Mercenary Day is here, and along with it another weapon to play around with:
This is a level 28 Ol’Painful which can be obtained from the new miniboss - Odjurymir, a Iwajira replacement.
It seems that the Ol’Painful has either a 100% drop rate or a very high one, as I got it first try, and first try again, but with a different character.
Without further ado, the stats of a level 28 variant (because it was gotten in NVHM) are as followed:
The parts of the weapon seem to be fixed as the gun has no prefix on it.
Come on in… Ol’ Painful is waiting. - All bullet shots are lasers, but still consume assault rifle ammo.
Now, despite how awesome this gun sounds, on NVHM it’s not that great as damage is around 130, with DoT with about 33:
(Difficult to see, but trust me it’s 131.)
The vladof barrel makes the fire rate insanely fast, meaning you’ll run through your ammo fast, especially because of that high mag.
Stock up on Assault Rifle SDUs if you haven’t already.
Overall, this assault rifle is very hit or miss, but it can still deal pretty decent damage for the level this one is at and because its got a pretty high drop rate, we’ll let this slide. The Ol’Painful is recommended for any player but not for a long time, don’t store this in one of your 4 arsenal slots for a long time, a few levels at most.
