SMG for me. Gives you quicker kills IMO.

I voted for Shotgun. It is a slow weapon, yes, but Lara's skills make up for it and usually one single shot will drop the baddie. My only gripe is there aren't many of them in the entire game.

They're especially good against Takamoto. I also happened to perform the aerial vault on him! You need to have a perfect timing, otherwise he'll just hit you with his piece of Excalibur and drop you down, but if you get through and with the shotgun (plenty of them in the dragon area), you're in to make some massive damage onto him! :eek:

And it also doesn't cause much damage from far distances.

That's right, but I love getting up face-to-face before even firing it, just jumping and rolling around like some freak until I can eventually slide or vault off the bad guy to shoot him down. This while all the others keep watching. :p

At least it's accurate every time.
Try carrying, let alone repeatedly swinging a... what? 15-20lb sword?

Fully upgraded dual pistols and the assault rifle.

First, the dual pistols are Lara's trademark; then, fully upgraded, they can almost match the SMG in terms of raw damage - and since you don't have to worry about ammo, you can just blast and jump until everyone goes down... sooner or later they'll be dead.

For harder targets... nothing beats the M16. If only Lara could do the sniper-shot with it.

It's not the M16 rifle - it's RC650.
Besides, M16 is not the assault rifle - it's an automatic rifle. It fires short bursts, but can't fire all the way until the clip is depleted.

None of the weapons in TRL are licensed, so there is no point trying to establish exactly "which gun" it is.

Да, я мега-профессор, а вы мега-грамотей по удаффкомофским понятиям. :) Поздравляю.

Back to English.
Actually, you can view the names of the assault rifle and the SMG via PDA.

Едритт... шо в лоб, шо по лбу... лишь бы что накорябать...

RC650 is a "made-up" name for the weapon that is not licensed, but patterned after M16 or M4 Carbine more precisely (80% part commonality with M16).

A similar weapon appeared in previous TR games, and if my faulty memory serves me correctly it was traditionally referred to by players as "M16" or "assault rifle".

By the way, an "assault rifle" is a weapon capable of self-reloading AND selective fire (single and bursts and/or full auto). An "automatic" weapon simply means self-reloading - you can find books on automatic weapons that only feature semi-autos and not a single full-auto.

Of course the weapon in TRL doesn't have a "selective fire" option, but again, it's an unlicensed weapon that doesn't really exist, so the whole point is moot.

Ниче-ниче, ты исчо маленький и глупый. Жизнь научит :)

Ничё-ничё, стану ещё взрослее и буду вообще отмороженным на всю голову.
Well, that still leaves the fact, that Core design didn't do their homework, as they should have in "TR2". M16 can only fire short bursts - it can't go full auto.
P. S. You can select the fire mode in "TR5" in the last episode. I'll still try to find info on RC650.

Assault rifle.

If they had brought back Desert Eagle in TRL, that'd be my fave weapon of choice.

I don't think her dual pistols ever had a brand, they've always been "custom made".

BTW, I'm honestly glad they ditched the past games' arsenal and limited the player to 1 extra weapon + grenades. I hope they never bring back the old akimbo weaponry, but make the dual pistols a bit stronger next time.

That said, I would love to see more options for extra weapons. A sniper rifle would be an obvious one, how about a crossbow or a regular bow? And a few more melee implements of death wouldn't hurt either - a girl can't survive on groin kicking alone...

I think that it's not real name of the guns because Tomb Raider don't have licence.

Uhhuh... RGP Mach 5... right... right there with RC650... :lol:

In-game Lara's twin pistols never had a real brand.

In the movies, Angie wielded a pair of what is purported to be heavily modified and de-branded Heckler & Koch USPs:

Best picture I could find on short notice...

Legend Lara's pistols resemble what Movie Lara had, seen here:

But they are, again, unlicensed.

In this game I would say it's a toss up between Excalibur and the pistols (which are better here than in any other game.)
But I say bring back the cross bow and desert eagle!:D

If they do that, hopefully when you zoom in it won't be so damn choppy when moved around.

Come to think of it, Lara's pistols never had a mark. The other weapons did, though. And, Olgerth, you're right - all weapons in "Legend" are not real. The SMG has its name in the game, but it looks exactly like MP5. Not sure, what the original model of the assault rifle is.
