I saw a few Fustercluck clips on YouTube and K6 and Moxsy said that with this gun we should rather use the impact and not the sticky. I was really confused, because I had one good drop of the gun before I watched the videos and I had the feeling that the impact mode does way less damage.
No skill points, no gear what buffs the gun and no mayhem level active:
Picture 1 is the impact mode. 216k damage
Picture 2is sticky mode. 43k + 3x29k = 130K damage
Picture 3is sticky mode reload explosion. 3x70k + 3x52k = 366K damage
130k + 366k = 496k
Not only the damage is more than doubled the sticky mode shoots way faster AND I believe that the stickys can proc mind sweeper! Not the reload explosion but the 3 29k procs in picture 2.
What do you guys think? I just played a bit with the gun and have the feeling that sticky mode is much much more effective than impact mode.
