Best Assault Weapon

What do you think is the best weapon for the assault class? I have unlocked all weapons and mods and am trying to figure out the best weapon to use in most close quarter battles.

  • CR2, hands-down. Why is EL16HFE the 400 kill gun for assault? NOT WORTH IT, it should be Phasma's F11D instead
    Face it, Battlefront 2 sucks. OK then, why do I play it?
    I'm starting to regret ever getting Battlefront. My brothers annoy me by pretending my nerf guns are in-game blasters lol.

    (While playing on Battlefront's buggy servers):"Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunctions, but uh ...everything's perfectly alright now." "What have you done?! I'm backwards!!!"

    El is good if you get headshots.

    It is definitely better at long range, but CR2 is a no-brainer indoors

    I use the A280 on every blast map except for Theed, and go on average 40-5

  • OK thank you guys for the feedback.

    CR-2 by far. A280 if you are good with aim and headshots.

  • They're all pretty dead for assault guns. This class should have the best versitile skill canons.
  • A280.

    Yep, once you get used to how it fires, it has pretty good stopping power with the mods. Getting the mods can be frustrating though. It's a mess like all the other out of the box modable guns. The EL16 would be better if it had a faster ROF when not using the scope.

  • I love the A280. Assuming you can actually... ahem... AIM, it can work at both long range and short. CR-2 destroys close range, but anything beyond medium range you can barely hit, much less kill. A280 is my weapon of choice for 90% of situations/maps.

    And call me crazy, but the default weapon actually isn't bad. I use it sometimes just for the lulz. People get mad when you kill them with it, for some reason. Maybe cuz I'm a level 46 Assault class using the starter weapon, lol.
  • They all work better based on map / CQC mode each requires a technique based on lag if you are lazy just pick A280 but a good EHL16 player will Knock yout down 9/10 times
  • Most of the blast maps have shorter range encounters most of the time, so CR-2 is easily the best. A280 and EL16 HFE both feel underpowered to me, though I will still choose EL16 HFE over CR2 on certain maps like Endor and Jakku where there are some longer range areas.
  • I use A280 for almost all situations, it can one burst troopers at close range and at medium to long range, it can still hit shots very effectively and accurately.
    Definitely the weapon of my choice

    For CQC the CR2 rules, but for all around effective combat the A280.
    The EL16's ROF is way TOO SLOW for an assault weapon. Before the EL16 can deal enough damage to an opponent with a spamming CR2, you are dead (or most opposing weapons). As a ranged weapon it is good, but who wants to stand way back from the fight to use it that way?
    A280 all the way for general assault (with the burst mod of course).

  • EL16 is trash. You need all 3 mods to make it good. You can't use it up close because it's too slow. You can't use it for a sniper rifle because of the 2 out of 3 mod limit. The only place I use the EL16 is on Crait as First Order with Dual Scope and Reduced Recoil. The only reason being it became a habit with Specialist having 100 Health.
