Innocent_Flower Posted June 25, 2014 Share Posted June 25, 2014 Game as it is currently: slap on best serration, multishot and then as many elemental damage mods as possible. This sucks because; 1- The average weapon in a high level game has two completely different elemental damages (at least one is a combination damage) Basicaly everyone has rainbow guns and if everyone has rainbow guns then no particular colour is special. 2- physical projectile weapons are doing more damage with elements than physical projectiles. 3- Physical damage mods, for rifles they are useless and for pistols they are inferior. 4- Physical damage mods don't work on purely elemental damage weapons. The other way round works; But not this. Why? It should be fine. Explosives are often made with projectiles being the primary feature and the first ever use of guns came from an evolution of flamethrowers with shrapnel. So To rememdy all of this I'm thinking... Elemental damage mods and phyisical damage mods (impact,puncture,slash) convert damage rather than add it. Meaning If I have a gun that does 100 physical damage; My 40% cold mod should turn that into 60 physical damage and 40 cold damage. Different weapons have different limits on how much you can convert. Projectile weapons can change 70% of their damage to a different type of physical damage whilst only 40% of their damage can become elemental. (that's just a starting ecample) whilst pure elemental damage weapons (phage, ignis) can convert 100% of thier element but only have 50% physical (this is all just wild guesses. I fully expect different values to come in after much experimentation) If you go over the limit with mods then all additional conversion doesn't happen beyond the limits. Introduce - Mod to seperate elements and have them distributed amongst bullets randomly. Also; Each element should affect bullet trails... Because that'd be cool, right ? You wouldn't be able to do that with the current system because there are too many elements on each weapon. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
