Well sort of. Before that, using some specific things like mono weapons was a somewhat viable alternative (i know of some doggys who were terrified of my Penthesilea - i'm not sure the fear was totally justified, but at least there was a reason). Some other unusual weapons could be a thing too. Hey, even K1 combi were a thing, since it was exotic and they often had a bit of armor. Now, except ADHL, the best solution is the one everyone would already use for everything else: big burst weapons. And i'm not exactly fond of games where you can use a single solution for every problem, i prefer soft counters.
