According to the Cryotra wiki:
"Increasing the Cryotra’s Fire Rate with Mods such as Speed Trigger or Shred also increases its status chance."
"Increasing or decreasing Fire Rate, Reload Speed, and Magazine Capacity has no impact on beam duration nor delay between beam firings; it always fires the beam for 4 seconds, then reloads for 4 seconds, before firing again."
I found this post:
I decided to try this and it's actually pretty fun, though I think I will use Radiation / Viral or perhaps the suggested Gas / Cold.
However, I'm really unsure as to what mods I should use. As mentioned by the wiki listing above, Fire Rate, Reload Speed, and Magazine Capacity seem to not work. And as this is a Sentinel weapon, the damage is basically non-existent. So... what should I put on the thing? I've been messing with it to try out this build, but all I actually have on the weapon is Thermite Rounds, Rime Rounds, and Speed Trigger. What else should I really use considering how it seems to be kind of heavily bugged (or... perhaps it's intentional that it fires for four seconds then stops for four seconds?).
