Which of these weapons do you find is best for killing Bosses?

Rocket Launcher

55

Light Machine Gun

139

Sniper Rifle

88

I could never quite figure which was more efficient in terms of killing boss's quicker, ammo efficiency vs DPS and if certain enemy types were damaged by one, more than the other, for example a boss having explosive resistance or something. I want know what other people thought was best or should be best. Note: Obviously when tested with base DPS all the same. Edit: Didn't want to involve other weapons just to keep this simple.

  • I use both a Sniper Rifle and a Light Machine gun against bosses. Sniper Rifles have amazing crit damage and LMG do good damage, can crit, and have good reserve ammo.

    • Using the Walker and Sepiks from Devil's Lair as an example, for Heavy Weapons the Machine Gun is the obvious choice. Rate of fire wins the day here, presuming you have the ammo. Primary/secondary weapons you would have to go Scout Rifle. Numerous people were able to solo the Walker in the Lair by finding a spot to avoid the cannons and pick at it's legs. This usually required a fair amount of range, making the SR the clear choice, again with it's rate of fire winning out over the Sniper.

      • Snipers have the highest crit modifier and more abundant ammo, both of the other weapons wouldn run out before you could kill a boss.

          "Boss'" you dont add a third "s" after the apostrophe. And the light machine gun in my experience has worked the quickest on any boss in the beta.

          • Seems you are mixing heavy and special weapons. I always sniper a boss if I can't get close or machine gun if I can.

            • Already got a variable choice going. It is subjective to the boss I know but more info now means more info later for the full release.

            • I would say sniper, seemed the easiest to score precise hits with and did a good amount of damage! ...... Then again it was only the beta and we only had a couple bosses!

              • How very vague of you. There will be many different [b]bosses[/b] in the game. Each of them will have their own little quirks and weaknesses. There are many different rocket launchers...machine guns...sniper rifles. Each of them will have different damage outputs and elemental damage. Your question is a little bit pointless considering there's so much we haven't seen.
