Seox Posted October 1, 2014 Share Posted October 1, 2014 (edited) Hello, all While the tiberon represents a new weapon with new stats, I feel that the weapon this week could have been something far more interesting. I LOVE the aesthetic. This is a very different spin on tenno weapons as the previous ones have been more elegant and not quite as "solid" and rugged as this one was. When I first used it, I really expected something nice and heavy, but was once again greeted with a high-pitched "PEWPEWPEW." I'm astounded by the number of weapons in the game that sound light/medium and feel like the tiberon is just a reskinned burston given that most weapons are wholly adequate for most of the game's content. Exacerbating things is the 2.5% status chance and 5% crit chance - the gun can only be built one way, really. This makes for a rehashed, repackaged, one dimensional jump right back into more of the same. This could have been the game's first DMR/heavy semiautomatic rifle, LMG, or a tenno ricochet rifle, or any number of other interesting weapons, and I feel that the opportunity was a bit wasted because this just feels like more of what we've already seen. To be clear, this isn't about stats. The weapon seems great with respect to that. This is about flavor, and I feel that the tiberon sorely lacks in this regard. Thoughts?
