I’ve mentioned this in passing but feel as if it deserve a topic entirely of its own because of the popularity of the gun and the severity of the backlash.
1.) Stop. Breathe. Think for a moment.
2.) The magazine size being reduced to 1/1 makes it perfect for activating Duct Tape Mod reliably instead of using One Pump Chump which sometimes didn’t consume ammo and required precision to be anything besides a 25% chance DTM roll or Hellwalker (this is a direct upgrade to Hellwalker now for this purpose).
3.) Flakker still does tons of damage and if I assume correctly, will apply Cold Bore to all of the projectiles spawned, since it is your ONE next shot.
4.) Scale aoe/splash/shotgun damage if you want your Flakker to be even more powerful.
