-Missil Pod
-Plasma Rifle
-Pulse Rifle

-Fusion Blaster
-Railgun solid shot
-Railgun submunition shot
-Rail Rifle
-Seeker Missil
-Smart Missil System
-Vespid Neutron Blaster

You have been told this before, please mind your grammar this post was unsuitable, especially for creating a thread. "Wot" and such leet speak is not allowed on the forum, use grammar like you would in a simple essay. It does not have to be perfect but punctuation and capitols go a long way in helping people to understand your posts and take them seriously.

In what conditions?

How far are you?
What kind of game/objective/conditions?
What are you facing?
How many of the above question are you facing?
How tough is it (or are-they)
How many points do you have to work with?
Feeling lucky, or would you rather stick to something more dependable?

Answer all of those (probably forgot a few but these should get you started) And you should have little difficulty deciding what to use today.

Yeah, they all have thier own applications. It's kind of like asking what colour is the best to paint the markings on your Crisis suit.

For little nids, take Burst cannons and railgun submunitions, for the big guys take the railgun solid shot.

I'd pick an Ion Cannon. Enough shots to hurt horde armies, but high enough strength for killing big threats.

If I really had to choose I would say the pulse carbine, range isn't bad with good dmg and a underslung 'nade luancher all small enough to be used on the move... not to bad in my opinion

There is no 'best' Tau gun, per se. For instance, a burst cannon is obviously better than a pulse carbine, but how does it compare to a fusion blaster?

Personally, my favorite gun is the hammerhead-mounted railgun. It's got the solid shot for big gribblies and vehicles, and the submunitions for anti-infantry. It's also got one of the longest ranges in the game, beaten only by the earthshaker cannon (d'ya think firing 20 feet away is a bit much?)

Any weapon that can convince someone to join the greater good is a good weapon.

Personally my two favorit Tau weapons are the Pulse rifle and the Rail rifle.
