine Gune. There isn't much use in carrying both is there?

Even a fully upgraded lock on lasers didn't seem to do much damage for me. I didn't get to fully upgrade the rocket launcher on my playthrough but I understand that you get to carry way more than 3? Then perhaps it could be handy to have.

LFE and disc launcher didn't seem to do enough damage for me, may be I needed to have upgraded them or I wasn't using them properly?

Especially for my Hard playthrough, what do you recommend or what did you take for your Hard/God Hard playthrough?

Cheers.

Assault Rifle, Heavy Machine Gun, and Disc Launcher. The DL I never use as a gun, but the melee move on it is awesome, and you can really spam it. Particularly useful on Romanov's, the Unknown, and those Viper things.

Assault Rifle, Heavy Machine Gun, and the Disc Launcher, but I'll probably change it for another weapon, as I don't like it too much.

Yes, that is correct. You can just bash away with it over and over. Very useful.

max lvl Assault rifle for my usual needs of killing with 1200 rounds plus good distance, if u aim for the head there dead in a few rounds
max lvl shotgun for the bosses, AR mode+pointblank = crystal viper dead in 16-20 shots, takes like a min to kill
for the 3rd, whatever, if its a hard boss, than rocket launcher, but its its multiple Romanov its LFE gun just to give myself space, tho oddly i defeated Burns with a sniper rifle on hard :s

i dont use melee very often, but i use the slide kick+ar for the kills just for fun, and for stuff like the "unknown" use ar with assault rifle, then emp grenade with assault rifle and to fin emp with assault rifles melee attack, where u button bash the B button to get to multi punch combo, totally sweet end

FYI the disk launcher is the only weapon that allows you to use melee without overheat

Heavy Machine Gun for when things get hairy up close, Assault Rifle for better accuracy on distant targets and LFE or Rocket Launcher to get me out of a bind quick and fast.

Heavy Machinegun for general goons - once it's fully upgraded, it's got good enough accuracy to tag remote targets. Disk-launcher mostly for meele, but it's also good against groups, since the discs bounce around a lot.

The last one depends on the situation. Usually a Rocketlauncher if I can find one, for dealing with the really big stuff - and no, you never get to carry more than 3 rockets. Upgrades just increase damage and reduce lock-on time. If there's lots of remote enemies, I'll pick up a sniper-rifle instead. Otherwise, I'll just take whatever I can find to suit the situation. Multi-Lockon-Laser is nice for dealing with multiple foes at long range, since it's accurate and doesn't require you to pop out of cover for more than a second or two... LED gun for dealing with groups closing in on you, assault-rifle for backup if you're running out of Heavy Machinegun ammo, Shotgun for dealing with heavies and bosses in close combat...

I have the preorder guns, so the three I used most were HMG, AR, and Laser Cannon. The HMG is easiest to upgrade because it seems like its drops more than the other guns, plus it does really good damage. The AR has range and accuracy, plus its large ammo capacity makes up for lack of damage. It also seems to drop alot as well. The laser cannon is a beast and you dont have to worry about ammo as it uses your suits power.

For you I would definalty use the HMG and AR. As your third weapon I would go shotgun or disk launcher. Both of these are good for close quarter combat. The disk launcher is great for melee attacks because it uses ammo rather than your suits power, so you can rush 2 or 3 RIs and melee all three, whereas with your suit after one melee attack it overheats.

*EDIT*

Just a side note, it is important to know what you are up against as some weapons far better than others against certain opponents and in certain circumstances. When I ended my first playthrough on Hard I had all weapons fully upgraded. So even if you use a standard loadout, it is easy to still pick up weapons and upgrade them, then swap back to your loadout before leaving a stage.

Fully upgraded Anti-armor Pistol. Insane damage really, as in "go on, eat the damn wood pie or the space beaver gets it"-insane. It kills anything and everything the games throws at you on medium.

Fully upgraded Assault Rifle. Loads of ammo and decent damage.

Rocket Launcher or Sniper Rifle depending on the situation, I mostly favor the RL though.

Heavy machine gun, LFE gun and rocket launcher
A fully upgraded LFE is the best in the game imo, you can stay behind cover and spam it. The lock on laser i use a lot as well, and i would replace the rocket launcher when i run out of ammo

On my first playthrough it was usually AR, Sniper and whatever-else-I-could-find, leaning towards the Rocket Launcher. The shotgun seemed crap at first, but after I saw people raving about it it became a mainstay on my second playthrough.

I still don't get why everyone seems to go for the Heavy Machinegun - it just seems too much like the AR to be worth the other slot.

Didn't think much of the shotgun until i maxed out the upgrades. I can't hit shit at long range so I love the awesome damage it does close in. Found myself leaving the AR behind a lot and just using the HMG, as I said can't shoot to straight so reduced accuracy compared to the AR didn't matter. As with most on the thread, third slot was "horses for courses" either what was needed for the situation or just case of whatever is left and pile it on. Lock on laser is a fave -A bit week on the damage front but loads of fun to use. We'll see if my views change on a harder run through.

I have been carrying the Assualt Rifle because it carrys more ammo and is more accurate. The Rocket Launcher, even if its empty I hold onto it because when I die at a tough boss it automatically fills my ammo, which is very nice on the hard difficulty. And I am a little torn on the third slot. I was using the lock on launcher but it doesnt do much damage so I tend to use the sniper or the LFE gun.

I usually carried around the HMG, Shotgun, and Lock-on Laser until I discovered the effectiveness of the LFE Gun. It can eat through swarms of enemies, kill ball-bots while they are rolling around, and knock over Romanov's on their bellies so you can get a clean shot on them. Great gun, and especially useful in the tactical challenges.
