Tekrunner: Does Rolling Thunder synergy actually work?

9 years ago (March 31, 2014, 7:43 am)

Keep in mind that mag increases apply to base values. So if you have a rolling thunder SAW modded with a high cap mag III, it'll have 85 * (1 + 0.5 + 0.15) = 140 bullets in the mag.

No, accuracy does work on shotguns. Compare a rolling thunder shotgun modded with a scatter scope with the same, unmodded shotgun. There's a big difference in the size of the reticle. But a -0.5...

8 years ago (April 22, 2014, 4:13 am)

Thunder all the way, yes. More DPS than any other LMG, and more accuracy / less recoil than any of them as well. SAWs do hit harder crits, but with that awful recoil that's only good for something...

Could you look into the missing VOT Heavy Plasma Repeater as well? This was a sniper rifle, that was supposed to be in the Arkbreaker weapon pool, but we still don't have it in game.
