    I would probably take one of the rocket launchers I remember using in the Quake and/or Unreal game franchises. Packs a huge punch, can fire 6 at a time, and can lock onto a target.

    Still a lethal round and a tiny bit more accurate then a 7.62, but the lack of punch when comparing the rounds makes the 7.62/.308 a much better round for just about anything.

    While the 5.56 may get a bit farther there is a reason why DMR's and snipers use a 7.62/.308 as you can definitely reach out and touch someone/thing. The 7.62/.308 is still one of the longest shots in history and reall only the .50 and .338 lapua beat it out.

    Sadly the 5.56 is a .22 on steroids and loses alot with range and Im sure not knowing an aliens anatomy (think battle LA) a bigger round will be more forgiving when hunting or defending yourself.

    Exactly why I would pick any 7.62 over 5.56 round. I would love to bring an old school German Mauser K98k, but the 6 shots per minute is kinda killer. :(

    5.56 vs 7.62 in assault rifles is what i am talking about in effective range....not in sniper rifles. completely different. The military was talking about a 6.xx for assault rifles because it has better range then the 7.62 and better stopping power then the 5.56. The military wants to keep a 500 yard range for their rifles. The current m4 is only good for 450 compared to the m16 is 500 because of the shorter barrel. Although, they still qual people for 500 lol. The ak would have a horrible time shooting at 500 yards.

    Gun? No gun. A sick child to amuse them with. They'll all be dead in a matter of weeks from the pandemic that's sure to spread.
