Any sniper rifle with an Advanced Angled Foregrip (Arulco Folding Stock)

Makes quick shots with semi auto snipers a viable solution

Like Apple pie, Baseball, and the IRS, M14 with an EBR stock. 7.62x51 NATO. There's a reason the M14 has never really gone out of style. "I don't want no teenage queen, just give me my M14"
Now really, how many songs or saying has anyone made up about an Enfield or a HK?

Prior to 1.13 the throwing knife was one of my favorites weapons, sneaking around at night, taking out one after the other without anybody taking notice.

I always liked the Mini-14, SKS and AK type rifles.

Mini-14 (add a trigger group boo-yeah!)
M4a1
AKM (Add drum-mag, add suppressor, cold loaded ammo and a PSO-3)
Kar98k is also great

Any pistol with 8+ mag capacity and high stopping power, yet not too damn large.

In the early and mid game I love to give as many of my guys a sawn-off shotgun with buckshot. The reason for that is that in the new releases you can use ''burst'' (both barrels) to shoot, making it an extremely deadly close-range panic gun to litter your enemy with two full buckshot rounds.
Adding to that, Buckshot/Slugs are very very cheap ammo types so you can buy a bunch of boxes off of Tony for next to nothing.

Of course, later in the game the enemies get fancy armor and your buckshot is going to be useless, but you could always use your then gained riches to buy boxes of fancy ammo like flashbang shells and smoke shells to use the shotty as a support weapon...
And when you get into the late part of the game, you'll have all the fancy smancy superguns like the P90 with armor-chewers, and so on...

But I love the sawn off shotgun, it just has that very cool ''outlaw'' appeal, and shooting a double shot of buckshot into a guys face never gets old.

Gotta be honest.
I've got a bit of a crush on the L1A1 and Vietnam era webbing for my IMP.

AN-94 with tracer ammo for its two-round burst as well as the ability to mount a GP-25 is great. AR-57 is ridiculously good.

It started with the TAR21... now it's the G36C, but I just found a G36K RAS... that might be my new baby. Comes with a Side-arm sniper rifle SR-25 and a MP7 and Five-Seven just to be on the safe side.

Wink with lots of hand grenades happy with Vickie with 2 Sr-1 Gyurzas behind Wink, alongside Meltdown with 2 Hi-Cap 1911's & a police vest full of assorted 40mm grenades for her M-79, and , Buzz with a LMG back a ways with an IMP sniper to keep things under control, with Scope and her M1 Carbine off to the side to watch the flank. Then there's Vinny to say "Yo, a losers convention." and provide suppression support should the enemy sneak up behind us.

Actually, I try different things all the time but stay away from most of the newer weapons 'cause I'm old school.

Oh yeah, and Fox . . . who follows Vinny around and keeps him out of trouble with her Glocks.

- HK G11
Very accurate burst fire with high penetration armor ammo, just all you need in night operations, but also quite effective on day as well.

- HK 23E
Give it to a machinegunnner and he will be a killing machine.

Knight SR25
You can mount all the best goodies on this and it will be still pretty light on weight for a sniper rifle.

- DSR1
Best used with a marksman or sniper, the high penetration ammo make the difference on later levels.

- KSVK
Not so slow on expert hands, but it can kill people with one shot even aiming on high armored busts.

- HK G11 PDW
Use the same ammo of the G11, so very effective against armored people, give 2 of these jewels to a ambidextrous gunfighter and you will create something like Lara Croft on the first tomb raider.

- Colt M4 commando
You may get this early in the game and it is still pretty good even on later levels.

Generally I find the 5.56/5.45 rifles don't do anywhere near enough damage against enemies as their armour gets better, which is why I used the AR-57 in my most recent playthrough. It has decent range, minimal recoil and with AET ammo it chews people up. I'm starting a new playthrough though and I want to experiment with the 6.8x43mm weapons. I did try the SCAR-68 but it seemed too inaccurate to be worth the AP costs. The 6x35mm PDWs were actually very effective from what I remember but it's been a long time I tried using them.

Alright, I firmly believe the Robarms XCR-1 is the best assault rifle in the game. It's got the range, damage and accuracy of the FAL OSW and the auto/burst-fire controllability of lighter 5.56/5.45 ARs, and as a bonus it takes less APs to ready/fire than the FAL, quite a chunk more than the TAR but it's well worth it for the extra damage. Granted, I am using the trigger group but even on auto it performs well with short bursts. Average hit rate is around 35%, not counting Shank who I just use for (ineffective) suppressive fire. One more thing I really like about it is 25-round mags, which means the ammo boxes divide up real nicely, no more having to sort half-full mags out of a pile.

My favourite pistols are the Five-seveN because of its armour penetration, generally good stats and the Hi-Cap M1911 for the same reason, AET ammo is pretty much necessary on it once you start encountering armoured enemies though.

My favorite weapons are always the most effective weapons. For Build 7609 and several compared parameters they are:

Melee, Knife
KCB Knife. It cuts through fences, wire and flesh. A standard-issue knife for every merc in my team.
Utility Knife is for Technician. It is used to disassemble and for lock-picking.

Handgun, Machine pistol
Stechkin APS. Uses 9*18 ammo (you'll have your ammo replenished free of charge after each battle), small (fits into small pistol holster, if no silencer is used), 20 rounds in magazine, automatic fire, long range, low AP cost. Has weight of only 1 kg.
Absolute leader for handguns is actually FN Five-seveN, but you'll be counting your every shot due to deficit of 5.7x28mm ammo. And this ammo type is also insanely expensive. So my pistol of choice as sidearm for every merc in my teams is Stechkin APS.

Submachine gun
AEK-919K "Kashtan", only thanks to 9x18mm ammo.
Absolute leader is in fact Magpul PDR-D (range, accuracy, damage, low AP cost). But it uses 6x35mm (rare and expensive). Second best is FN P90, but 5.7x28mm ammo (rare and expensive).

Assault rifle
XM-8 Sharpshooter. Uses 5.56x45mm (laying around in piles after each battle). It has range, accuracy, low weight. But average AP cost. And coolness is 9 (available late in game).
Second best is Diemaco C7A2. Same reasons, but slightly more weight and AP cost. Though almost twice as cheap as XM-8 Sharpshooter. And coolness is 5 (available sooner in game).
Third best is FN SCAR-L SV, as it beats Diemaco C7A2 in range, but looses in weight and price.

Machine gun
It would be ideal logistics-wise to use same type of ammo for LMG as for AR. But 5.56x45mm lacks range. And LMG must be beyond reach of AR to provide effective pin-down fire. Therefore...
The best is HK 21E with 7.62x51mm (relatively cheap and widespread). It has range, accuracy, damage, low AP cost, many attachment slots, average weight.
Second best is Rheinmetall MG3. Yes, Maschinengewehr 42 still beats the crap out of them.
Third best (and first best among 5.56x45mm ammo) is HK MG43. It uses 5.56x45mm ammo, good range, accuracy and damage, low weight, low AP cost (and one of lowest Ready Time AP cost).

Sniper rifle
It would be ideal logistics-wise to use same type of ammo for SR as for LMG.
So second-best is CZ 700 using 7.62x51mm ammo. It has Coolness=8, good range, accuracy and damage, 10 rounds magazine, semi-auto, low AP cost.
But first best of all is DSR-1 using .338 Lapua ammo. It has it all-round best: range, accuracy and damage, 10 rounds magazine, semi-auto, low AP cost, low weight. Of course, there are bigger 12 mm rifles, but they just can't compete in effectiveness (gained result versus spent resources) with DSR-1.

*AP cost = [Ready Time] + [APs to Attack] + [APs to Burst] (where applicable) + [APs to Autofire] (where applicable) + [APs To Reload] + [APs To Reload Manually].
*Shotguns cannot be considered serious combat equipment.
*I've opted out of using SMGs as a weapon for my team. I've adjusted game settings so I have Bobby Ray sell assault rifles ASAP, and I have Stechkin APS with auto-fire as sidearm.
*Rifles are inferior to assault rifles so I don't use them as standard weapons. I give trophy SKS to my sniper as SKS gets into game early, before I save enough money to buy guns specified above.

I haven't started comparing grenade launchers and mortars yet.
