  3. Is Alloy Cannon the most powerful gun?

I'm wondering whether to equip my heavy with Alloy Cannon or Heavy Plasma. Which is the most bang for your buck?

Alloy Cannon is a shotgun.

Alloy cannons pretty much turn your assaults into the harbingers of death.

Pretty much all the specialized tier 3 weapons do that for their class. Which unfortunately leaves the support stuck with its puny 7/10 rifle. Good thing smokes and medkits are so useful.

And being able to shoot twice when that Heavy Floater appears out of nowhere.

The alloy cannon and the plasma sniper rifle are the most useful weapons in the game.

Makes me remember when i did my first alloy gun shot at a sectopod at point blank... and boom! 17 damage was pretty nice, actually.

It's the best shotgun, and to me, the best close-ranged weapon in the game. Also, Ghost + Run and Gun + Rapid Fire at point blank range does wonders against Sectopods, especially if it's been softened up with a HEAT shredder rocket.
