Phasic rounds bypass shield gate, and since we're talking platinum you should be using equipment anyways.


Wait What!?

Phasic rounds negate Shield Gating?! Since when?

I've heard it doesn't negate shield gate, it just gives a 10x multiplier against shields, so the shield damage is insane, therefore the 25% damage that gets through the shield gate is still decent damage.

Might bring out the old Widow X again now.

Or maybe BW some platinum :D

But that's awesome

phasic rounds bypass shield gate if 150% of the weapon damage is > the enemy's shields.

that said, seems like it would be difficult for a single shot sniper to top the charts if only platinum were considered...(edit : awaiting corrections from code K...)

Black Widow is the best by faaaaaaaaaaar.

Javelin and Valiant are good too.
