Argoms Posted May 28, 2013 Share Posted May 28, 2013 When I first got them, I felt the kunai were OP. Having played with them a few days, I'm not sure if this was a knee jerk reaction (the last primary I'd been using had been bronco, which I hated) or a logical conclusion. So here are the numbers. DPS (theoretical) Pure damage per second, ignoring reloading. Assuming you had bottomless magazines, how much would you do: twin vipers: 400 afuris: 280 akbolto: 250 despair: 181.5 kunai: 148.5 lex: 77 Damage per pickup (ammo efficiency) The amount of damage done per pickup of pistol ammo. lex: 1400 despair: 1100 kunai: 900 akbolto: 500 twin vipers: 320 afuris: 280 Sustained dps (non-kunai numbers from thypari2013's old thread) damage per magazine/(time to empty mag + reload time) afuris: 158.1 twin vipers: 148.3 akbolto: 136.4 despair: 134.1 kunai: 109.8 lex: 53.81 ___ The kunai don't do more than any of the already existing dps guns. They are, however, 2-3x more ammo efficient. I think the ammo system in general is what really needs to be looked at. Primaries are even sillier- the gorgon, a light machine gun designed for sustained fire, carries the same amount of ammunition as the latron, a semi-automatic combat rifle.
