    As an easy reference, unless you are really experienced at shooting and healing at the same time, you should follow the following guidelines for choosing your fixer weapon:

    1. It should be quick. You need to aim and shoot really fast, and expect to hit your target most of the time.
    2. It should handle assassins. You need to be capable of either being able to make speeders rethink attacking you, or prevent them from doing so completely.
    3. It should require very little thought. If you are a dedicated fixer, you shouldn't waste time thinking of WHEN the weapon needs to be useful, you should be able to unload it without thinking when the time comes.

    Given all of this, sniper cannon and mine are both good options. Grenade launcher needs a lot of thought(and I say this as a newbie grenadier myself) and does not protect you against speeders, nor is it quick to aim and shoot, and it also needs a high training and item level to really shine. Least recommended unless you are a highly experienced grenadier, and even then, not highly recommended.

    If I ever played fixer(I'm really bad at it, so not likely) I'd carry a carro+snipe combo into battle. Maybe carro+blast cannon, since I'm good with blasts. When it's a question of a single weapon, however, sniper cannons are NEVER a bad idea.

    If I played fixer, I'd go mine (for close range deterrent) and fire bomb ( for longer range damage plus advantage of contribution from others shooting burning ship) .
    Sniper, big torp or napalm are also pretty good options too IMO .

    Real talk, for just 1 weapon, point damage is preferred. You want reliability so you can defend yourself. Once you get 2 slots you'll have a lot more freedom. If you wanna stick to offensive weapons, try flare + ex cannon for a good balance of burst and support. If you just want support weapons, look towards incendiary weapons and mines. Of the choices you listed in the poll, I'd take sniper. It's a very reliable weapon at long range and decently reliable at close range (it'll hit but not hurt so much when it doesn't crit). Personally I just like to bring 2 blasts on my fixer, I've gotten top damage many times that way.

    Sniper cause you want to fight long range, out of the battlefield but close to your teammates.

    The best weapon for a fixer is the easiest and most accurate sniper cannon. But don’t focus on damage, you only have one weapon slot. Focus on healing your teammate who has 2-5. If you keep them alive they can do far more damage than you can.

    I like long reload weapons that dont need alot of time to aim like missiles or firebomb and then something close range when you're being blitzed like grenade or any cannon

    Napalm and mines are perfect for the area control they provide, as a fixer you'll usually want to set up a defensive position.
    Flare gun is brilliant for lighting up those infiltrating speeders/enfos and sending them running. The added damage to your teams cannons will also massively boost your star earning potential.

    Oh ye, and a carronade is a great tool to punish those pesky speeders when they try to rush you.

    I don't know much of anything about Grenades, but I would suggest you don't use Mines. They aren't going to do much against smart assassin Speeders, and you want to be able to defend yourself. Of the three, I'd suggest Sniper Cannon, but ultimately it comes down down to what you're good with. If you're a monster with a Big Torpedo, then by all means, go ahead.

    Lead time is massive, and when assassins are after you, it'll feel like you're swinging a greatsword at a fly. Not recommended unless you have all "bolt-scope" type weapons(torps and bolts only)

    Sniper is a great weapon, but not at the begining : you need to increase critical% before.
    If you have sniper with less than 15 or 20% to do critical strike -> use canon or blast ...

    Sniper is good after tiers3 rare or tiers2 epic, to equip the absolutely needed perks.
