I have to say the Riot Gun.  I just love me a good shotty.  Too bad the game lacks a ridiculously overpowered double barreled shotgun.

The Striker is my favorite since you can upgrade it to the max fairly easy.  It can hold 100 shells and you can shoot multiples people's faces off in one shot because it has the widest spread.

Can't go wrong with a handgun. Makes everyone look like a Badass.

And when you think about it, its the hero's choice of weapons.

Dirty Harry - Handgun, John McClanes Same, as is Jack Bauer, James Bond, Solid Snake, Indiana Jones, Leslie Nielsen in Naked Gun, Robocop, etc, etc

  1. Because it was cool looking to reload.
  2. Because you can upgrade it to do more damage than any other pistol.
  3. Because it's LOUD.
  4. Because.

The Red 9 Fully upgraded! Just a great all around weapon.

Killer 7 is also a boss killer but there is too little ammo to use it in much of the game. Get the Red 9 and upgrade early and often!

The magnum, because it does damage equal to that of the RPF once fully upgraded. And there's two!

Yeah, I'd consider the Broken Butterfly a "boss killer" before deeming any other weapon with the generous distinction of "being even close." 

Seriously, it's maximum damage is higher than that of a Rocket Launcher. 

And, I don't know if I have a "favorite" weapon, but I certainly used the Striker more than toiler paper.

For me it has to be the Chicago Typewriter, it's just awesome to just blindly fire at everything that get's in my way. hehe

Gotta love unloading a clip of bullets from the Black Tail with a 36 round mag into a hoard of infected villagers.

The Handcannon is a ton of fun to use, but it makes the game super-easy so it's a love/hate thing :P.

Out of the regular ones, I'll have to go with the Blacktail. Out of the unlockable weapons, it's definately the Handcannon. Sure it makes the game ridiculously easy once fully upgraded, but damn it's fun to use.

Pistol shot to the face, Suplex to the ground, knife to finish him off. The ultimate hard-mode ammo conserver.
