The Best Loadout Weapons
Loadout is a fun, free game - If you don't have it, you can download it at http://www.loadout.com/. "It's If Quake and Team Fortress 2 had a baby, and then kicked it in the head" according to popular YouTuber BirgirPall. It's non stop action and warfare, however of course there's an element of customization.
The weapons in Loadout are completely customisable - If you want a high powered sniper rifle that sets fire to it's targets, then sure, it's available. If you'd prefer a spiked ball launcher that shoots 100 rounds minute, then of course that's available too. There are too many weapon combinations to count, in fact. However, in my opinion, a bad weapon can make for a terrible Loadout experience. So I've created this page (And a blog!) to showcase some of the best weapon designs that I've found.
Mongler - Laser Guided, Gatling Powered Bouncy Balls of Death.
Scope: Laser Guided
Magazine: High Capacity
Payload: Slug (Or Tesla if you prefer), with bounce
This gun is a medium, close and long range all rounder. Up close it'll destroy you with it's spread fire and high capacity magazine, while at long range those balls will always manage to tear you apart. You may recognize this weapon, or a weapon similar to this in the trailer. However, there have been some changes and additions to this weapon that aren't present. Firstly, the laser guidance. Laser guidance makes all projectiles home in towards a fixed point designated by your gun. This makes the Mongler incredibly accurate at both medium and long range, as the guidance effectively eliminates the large spread present when attaching a Spooling trigger and a Gatling head. Alternatively, for close up battles, ditch the scope and shoot. The bouncing balls will tear your enemies to shreds.
Snipoar - Boom, headshot.
Scope: Optical Zoom (Or Recon)
Magazine: Bolt Action (Or Shell Loading, but you'll lose the one hit kill.)
This baby is a one shot kill headshot creator. One body shot will take away half your opponents health, while a headshot will knock off your opponents head like a golf ball off it's tee. The Bolt Action magazine is the real killer here, dealing out 30 points of extra damage over the Shell Loading magazine. A sniper barrel is of course necessary, a headshot barrel can improve this weapon however as it's already one shot, one kill, there is little need.
Rocket Lawn Chair - Sticky Tesla Treat that handles groups nicely
Scope: Laser Guidance
Payload: Tesla, Agile, Sticky, Impact (Can use timed), Cluster
Ever see a group of enemies clustered, capturing a point? Ever watch your rockets miss a hammer carrier as he sprints into the distance? Well, this weapon will solve those problems. Shoot a rocket at an enemy player, and watch as it attaches to him, electrocutes him briefly, then showers him and his teammates in a blaze of lightning powered glory. With the sticky upgrade you can make sure that this weapon carries on doing more damage after the projectile has been fired.
Corkscrew Horror - Clouds of Spinning Steel Balls
Scope: Bio Scanner (Or Ironsights)
Barrel: Scatter (Or Narrow Scatter, if you have it)
Magazine: Shell Loading
Payload: Slug, Corkscrew
As the name suggests, this gun fires corkscrewing shells. The scatter forms essentially a large cloud of death ready to dish out some ass whooping. The corkscrewing enables this gun to hit more in it's wide field of view, however as always this gun should be used as a close range weapon best suited for melee fights.
Medigun - Oktoberfest!
Scope: Bio Scanner (Or Ironsights)
Barrel: Light Assault
Trigger: Full Auto
MEEEEDIIIC! This gun operates like the medigun in TF2, however the bonus is it also heals you as well as your teammate! Use the Bio Scanner to identify teammates in need of aid, and then blast them with this to fill up both of your health bars. This weapon works best when used in combination with a primary weapon, as of couse you cannot do damage with this.
If you've got any suggestions, feel free to write them here! If they're particularly good, I'll add them to my blog!
