In summary I found the new effect the least exciting on paper when you read it, no alt firing modes, no legs when you throw it, no shields or dual elements. If you crit you get a single extra bullet to reflect to a new enemy. However its quite perfect for Jakobs IMO. Jakobs are crit based guns that like playing Zer0 or Aurelia reward skillful play. This really fits that play style. These are not spray and pray guns, they are precision guns.
Why I say most satisfying is a bit biased because I love Jakobs and these felt so Jakobs. They are still one shot per trigger pull, you can still fan the hammer, they still hit really hard. They still feel very Jakobs. But with the new look and new sound they feel stronger and more robust.
The only shotgun I got was a crappy white one with a back pack full of blues and purples, so I didn’t really get to see how they turned out.
One thing I saw after the Video is K6 put out a video where he found a red text Jakobs sniper that had a really cool effect. It had a NE splash added to it on impact and instead of 1 bullet reflecting, it had 3. If you combine that with Aurelia’s new chain reaction we might see some pretty interesting combos.
