Best Guns in Transformers: War for CybertronIn War For Cybertron, Fall Of Cybertron, and Rise Of The Dark Spark, there are many weapons you can either pick up in areas or in Teletran (FOC and ROTDS only). So without further ado, let's go through the best weapons in War For Cybertron. Note: Ion Displacers and Nucleon Shock Cannons don't count as they're mostly rare and these are weapons that are regular.
The Top Ten
Easily the best gun in the game. While there are other strong guns such as Fusion Cannon, Magma Frag Launcher, and Thermo Rocket Launcher, X12 Scrapmaker not only does a ton of damage to enemies like the heavy gunners, tanks, and brutes, but it also has a lot of ammo in it. Although some of the downsides is that it takes a while to fully unleash it's full power and the range, while being pretty decent, is mid range at best, so it's not the best weapon for long range situations. Still a great weapon though, best for Escalation and Multiplayer matches.
Tired of dying because you keep facing enemies head on, well try the undefined ray. This weapon is PERFECT for fighting enemies from a distance. With a very long distance to shoot and very powerful shots, this weapon can help turn the tables in a battle when you're in a corner with nothing else to do. Since this is a weapon that's mostly for far range, it's the worst weapon to use in close range combat, with a low chance that it might hit your enemies. Best advice is use cloak while shooting the gun and aim for their heads to one shot them.
Best gun for both far and close range. With a decent amount of damage, covers a decent mount of distance (meaning you can destroy a group of enemies with this gun), and great range, this gun has everything you can ask for. Being Megatron's gun, it's quite obvious that this gun is so good.
While this gun isn't very well ranged, it still deals quite a bunch of damage. Despite only having 2 clips, this gun is very strong for all 3 game modes. Best gun to use when you're trying to get a headshot cause it can destroy your enemies with only a headshot.
Annoyed by pesky flyers, fear not, this gun can easily take care of your flying annoyances. This gun has a lock on system, which can heat seek any target, though the only problem is that your enemy has to be in vehicle mode to lock on, making it a lot difficult to target enemies like regular soldiers, cloakers, and heavy gunners. Still a great gun regardless.
Like Photon Burst Rifle, this is a great gun to use at both long range and close range battles due to it's distance and damage. While it may not have as much range as the undefined ray, it's still a great gun to use nonetheless.
This gun is definitely a great gun to use at far range combat more than close range. Because of the splash damage this gun does, it's very useful when you're trying to take out a cluster of enemies. The only problem is that you have to charge it for a while for it to work. Other than that, great gun that can turn the tides in a battle whether you're in campaign mode, escalation mode, or multiplayer mode (especially in game modes like conquest or power struggle).
Read the description. NO ION DISPLACER OR NUCLEON SHOCK CANNON
Photon Burst Rifle is a gun that has a scope (while not as big of a range as null ray, but covers a decent amount of distance). This gun fires 3 bullets at a time, hence the name burst rifle. While it may be the weakest of the long range weapons, it's still a decent gun.
A mid range SMG type gun. While this gun doesn't do as much damage as X12 Scrapmaker or Fusion Cannon, this gun still packs a bit of a punch as it has a cool firing sound and feels a bit comfortable to use than the Scrapmaker.
Great starter gun to use. Though not as good as the later guns, this gun can still pack quite a punch in Escalation as you start out.
