While I’m thinking about it… The important thing here is to warm it slowly and then be fairly targeted with the heat. Mine is hot enough to damage the board or chips and plastic housings. So keep it in motion.

I think any of them will work, but you need to be careful to not just heat a single place. Keep the gun in motion and then only touch the chip you care about. Adjacent parts will have their solder melt as well so you need to not touch them with your tweezers.
