My name is Stardrone and in this topic I will show you a new weapon concept: The Unstable rifle.
In order to do this I asked to a brand new Recluit to test the weapon for me.
Say Hello to Gimmy!
According to its description that UHF released;
This weapon is still in an early developement phase and it is 0.07% safe to use.
Still a promising number… right?
However, despite having a rapid overheat time, this weapon can deal massive damage in mere seconds both to single targets or multiple enemies.
That’s because this weapon changes its behavour while in overdrive: it can shift from a rapid-fire minigun with homing bullets into an explosive bullet storm!
The 0.07% is just a little comedy in the description. I hope this is clear now
Even upgrade levels increases number of projectiles
Odd upgrade levels increase fire rate
In addition levels 3,6,9,11 reduce overheat time and levels 2,5,8,11 increase overdrive AOE damage
At level 20 bullets becomes faster and (if is a balanced thing) gets more damage
I expect this weapon to be an high-skill cap weapon that can be useful manily in boss rushes and some epic waves.
But not in every wave due to its inability into dealing long-term damage.
In addition to that, now that overdrive is a thing I think that a shapeshifter weapon may be a good adition to the roster.
This is how a power 11 Unstable rifle may look like:
