Weapon quirks, bugs or features?

Post by Zetoss » Wed, 7. Dec 16, 20:11

Been wondering about these for a while. First, is the Heavy Laser supposed to build up extreme heat every single time you activate it? Sustained fire makes the heat crawl slowly enough that you can use it like any other weapon but tap it exactly five times for a split second each and it is over heated and unusable. I can't figure out how that could possibly be a bug and if it is just how it could possibly not have been fixed long ago, so I have just assumed it's a terrible feature but it's murder on my wrist when mining so I just have to ask to confirm.

Second, is the Particle Repeater only supposed to have mods for super increasing fire rate and never a bad one lowering it? All weapons look like they have nicely distributed nerfs across mods to keep things interesting but in all the time I've played since weapon mods were introduced I've not seen a single instance of this particular kind. I could have just randomly not seen one obviously but after seeing weapon mods for various repeaters by the hundreds and never a single one like that I just started to wonder. :P

Also sorry for filling up the forum all by myself, looks like not many players are still messing around with XR these days.

I think it's WA (currently) D that it builds up 25% heat with every click; however this may change in the next patch

Guess my fears seem to be just about confirmed then, I can get the idea behind almost all odd design quirks I've seen in the game to date except that laser heat, I mean why in the world would a laser weapon work like that...

Oh my! Hadn't seen that part of the wiki, last I checked the wiki was rather empty in general so I stopped even looking there. :P Anyway thanks for the link, I probably just happened to get the same result 200 times in a row but with stats like that it's not statistically impossible so probably no issue behind it then.
