Guys… I might have found something!
I made this really quickly right now, just to do some little showcase of my findings, so pardon the low video quality and the low gameplay quality xD
I want to share with you my findings in detail though…
I’ve been going through almost aaaaall the diffrent guns I still had availabe to me to see if anything comes up… and INDEED I found some guns that actually work really well with the clone now (maybe also did before, but as you can see it works quite well now anyways)
what you did not see in this video, and what I was talking earlier about is actually the night flyer (this is also the reason for the weird shield I used ^^)
if you and the clone both uses the night flyer, while also having spect into “trick of the light” one of you will not be focused… so if you shoot the same target as the clone, the enemys will melt in a seconds (because night flyer damage is insane) and then you trigger the kill with either schock from the skill, the shield drone, or your SNTL drone… or grenades… so you have actually many ways to bypass the downside. this is pretty fun and fast ^^ maybe Ill do another video about it.
but what I also found and showcased in this video is that “secondary” explosions on guns seem to be unaffected by any damage penalty the clone suffers…
so the duc does insane damage, I dont know if you can see but it hit from anywhere from 8k, 20k, up to 40k at one point so it is really really good.
and then there is the scourge, and for whatever reason, when the clone fires it, it travels REALLY slow… and that is actually PRETTY benefical, since the big rocket will constantly spawn these tiny homing rockets around it which do like 8k each, so one rocket fired does easily do 50-80k. and since it reloads after every shot, the clone uses it quite well, because if he is good at soemthing it is reloading! (you might want to get a fire one too, I sadly didn’t pay much attention to it before to notice its greatness!)
also the Hive works pretty good on the clone too, it does less damage than the scourge but covers a whole map with rocket and is better for shields.
so yeah, these 4 guns are pretty nice now! but -bullet damage, or - non elemtal really really hurts and basically insta kills this strategie… thats why the good ol’ crossroads and cutsman are still here, and as you can see even with -50% corrosion the cutsman still shreds…
so yeah… let me know what you think, and what you find in the future.
For now I think we can safely say, that Zane’s double Barrel build might actually be decent now!
this is the first time I managed to clear a trial in 5 minutes on mayhem 3 with zane using a double barrel build btw.
obviously its sad that only like 6 weapons are a viable option to use but for now that is all we have, and its a dim light at the end of the tunnel for zane my friends
