Your Favorite / Best Multiplayer Loadout?

was just wondering what some of the better kits or combinations were.

Right now I just camp my balls off with this one, but it works very well:

Nail Gun
(any upgrade)

Any Secondary (Pref Rocket Launcher)



Geyser Trap


Any you want, but I like to gear mine towards having enough eve to set new traps and upgrading defensive mechanisms like turrets.

Tactics: Camp your balls off. It's not even funny how easy it is with this kit. Find an area thats easy defendable (2 or less entrances) and electric geyser trap the crap out of it. Even if they get near you, all you have to do is electro bolt so your nail gun can heat up and bam, dead.

Never underestimate the power of spamming geyser traps in doorways.

the shotgun feels really weird to shoot.

like half the time it won't even hit because the range is so gimped.

It all depends on the game mode im playing. If im playing capture the sister i will use machine gun and rocket launcher, my plasmids differ on wether im capturing or defending if im capturing i use ice plus aerodash coz once u grab the little sister u can use aero dash to get the hell out of there. If im defending i use electric bolt plus geyser trap so i can spam them around the entrances and little sister.
If i play anything else i like to experiment and use anything really.

-Machine Gun/Pistol

-Nail Gun/Shotgun

-Winter Blast/Telekinesis

-Speedy Recovery
-Eve Saver
-Expert Researcher

I'm currently level 14 and this is my loadout. I didn't include the add-ons for the weapons because I don't have many choices.

This is what I use most of the time. Though, I am new to the Nail Gun, I love it already. I find this/these loadout(s) to be most effective for me.

Elephant Gun and a shotgun or machinegun as back up. Pistol would work too.

Electrobolt and insect swarm for plasmids

And any tonics really. I like Master researcher, speedy recovery and third one doesn't really matter.

Currently level 20 and I really like this loadout.

I'm only a level 9, so l'll probably have Machine Gun and the Grenade Launcher as my guns, Electro Bolt/Incinerate! combo or Aero Dash/Freeze combo as my plasmids, and Speedy Recovery, Expert Reasearcher, and EVE Saver as my tonics.

I feel there are different tactics needed depending the game type you play and in CTS whether you are capturing or defending.

I also think alot of maps tend to be better suited to different weapons, again especially for CTS.

Anyway I'm currently level 12 and my main setup of choice is:

Primary - Grenade Launcher

Secondary - Pistol

Plasmids - Electro-Bolt - Geyser Trap

I love the Geyser Trap's, as soon as you hit someone fire a grenade with the launcher and chances are they are dead.
*Props to Audacious for the awesome sig!*

I cant stand people that use Winter Breeze to slow someone down because they cant aim a shotgun, but my favorite loadout is probably this:

Increased fire rate

Automatic fire

Aero Dash (for getting all up in their shit with my shotgun)

Incinerate (overcharging makes for an easy kill when fallowed up by the pistol, even on big daddies)

Eve Saver
and the one that lets you recover Eve over time.

I'm still experimenting with combinations, but I've come to love shotgun/geyser. If you hit someone with a geyser in the face (or back) they'll be thrown towards you and your waiting shotgun... How can you not love that?

Best Loadout in my oppinion

Lol, I know this thread is dead, but just in case any1 wants to know the best loadout in the game, I'm going to post it here:

1. Crossbow w/ Increase Damage or, Elephant Gun w/ Increase Damage.
2. Any weapon you like, but I recommend Tommy Gun w/ Fire Rate Increase, or Shotgun w/ Sawed-Off Barrel, or Grenade Launcher w/ Homing.

1. Electro Bolt (a must-have Plasmid)
2. Houdini or any Plasmid

1. EVE Saver
2. Speedy Hacker (or Big Game Hunter)
3. Head Hunter

Use this Loadout and you will increase your K/D Rate. Stun your enemy with Electro Bolt then aim for their head. Because you have Crossbow with Increase Damage (or Elephant Gun with Increase Damage) and Head Hunter (for extra damage), you have 90% chance of killing your target. With Speedy Hacker you can hack Turrets and Vending Machine faster and hopefully gain extra kills. I use Houdini to escape enemies shooting me and kill them from behind.
If Big Daddy is on enemies' side, choose the loadout with the tonic Big Game Hunter and a secondary weapon than can hurt Big Daddy hard and fast like: Tommy Gun w/ Fire Rate Increase, or Grenade Launcher w/ Homing, or Nail Gun. But you must have Crossbow or Elephant Gun, Electro Bolt, Eve Saver, and Head Hunter, in your loadout so that you could kill other players easily that might pop out in front of you.

Well hopefully this tips help you increase your K/D (Kill/Death) Rate, if not maybe slightly. Have fun killing each other : P

I use Elephant Gun/Electro Bolt combo. I play on PC and if you don't use that combo, you die. As a secondary I use shotgun (rate of fire) and telekinesis. For tonics I use Headhunter, Resurrection and Leg Up. This is the loadout I use lvl 40 upwards. Until I get the ele gun I just use the tube. Both are ridiculously overpowered.

The problem for me is leveling up enough to unlock the elephant gun / damage upgrades.

It seems like when you first start playing the game you have shit guns, and you just get owned by the level 50s abusing electrobolts + headshots.

But when I finally unlock them, oh boy are the tables gonna turn.

Grenade launcher + Incinerate = massive destruction if a bit lucky / aimless shooting and constant deaths. Works for a player who isn't so skilful.
Hello - what? They're busy? Busy? Look, they're busy and you're dizzy. No, I am not drunk, madam, but you've given me an idea.

I haven't played the game for quite some time but I had three quite versatile loadouts for different situations/gametypes.

My favourite of these though was:

Primary Weapon: Elephant Gun
Damage Increase
Secondary Weapon: Shotgun
Rate of Fire

Plasmid 1: Electro Bolt
Plasmid 2: Telekinesis

Gene Tonics:
Death Trap
Speedy Recovery
EVE Saver

Higher Rate of Fire

Plasmid 1: Electro Bolt
Plasmid 2: Geyser Trap

Gene Tonics:
Expert Researcher
Speedy Recovery

The crossbow with the damage upgrade and Headhunter perk makes a headshot an instant kill. Shocking them with the Electro Bolt in advance provides an easy, stationary target.
