For Tower Control, weapons with good effective range (both in terms of distance and splash radius) are recommended as you will constantly be trying to pick off enemies on high ground. It is also a good idea to use weapons with Specials providing defensive utility such as Big Bubbler or Wave Breaker to help you secure the tower.
Finally, overall ease-of-use is also important, especially if a weapon can constantly produce good results when wielded by players across various skill levels.
