i already own the brakk and yes i know its a godly but im still not that big of a fan of shotgun pistols. so what do you recommend for a new secondary? i like the acrid but the DoT isnt as good anymore on it but i would like to see changes to it but sometimes you cant get what you want.

 

what is a good secondary besides the brakk?( dont like hand shottys)

Sicarus prime is a "decent" weapon if you do not mind bust weapons.

Akvasto is one of the best sidearms.

 

Deadly accurate, deadly powerful.

I prefer the Dual Vastos, myself. Not exactly the ultra definition of power and destruction, but they do great damage, are accurate and have always served me well.

 

Twin Gremlins work too.

Despair is my go-to secondary for grineer/corpus/corrupted battles, Embolist for infested.

Despair

*Honorable mention to Twin Wraith Vipers. Built with Crit/Stat mods and a Pistol Ammo Mutation, they are great as long as you fire tap bursts (do not hold the trigger)

Twin gremlins too. Efficient against all enemies and fun to use.

I like the Wraipers. Very high damage and they're pretty fun to use.

Check out the Stug , according to dpsframe.com and imho 2nd best secondary after brakk. Also WTV are nice if you put some formas on them.

Despair.

 

If you like picking off enemies from afar, then Despair and Ballistica (yes, Ballistica) are very good options. Ballistica's projectiles are very fast and accurate, have no dropoff, and are perhaps the most reliable way of OHK'ing enemies past medium distance besides using Lanka or Miter (or Primed Chamber Vectis). It's a near-direct upgrade to Bows, with its ridiculously fast charge speed, near-nonexistent cooldown, and higher minimum, average, and maximum charged damage than what any Bow can accomplish.

 

Despair is much easier to use, infinitely better for crowd control, and an expert at mid-range combat, although it doesn't have quite the one-hit-kill-enemy-from-afar capabilities that Ballistica has (although, if you're good at angling, it can two-hit-kill-enemy-from-afar just as quickly).

Twin Gremlins get my vote.

Fun and effective.

Magnus!

 

ok, not the best in terms of DPS, but its got nice crit and status chance, and it's a magnum/revolver-type weapon like the vasto and lex, so it's strong. put some gas on it, and you can drop crowds of infested in one shot. the other factions don't have a major exploitable elemental weakness like that, I might change up my corpus loadout such that I have electricity alone, so I can get that chain lightning effect. viral is great against grineer, but I usually have corrosion on it for corrupted+grineer. the troubles of only having 3 loadouts. usually my primary will have viral when I go into a grineer mission, so that's fine

Stug is great. Until you lag-suicide 10 times in a row.
