Some of the weapons definitely take some getting used to. I had to figure out how these weapons work to three star all the drills.

The Shock Rifle is a one-shot kill if you land a headshot.

The Needler can be effectively evaded if the enemy picks a direction perpendicular to you and does not stop moving in that direction; if they juke, they're dead.

With the Bulldog, you have to start firing a bit sooner than you typically would with a shotgun to win the engagement rather than being able to decide an engagement with a single point-blank shot. It's a change in strategy but it's still viable.

Disruptor is great for grouped up enemies (chain lightning) and three shots on a single enemy will trigger a shield drain effect that not only DoTs for ~5s, but as a consequence effectively doubles the time it takes for shield recharge to trigger.

The Ravager is probably the weakest weapon, but one thing the AoE can do is reset people's shield recharge timer. Also, I think it disrupts the vision of people being hit? It's feels like it is meant as a support weapon for a second person alongside you.

Everything in the sandbox has a place; some of them are situationally particular, but they do seem very intentionally designed.
