I have been using a transformer shield a lot in BL3 and with various weapons. It just feels like the best bang for your buck in many cases. Most of the time a shock weapon doing splash damage can heal your shield. However, sometimes it doesn’t seem to work at all. Usually it works but at times it just doesn’t seem to fill up my shield at all.
I been using this in the DLC:
This gun has massive shock splash damage. Like 70-80% of the time if I’m standing next to an enemy the splash damage fills my shield as you would expect. Other times it seems to do absolutely nothing.
Does anyone know more about the interaction between splash damage and the transformer that can maybe explain what is going on? In the past I have assumed maybe other incoming damage was canceling it out but with this gun it just doesn’t appear that is what’s happening (like I notice it happening when no other incoming damage is happening that i can see).
