Vanguard SP: Best Shotgun? Best Pistol?

#1GalaxilliPosted 3/18/2012 9:14:31 PM
I hear that the Disciple is the best shotgun due to weight and damage. Do you agree?

What about pistols?

My insanity combo is Geth Plasma Shotgun + Paladin. I've had no complaints.

Where'd you get the GPS?

Also, have you tried the Disciple?

I think you should.

I haven't been able to purchase the Paladin, but right now I'm loving the Scorpion.

As for shotguns, it's between the Graal Spike Thrower and the Geth Plasma Shotgun. The GPS is more fun.

If you use a shotgun as a vanguard in this game, you're doing it wrong

Sometimes a man's fist needs to rest from punching things into oblivion, okay?

If you have 200% cooldowns you're doing it right no matter your weapon choice...

I kinda pefer Katana to Disciple, but thats only because I have it max out so its nice and light. Also it reloads faster which is always nice as it makes you less open. The other shotties are too heavy for my taste, though I don't have all of the maxed (but I DO have all of them, much to my chargin)

As far as pistols go, I'm a fan of the Hand Cannon Carnifex.. Has a nice amount of ammo and is quite accurate even without a scope.


EDIT: Ah, talking about SP, not MP.

I'd switch Paladin with Carnifex in that case, for the power. Still roll with the Katana though, I like its reload speed and decent weight. Though I find myself using powers a lot more then my weapon (both my own and my squad's), feeling more like an adept then anything else.
