Just to point out, unless I'm reading this wrong, Opticor Vandal is... strange You get 2 firerate but the damage goes from:
Puncture: (Normal) 850 to 240 (vandal)
Slash: (Normal) 50, to 80 (Vandal)
Impact: (Normal) 100, to 40 (Vandal)
Yeah, the weapon has higher status, slightly higher crit/crit damage, faster reload and that but why on Earth would I want to grind tediously for a Vandal weapon (Which are supposed to be an upgrade.) Which has far less damage than the normal counterpart?
EDIT: Yeah I just noticed the charge rate. Pretty sure I could just slap on Vile Acceleration on Opticor and still have more damage either way?
EDIT EDIT: So I thought about it a bit. Maybe it isn't too bad? It just seems a bit odd to me. I'll mess about with it and I guess we'll find out
