So I read this article on Forbes that covered elemental damage, and I think Paul needs to go back and experiment with elements again. I’ve been using numerous guns that deal radiation, and while I agree it is average on health and poor on armor, it’s DEFINITELY good on shields; almost as much as straight up shock damage. Shields deplete very easily when getting hit with Rad damage, and I’ve even tested it with my vladof anointed cryo gun that deals 50% rad damage for 2 mags on ASE. That gun in particular is great on armor, but when ththe anointed effect kicks in, it also becomes pretty damn good at burning out shields when it otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
With that said, am I the only one who thinks Radiation is a good alternative (maybe even better) than shock at burning shields?
