Best Fibber since patch?

#1RitalinfiendPosted 4/17/2013 1:07:18 PM
I haven't played in months just got to the mission with the fibber reward. I read there was a patch that changed the fibber. Which one should I try for now?

Why was the Fibber patched/nerfed? That was before my time

Cool, so all redundant fibbers have the same shot spread?

Nope, Redundant is just the prefix referring to the 2 ammo consumption per shot.

The ideal is still the barrel with shots that ricochet and split into 9 pellets.

Perfect! So if I keep completing the quest, and resetting until I get the redundant ricochet, how long would it likely take? Is that combination super rare?

The Fibber that shoots "bouncy balls" is also very nice, as it has a stellar 700% bonus to critical damage.
Especially effective for Gunzerkers, since critical bonuses apply to both guns when zerking.

This is taking forever. What's a good second place to the redundant?

The version with the 9-shot spread is the one with insane damage.

The Redundant version of that is just twice as insane.

IMO it's probably worth it to just keep trying. I had to go through the reset BS when I was trying to get the six pellet Landscaper, now I'm glad I did (only really need it for recharging rockets).
