What du you think is the best hunting weapon? I am planning to play a Praetorian RT who likes to go hunting. Deer, Foxes, Rak'Gol, Eldar, mobile trees that shoot lightning and radiation…whatever the lokal forest-equivalents have to offer.
So what do you think is the best gun for huning? Right now I'm going for a Nomad Hunting Instrument with Targeter, Maglev-Impeller, Omni-scope and Hyperdensity Penetrators (Organgrinders being unusually cruel for hunting). Anything else?
The weapon you state is quiet good, but the weapon you will choose to hunt (terran) Foxes will not be the best choice for a Rak´Gol and the other way around. If the round (or shot) you use to kill the prey will turn it into a mangled mess…. we are not talking about hunting. You do not hunt small animals with the literal elephant gun.
Approach it different from "combat weapon selection". Have a "hunting caddy" with an assortment of rifles and have one hunting releated, statted main weapon. The hunting weapons do not really need to have stats, have they? Ask your GM, I think he will gladly agree to use a different game mechanic for hunting then he will use for serious combat, so that your hunting rifle selection will merely become an equipment bonus and a matter of roleplay and description.
