My least would have to be the Ion Spreader (no room to fire it ;D)and the Flamethrower (although I did use it for backup-ammo hallway clearings and for close quarters when i couldnt use the laser gun at close range. Mainly though for when i didnt have the ammo to spend using the laser gun). Actually, now that i think about it, i had to of only used the Machine Gun 1nc or twice when i didnt feel like using up my XM8 ammo.

My most would be the XM8 and Shotgun.

My least used weapon was the pistol (a shame really) and my most used weapon must have been the Minigun or XM8.

My most is minigun and rocket launcher and I use the least the pistol and fusion cannon (because it uses up lots of ammo and it shoots in all directions and it's ammo is really blastive.)

Yeah, the only times i used pistol were at the beginning, and when the game bugged and accidently changed to the pistol ;)

I didnt like the minigun, it was to inaccurate for me, so i just used the XM8. I never saw the 50cal mingun once in the game though, but all this ammo for it.

Yeah, forgot to mind the XM8 too, I use the Minigun only for large targets (like tanks or helicopters, it's effective with them).

Most:
Rocket Launcher (to take care of horrid, irritating turrets :o) )
50 cal minigun (ahnilates just about anything)
Sniper Rifle, and my two alternates (Covert and Tactical)

Least:
Spreader cannon (No room to use it)
Grenade Launcher (always manages to come back and hit me :p)
Pistol (WEAK as hell)

I also made my own gun, the Infanry Killer Gun, or IFG, that has just the same sprites as the TSX Roundrifle(Civilwar feature too!) and it uses it's own bullets and takes 25 per shot. Perfect for killing standard troops.

<b>EDIT: Eh, mike, what are your sniper alternates?</b>

My (beloved) sniper alternates (which have dif wavs and sprs but same specs as normal SR):
Tactical Sniper Rifle (Its got a slight army peach-ish tint to it)
Covert Sniper Rifle (Silenced, rifle is black with a silencer)

When I played the SP campaign myself I found the weapons differed a lot with different types or targets (just as I planned of course).

I never ever used the pistol and I only used the flamethrower when there was plently of flame ammo around (like the Orion base). The minigun was not used much due to its wide spray.

The XM8 took preference over the machine gun because its more accurate although I used the regular MG a few times because of its cool sound.

I was able to use the fusion cannon a few times but I had to be real careful lol. Often I was a victim too.

The others got a good work out, especially the rocket/grenade launchers and the shotgun which is awesome.

TIP: I found using one rocket and the one grenade was an efficient way of taking out the turrets.

<b>Edit</b>
Someone should try increasing the sniper rifle projectile count to take out whole lines of enemy troopers (you may want to drop the projectile damage too else it will be too good against tanks).

Both Mantis and me came up with this idea but I never got around to experimenting with it.

What I did for turrets was use 1 rocket and 2-3 laser gun pulse's, as there is pulse gun ammo EVERYWHERE so it doesnt burn thru all the ammo ;)

I tried to Use <u>all</u> the weapons in most situations. I never found a situation (yet) that i needed to use the fusion cannon to protect my life.

I switched back and forth between the XM8 and Machinegun, Mainly so i could reload the XM8 and fire with the Machinegun at the same time lol.

I used Minigun on flame, laser, minigun, and rocket turrets when they have theyre backs turned, I go right up behind them, and pound them with every one of my Minigun shells.

The shotgun makes a good All-around killer, though waiting 1 full second between each fire makes it hard to kill fast units.

I used the Pistol as a Sidearm, for saving ammo, making sure that every bullet on those infantry counts

The flame thrower i used on turrets, and I used pulse cannon, grenade launcher, and rocket launcher on large vehicles.

Least:
