Okay, my twelfth Rival finally coughed up the good stuff - an Experimental .50 cal!
My feedback request is - do nothing! I am willing to beg…
I have not had such fun in months as the next fifteen minutes with that weapon. I’ve heard that some flawed, sad and miserable individuals have asked you to nerf it. Don’t! Don’t listen. Do absolutely nothing. Rest comfortably on your laurels - oh my, you have earned it.
Well done! :)))
I feel like you’re referring to me.
And me. And my view on that weapon still stands.
Exp .50 cal is what regular .50 cal should have been
Oh dear, Simul, it wasn’t you, was it? Sorry! But I love it. In 15 minutes I love it forever. On the downside, it does make an awful bang, so will no doubt attract Trade - all a balance. For a solo like me, it’s a Godsend and I had to work really hard to get it.
You can always throw yours away!
Sorry! I’m in love, and we do say these intemperate things, us lovers…
Can we talk about how bloody loud that thing is?
Not firing it, just holding it and ADS!
Of course we can - that’s the downside. Everything in balance. For me it’s the answer to those bloody flechettes, and I adore that serious “hummmmm”…
That low, humming sound. I imagine the weapon’s warm to the touch, making all those journeys through snow-covered landscapes a little more pleasant
I wonder if enemies hear it, though. A friend of mine confirmed it can be heard by other players.
Sorry! I made that thread when I first got my hands on it, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I actually really like it!
The sound it makes when firing reminds me of a type of blaster from Star Wars, but I don’t know which one.
And as I’ve said before, it would be nice for the Devs to add a side mission to the game explaining these weapons.
Im looking forward to some downhill ski-Ing shooting ex50.Cal at a wild bears while being chased by Ski-runner robots
Oh, you 007, you…! Better yet, you old Roger Moore, you…
It finally happend! I’m so excited.
I finally got the exp .50 cal!
And I have to say… its like my wet dreams come true. It is exactly the punsh I always wanted for the regular gun. And that sound, omg that sound … a genius at avalanche studios took the sound of the Eraser move (with Arnold Schwarzenegger) and gave it to that gun . Btw put a X-Ray optic on it and you can actually play the Eraser gun from the movie.
It is soooooooo satisfying to finally get something that causes some real damage to kill those machines. Now I have a reason to use all the hundrets of .50 cal bullets have saved because I always hoped for a buff of the regular gun (about 920 guess what I will do in the next hours ).
And to give this fun to the players who are new to the game.
How? Just give the regular .50 cal a little bit of this bullet penetration (for example 0,5-1 m to penetrate a Hunter) And increas the damage a bit.
If you have the fear that everybody will only use this gun you could lower the ammo drop rate to compensate the buffs.
That’s my boy - I’m so proud!
Even the sound if you only hold that monster in your hands is awesome. And if you use your scope that electrical charging sound becomes louder. You dont even have to fire that beast to fear it
So new players can now get the ex50 from the first island totally making all the other weapon tiers redundant. Anyone else see a problem with this?
Well, the simplest solution would be to make it available only in the very North. Maybe in the South you only get the EX 9mm to be available. Mind you, I thought originally that there were no rivals in the first two islands - I’d be good with that.
