The Bee + Sand Hawk for new best combo?

#1GujinKamiPosted 11/20/2012 10:00:11 AM
Sand Hawk fires 7 shots at once, and if they said they're only fixing the pellet spread on Shotguns, you have each bullet doing 200k+ damage per shot.

y/n?

With the way people whine, I feel as if this is the accurate solution. We should only ever deal one point of damage.

And I'm going to guess there's better combos than the Sandhawk-but I didn't like the Sandhawk, so I could be biased.

Going off the assumption that the patch notes are cross-platform, all I can find is this:

- Amplify damage from Amplify Shields is now divided among all projectiles fired from a single shot.

- Balance adjustments to “The Bee”:
- Increased Recharge Delay
- Significantly increased Recharge Rate
- Reduced Amplify damage

So if this is true, wouldn't this mean that all multishot weapons be "balanced" in the same way?

If so, I'm going Shredifier...dat fire rate. Is there anything with higher than that? I've seen it top out at ~14.4.

I'm pretty sure they will balance out all multi-shot weapons. Otherwise I think the Slagga will would be a great alternative. Not as many "shots" as the Sand Hawk but plenty of firerate to make up for it.

I think that post-nerf, ROF is the way to go. But the Shredifier takes time to warm up too much and it caps at 14.4 but in most combat situations, you won't be able to get up to this.

I have found a few purple/blue Vladof rifles that get over 10 ROF without the "spinning" warm up time. I think this might be the way to go. At least for my playstyle.

Infinity can get 10, and superior damage. Sheriff's badge for damage increase and 50%+ fire rate increase.

Thanks!

I have a vladof pistol with 12.8ROF, anarchy or something it's purple. With the sheriffs badge it's ridiculous but you're out of ammo in record time.

I wouldn't be surprised if it could match the purple/E-tech Vladaf pistols, and get to a 12ish ROF. I'm not sure what a max Sheriff's is, mine's 22/56/15.
