Even Q2's crates look better ;-)

oh noes!!! 
Assault rifle my arse. The only person I agree with is f-ing ******

Doom chainsaw
Q1 NSOE chain-lg, mjolnir, mirv, zombie gibbing sword
Q1 Zerstorer/Oum chainsaw + quad
Q1 Malice machine gun
Halflife little alien land piranhas (?)
Duke3d devastator, rocket launcher, shrink-ray, freeze gun+mighty boot
Redneck Rampage tnt/chicken crossbow, motorbike mounted machine gun
Shadow Warrior pulsing heart, nuke
GZDoom flame thrower, machine gun

Hexen2 has so many: Demoness' fireballs and lightning staff (tomed and normal), Assassin's bow, Necromancer's spellbooks. The Assassin's tomed forth weapon spawns chains from the walls, picks up the enemy and smashes them on the ground. Hexenworld even has modded weapon effects. 
I've been thinking about making a little mod (...) where, among other things, I switch weapon 4 between the Assassin and Necromancer.

The story says the Necro comes from Thysis/Egypt, and that scarab doesn't have anything to do with assassins, but everything with Egypt.

Apart from that, we're the only ones who like Hexen 2 here :-/

Oh, except Rudl. 
Halflife little alien land piranhas

Aaaahhh my stomach hurts, must stop laughing! 
Should Start A "FPS Worst Weapons Eva" Thread 
Starting off with the weird gribbley things from Half-Life.

And the Quake2 blaster. For starters.

Seemingly all of the weapons from STALKER..... 
i loved the stalker weapons. especially at the beginning, when they were inprecise. made gameplay so interesting :) 
I Tended To Find Them Infuriating 
Shoot a human in the face 20 times with a shotgun, he doesn't die then kills you with a couple of shots....... :?

Not fair! There were some good community fixes for SoC though, but I've yet so see one which will fix Clear Sky. 
Snarks, You Fools 
And they were -awesome-. I loved using them in deathmatch on unsuspecting opponents.

Just like Quake. Um, well, OK, it's just 6 or 7 shots for a grunt and 15 for a hell knight. 25 if your aim is really bad.

I know what you're saying, but this sort of plot incongruity doesn't worry me too much. But can i request auto aim for the assassin's grenades as they're just impossible to use. (could ~~almost~~ have a go at doing this myself).
Autoaim?! They work like normal hand grenades, don't they? 
Love the Knife from BF Bad Company. Nothing's more satisfying than backstabbing some prick and seeing their tags pop up on your screen.

Pyro's Flame Thrower from TF2 
Looks Like This Thread's Been Necro'd 
Well, I'll just say that the most satisfying to use FPS weapon I can think of right now is Zerstorer's Riot Controller.

Oh and for melee, the monomolecular Dragon Sword from Deus Ex. 
Mohaa sniper rifle! 
Q2/3 Railgun 
Owns your sniper rifle. 
Grenades from BF:1942 The bodies actually get some air 
I hate Q2, for me was worse game ever... didn�t play more than first or second level... 
Slow and crap. 
Was a hurried game that wasn't done by the self-imposed deadline. Carmack being, Carmack wanted to release a piece of crap 'on time' instead of something polished and finished. Sad thing is id had the kind of pull the Blizzard does and could have pushed back the release to 'when it's done' like Blizzard does. 
the worst game evah is...
counter strike 
I think the design theory was wrong - slow gameplay, unimaginative monsters and so on.

Basically you fight loads of humanoids. There should have been more hybridized creatures like the mdeic, gladiator and parasite.

Imagine very few human style creatures and the same speed as Q1. 
i am digidroid

i destroy humanoids 
inertia go destroy pussys... NOOB 
Great game, one of my favourites ever.
