So I'm having to restart the game afte getting all of the bobbleheads except the Cabot house one due to that stupidly frustrating glitch with emogene and since I am restarting I need some weapons looking through wikipedia I got some ideas but what are the best guns to use for damage for basic find and buys or killing someone.

And then separately what are the best legendary guns to.try to.get?

I'm wanting something in comparison to the overseers guardian not that it needs the exact perk but that it can fire a lot of shots be OK with vats or do a lot of damage I know the named Gauss rifle I got from the minutemen was really good

Any help would be appreciated

Explosive + automatic is OP like the spray n pray.

I like righteous authority too because VATs overall is OP.

A plasma rifle with the sniper barrel attachment is a lot of fun. Just make sure to use a reflex sight instead of a scope for less AP cost in vats because VATs is OP.

I found an explosive minigun, which I then modded with the rapid accelerating barrel. And lol, that thing outright destroys anything that gets in your way. It eats up a lot of ammo, but it's worth the carnage it produces.

Shotguns also take well to Explosive. Anything that puts out a lot of dakka. Two shot also works well for such weapons.

Single shot weapons benefit more from things like +25% damage.

-Overseer's Guardian
-Spray n' Pray
-Kellogg's Pistol
-Deliverer
-Pickman's Blade
-The Last Minute (only because it's a guaranteed any level Gauss)
-Righteous Authority is great for a VATS based Luck heavy build (like a pistol/gunslinger build).
-any regular plasma gun with a flamer barrel. Slap on a stock/grip according to your perk of choice.
-bolt action pipe pistols behave similarly to the .44 magnum at lower levels
-double barrel shotguns can get quite powerful early as advanced receivers are easy to get for them

Absolutely broken:
-Explosive Combat Shotgun
-Explosive Minigun w/ accel barrels
-Wounding Laser Gatling Gun

Kinda broken
-Wounding Combat Shotgun
-Wounding Minigun
-Final Judgement (Rapid Gatling Laser)

More fair:
-Wounding (automatic gun)
-Two Shot Assault Rifle
-Two Shot Plasma Flamer
-Instigating or Two Shot Gauss (depends on the difficulty and your investment in Ninja/Mr. Sandman)
-Instigating, or Penetrating Laser Muskets. Also Defiant, I think (dunno if that one works)
-Kneecapper on automatic and lightweight weapon (such as 10mm or pipe pistol)
-Neverending Double Barrel Shotgun
-Staggering Assault Rifle (for Commando builds)
-Explosive (insert automatic gun here) for Demolition Expert/Commando builds
-Lucky .44 Magnum or Lucky Plasma Pistol on a Gunslinger build
-Freezing weapons on crit builds or when using overdrive+an automatic gun
-Furious Ripper
-Berserker (melee weapon) with only clothes on (no DR, must wear something though)
-Irradiated automatic weapons can also be good, but against humans only.

It's worth noting to be careful with Explosive weapons, particularly close range ones like the shotgun, particularly when fighting melee enemies. You can injure yourself or allies.
