:S still don't why

 

Okay okay I'll actually answer.

 

Gorgon: High sustained dps. Good base damage. Long wind up, but shoots pretty fast at its peak. Very slow reload. Uses normal bullets, so has no armor ignore. Low crit chance. Low crit damage. Extremely bad accuracy.

 

Soma: High sustained dps. Very low base damage. Much faster wind up than Gorgon. Faster reload speed. No armor ignore. But....VERY high crit chance and VERY high crit damage. Extremely high accuracy.

 

On paper they both seem viable. But Soma destroys Gorgon due to its far better accuracy and extremely high crit chance/damage. Any mods you put on Soma damage-wise end up doing even more damage than Gorgon simply because the extremely high crit chance and damage multiplies it even more.

 

Frankly, all you need for Soma to be powerful early game is crit based mods and armor piercing. You wont even need elementals or Serration until later. Gorgon however...not so much. You have to fill it to the brim with mods for it to match Soma's high crit based damage.

 

 

 

Damnit I was going to make this joke.

 

It took me over 1000 posts...but I finally Tenno'd someone.

 

Feels good.
