Question Best gun in Far Cry ??

Most of the guns i have used so far seem to be good. Both shoguns are deadly at close range. Has anybody used one that is just a beast yet?? Seems to me the assualt class seems to have the better guns. Just havent run across one that is a game changer.

There are a few better weapons in the different classes as for the assault class i like the F1 but if you want real firepower that last one i,m not sure its something called M1 its got great range and damage but its semi-automatic so its not that fast in follow up shots like the rest. As for the SMG,s i thing the vector and the MP5 both are great. For the LMG class i think the U100 is def your best choice. On a sidenote there are signature weapons that you can buy from the store that seem to unlock while playing thru the story, so far i seen a Magnum 44 cannon and a M133 shotgun with some extras all these have a few extra attachments and a paintjob and seem to do more damage. But be aware they def not cheap. But these seem to be the "Killer" weapons in the game as far i can tell.

This sounds like an MP question, but I would like to know what the best guns are in SP.

So far I am using:
  • F1 + Reflex
  • MP5 + Reflex + Silencer
  • Recurve Bow + Marksman Sight
  • Cannon
I'm still on the first island and I assume you get more weapons in the south island? I recall seeing a M4 and a Deagle in a tutorial video thingy.

If there was a bathtub in the game, my gun would be #uno.

Since there is not, I enjoy playing with the silenced scorpion and silenced sniper rifles. Hell, I like all the guns!

Yeah, I carried this gun for a really really long time. It's unbelievable deadly at close and mid range, and over the top it's also silenced, which makes it the perfect weapon for sneaking into outposts. Besides the silenced signature Sniper, I used that gun till the very end, where you get the Bushman rifle, which is slightly better.

havent unlocked the vector yet, but the mp5 has to be up there, such a good well rounded gun. Also the AMR is too good, love the description ''fires rounds the could take down a t-rex'' that just says it all

I was wanting to know the best gun in sp. I just got the vector last night. PURE beast. Must have for any mission.

AMR sniper rifle is probably the best. It's the only weapon, besides an RPG, that I have gotten 3 kills with one shot. The piercing on it is rediculous, add explosive rounds to this and you have quite possibly an over-powered weapon.

I don't recommend using just 1 gun. especially during the "point of no return mission", you'll have to go crazy, possibly run & gun strategy cause you have a time limit.

this i what i did
  • Ripper/Shredder/any assault rifle
  • amr/z93 - until that last mission
  • grenade launcher
  • whatever you want

I roam around with:

Sniper: M-700 with sound suppressor and high power scope
LMG: U 100 with extended magazine
Bow with red dot sight
Pistol: Shadow (suppressor)

I like to sneak around most of the time, and only use the LMG when things go wrong

I enjoy the MP5 and Recurve bow right now. The original shotgun is a must for hunting.

However I am only 2 hours and three main story missions into the game, I'm sure I'll change my mind when I get further into the game

I like the sniper rifle that you unlock once unlocking the second island. The AMR is great, but doesn't have a silencer so is pretty much pointless when trying to liberate bases stealthily. I also like the Bushman for stealth and Ripper for taking out big guys.

I think my favorite two weapons are the signature sniper and the signature assault rifle. By the time I had liberated a few bases, I got bored of stealth and just opted to shoot everyone

Yeah, I loved this gun - it's the best early signature weapon.

I think I ended up keeping this through the rest of the game.

My typical load-out was

1. Custom Vector
2. RPG
3. Early semi-auto AR (nice mix between a sniper and AR) and later the Bushman
4. Flare Gun - too much fun not to carry around.
