Are you playing a soldier? If not, lose all but the essential weapons to minimize power recharge times. Second, you should really have upgraded those guns by now.... do you have an earlier save where you can play with your loadout a bit?

Tactically it's probably a tank, but even then that doesn't really apply anymore. Socially there isn't a good parallel either, unless you want to be cynical. Democracy and advancing technology put an end (by and large) to some rich twat on a horse charging down some peasants. One of the battles of the Hundred Years War saw hundred of French knights killed by regular Welsh longbowmen in a single failed charge, that was really a major turning point of armoured charges vs technology. The last major use of horseback cavalry in wartime was probably during WW1, where they were replaced by tanks after facing down too many machine guns, though now even tanks are facing the same problem vs anti tank weapons the size of a poster tube. Fact is there's no call for someone who is rich and martially skilled, a person of money nowadays who would want to be 'chivalrous' or 'virtuous' would, as has been said earlier, likely be a philanthropist or some such. We've replaced military heroes with sporting figures as role models in terms of respecting physical skill and technique.
Yeah, so I guess the FBI thinks them Juggalos are up to no good. I'm not entirely sure if this is hilarious or stupid, it may be both. Does failure to accept magnetism as a natural occurrence count as criminal behaviour? Will hard working clowns be arrested for wearing gang colours? Who can say. I REALLY hope this ends with a bunch of riot cops turning up at the gathering of the Juggalos under the auspices of breaking up suspected gang activity. Actually, does the gathering even happen anymore?
I'm finding I do my best work with the Stalker boltgun (burst fire, tac readout) or the heavy bolter (iron halo, H.B. Expertise), though if I'm in the right mood chainsword + plasma pistol assault has gotten me a LOT of kills in seize ground, the PPs extra armour damage is great for setting up melee kill. I'm most comfortable in situations where I can get to a spot and just rain bullets down onto a control point, picking off opportunistic raptors and such. I play Crimson Fists in the tabletop game, setting up a firebase with bolt weapons is sort of what they do best, so if you see a dude in dark blue armour with red hands bullet hosing a point it's likely me.
Quick tip about enemy assault marines, if they don't know what they're doing, or you catch them unawares, they'll likely boost up for a ground pound right in front of you. Drop a grenade at the right time and roll back so when they land the 'nade'll go off and strip their armour, then go nuts on their face with whatever firearm you do so choose. The trick is not to do it too early so they see the bomb and alter their landing. Also, interrupt attacks are pretty useful if a chainsword or an axe guy tries to get you, but I usually find that if a hammer guy gets the drop on you it's pretty much curtains.
Totally looking forward to a sequel to this with more fleshed out multiplayer, by which I mean, totally looking forward to a sequel where you can equip a power fist.
