Steam and gamespy are both Jackquelegs

I'm in the process of finding random sniper rifles. I think the most zoom I have is ..2.4x

Here's some of my new stuff of today. Gave out a killer SMG to DH today, as well as a crapshoot of orange bulldog shotguns.

Arrow more loot

Nice to see the high end Combustion Hellfire comes with a scope. I got one that is almost a joke: no scope and a rate of fire 2.6. Even with the low fire rate it really hurts. With a Siren's elemental bonuses it is guaranteed to light someone on fire and even Brutes will go down in a dozen shots.





I am really happy to find the SMG ammo regeneration. It almost regenerates faster than I can shoot so no more ammo issues for me.

I'd love to find a sniper rifle that regenerates ammo, lol. 108 isn't enough with the fancy one you found me that does a 5 burst when scoped (its my new fav for bosses btw nothing like 5x headshots with elemental explosions). hehe

Yeah, i've got one really nice masher thats 100-something x7 in a burst, 2 shot magazine.

Nice rifle there jackquelegs, but the acc. on that one must make it tough to get crits from a distance. There's one i have that's @ 98.9 acc. (only 1x zoom tho) but you pretty much can't miss with it, hehe.

high accuracy and power are not hard to find, but zoom is.

I have plenty of super-powered rifles that are 1.0x zoom or 2.4xzoom. This is the highest zoom I have.

I find that if you specialize in one weapon type you can enjoy all the benefits of the reload speed, accuracy, and recoil reductions. For combat rifles you can have both close range and long range capabilities since there are 2 types that can make your fights easier. The three round burst fire variant usually has 70-90 accuracy and a 1.4x scope. Those with 8+ rate of fire, higher ammo capacity, and lower accuracy can be great in close encounters.

Just go all out and fill your weapon slots with a weapon type and eventually you'll be getting some great bonuses in proficiency.

Faye is lvl 50 now and her SMG skill is 32. I wonder if this game suffers from the usual problem of high ROF weapons balance with low ROF weapons.

What is your level Combat Rifle skill?
