There are quite a few items in the game that debuff enemies, and I’m wondering which, if any, I should use. I’d love to hear your thoughts about which are the most effective and which stack well with each other. I’ve been playing around with a few of them and have got a sense of which seem ok, but I find it hard to figure out how the math actually stacks up. Between all the different elements my Amara deals and all the M2.0 particle effects, it’s nigh impossible to actually see many of the numbers that pop out of enemies. Here’s what I know and/or assume already:
Needlgun XXL: Not bad but I don’t believe it stacks at all with other weapons (ie. it increases damage vulnerability to the Needlegun XXL only). I’m confused about what its discarded throw does. It appears to do very little for me, though I read someone somewhere say that they were seeing it occasionally do 1M damage.
S3RV-80S-EXECUTE: seems pretty good. Debuff lasts 12 secs I believe, so you can do several in quick succession then switch to another gun and reap the benefits
It’s Piss: 20% debuff for 6 seconds I believe. Not bad. It’s a short duration, but since you can throw and shoot simultaneously, it’s easily the most convenient piece of debuff gear to use. And since grenades barely do any damage of their own anymore, it seems a good choice. I’d love to find one with a “weapon, action skill etc. damage increases 25% on grenade thrown” annointment, as that would basically be doubling (and some) its effectiveness. Can anyone confirm this?
Zheitsev’s Eruption: I haven’t got this so can’t test it. Is it worth farming for? Does its debuff stack with S3rv-80s-execute and/or It’s Piss?
Any others I’ve missed?
