    guns are viable on gold.

    by guns I mean Mantis, Widow, Carnifex, Paladin, maybe a couple of the shotguns I dunno haven't played with them much.

    and by viable I mean, after removing their sheilds/barriers with overload/energy drain.

    Are guns viable on Gold yet

    man what your black widows and valiants and geth plasma shotguns rival biotic explosion spam for effectiveness on gold

    what they need to do is boost tech powers (except shield drain and overload)

    On the one hand a boost to frag/inferno grenade numbers.

    On the other is that sync kill stuff talking about the Atlas OHK ability?

    If you don't shoot your gun on gold you ain't doin it right.

    Barring some situations like you're pinned down by a geth prime or the like obviously.

    kind of amusing they boosted the power of backfire a little

    oh boy

    300 damage

    that is three fifths the damage of an incinerate, with only ten times the cooldown

    there's an exploit that lets people play gold wave 10 without playing the prior waves

    probably trying to tone that down

    It'll also make pubbing a bit better, since I can usually get through wave six but wave ten with pubs on gold is kinda painful.

    I'd imagine their tracking showed them a lot of people lose on waves 6-9 and figured they'd throw a bone to people who can't quite make it all the way to wave 10

    you'd think they could make its cooldown different based on what target it hits

    like give it a long cooldown if you hit a synthetic but a short one if it just hits a dude

    kind of like how (IIRC) biotics in ME2 have really fast cooldowns if you miss

    it seems to me like the main benefit of the arc pistol is setting off tech bursts, so the encumberance buff is more useful than the damage

    like I don't have one but it seems like the strategy would be overload then arc pistol in rapid succession

    What's the deal with 'Arc Pistol setting off tech bursts'?

    Because I was netting people and then shooting them and no dice.

    ·
  • Day of the BearDay of the Bear The Qun demandsRegistered User regular
    The problem with that theory is that a stiff breeze will set off a tech burst, so you're better using a real gun and just letting your tech stuff detonate from other people's incidental powers.

    Especially since it's pretty trivial to get a carnifex to 200% recharge on anything built as a caster

    hurricane is always from the hip, because you can compensate for the kickback easier

    if you can keep it trained on something it does okay damage, but I'm not a fan

    the Evisc X is half the weight of the Wraith I

    it's good

    but you need to be an opponent's face to see it really shine

    I favor it on my Quarian infiltrator

    or certain vanguard builds (ones focused on shield/health boosts over melee damage)

    the problem with the wraith is that the idea of a stronger, lighter eviscerator with fewer shots is actually pretty appealing

    but since the eviscerator is rather common and the wraith is bound to be at level shit, the eviscerator ends up being lighter and not that much less stronger, with more shots
