What weapon do you use to kill Phantoms?

The Acolyte used to work extremely well for killing them, now it’s only really good at stripping their barrier. A character with decent melee or a Vanguard can still make quick work of them at that point, though.

Scorpion, Falcon, Stryker, Krysae– stuns, okay damage
Reeger – eats Barriers and health
GPS – stuns, good damage even if they dodge 2/3 orbs
strong Snipers – headshot from afar

Other shotguns like the Claymore, Piranha, Raider, or Wraith are wildly inconsistent in my experience, sometimes killing very easily and other times taking several reloads.

As for powers, Concussive Shot is perfect, anything that stuns/staggers is helpful, and grenades work very well if you can hit her while she’s staggered. Tech Armor and Barrier are surprisingly effective, but usually not something you want to turn off.
Oh the movie never ends...

Peace has cost you your strength. Victory has defeated you.

Best anti Phantom weapons are the scorpion and the acolyte. But those arent the top scoring weapons. If your primary damage source is a power, than you'd better bring the acolyte just for phantoms and hunters. If you primary damage source is a gun, then its nice to have a power to spam, especially one that actually kills the phantom, like singularity.

Melee works best, followed by any power that isn't a projectile. Guns don't work so well since if you shoot them they'll just dodge and gain ridiculous DR.

Reegar w/Inc. ammo

Melts her shields, and if she lives, the burn wounds will kill her

Either that or Charge + Talon Shots

A good headshot/high damage single shot on a Phantom in Stasis is probably the best since they won't get to put up defenses or dodge.
