Favorite Beam?

Throughout the series there have been several beams, and to me, that's one of the more fun things about the series. I love collecting all the beams, especially when they're stackable.

So...what's your favorite, and why?

There are only 10 poll options, so I only listed 9 beams, with an option for OTHER at the end. If you choose OTHER, please explain which beam is your favorite.

I've always loved the ice beam. What's better than freezing things and then blowing them into little pieces with your missiles?

Ha!

I, myself, prefer the Plasma Beam. Ice is a very close second.

Ice and plasma are cool and all, but I love Hypermode in Corruption, using the PED to make the screen go black and white and you just destroy the crap out of everything.

Other than that, yeah, Ice Beam.
Super effective against Dragons, Grass, and Metroids

Plasma, cause it leads to some fun enemy fighting. I love using the XRay visor with the Plasma beam and just one shot everything.

You forgot the Power Beam from the first one. Rapid Fire gets the job done fast.
Then Wave Beam.

I didn't "forget" anything. There's a limited amount of poll options I can have; that's why I reserved the last one for OTHER.

And the Power Beam is the weakest of the beams, and most certainly does not get the job done fast. Is there another reason it's your favorite?

Wave Beam is an interesting choice.

It's rapid fire and precision. I kind of hate how the wave beam zigzags but it's another good one. And then I unlocked ice but it's too slow. Especially with those annoying darn flying space pirates. I still like the game so far though.
