Big guns. Favorite of player characters every where, in every genre. Even if the genre doesn't have guns. They'll go looking for the damage equivalent. Such is the manner of player characters. After all negotiations go so much better with a kind word and superior firepower than they do with a kind word. And you can't deny the appeal of making shit go boom! Doesn't matter what shit it is, it just needs to go boom. Preferably with large explosions filled with colors. Lots and lots of colors. Just watch out for the recoil.
