Nerf Longlas?

4

Hey there.

Ok, so I'm only about level 40 - but this build has been destroying all missions with zero challenge.

Is this how it's supposed to be? I've tried switching to Needler, Exitus and Regular Sniper rifles - and they just don't begin to compete with the damage of Prismatic Shot. That would have been ok - except, in this build, there's no Overheat - so it's pretty extreme.

Will this change later on - or is there really no challenge after this?

You're welcome. Let me know if you need any more details or thoughts regarding game balance.


I think the game has a ton of potential, you just need to polish out some rough edges - and, perhaps, do a bit more marketing!

Sounds good :)


I don't know if it's intentional - but the Tactical Mastery perk + Quick Draw passive (Ranged skill-tree) means that Overheat is reset upon weapon switching. So, you can just spam Prismatic Shot endlessly - destroying all enemies. The damage is 3x+ compared to the other AoE abilities on the other Sniper rifles.

That's a cool combo, for sure - but the Longlas is just much, much stronger than all the other Sniper rifles using this combination.


Perhaps tone down the damage - or adjust the Overheat mechanic? I think it would be unfortunate to take away the combo in itself - just tune the balance a little bit.

Of course, it might be more fun to boost the Exitus/Needler/Sniper rifles instead.

We are analyzing the feedback received after the 2.0 patch and naturally will balance those weapons which are too OP! Thanks for your feedback!
