1) Plasma Pistol: always a solid option, noob combo on other players, EMP the vehicle, etc.
2) Needler: two words - "satisfying kills"
3) Storm Rifle: this seems to be more effective than AR in CQC;
4) Carbine: a rapid fire precision weapon that is great in chaotic situations (aka: great at steal teammates' kills)
I've loved picking up the Storm Rifle in place of the Assault Rifle within Arena as it's a very deadly weapon. I think it rivals the SMG pretty equally in CQC TTK except it requires some tougher aiming on a strafing opponent -- it overheats pretty quick though.
Needler is another very powerful feeling weapon, but I've not been very effective with it thus far as I always seem to be either just out of range or a bit too close (the enemy has had a better CQC weapon in those cases which ends up taking me out fairly easily before I can get enough needles into them).
I've enjoyed using the Plasma Pistol when I have used it, but I haven't grabbed it nearly as often as I should have.
Not much of a fan of the Carbine; I prefer my Magnum over it and pretty much any other precision weapon.
The Boltshot on the other hand has been a weapon I've been pleasantly surprised with; though, it needs to be used within it's effective range. I love the lock-on bullets; to me they feel better than the needles within the Needler.
