Question for someone who uses an infinity.

#1doughnutmanPosted 8/25/2013 9:17:42 AM
Why...? Why use an infinity when there are other pistols with higher damage output, and considering the horizontal spread of bullets to make the pattern, out of like 16 bullets, wouldn't you only hit something like 4 or 5 times out of like 16. Why use it? Even with something like one shot one kill it only increases it by 60% which isn't really even that much. A 30K pistol would just go to about 48k damage, in which you're still missing probably half your shots unless you're super up close. So... why? Or am I missing something.

Best use of them IMO:

x2 infinities on a gunzerker with Evil monk class mod for +6 moneyshot (9 moneyshot total). I saw a friend drop a level 61 Warrior in like 20 seconds

...money shot doesnt work with infinity due to it requiring 10 bullets at least in the mag to work properly.

That's cute that you guys laugh at my comment. You all obviously do not know how moneyshot works.
you get % based on your clip size, to a MAXIMUM of at least 10 in a clip. At level 5, that's 40% min, UP TO 400% for a clip of at least 10. Anything higher is moot.
CLIP SIZE:
1=40%, 2=80%, 3=120%, 4=160%, 5=200%, 6=240%, 7=280%, 8=320%, 9=360%, 10+=400%

So at level 5 an infinity has a chance to do +40% per shot, even higher with an Evil Monk mod bringing it up to 9 moneyshot. I've seen it in use.

I'm glad that I could shed some light on your ignorant little brains.

This skill does not work on single-shot weapons, Infinity pistols, or rocket launchers. It also does not work on grenade or rocket rifles such as the Grenadier or Cannon, even though the sound effect still plays.

how many times are people going to ask this same question? for god sakes. why do you care??

and if you are using an infinity on zer0, it isnt just the OSOK bonus that makes it usable. its that combined with the fire rate from the disturbed stalker class mod, combined with the constant %110 damage bonus that comes from 11/5 rising shot, combined with even more fire rate and pistol damage from the sheriff's badge

gee, that over %300 base damage a shot of constant DPS with an extremely high fire rate that never has to reload.

its a more than usable combo on a correctly specced assassin. is it the end all be all weapon? certainly not. but it is more than usable

i get being annoyed by people doing nothing but the infinibee combo. its annoying, boring and takes little to no skill, but a standard infinity can make a very useful item in the arsenal of a gun wielding assassin
