    Even better at outpost raids, stuns for two turns with wide range of attack. Works on defenders and shreds walkers.

    It's definitely a good weapon. I think a lot of people were hesitant as it has piercing and creates a lot of threat, but it does shine in many maps. The possibility to place the target and that it hits around corners makes it better than the golden assault rifle on many occasions - without making the golden rifle obsolete. So great work, NG!

    Yeah it's really fun and I'm enjoying using it. I think sometimes what works well at 40+ in the challenge overrides what is fun to use in the other game modes.

    i tried it with abe, get bodyshot point with sasha, but it doesn't work with sasha....? why?
    i think its of no use then,.
    only can be used for scavenges or outpost....

    What assault (and traits) is everyone giving this weapon to? I keep going between an purely offensive assault to my standard defensive assault and it just doesnt quite feel right on either.

    I really think I’ll mainly be scavenging with it. I’ll take golden assault rifle all day over this.

    Scavenging with it is pretty sweet though and I have it on my offensive Abe. 3 damage 3 CD badges.

    All scavenge all day! I just get a thrill from it. :grin:

    Plus, I prefer the extra threat. Makes it easier to ramp up the spawn.

    Something I was thinking about its mechanic, though.... I will post about in its own thread. :wink:

    Agreed. I think it would need the increased damage and charge damage in place of concussion to be best in class for an offensive assault and piercing replaced by lucky to be optimal for a defensive assault.

    But that's strictly to make it viable at high level in the challenge.

    I would scavenge with it but still use LMG on gov since it does way more damage. oh well...

    hmm, when sasha is in lead, u get a charge point for a bodyshot ok, i gave the launcher to abe in distance mode vs lvl 41 walkers, but abe didnt get any charge point from the bodyshot attacks, so in that perspective this aint good weapon to work with sashas lt....

    I use it on Scavenge Missions and Outpost Raids and I love it! If you put Hilltop Maggie in the lead in Outposts, it’s awesome to get an extra grenade attack on special walkers and humans. It’s not a Phased Plasma Rifle in the 40-Watt Range, but it’s just as fun! :sunglasses:

    Just used it on an outpost raid. No flash/bang like there is when scavenging.

    Edited to say, the flash/bang seems to depend on the outpost map.

    +1 for scavenging. With the Decimator on the Governor in lead and Maggie tagging along with the Festive Shotgun--both wearing Training Gear--I'm making bank on scavenge missions, especially on this Tomato Monday.

    It does most certainly work so I think you just had bad luck. Note however that it has piercing, so 30% of the hits won't be bodyshots and therefore can't ramp up charge points.

    Great Weapon , I Gave it Rosita and she Kicks Ass 😃

    I didn't get a screen print to show this, but I just used the Decimator on an outpost raid and found that a blast that occurred outside the outpost wall damaged a defender inside. Great weapon!

    I love using the Decimator, especially on Through the wire.. the advantage it has over the golden assault riffle is that it hits a lot of targets while maintaining a safer distance for my assaults amd the walkers.. I also agree that it is great for scavenging, gave it to Gov (badged with dmg and dr) and he kills all walkers without problem.

    Can’t wait for the version with lucky in place of piercing ( @Fluxxx ).
