Default Hardcore Weapon Setup

Everybody is using only plasma cutter as main weapon, what about using force gun as main and plasma cutter as second? I think that force gun is best in each situation. What do you think? Thanks for responses

The Force Gun is good but you need to fully upgrade it before it becomes truly useful and it's range isn't good. I'd keep it as secondary weapon as it's good but not quite good enough to replace the Plasma Cutter as your primary weapon.

It all depends on your accuracy with the plasma cutter, if you can cut both arms off with two shots it's better. But if your not very accurate the force gun is better

I can aim, but.. 2 precious shots from plasma cutter are less powerful than force gun, and you can shoot with force gun anywhere on zombie, iam just wondering because i saw how friend was killing enemies with fully upgraded PC, then i see guy on youtube with force gun, much difference. So fully upgraded PC with two packs of ammo and fully upgraded force gun with a lot of ammo + 5 medpacks should be good no? Too much people using force gun only and have no problem. But i think that PC is needed..

I also find the force gun is extremely effective against those annoying scorpion things. If you use the PC and the force gun together it's a really good combination for HC

If you're not using a Force Gun from the DLC, it's applicability is reduced simply by how late it comes into play. Plasma Cutter is your cheapest and most reliable weapon from the get-go. If you are however, using a DLC Force gun... then just roll with it

I used Plasma Cutter, Line Gun, Detonator and Contact Beam all the way up until Chapter 13 when I respec'd the Plasma Cutter and put everything into the Javelin Gun. That thing is an absolute beast when fully upgraded, and kills Ubermorphs in one hit from the Alt Fire.

Plasma Cutter is the perfect all-round weapon. Decent damage, decent rate of fire and very good for slowing enemies down. It really starts to lose its effectiveness by Chapter 13 though.

Line Gun I used mainly to sever all three of the tentacles from those wall climbing things at once. Didn't really use it much else.

Detonator is a perfect ambush preparation weapon. I had died so many times in Hardcore that I knew exactly where the enemies would come from, so setting up some traps helped greatly.

Contact Beam is a great life saver, especially the Alt Fire. I escaped many sticky situations thanks to that.

Plasma Cutter and Flamethrower were my weapons of choice, for the end I used the Contact Beam and the Javelin Gun. I always kept the Pulse Rifle, but only for decompression switches and for the final part of the Tormentor sequence with the Gunship in chapter 5.

i use plasma cutter until chapter 9 then i get my contact beam(contact beam for lulz)
detonator too for stalker encounters

i really don't use the force gun too much it sucks against slashers and acid ones
but works good against the stalkers and helps a lot in the drill ride

so i use plasma cutter, detonator, contact beam and sometimes force gun
that loadout save my ass so many times
