After all the story missions I have wondered if I have missed something useful things for weapons so I'm willing to ask about this! What weapons are the most useless in your opinion? And I'm not asking about upgrades! I'm asking about weapons types biggrin.gif

For example, pistols and shotguns are in my opinion the most useless weapons because...

A. I can use assault rifle instead of pistols. Assault rifles has way better range and the shooting power is the same as pistols'
B. I can use SMGs instead of shotguns. SMG also kills fast if the opponent is near and it also deals good damage at medium range and it has faster rate!

I didn't use much these both weapons (pistols & shotguns) on the story missions when I got better weapons. I have to say that assault rifles were the most useful for me smile.gif But if I have vote only one, I would vote shotguns cause I used pistols at the beginning very much and if I ran out of assault rifle's ammo, pistol was a decent replacement. smile.gif

I don't really know. I'd say shotguns, yes.

Every weapon has its proper situation to be used, so it depends of what you're doing.

I always found the Bat and Knife useless weapons, especially considering that simply shooting them wouldn't take as long as stabbing them or bludgeoning them would.

It depends actually on what type of weapon you use in certain situations. Some weapons like the knife can be use to stealthily kill opponents, grenades use to kill a large group of opponents at a distance, etc.

This. No weapon is "useless".

But how can pistols be better than assault rifle if the ammo is not included

There's no 'useless' weapon, but there are some I hardly ever used, like the Molotov Cocktail.

I didn't think any of them were useless. Maybe some of the things you can pick up and throw, but none of the firearms/melee weapons IMO.

For me the knife (pathetically tiny) the molotov and shotgun were useless. All the weapons I used towards the finale were the assault rifle, smg, grenades and combat sniper rifle. Actually I love the combat sniper rifle cause you can use it to pick off Dimitri's men from a distance when doing 'Revenge' mission

For me it was the shotgun. I never used it during the storyline, and I have only just begun using it. I find it VERY useful for dealing with cardrivers.

In second place comes the grenades

All weapons have a purpose for me. Bat and knife are useful when I don't want to alert by passers.

Shotgun spread is too tight, makes them useless for Close quarters.

How is this useless though? I've always gotten one shot kills... I'm sorry but your statement doesn't really make sense.

The bat and knife were the most useless weapon in my opinion but all weapons did server a purpose. I just found it easier to pick somebody off using a gun before they got into melee range.

As I said, no weapon is useless, but if I had to choose which weapon I use the least, that's gotta be the molotov cocktail.

are you kidding me? I LOVE the shotties. Nothing like moving thru corridors - walking, taking cover then popping out and BAM! blasting teh faces off purps, one by one.

The weapon I used least was the baseball bat, and the knife is only necessary when I need to make a stealth kill.

None are really useless but I rarely use a bat or knife to be honest

I agree with what you said about the shotgun it's awesome to use in Blow your Cover to clear out the NOOSE dudes in the apartment. But how do you stealth kill in IV? I thought that was only SA specific.

Stealth only in the sense of killing someone without alerting others eg. taking out the manager in the accounting office in the mission 'undress to kill' or the lawyer dude in that one you do for frankie mcreary.

I have never found any need for the knife, the baseball bat is better because you can smash things with it.

Knife. I only used it in SA with the stealth ability, never dabbled with it in IV.

Everyone should just look at their combat statistics. I dare to say that the melee weapons are used the less since melee fights hardly happen if you don't provoke them. The most useful and rounded weapon has to be the smg. It has a high rate of fire, reloads fast, is accurate and has a decent range. Also you can shoot it from all vehicles apart from the helicopter (if you're the pilot that is).
