Maybe I’m too spoilt to see the goodness of the omni cannon for Aurelia. Anyways, the top section is full, but we can squeeze it into the honorable mentions. Maybe it’ll even push the Fremington out of the Top Gear and take its place.
Gotta do some more testing.
From what I see, it does around 50% of its card damage as explosion on hit, but the explosion can’t crit. When hitting crits on frozen targets, the explosive damage is tripled while the NE crit damage gets the 200% crit boost, resulting in
dmg = base dmg * 2 * 4 + base dmg * 0.5 * 3 = base dmg * 9.5 ≈ 520k (lvl 70)
before skills, gear, luneshine and BAR.
In comparison, a Muckamuck would just get the 200% frozen crit boost.
dmg = base dmg * 2 * 4.6 ≈ 546k
On a per shot basis, the damage is pretty close. My biggest problem with the Omni cannon is its slow fire rate and reload speed. This gives you less time to react to missed shots or larger groups of enemies.
On a different note, I’ve begun recording short showcase vids for some of the items on that list. Everyone please feel free to contribute. If possible, have your BAR off in your vid and start cold (i.e. no prestacking anything). Thanks, looking forward!
I’ve rearranged the shotgun section, mainly I put the Striker into the Honorable mentions, because its mag size can be lowered to zero by LC, thus making it unable to fire.
In its stead, I’ve put the Flayer into the top section, with the Coach gun as its alternative.
Everyone ok with that?
