tl;dr: You CANNOT get a non-elemental, non-Sober Wrath.
A while back, I posed a question in this thread about the possibility of a non-elemental, non-Sober “Wrath” sniper rifle (specifically S&S).
Basically, my theory was this:
- The Wrath title requires a tech level of 7.
- S&S mat3 gives +2 tech, barrel4: +2 tech, PPZ body5: +1 tech, sight3: +1 tech, stock3: +1 tech.
- Total = 2 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 7
- Therefore, a gun with these specific parts could be a Wrath, leaving it’s accessory slot open for stat boosting parts like the Deep or Brisk accessories (while utilizing the damage boost granted by the Wrath title).
(EDIT: It’s important to note here: the Thunder/Driver title only has a 2.0 priority, so it would never override Wrath)
For comparison, here’s a legitimate Sober accessory Wrath, also with a total of 7 tech:
mat3 + barrel4 + Sober acc + body5 + sight1 + stock 1 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 0 + 0 = 7
Now here’s the theoretical Deep Wrath, with its Thunder counterpart:
As you can see, the Wrath title gives a significant damage boost.
My curiosity finally got the best of me, and I decided to make something which would spawn large amounts of S&S snipers. I was literally up to my neck in guns:
until, 8000+ guns later, I finally got at least the non-accessory version of what I was looking for:
As you can see, it did not get the Wrath title. This makes no sense, as it meets all the requirements for the title.
However, this gun has no accessory. Maybe it doesn’t meet the rarity requirement of the Wrath title?
So I spawned S&S snipers which were constrained to ONLY the necessary parts, to see if Brisk and Deep versions suffered the same fate:
Yup, still Thunders. So no Deep/Brisk Wraths are possible.
To try and figure out why this is, I copied over all the necessary stuff to a new package, and edited the first requirement out of the Wrath title (Weapon Rarity):
Then I set the tech level requirement to just 1. Now ANY barrel4 semi-auto sniper should be a Wrath, as it already has at least 2 tech, right?:
Nope, STILL not a Wrath. Something is wrong here.
As a final straw, I edited barrel4’s tech boost to +99:
Not a Wrath, even with over 100 overall tech and a tech level requirement of 1. It did, however, spawn as a Wrath when I set the tech requirement to 0, so at least we can be sure that that requirement is where it fails.
My theory: In order to qualify for the Wrath title, the gun MUST have an accessory which boosts tech, along with the overall tech level requirements. This is why a Sober sniper of equal tech level can have the Wrath title while the version in question cannot. Sober gives +2 tech, and Deep/Brisk give no tech boost.
