Tarille Posted June 25, 2014 Share Posted June 25, 2014 I'm curious about what kind of setups people like to run. Most people like different things from weapons and I've seen some crazy mod setups (Mostly on Youtube videos that "Try" to tell people the best mod setups for weapons... A lot of them are utter garbage that try and fail horribly at maxing DPS with no utility) There are also different weapons that people like to run that maybe aren't the frequently mention "God Tier" weapons So here we are. A nice place to show off the setup you like to run (Maybe for different things) that may allow you to find some new interesting builds to try and possibly some unconventional weapons that have niche builds that could be fun. My go-to setup for pretty much everything (Except high level defence... There's some limitations that prevent that) Valkyr - Steel Charge is currently just for the additional mod points until it's fixed to actually do anything for Hysteria (Outside the current bug where occasionally you'll just use your melee weapon in Hysteria rather than the Claws) - Same for Intensify, that's just there for when Hysteria gets affected by it again (If it never does, then I guess I'll Forma that V slot into a D for Sure Footed or maybe a - for Handspring?) As far as abilities go, I was aiming for Short duration Hysteria, to allow for hyper aggressive play to bring me to low health with the ability to jump into Hysteria for healing without then being locked into 30+ seconds of forced melee mode. It doesn't take very long to fully heal in Hysteria (Usually a ground finisher will do the trick, what with finishers ignoring armour and doing high damage) Soma - Yeah, yeah "Noob Soma user QQ". I like the weapon, it feels nice to use. It's accurate, it has a nice fire rate that can vary depending on how long the trigger is held and crits feel nice to get. As far as elementals go, I chose Corrosive because it's very neutral (I'm lazy when it comes down to swapping elements per faction) and Cold because it's cheaper than the other elements (Otherwise I'd have probably gone for Heat for another neutral element) so doesn't require an extra Forma. Also, perfect elements for Void. Akstiletto - Why Concussion Rounds over Lethal Torrent? Well... Despite LT giving higher average damage per shot, higher average chance to cause status per shot and higher DPS overall with the increased fire rate... I just don't like how the weapon feels with the additional fire rate. It becomes more difficult to do the single shots that most lower level enemies require and it's also more difficult to be accurate at longer ranges too. Why Heat damage over Radiation? Because I prefer Heat Damage for damage output... It's more neutral and I don't like swapping elements per faction. Also, I'm not a huge fan of Radiation procs on weapons I'm intending to try and kill with. That said, I'd probably use Radiation if I had access to Jolt because the extra 9% status chance per bullet would be nice (Would then swap Concussion Rounds for Convulsion). On a similar note, once the Cold dual stat mods comes around, I'd likely replace Ice Storm to get more status chance (Incidentally, more Cold damage too) Why not Tysis if going for Status secondary? I prefer how the Akstiletto's work. Being full auto, hit scan and of course the physical damage procs can be fun too (Stagger from Impact, damage reduction from Puncture and Bleed from Slash) Dakra Prime - Again, elemental mods for neutral damage types (Heat was also chosen because of looks... Fits better with my colour schemes) - Crit mods because Hysteria benefits from it. No Spoiled Strike because Crimson Dervish is quite slow and also Coptering is nice (Crit chance doesn't justify Berserker to compensate) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
