Anyways, that's just my suggestion
my 5 cents ... IMHO crossbow > flamethrower > minigun
Crossbows are efficient - you can shoot from a safe distance, perfect for strike and retreat tactic. I prefer flamethrowers over miniguns - flamethrowers inflict damage to several foes, are efficient against a group esp. bees, exploding crabs and mages, don't affect John's movement speed too much. If I equip with a crossbow + flamethrower, my speed is 113%, with a crossbow + minigun, it's down to 108% with same addons combo. So miniguns are heavy, make you more static, you receive more damage from the bombers and have no damage penetration, you only strike the frontline.
