big mek w shokk attack gun
lobba, kannon, zzap gun
who is the shootiesest in th ork army
Why no shootas? The poll really only has one choice.
Things I like to shoot with besides Lootas and shootas:
Stompa with Deff Arsenal (!)
Dedeye, da ace Kan Grot and his tRUSTY rokkit
A Kannon battery is really a bargain....
My two favouite choices are absent...a) Bikes! Rolling lots of dice and rerolling again for lots of fails! Lovely!!b) bare shoota boys!! these guys will simply shatter an equal force of tactical marines in a pure gun fight!!
Clearly lootas. No opinion needed.
Lootas shoot. Thats pretty much it. They even are the proud owners of the only Heavy Ork infantry gun.
Shokks aren't really shooty... they're blasty.
Ard Boys (I assume you mean shoota ones) are just about as good at beating people with they're guns as they are shooting, and the assault nature of those weapons facilitates that even more.
Big Guns are a close second, but are def. NOT dakka. Shooty, yes, Dakka, no. Your only ever getting 3 shots with them, and I think you need to at least put down double the number of units in bullets to be considered dakka. At least by me.
Grots ARE fun to try to shoot with. Something very satisfying about bringing down a SINGLE SPACE MARINE with 20 pebble-shooters. And never underestimate sluggas. Once, I had a single slugga nob take a single slugga shot at a terminator that was just barely hanging out of cover. All the other nobs didn't have line of sight. That one shot totally took the termy down. I imagine I hit a gasline... Or shot a rock above them and made a landslide.
I guess sarcasm works, but I do find it awesome to kill supposedly strong units with the crappiest gun in 40K (That I've seen). As an Ork player, I find few things as funny as putting on a big production, rolling a ton of die, shootin' alot of bullets at a squad, etc... with the end result of just one guy falling over at the end.
In other grot news, I enjoyed using my warphead to deepstrike a bunch of Gretchen right behind my Space Marine friend's lines and then swarming his command squad with a ton of little green vermin. They even managed to bring down one of them and injure his captain.
1. Lootas - #1 choice!
2. Shokk attack gun - Far from dakka but quite blasty.
3. 'Ard boyz - There is no reason for them, as they are best used for a warboss's bodyguard if you can't afford Nobz.
4. Lobba, kannon, zapp gun - Again, more blasty than dakka.
You forgot shoota boyz! A naked mob of at least 20 will blast targets apart.
From your poll, the lootas are the only dakka choice.

It has to be warbikes;
assault 3 twin-linked.
That means 36 shots twin linked every round for a full squad of 12, no rolling, just move and shoot, then assault.
3 full squads means 108 twin-linked shots every round.
If that aint shooty I'll eat my grotz shorts.
'cause red ones go faster
