First of all welcome back.

 

Second : it's hard to suggest any weaponry if we don't know your mastery rank. Acrid is decent now ( IMO ), but not what it used to be. I'll give my own oppinion on what weapons are good, and you can check them out on youtube if you'd like ; 

 

Primaries : 

 

-Boltor Prime

 

-Soma

 

-Penta

 

-Ogris

 

================

Secondaries : 

 

-Dex Furis ( birthday gift, not obtainable anymore )

 

-Acrid

 

-Brakk ( G3 farming, obtainable ingame now )

 

-Despair, Hikou, Kunai are all 3 solid and pretty good

 

-Marelok 

 

-Stug

===================

Melee : 

 

-Dragon Nikana ( mastery 8 )

 

-Dual Ichors

 

-Glaive Prime

 

-Orthos Prime

 

 

 

 

Just my personal oppinion and my own weapons so I've tested them all on the list. The melees are with stances, so might not be as enjoyable without them.

To add to the list:

 

Crit damage was changed so a headshot that crits gets an extra 2x multiplier. Seems to be a bug (ie isnt metioned in any patch notes) but its been persistent over a few major patches now. 

 

Synapse is still top Corrosive/Rad DPS, and got a significant boost from the above mechanic.

 

Akbolto got a buff a while back, slitting it into god tier with the stuff Rancid mentioned. Especially if you have a click macro/scroll bind.

 

Castanas are a fairly new release, they do decent dps with a trigger like the penta, and do excellent crowd control with a 100% shock chance.

 

Amphis got a nice buff with melee 2.0, my fav weapon for coptering and AoE attacking.

Dakra Prime is the best longsword, Nami Skyla are the best dual swords and best slide attack weapon (300 base!).

 

Edit: Oh, how could I forget! Update 11 (IIRC) was Damage 2.0!

Basically you have to build per faction, only Grineer have armor, and there's no armor ignoring anymore, although certain elements will partially ignore armor. Damage/health scaling means you can kill stuff up to about lvl 50 without armor being too big of a deal, as compared to before. Elements now combine if you put 2 of them on one weapon, so no more rainbow builds, max elements is 2 (3 for innate combined elemental weapons). Elements now proc, at a rate determined by the weapons status chance, giving an effect as listed in the link. So no more putting cold on every weapon just to have a snare.
