I haven't unlocked them all yet, but so far I'm liking the Bow and the knife the most. I make most of my kills with those. The bow has the advantage of being able to recover spent ammo. It also seems more prone to 1 hit kills on regularl animals and enemies. It can't one shot tougher creatures I think, but that's when I take out my assault rifle or knife. The knife is great for stealth kills and running up to enemies that haven't gone on the offensive, if they're close enough. I haven't even tried using the specialty arrows (fire and explosive), namely because I haven't unlocked them XD

The sniper rifle that came with the DLC was pretty good too. It helped me in an early mission, though I ran out of ammo and just switched back to the bow XD

Hmm, it's a toss up between the bushman and the Z93. I like being able to rambo my way through, but shooting a canister and watching chaos ensue -- and people burn -- is strangely satisfying. More than in Just Cause 2.

At the moment I like the F1, with a silencer, and reflex sights. I just unlocked the Bull, pretty cool weapon as well.

Here's my slots:
M-700 with Extended Mags and High Power Scope
44. Magnum with Extended Barrel and Night Sights (I have the Cannon, but I can't stand a scope on a revolver. Not classic.
Gl-94 (for those pesky vehicle patrols and juggernauts, also great for starting fires)
Recurve Bow with Marksman Sight

You could honestly use these 2 weapons for mostly anything. The Recurve is my favorite, and I think that 714 kills with it backs that up.

I have unlocked all of the Sigatures, but the only one that fits my style is the Japanese Tanto and Shadow.

Hmm, difficult. I quite like them all. Here are my slots in no perticular order:

1: Mk14 rifle. Its just so versatile. I use it silenced. Its my main sneaking weapon.

2: "The Bull" specialised pump action. This is what i hold whilst travelling through areas with dangerous game. It can one shot most animals if you get a good headshot and it eats enemies alive when stealth fails.

3: Z93 antimaterial sniper. I use it silenced. Just a handy long range beast of a gun. Killed a jeep driver and his rear seat passenger in one shot yesterday. Aww yeah.

4: Noob tube Grenade launcher. Was awesome against heavys until i unlocked the takedown ability. Now i just use it because its a load of fun. I do sometimes swap them out for RPG's though. Both are very powerful and excellent at anti-vehicle, antipersonnel and for starting huge fires.

But as i said i like all the weapons and swap them out often. I use the bow an aweful lot aswell and often the .44 with extended barrel.

The Recurve bow is the difficulty killer in this game by all means...

I partial to the M700 with silencer and hi-power scope myself. I especially like shooting sharks and helpless turtles with it.

While the guns are awesome, I'm gonna have to go with the knife. It's just a beastly thing for stealth characters and those takedowns, those takedowns are the sexiest things next to Marilyn Monroe in an ice cream shop.

I guess the recurve bow could be a close second. It's a great all around weapon and could honestly take you to end game.

Probably just the AK. It's the best "desert island" weapon. They're everywhere, and super reliable.
Though I did get really excited when I got to the second island and unlocked the H&K 416. I didn't even realize they were in the game.
Other than that, the 1911, because it's the sexiest handgun ever created.

And the bow is just fun to use.

Ahhh... the good old 1911. My Grandpa still his his standard issue from WW2, and I have a few models myself.

Puts those 9mm to shame. Although, my grandpa's pistol can't hit the broad side of a barn, but who cares. Mr. Browning sure knew how to design a hell of a good looking gun.

Yeah, I got giddy when Dennis hands you the wad of cash and you go into the store to buy a gun, and the only one available is the 1911.
I knew I was going to really like this game from that moment.

I have 2 myself, the normal .45, as well as the .38 super.

Definitely the Recurve Bow. Not really for stealth purposes, but more for it being the weapon I have accomplished the most with.

I also like to go Rambo by sprinting into a compound with my bow, sliding to cover and killing a person or two before running to a different spot.

Well seeing as I like stealth, but also being able to get out of sticky situations easily, the Recurve Bow is my favorite weapon, it's my stealth, crowd control (fire arrows) and vehicle takedown (explosive arrows) weapon. My second and third would be the Shredder and Bushman, respectively, I carry them on me at all times for backup. Can the knife count as a weapon too? Because I love doing takedowns!

I'll be honest, I only used the bow to get the trophy for the 70m kill. Have'nt really used it since.
I'm still looking for my fav weapon. I seem to be swapping them around everytime I'm at the store.

Right now I'm rocking the Shadow, the Shedder, a silenced and scoped M700 and the Bull (for close encounters with wildlifes). I did use a silenced... third assault rifle (the semi-auto one that I forget the name of) but since the M700 is a better option for long range kills I dropped it for the Shredder.
I like me some sound-suppressed weapons.

I would use the recurve more often, but I haven't yet been able to get a handle on arrow drop at longer distances, and resorted to back pedalling like mad when hunting the rare animals with it.

Haven't really had much cause to use the RPG or the grenade launcher so far, since I prefer to scope places out from several angles with the camera and then pick dudes off rather than going in guns blazing.

Also, I keep setting myself on fire with the flamethrower.

My four weapons slots are the Shadow, the Shredder, the Bushman and the Z93. I use the Shredder and the Z93 the most though. For the outposts I always found a vantage point and sniped everyone with the sniper. If there was anyone that I couldn't find I would hunt them down with the Shredder which is ridiculously good although it's ammo does run out quickly.
