best weapon for garrus

#1SarakPosted 3/18/2012 8:53:25 AM

I like to use Garrus a lot but I don't know what kind of weapon for him to use.

In ME2, the incisor weapon was the best for him. He was a total beast with that thing.

Now in ME3, it seems to me the incisor isn't as good for him.

Am I imagining this? Does someone have any suggestions for a good weapon for Garrus to use in ME3? Should I try the raptor? Or Javik's particle beam?

Any help would be nice.

I have Garrus with either a Widow, Javelin, or Black Widow I give him the Sniper Rifle Damage upgrade at Rank 6 (the power one at level 5 resulting in weaker assault rifles in exchange for a higher damage Overload)

Those 3 Weapons combine fantastically with Cryo Ammo, they also happen to deal excellent damage.

Someone else would have to help you with Assault Rifles as I don't really pay attention to those with Garrus.

I give him, Ashley, Javik, James the particle beam. I always use it too much and wind up burning it out and having that long cooldown because I'm wanting to just get that last bit of high intensity beam to fry off my opponent towards the end of the clip, and always wind up with it empty. AI characters, however, absolutely fry stuff with that thing.

I was wondering the same thing...I figured I'd give him the Black Widow so that way even if he misses the first round, he'll be able to get another shot off without having to reload after every single shot. good are squad mates when it comes to sniping in ME3? In ME1, people swore by a Sniper Garrus *mine was always AR* so I never saw if sniper garrus was epic.
