Supra Is Not The Only Old Weapon That Needed A Buff.

maybe stop trying to push it into the highest levels of the game?

Wait, what am I supposed to do with it, then? I mean obviously you are telling me not to kill things with it. Should I hit it with my $&*^? I know pre-endgame enemies will die if I hit them with my $&*^, because of how little health they have. Maybe Burston Prime will die if I hit it with my $&*^.

4 forma flux rifle

 

Note: with continuous weapons, the damage can actually have ticks alot lower, or alot higher than the listed damage. i can get individual damage ticks of 500+ with this build against grineer on headshots.

Now the problem isn't these weapons being "underpowered", the problem is you attempting to use them against enemies or levels of enemy that the weapon is not designed for. the weapons you listed can all be used comfortably anywhere on the star chart, minus survival missions past a certain level. 

 

The only weapon you have a point with is the ignis, but only if you mean foolishly attempting to down enemies one at a time with it, which is not what it is made for. it can hit unlimited enemies in its range, so equal damage spread across a very large amount of enemies means more damage and crowd control than single shot weapons. it is still a bit low, but then again, if they buff the ignis, get ready for hell because scorch enemies will have theirs buffed as well.

*Disclaimer: I suck at shooting and miss ....also I do not claim to have the best loadout build for each of these weapons...if needed I can provide the builds I did use for these tests

I don't think the Miter is in a particularly horrible place, to be honest. It has a lot going for it in the proc & hallway suppression department. But! Something that bugs the hell out of me, and has been like it for as long as I can remember, is the projectile profile on charged shots being bullet-like rather than disc-like. So you've actually got siginificantly less chance of grazing/hitting targets with a charged shot. I can't imagine this being intentional, as it just makes no sense.

 

The Embolist could really use something though, that's for sure. Considering the rigmarole to acquire the thing. Just a bit of ammo efficiency/supply and range increase would work wonders, I think.

I'm seeing all this, "Buff Burston Prime!" and am wondering what's wrong with it.

I've never had problems using it when it first came out.

Didn't have problems using it before I left WF 8 months ago.

I still don't have problems using it now. (I've actually used it so much, I'm trying to expand my horizons for fear of becoming bored with it)

 

If Burston Prime gets any sort of tweak, it should be on the Syndicate mod. That extra RoF doesn't actually effect much. It should've been a 200% crit chance or +10 status.

 

So with all this being said, I have a question for those requesting it to be buffed:

What build(s) are you using, and against what enemies?

I'd like to compare to see if maybe I'm bias, or if there really is nothing wrong with the Burston Prime.

 

EDIT: I also believe the Sicarus Prime is in a good place.
