**NEW WEAPON** Discussion Topic: Absolver Beam

A bit off-topic but,
Personally, I just try to stick to this:


So just don’t overdo it.

Added to v.37

Other changes:

:bulb: Absolver changes: increased beam damage 250% (uncharged) to 200% (charged), one-off heat -25%, charging heat -50%.

New numeric stats:

The beam now does 250 (uncharged) to 6000 (fully-charged) damage at power level 0 (note that the charging progression is NOT linear – there’s a bonus for letting it charge for longer). At max power level (20) these values are multiplied by 4 (so 1000-24000).

Test it out in v.37 and let me know.

What does one-off heat mean?

The amount of heat it generates instantly as soon as you first press the fire button.

Folks, it’s been updated right here:
Early Access version 37

There is one thing that I forgot to mention. Continue holding the weapon to charge it, then pause the game. As soon as you resume, the weapon will fire indefinitely, because you don’t hold it anymore.

Another short mission with the buffed Absolver, this time in a Bomber too.

PSA: Absolver is now viable for Squawk Block, Supernova, Comet Chase, and even Boss Rush on SSH - I’d argue for Boss Rush and Comet Chase it’s able to hold its own against Utensil and Vulcan, respectively.

It’s still not great for Space Race or Dailies (and it never will be) because of its slow fire rate, and you can say bye to your medals of annihilation. Conversely, you will be getting meritorious marksmanship almost every wave you use it. :joy:

its so Overpowered! lowest difficulty Over 25,000 damage per shot

Even it has some limits, however.

Flash placement on hitbox is actually weird on large bosses. Would it be better to place it on center?

For the fully charged ones, multiple flashes are necessary like this:
