And kills with the Kerblaster don't count towards the assault rifle challenges in the BAR- go figure...

Yeah I guess they were kinda like mini explosions but the damned gun is a pistol the game should say non elemental pistol. but then again I think if you use an elemental pistol it counts. just not spikes or rockets. I think even explosive pistols count. just pistols with hidden explosive capabilities dont.

It might count the type of damage that killed the enemy over the type of gun you used. If the spiker pistol you used doesn't have an element assigned to it, it's a glitched weapon and is considered explosive damage.

What's the purpose in owning a Grenade Launcher?
The sheer inability to continue life without it ! ! !

Spiker pistols should never count. NEVER

I hate so many things about what you choose to be.

It's because the damage done by Spikers is completely splash damage. With the way that splash damage is calculated, kills with a Spiker will almost always count as a grenade kill rather than a pistol kill.
