I’ve been mucking about with Gaige for a little while and I think I’ve found a gun that could be top gear material: The Veruc.
It’s horizontal spread is almost unchanged at around 150 Anarchy stacks, meaning that it’s great if you don’t want to invest in the OC tree much. At over 200 stacks, it is a bit less accurate, but it seems that the central bullet isn’t affected by the accuracy loss as much. It seems to be more or less on target, allowing for some impressive longshots at a high stack count without relying on Close Enough.
Speaking of CE, this skill takes care of the Veruc’s main weakness: the stray bullets that are produced at the beginning of each burst. This is benefitial, even when you don’t have any Anarchy stacks. The low accuracy loss and CE make this gun very usable at medium range with a good stack count.
Without any magasine size altering effects and with SLF, the gun stacks Anarchy reasonably fast as well. Just three and a half bursts, and reload. If you do have an increased mag size for this gun, it gets more use out of The Better Half. You can put out a ridiculous amount of bullets in a very short time with that skill active.
Simply put, The Veruc puts a lot of lead downrange and the low accuracy loss and CE make sure that most of those bullets actually hit the target. It’s my preferred AR on Gaige, right behind the Hail.
Anyway these are my opinions on the Veruc. Has anyone else used this gun with Gaige?
