What are people's thoughts on the best weapons in the game? I'm at the end of a run with all of the DLCs completed, right before the battle at the dam. I'll be wearing Enclave power armor, but I'm trying to decide what weapons to take. I've had good luck using the Dinner Bell and the shotgun perks (Shotgun Surgeon and the one that adds knock down), but it could be better against armored opponents. I also use the Scout Rifle a lot, but it's damage could be higher. When I look at the weapon stats, the gauss rifle seems to be pretty much the best in the game, with both high damage and high DPS, and relatively light ammunition compared to some of the heavy weapons that might compete with it. I've been messing around with the GRA weapons, too, but none of them seem better than what I've been using. Also, it seems like the ballistic fist is the best melee/unarmed weapon.
