Your Javelins have many interesting abilities in Anthem, but that doesn't mean you should forget your old-fashioned weapons either. Just like most shooters, the special attacks are cool but the guns are what deal the real damage when in the heat of battle.
We quickly realised this when we found a really great sniper rifle and used it against the very challenging enemies on Grandmaster difficulty. Could it be the best weapon in Anthem? You can watch the gameplay and be the judge.
