It already has shorter range lul
its how it should be , but BE decided otherwise, they want pistol to have shorter range + less damage
Pistols that are less effective than rifles :
-Plasma pistol for csm/lsm
-pockit rockit launcha
Pistols that have same damage as rifles :
-All bolt pistols
Pistols that dont have rifle equivalents :
-All others Ork pistols
Seeing the list it seems somewhat comprehensible to me.
idk why bolt pistols are untouched but whatever ...
Probably due to the nature of the projectile.
well the same rules should apply to every projectile type weapon then ..
The damage-decrease on Shuriken Pistols specifically can be reasoned by lore, they are also supposed to have a lower rate of fire. I would still like to have the full clip-size however, one look at both weapons should tell you, why.
As for Fusion Pistols, I dont know, if we know, what their damage actually was.
My assumption would be somewhere around 300dmg/clip, as Ive noticed when the beam remains on target the entire time, the damage was just sufficient to kill most JPA's, that would also be fairly consistent with other Pistols, at ~200dmg/sec.
If that assumption is true, damage would now be 225/clip, which I suppose makes sense on the assumption that the Fusion Pistol should behave to other Pistols like the Fusion Gun does to other Rifles.
I dont think I have to elaborate, how flawed that logic is.
Bolt Pistols are getting looked at as the pistol should not be the same base short range dmg as a bolt gun.
Quite possibly the latter, yeah. I'll have a look into that, cheers.
you should learn to read every posts
