Most powerful GUN in the game?

I haven't played the game for a few months and it seems I've been bombarded with new assault rifles. I'm curious, what AR is the most powerful at this moment in time? I've just been using the free AR that came with DLC, although I feel like a newer weapon might be better. Thoughts?

Best AR is Advanced rifle.

Advanced Rifle:

<Damage value="34.000000" /><TimeBetweenShots value="0.120000" />

Assault Rifle:

<Damage value="30.000000" /><TimeBetweenShots value="0.158000" />

Carbine Rifle:

<Damage value="32.000000" /><TimeBetweenShots value="0.135000" />

Bullpup Rifle:

<Damage value="32.000000" /><TimeBetweenShots value="0.120000" />

Special Carbine:

<Damage value="32.000000" /><TimeBetweenShots value="0.135000" />

Bullpup Rifle is similar to Advanced Rifle but less damage.

I think the RPG is the best.

appeared since GTA 1 alongside basic pistol , although the model is varied from games to games ( can be LAW or RPG , but RPG is most common )

if the advanced rifle does 34 damage then how much health does a lvl 100 and lvl 1 player have?

always wanted to know this

also does strength affect health or damage taken?

Do you have an accuracy stat to add to this?

The Heavy Shotgun is the strongest free aim gun you can use. But I agree the Advanced Rifle is strong.

There are no true Assault Rifles in this game as none have select fire capabilities.

 

Personally, I use the basic Carbine Rifle, the one that kind of looks like an M4. It's served me well for since launch.

 

Also the "MG's" in this game are not machine guns. They are Light Machine Guns (LMG).

AP Pistol is the most powerful gun if you intend to shoot Fully-Automatic, as it has the highest Damage-Per-Second of any guns due to Rate of Fire.

Otherwise use the Combat MG (32 damage).

The TimeBetweenShots values are wrong and don't match with my tests. The Special Carbine shoots a little bit faster than the other three. The Assault rifle is the slowest.

I empty a whole clip with 60 rounds in 7 seconds with the Special Carbine and in 7.4 seconds with Bullpup, Carbine and Advanced rifle.

 

I'm on PS3.

Max health for players is 328.

Default health is 238 (I assume this is the health for lvl 1)

34 * 7 = 238

34 * 10 = 340

Default armor is 50

If lvl 1 have maximised armor and health then:

Health: 288

34 * 9 = 306 (9 shots should kill him)

If lvl 120 have maximised armor and health then:

Health: 378

34 * 12 = 408 (12 shots should kill him)

Actually I'm not testing. This is from the game files.

Weapons.meta PC

DLC Weapons

Check the special carbine file.

We still don't know alot about weapons data.

You should check again, even the speed HUD stat says advanced rifle is faster than special carbine.

Advanced Rifle HUD(Stats shown in-game):

<HudSpeed value="70" />

Special Carbine HUD:

<HudSpeed value="65" />

We know that HUD stats aren't very accurate, but If game files + stats shown in-game says advanced rifle is faster then you should check your tests again.

well , how about full defense ( maxed HP , maxed strength , heavy utility vest and brucie's steroids )

even without the steroids , i'd still survive from proximity mines ( albeit low HP and laying on ground means completely open from attack ) , several point blank shotgun from Lost MC in pacific bikes & intentional grenade suicide ( requiring 2 grenades )

 

but in car , obviously can't survive

I have it before I posted it.

Half press R2, then shoot and stop the time till the clip is empty.

I tested it on an AFK player, took 6 to kill. All to the torso.

I have used the bullpup for a year and I am used to it and it never let's me down.

Other than explosive guns like the rpg, homing launcher and grenade launcher. The most powerful gun in the game as of now is the Minigun(if used correctly) hands down, it can kill anyone in 1-2 seconds with good accuracy. Almost at the lspd tint.

 

Top 3:

 

1- Minigun

 

2- Assault Shotgun

 

3- Combat MG /AP/Bullpup

Okay seriously, you should just make a thread with all of your GIFs because they are always hilarious.

 

OT: Though the Advanced Rifle has more damage, it really all comes down to how good you are with aiming at head shots. In my opinion, (and from playing loads of Deathmatches and using tips given to me by members here) I have noticed that accuracy on a gun sometimes means it is more deadly. Don't get me wrong I love and use the Advanced Rifle, but I tend to use it when an enemy is close-to-medium range. Anything farther, I think the Special Carbine is better, only because it is more accurate and there is less spread. But honestly, I don't know, could be placebo or I could just be talking out of my a**. I think it all comes down to what gun you prefer and what gun you have the best time or "luck" (if you will) with it.

 

If you own with it, it works.

How exactly does shotgun damage work? Like the assault shotgun says it deals 32 damage...does that mean each pellet deals 32 damage? If so, how many pellets are there? Or, simply anyone within the pellet spread will receive a total of 32 damage? It seems like there must be some sort of multiplier because at close range this thing kills a lot faster than an assault rifle, even without headshots.

RPG

 

/Thread

"A rocket-propelled grenade (often abbreviated RPG) is a shoulder-fired, anti-tank weapon system that fires rockets equipped with an explosive warhead. These warheads are affixed to a rocket motor and stabilized in flight with fins. Some types of RPG are reloadable, while others are single-use. RPGs, with the exception of self-contained versions, are loaded from the muzzle.[1]"

 

Technically an explosive weapon. But thanks for reading the first post which askes which rifle is the most powerful. True; the thread title could've been worded better but an infant with an IQ in the minus range would've read the first post to get the faintest idea what the hell OP asked.
