THE RPG ~VENT~ THREAD

ATLAS-ZATLAS-Z Member Posts: 4,667
So many RPG threads I'm losing track. This is my weak ass attempt to try and consolidate. Some might avoid it on principal, but I hope not.

My opinion, as a level 68 endgamer, is that the legendary RPG is just a novelty and has almost no actual usefulness in the endgame.

Its many flaws heavily outweigh is one and only benefit (no body shot on central target), making it a display case toy.

I've proposed making the central target an auto crit, basically a Hunter charged attack, with traits to support this. Others have suggested adding secondary burn. I'd love to see both, I don't think it would be over powered even then.

Glad to hear your thoughts...

    Maybe if it was 100% guaranteed burn, otherwise you're still better off using a traditional incendiary rifle. Don't you think?

    Yes after gaining tokens the last couple months it is very disappointing. I would suggest adding stun or get rid of the reload wait time. I also like the incideary function. Either of those would be nice. It just seems like more of a novelty item at this point. Especially not having a charge feature really makes it seem like it is missing a trait!

    Yeah it just feels like they were so cautious to not make it absolutely overpowered that they ruined a great concept.

    They can't change the fact that overwatch/retaliate/revenge don't work. Taking away the 2 turn reload would certainly make it overpowered. Built in incendiary a la the flaming crossbow would be a nice touch which might tip the scales a little.

    I would prefer 100% fire damage to the target center as part of the functionality.


    They could simply take away the "crit chance" trait that is on the weapon currently and change it to Ignite 50% chance. Leaving the lucky trait crit damage is fine with me.

    Just that simple single change alone will make the weapon at least be useful for a very long time. Even if they upgraded council - just adding any fire damage chance either 100% or 50% would make the weapon amazing and useable.

    100% burn + the current nobody shot functionality = awesome forever!
    For example, the distance map with the Fattie you could just use ANY hunter that can equip the RPG and kite the mob around for 10 turns. It will make the weapon practically useful and never go obsolete.


    But yea- If the burn is not 100%. Putting it on the functionality might not be a good because functionality doesn't get effected by the lucky trait. So if they're going to do any sort of fire burning % less than 100 chance. Then it should be an actual trait on the weapon so Lucky Trait can apply.

    Flaming Crossbow has 40% ignite chance on functionality but LUCKY trait can't affect it sadly making the flaming crossbow not as great as a regular hunter rolled with a 50% ignite.

    How about stun+ burn??

    Hells yes! Stun could be bodyshot dependant, like a bruiser, except on central target.

    Mmmmhhnmmm

    I've always thought that the rpg should have a blast radius equal to grenadiers instead of the reckonin, also when you explode a grenadier the surrounding walkers burn, why didn't they implement this in the rpg? I hope they'll realise how much they've let people down with this and rework it and give everyone a free replacement.
    What does NG think @Kaz?

    It will be interesting to see how the RPG does on Sunday with the "No Body Shots." It actually may be the only day it becomes somewhat useful assuming it was fully upgraded. I just got mine today and I'm not spending gold to rush upgrade it. :neutral:

    This thing should wipe out all 9 of the targets its whole purpose of being a RPG is to destroy all in its path.

    It should do at least one more level tier higher damage with the downtime, as it is you never make up the lost damage from the reload turn. The one good thing about it is the shape of the AOE. If it had the present damage and no reload turn, I’d use it on a second hunter. As it stands I’m not sure I’m even going to upgrade the legendary one, the rare was totally useless.

    I opened the forum after a few days. When I saw the post, I thought it was about role playing game. Then I remembered that its the rocket propelled grenade we have working our ass all the summer. I would be keeping it as a souvenir as I already have quite a few upgraded hunter weapons. Perhaps NG should list to the suggestions of @ShadowaceAz to make it useful. The suggestions are

    1.Center Target = Critical hit & Burning
    2. Ring Target = No Bodyshot & % Chance Burning
    3. Path of RPG = Recieves 65% of RPG Damage from the rocket exhaust

    Can not believe how utterly disappointing the RPG is. All that time wasted for one of the worst weapons in my inventory. I cannot even use it for the novelty value. Every time i do it just pisses me off how incredibly useless it is. All the hype for what?

    I try to be pretty positive most of the time but can't fully this time. On 1 hand the extra rewards along the way was incredible for just playing as usual. On the other hand the Devs really dropped the ball on the RPG stats. How can you even think this would be an enjoyable experience for players?
