1st - Inkbrush from Splatoon series.
2nd - Legion from Astral Chain.
3rd - Breakable Weapon Thrown Impacts from Zelda:BOTW.

The Inkbrush is the best cause it lets you go Kenshiro rapid-attacking with each lateral slash flicking out gobs of ink everywhere. Each battle the color of ink flicked out will be different. Unleashing numerous Legions (the bursting chain) in AC and the exploding impact of damaged thrown weapons in Zelda: BOTW are really cool and of a similar effect.

1. Kirkhammer (Bloodborne), baby. Accept no substitute.

2. Balrog (DMC5). "Ignite the flames... NOW!"

3. Laser (Nex Machina). *SHHHHH-ZYOOM-KRRRR*

4. Welder Block (Infinifactory). Witness absolute power.

I usually gravitate towards ranged options or something you can place on the field like traps, bombs, etc. Loved Lucifer in DMC4 and really like stuff in DMC5 like Cerberus lightning balls and some of the summoned sword options.

Can't remember much from this gen. Would have to look through my PS4 box.

1. Beasthunter Saif from Bloodborne

2. Hatchet from Wolfenstein 2: "There are a lot of things you can do with a hatchet and a Nazi"

3. Balrog from DMC 5, definitely the best iteration of the punch/kick weapons in the series.

Cool topic. Some off the top of my head: 

-Pizza cutter(Bloodborne)- Badass design, very solid all around weapon and had a great function that made it stick out from the rest of the game’s arsenal.
-Ballista(Doom Eternal)- This thing is always getting use, high damage, great way to pick off weakpoints quickly, swaps well with anything, and good mods. Plus it looks cool.
-IceCalibur(Bloodstained Curse of the Moon)- What is there to say here? Freezes any enemy for instant shatter, massive hitbox, double damage to bosses, etc. 
-Block dropper(Mega Man 11)- Making blocks fall on enemies is funny. 
-Warden Crossbow- Reasons I don’t need to mention...

Oef, hard question! I think Bloodborne's trick weapons really are the best new addition, my favourite being the Bloodletter, but generally speaking they are all really freak'n cool. Conceptually I love the bike from DMCV, but in execution I wish it had more to it and that we could ride it as his run button. Think the Gauss in Doom 2016 and its version in Eternal is also a great multipurpose weapon, like how it can be used for movement as well.

This topic also made me realize how little new games I've played this generation haha!

That's what got me as well. I'm having trouble coming up with anything that isn't an old PS3 game or remaster.

Lightning Cerberus immediately comes to mind but that's only one form and only the orb attack so not sure if it should count.

Warden Crossbow is a good one.

Please note how all four of us who mentioned Bloodborne's weapon system have a different favorite. There isn't really any "main" weapon per se, they're all valid and completely reliable in their own right.

Shows how polished and balanced the game is, really.

Bloodborne's weapons really were the star of the show. Liked each and every single one of them, and most also had some unique aspect to them like the Wheel's charging ability, the blood effect of the katana, how the change-attack of the saw has bonus damage to it - just so much little details. Also has one of the best campaigns and DLCs in recent memory. Glorious game.

My only wish is that there was an unlockable mode that allows you to choose what weapon you start out with.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention a few from Dark Souls 3. Primarily the Farron Greatsword; I bet you that this weapon was a prototype Bloodborne weapon that didn't make it in the game, because they couldn't find a way to connect a huge sword, and a tiny dagger together. Sliding around with this thing is a blast.

Same thing with the Ring Knight Paired Greatswords; You're dual-wielding huge greatswords, how much more video-gamey can we get here? These things are ridiculous, and I love them. Not to mention their crazy weapon art.

Dark Souls 3 had a few weapons that really felt like they were prototype Bloodborne weapons, and those 2 were the best of them.
