It's situational, but grenade launcher, sniper rifle and machine gun so far. Then again, I had to restart after the savegame break, so I haven't gotten around to using the more advanced stuff yet.

I do prefer the electromagnetic rifle to the assault rifle because it does more damage and has a better range and it allows developing both assault and sniper weapon skills.

in this situation i suggest you must hit the alien's head very hard with the grenade launcher.
or else arrange it so that a grenade would explode in front of the alien and the alien's body might serve as a cover for you.

Found the Riot Shotgun to be one of my favourites, especially at close range bout 10 or less grid spaces, the Rocket Launcher is good for thinning numbers if the Aliens are stupid enough to remain in my line of sight

Although the alien heavy armour will wreck it i love the machine gun early on , as at least some of the bullters will hit the alien at medium -long range and it works great at medium -close range =Lead dragon

I have not had the choice to play the coil gun it sound like fun for now i love the sniper rifle

I also have found a new appreciation for the riot shotgun. It just needs a crowded map and/or a soldier with high accuracy.

Though a machine gun can still get impressive results and has a great damage output. Yesterday one of my machine gunners racked up four kills in a single mission. The machine gun is also my absolute favorite for starting fighter crash missions if you can line it up to get more than one alien in one full burst.

My gunner scored three kills with one full burst once. The mission was over during my first round.
