Better exilus weapons slot

Recommended Posts

Seriously, why don't DE make the exilus slot useful by let us put mods that aren't damage related on the exislus slot? in the 90% of the weapons exilus slot is used to put ammo mutation or vigilante supply for the critical bonus. there are a lot of mods that cannot be used because they reduce the power of the weapon like "Primed Firestorm" or mod that increase reload speed just because DE has not taken the work to make the exilus slot really useful. There are a lot of weapons that are not broken like the meta weapons but they are still more fun to use like the kuva ogre with the napalm mod or the Zakti prime, which would be better if they let us put mods like the ones that increase the blast radius on exilus adapters.

Primed Firestorm is a great example of a very good but conditional power increase.  Since it's largely a horde game, on a lot of weapons it's totally worth a regular slot.    On smaller radius weapons it's harder to justify, but that's better addressed through changing how blast radius mods work, or adding new flat radius mods, or by tweaking individual weapon stats.

Reload...I'll admit there are some weapons I'd put a reload exilus on where it would be more a QoL benefit.  But the fact is, there are a few weapons where it would be a big dps increase, the most obvious examples being single shot weapons like Tonkor and Exergis, where reload is  effectively RoF.

Given melee weapons get the stance that adds a load of extra mod points, the least DE could do is improve the exilus slot, or even put 2 there - and yes ammo manipulation is a good QoL that's needed for guns that melee does not suffer from, so maybe 3 or even 4 exilus slots would help mitigate this disparity.

Or a new primary/secondary "stance" type slot for features to help your playstyle, be it holster speed, ammo mutation, range extension, reload speed or even magazine capacity. We're supposed to be making primary and secondary weapons great again, but the recent buff seems more like a wet lettuce.
