Dr.Membrane Posted December 20, 2022 Share Posted December 20, 2022 (edited) On the occasion of the new pistol skins from Nora I felt the need to Forma and Re-roll my beloved handgun LEX (PRIME) again, but in the process i must determine again how crazy over-punished the LEX still is. I understand that LEX was mend to be this slow and hard hitting headshot "desert eagle" kind of gun, but today it's sadly outdated and can't compete with the fast pace gameplay any more. The LEX has overall an ok´ish amount of Status, Crit Chance and base damage, but this small advantages come unjustifiably with overwhelmingly high Reload time, a low Magazinsize, very high Recoil and a very slow Firerate. Its extremely hard to mod this gun accordingly to counter all this hard flaws equally, which comes with the cost of DPS. But if you don't counter or only partly counter this flaws and only Mod for damage, the DPS still remains mediocre. No matter how you turn it... this gun never feels satisfying to use without Warframe buffs like from Harrow. PS: The new Nora Skin from rank 15 is a real nice Colt, its absolute eye candy <3. I mean you could argue that i now can shape any better performing Pistol into a LEX now... but that feels like a poor excuse. The Lex deserves to be a terrifying choice again. So pls DE give the LEX some love, it has such an amazing Design and brutal sound, it would be a shame to be just a guilt pleasure sidearm.
