WZ Weapon Choices - What's Yours?

I’m curious what everyone uses at each REQ level? What loadout? What REQ weapon? Or do you usually select a vehicle instead? In other words, assuming you have everything at your disposal, what is your typical pattern for REQ progression and why?

I know this has been done before, but i haven’t seen one in a few updates. Now that there’s more stuff, has it changed for you?

Personally my typical progression is as follows:
Lvl 1) nothing
2) loadout is Extended Magnum and extended AR. REQs are either a carbine or speed boost.
3) longshot br and extended AR. REQs are either a random lvl3 weapon, an ONI hog, or preferably a wasp if i have one.
4) H2BR and SMG. REQ is a whiplash or ghost ultra.
5) H2BR and kinetic SMG. Upgraded shields. REQ arc light or vespin rockethog.
6) dmr and kinetic SMG. Upgraded shields or wheelman. REQ answer, sniper, or prophets bane.
7) extended dmr and kinetic smg. All REQs going forward are completely dependant on the situation.

The following is what I typically use for Warzone and Warzone Assault, by REQ level:
1- Longshot AR + Magnum
2- Kinetic Bolt Longshot AR + Extended Magazine Magnum
3- Kinetic Bolt Longshot AR + Sentinel BR
4- H2 BR + Recon SMG
5- H2 BR + Kinetic Bolt Recon SMG
6- Same as 5
7- Same as 5
8- H2 BR + Energy Bayonet Recon SMG

Next list is for Warzone Firefight:
1- Longshot AR + Magnum
2- Magnum + Extended Magazine Magnum
3- Sentinel BR + Longshot BR
4 through 9 - H2 BR + Tactical Magnum or Kinetic Bolt Sentinel BR

  • AR,Magnum - AR,Magnum both extended - Same as above - SMG,Halo2BR - SMG extended,Halo2BR,Plasmagrenade - Same as above - Same as five - Energybayonett on SMG and DMR
  • Ar magnum - Magnum, extended mags magnum - hybrid br, extended mags magnum - same as 3 - same as 3 with addition of upgraded thrusters - same as 5 - if on noctus I use silenced sentinel dmr - Same as 5 - same as 5I don’t use automatics or bayonets ever.

In Firefight the only thing that changes is that I use patrol case.

I use magnum and extended mags magnum when I am warming up in warzone assault.

  • AR,Magnum - AR,Magnum - Hybrid BR,Gunfighter Magnum - H2 BR, Gunfighter Magnum Reqs Blood of Suban, Ghost Ultra - H2 BR, Gunfighter Magnum Reqs Ad Victoriam Armor Mod Speed Boost(armor mod will be same for rest of the req levels) - H2 BR, DMR Reqs Sniper Rifle Jorges Chaingun - H2 BR, Kinetic DMR Ultra Banshee Armor Mod Wheelman(only time it changes) - H2 BR, Knight Blade DMR Reqs Sniper - H2 BR, Knight Blade DMR Reqs Sniper

Longshot AR & Magnum.
I’ll add kinetic bolts to the AR when they become avail. And I usually replace Magnum with a Longshot BR or a DMR.

REQ weapons I prefer are Binary, Answer, High Five, and CE Pistol.

Lvl 1) nothing
2) loadout is Extended Magnum and regular AR. REQS are none
3) Hybrid/Longshot BR and regular AR. REQs are either a random lvl3 weapon, or any lvl3 REQ that I see fit.
4) H2BR and Recon SMG. REQ is any weapon that I see fit.
5) H2BR and Recon SMG. Upgraded Thrusters or Wheelman. REQ is anything that I see fit both Weapon/Vehicle.
6) H2BR and Recon DMR. Upgraded Thrusters or Wheelman. REQ Snipers or anything that I see fit.
7) H2Br and Recon DMR. All REQs going forward are completely dependant on the situation.
8) H2BR and Recon DMR with Energy Bayonet. All REQs going forward are completely dependant on the situation.

  1. Nothing.
  2. Magnum Extended Mag and Regular Assault rifle. No REQs.
  3. Any BR and Gunfighter magnum. Common Random weapon REQ or Uncommon Random Vehicle REQ.
  4. H2BR and Any SMG. Uncommon Random Weapon REQ.
  5. H2BR and Any SMG. Rare Random Weapon REQ or Rare Random Vehicle REQ.
  6. Recon DMR and H2BR. The Answer or Any Sniper/Beam/Binary Rifle.
  7. Silenced Recon DMR and H2BR. Ultra Banshee REQ or nothing.
  8. Silenced Recon DMR and Any weapon with energy bayonet. Same as above.
  9. Same as above. Same as above.

AT 3 BR
AT 4 H2 BR

That’s all for Load outs, others is dependent on situation but is usually a precision weapon

I don’t use reqs that often. I prefer to outplay people and take their weapons.

Load outs: I go from AR/Mag to AR/Mag extended mag on both to BR/AR extended mag, DMR/extended mag BR to DMR/BR extended mag.
But I do call in a lot of vehicles in firefight as well most of the time. when I do call in weapons it’s usually plasma casters, rocket launchers or lasers. I have been trying to use more weapons. the answer kicks yoink in warzone. dying star seems to do well against nights.
Armor mods I am usually using advanced shields, patrol pack or wheel man.

I mean, I use them, I just don’t really have a typical pattern of use.

Sentinel BR at level 3. SMG at level 4. Extended mag SMG and Upgraded Shields at level 5. Aaaaaand spam vehicles at level 6 and up in FF.

I hardly ever play regular WZ now that FF is here, and I’m sitting on a big pile of small arms power weapon cards I should probably just sell if I’m never gonna use.

When I did play more regular WZ, I used lots of Needler’s to compensate for my sucky aiming. Especially when playing base defense.

Lvl 1) nothing
2) loadout is Extended Magnum a AR. Sometimes Carbine depending on map/role
3) longshot br and classic BR. REQs are usually a random lvl 3 weapon
4) H2BR and Hybrid SMG. or Longshot BR w/ Kinetic Bolts
5) H2BR and Longshot BR w/ Kinetic Bolts
6) H2BR and Longshot BR w/ Kinetic Bolts
7) H2BR and Longshot BR w/ Kinetic Bolts

I just go to sniper as soon as I hit six. However if the other team has a bunch of banshees or mantis I usually call in a spartan laser.

I’m sensing a pattern, that no one uses the lvl1 REQs, only consider one or two of the lvl2s, and almost nothing from lvl3 REQ weapons. Crazy.
