Large bore ACs. I love a good autocannon 20 in any flavor.

Shouldn't it be "Energy" instead of "Lasers"? PPC's aren't exactly Lasers.

PPC's don't act like the rest of Lasers, they act like Ballistics.

But earlier Garth said that our opinions don't really matter and he's just curious, and I'm just not willing to make myself vunerable to satisfy his Johnny 5 like need for Data.

I love missiles, but Gauss Rifles have always been one of my luckier weapons.

My offical Choice is Missiles however. :wub:

While I tend to mount mixed weapon types on a 'Mech, I generally find lasers to be the most fun to fire.
Missiles are the most fun to actually hit something with, though.
I'm not really sure...

That's tough... I love the PPC and Gauss, but also a nice AC-10 and SRMs. So...

long range: Gauss
medium range and low long range: PPC and AC-10
short range: SRM (yes, I like standard SRM, the ones without target lock)

If I had to pick one type... it would be ballistics I guess.

Hey I never said they don't matter, i said the polls don't matter in terms of choosing stuff for the game. We deeply value your answers and like seeing what people like/dislike.

I use the general opinions people give me on Facebook, Twitter, the Forums, etc, as what to give suggestions about. These are merely curiosities on what people like or don't like.

Tough choice. Depends on what I am doing.
For an assault I like a little ratta-tat-tat, something about watching those high bore shell casings dancing across the ground. Plus auto cannons tend to be very forgiving with low heat and a quick recycle time.

For scouting I think missiles will be a good choice. get a lock fire off a few salvos and beat feet out of there while your target is lost behind a haze of exhaust contrails.
