Dymetreus Posted June 25, 2014 Share Posted June 25, 2014 (edited) For those of you who were interested in why I'm not touching the Braton, that's because it has a Prime version that is available to the public. This topic shall be about the Lato, Aklato, Skana, and Dual Skana. For whatever reason, the Aklato was nerfed, and while by no means was it a late game gun, it still had the potential to use in most missions which you didn't plan on going past level 30 enemies. Now however that is even a stretch, without a catalyst or a lot of formas. I realize these weapons are supposed to be STARTERS, meaning that they aren't really meant to get you far. Do you know what I have to say to that? Fine! Then let's make a 'upgraded' version of said weapons. No, not prime weapons, but they should be balanced with the other non-primed weapons. I realize that this could be a touchy subject, as there are prime weapons of at least the Lato, and Skana for the Founders. So if the buff is about as good to the point it's a bit terrifying, then perhaps DE should buff up the Founder weapons as well. My suggestion is that you can purchase/make an item which, 'upgrades' said weapon. There should be one for each starter other then the MK1-Braton, as it has a decent upgrade which is the Braton. (and to boot an available prime version) When you apply said item to one of the following weapons, it resets their level, and along with any formas or catalyst they might've applied. (just like a making a dual weapon) Then, this creates a better version of said weapon. Looks is all debatable, and personally I like the look and feel of the Lato/Aklato already. But with that in mind, the Aklato shouldn't be a direct upgrade of the Lato, especially once upgraded. They should give two different styles of play, the Lato more steady and precise, and the Aklato more gunslinger-like. Skana more about single target damage, while the dual skana more for AoE, that type of deal. That's basically it, because while I could tell how much damage they should do and what stats, I'd first like to see people's opinions on if this were to go through, what style of play should each one fill in their opinions. ------------------ If you want more inside information on why I'm suggesting this, there's a couple of reasons. One is because I always loved the Aklato, loved it more then any weapon. It felt right when it shot, giving a bit of a backlash animation, and a beautiful sound effect to go with. My second reason is that as said by DE, EVERY weapon should be a viable choice. Should I be forced to give up a weapon I loved at the beginning because it so happened to be my favorite? A starter and thus it shall never even become half as good as other weapons? Am I truly being forced to use other weapons, simply because any Vandal or Primed versions are no longer available? I'm no newbie, but I happened to come to Warframe at a bad time considering my favorite weapon happened to be the Aklato and Lato. I even loved my Braton, luckily though there is a Prime version of that. (to which I own and am proud of still ^^) Edited June 25, 2014 by Dymetreus Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
