spent 10 hours straight grinding out the new Flak Mod from Loco, by far the easiest farm in the game, after getting around 60 of them I found 3 that where the kinda stats I wanted ( 25% damage, 31% action cooldown or 31% pistols 10 % jacobs etc )
The trouble is, as much as the theory of constantly increasing damage sounds so enticing, and ignoring how broken it is at the moment ( only kinetic or cryo and no items that add damage other than one cryo allowed, no aoe either ) it’s simply not very practical in anything other than a boss fight, on M4 where you have badasses and anointed in every direction just one shot missed and bam, no bonuses
I found it better to use the bounty hunter mod, with the same perks, and spec heavily into decent damage buff kill skills
Same with a rakattack build, but by far the most usefull part of that is the abilty to constantly proc the 50% damage buff x 2 of two different elements from your shield and nade perks
I’m desperately trying to get a Rakpak mod, but they are so ridiculously hard to find one, never mind grind out 60 to get a decent one, it’s only the Proving grounds Cunning, the worst one by a million feking miles, final boss or Wotan , a four-man raid both being done solo on a 3% drop rate, this is truly pathetic
why is it the new mods can be found on any mayhem level, yet the rakpak is M4 only in two stupid locations?
will say one more thing, went back onto Zane last night my original Main, if you think life is hard on flak, fek me, Zane on m4 other than a couple of set specs, with set items played in a set way is punishing
