Speed-Enhancing Mod for Shotguns

Recommended Posts

I'd really like an option for increasing sprint speed while equipping shotguns. Once I unlocked Amalgam Serration on my PS4 account, I virtually stopped using shotguns altogether, because it meant giving up the 25% speed boost from this rifle mod. And on my PC account, I'm not planning any big investment of Forma into a shotgun for similar reasons.

It wouldn't have to be a direct equivalent, and probably shouldn't be Amalgam Point Blank, since we already have Primed Point Blank. How about, instead, combining a hefty reload speed buff with increased sprint speed? This would also provide a nice alternative to Chilling Reload, which is a poor fit for the preferred damage type on many builds.

And I don't see that becoming a balance issue, either, since piling on multiple reload speed buffs generally yields diminishing returns, as opposed to instant reloads.

Excellent idea.  

But if it followed the same pattern as the other amalgam weapon class mods, it would be Amalgam Tactical Pump at 25% reload.  Which is...not that great, especially on builds already benefitting from Chilling Reload.  I'd suggest combining this with a buff to Tactical Pump.  Maybe to 45%, putting the Amalgam version at 40%, and still leaving room for a future Primed Tactical P. 

(As an aside, most non-exilus reload mods could use a look over and  buff.)

Or we just hold out for Amalgam Primed Point Blank sprint bonus. 🙃
