Like the title says, what are some of your all time favorite weapons in the series? Here are mine:

The Infinite Rocket Launchers from RE1, 2, and 3: Back in the day when Resident Evil was actually a very violent and gory game franchise these rocket launchers did some very brutal things to the zombies unlike the ones in the later games. The explosions would actually tear their entire limbs off!

The Magnum in RE3: Blows zombie heads clear off and looks cool. Also I like the scene where Jill uses it to kill Nemesis once and for all.

The custom shotgun in RE2: A very powerful shotgun with custom parts that is also brutal towards zombies like the rocket launcher.

Ada's crossbow in RE4: It's just fun to use because it fires explosive arrows instead of regular ones.

Excella's Syringe in RE5: Though I'm not sure that it counts as an actual weapon, but I like it because it's fun to use in The Mercenaries Reunion to watch the majini blow up with the uroboros virus.

I think for Outbreak I like all the custom weapons David can make like the spear, hammer, stun rod, and flamethrower. I also liked the explosive chemicals and acid chemicals found in the lab that you can throw.

In fact I generally liked how Outbreak used a lot of improvised weapons like brooms, metal pipes, and kitchen knives. It felt more realistic for civilian characters to use improvised weapons plus it reminded me of the Silent Hill and Siren horror games.

In terms of usability, machine guns of any type are best suited for my play style, closely followed by shotguns. Those are the weapons I always have with me on Rape Mode missions, and the only ones I need. In terms of coolness, I've always had a thing for magnums.

Another weapon that I like a lot (although I'm probably the only one) is Sheva's longbow in RE5. Normally I'm a mediocre fighter at best, but hand me that baby and I'll kill them all!

I have always noticed you refer to Raid mode as Rape mode. Why? Lol.

Because:



That's why.

I'd like to say that Chris's shaved legs are my favourite weapon, but unfortunately they can't be used as such.

I forgot to mention I also like the P.R.L. laser cannon in RE4. I think it fires the same laser technology that was used to cure Leon and Ashley of the parasite which would explain why it kills all those plagas infected enemies so quickly ( in a way it 'cures' them).
