I'd be interested to know what you've got equipped now, given that Blizz seems to have forgotten to put any guns in the ICC loot tables.

You should grab the Stakethrower from normal/heroic Blood Queen Lana'thel. I'm currently sporting the heroic version until I get heroic Zod's or Fal'inrush. Though I have overriden the gunshot sounds with bow sounds. Hate the gunshots.

http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50444 is what Frostheim has equipped (boe tank gun).Also, agreed about the lack of guns. Guns>bows all day long for me. There are 4 dps bows/crossbows (2 of each), and only one straight dps gun (from blood queen), although to be fair, the damage and dps on the linked gun is pretty sweet. Just too bad there wasn't anything to rival envy of mortality since... envy of mortality.

Ranged weapon sounds are terrible. There is a very simple addon to make them uber awesome tho:http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/pewpew3.aspxbecause being a hunter just isn't cool unless you're firing lasers like Han Solo.

I currently have both the Stakethrower and Rowan's Rifle. Currently with my gear setup Rowan's is more overall dps for me, so that's what I usually use.

I was fortunate enough to get the BRK-1000, possibly the only one on my server. I've temporarily stopped raiding, but I'd be quite happy if I was still carrying that weapon into Cataclysm. That's a hard to get weapon, even now./salute Daniel.

Oh yeah, wasn't saying you were making a bad choice Frost, was just saying that that's what you had equipped. I don't really play a hunter, but I enjoy the column enough to comment (and I'm guessing that since the weapon dps on the Rowan's Rifle is much higher than stakethrower, that makes it a better weapon overall for a gun-toting dwarf).Also, I really don't care what weapon you use, so long as you are pro at laying frost traps down on saurfang and dreamwalker, set your pets on kinetic bombs on princes, and dps like a madman at all times.
