I was curious if I can pass it using only guns, and it worked surprisingly well.

Well, I was happy to find GCB early, and it did help a lot.

Well-modded Combat Pistol is maybe even more effective, but GCB is so much more fun, and its volleys sometimes help, if I need to tank a whole pack of Arachnotrons :D

At about character L14/dungeon L25, this becomes pretty monotone: you can just tank on, no one will stand a 0.1s gunfire. At about L40, with SoG5 and Sob3, I was able to just shoot down a Mancubi/Vile packs I spawned nearby.

In fact, I didn't need a Dualgunner, and should have taken a Scavenger. Now I was just leaving Jackhammers and such behind.

Intuition2 + Phaseshift set makes you virtually invincible. Sometimes I was forgetting you shouldn't push barrels into lava.

Problem with burst pistols (and with Storm bolter any non-unique can be made burst) is that you can only squeeze so much damage in 0.1s, before you'll start missing because of knockback.
So, it boils down to magazin size (where Bulk Storm Combat Pistol shines), and other quirks like plasma element or ammo regen. So, beretta is nice, but far from best. Except may be for Gun Kata.

I can argue that.
  • GCB does have a single-shot mode, in which it deals 2d6 (7 on average), which is better than 3d3 (average 4.5, 5.5 if it's P-modded) of a Combat Pistol.
  • Optional burst mode gives you more flexibility.
  • Burst fire is great when I need to sweep a nearly-spawned bunch of enemies, normally of 3x3 size. In this case, only last of them gets knocked back, which means I already swept out two Barons or Viles or Mancubi.
  • I also take some levels in SoB.
In fact, I liked the knockback and P-modded a pistol for purpose. It gives me some time to reload or shoot the other enemies.
With EE2, missing is apparently not a problem.
And still, in single-shot mode

Well, I still agree Energy Combat Pistol on WK2 is more ammo-efficient.
