lol, that was one of my pet peeves about gow online, that kinda turned me off of it. the shotgun circles, and not respawning.

You are all wrong. The #1 weapon in Gears is the shotgun. With all the shotgun circle dueling you guys should know that.

Not to be dissing "Gears," but the Torque Bow and Hammer of Dawn were the only weapons in the game that I would call unique. None of the weapons sucked, though. Even the Snub was good if you knew how to use it.

The lancer is number 1 because its was a huge selling point for Gears 1. A rifle with a chainsaw bayonet was an awesome idea.
I think the Torque Bow is the best weapon in the game. You can hit someone anywhere with it and their done. You have to hit someone in the head with the sniper to kill them, and in another 2 weeks no more active downs with the sniper.

how the lancer beat out the boomshot for #1 is beyond me...especially pre boom nerf patch...i mean that thing is sick...a lancer PLEASE
Longshot by far is the best weapon in the game hands down.

the only real beef i had with gow was the variety of weapons. i really hope they expanded the weapon selection for gow2. i own both systems and one thing i loved about resistance was the amount of weapons selection. gow2 will be amazing nonetheless but i really hope they have like 10-14 different weapons.

Torqued in the nuts. That can't be pleasant.
