PeanutMonster Posted August 7, 2014 Share Posted August 7, 2014 We fight huge crowds of enemies in Warframe. Yet so many Tenno weapons in the clan research have small magazines and long reload speeds. It feels like to weapons were never designed for this game. Pyrana - 5-round magazine, 4,2 firing rate and a 2-second reload. This thing reloads more than shoots. Damage is nothing impressive compared to Bronco Prime or Brakk. Sybaris - Lever-action rifle (that alone makes this bad against crowds of enemies), 10 rounds per magazine but shoots 2 at a time. 2-second reload. At least this gun has high damage. Attica - Slow firing rate, low damage, 8 rounds per magazine and a goddamn 2,8-second reload. This is definitely one of the worst weapons in the whole game. Akstiletto - Looks nice on paper, but after you realize that every fully automatic dual wield weapon in the market are better than this, you never want to use these. For example, Akzani deals 30% more DPS than Akstiletto. Venka - Oh wait these still exist? I thought everybody forgot these because I haven't seen anybody using these after the first week of the release of Venka. Low damage with low crit damage and chance as well. The problem with thes could be easily fixed by buffing the crit chance to 25% Silva and Aegis - Even worse than Venka. A short sword with low damage, and a shield which gives no benefit to the wielder. (I know Silva and Aegis should be getting a buff sooner or later) Nikana - Mediocre melee weapon. Nikana can at least be upgraded into an absolute beast of a weapon, Dragon Nikana. Castanas - Nice damage, but the effort taken to deal it makes it pretty bad. With other weapons player can just aim and shoot. With these things you need to aim, shoot and time the explosion right. At least these have a tactical use as traps. Lastly, Tigris - I know this isn't a research weapon, but it shares the same problem with Sybaris, Attica and Pyrana: small magazine, long reload. You cannot fight crowds with this thing. Even with punch through mods, the spread is just too tight to make it deal damage to multiple enemies. It feels like these weapons were created to showoff the skills of the graphics team of DE, since these weapons truly look amazing. Too bad that nobody uses them because of the fact how bad they are. Most of these weapons have very low sustained DPS, because of the very long reload. We get thrown huge crowds of enemies at us in every single missions, but only couple of these weapons can efficiently get through those crowds.
