So, last night I was playing with a few buddies and having a blast as Cabot. Cabot’s rail gun is INCREDIBLY satisfying to use. However, at the end of a pair of 14-15 minute matches against Krakens, I had 18500ish and 20400ish damage done via the rail gun, with another 1500 damage amped. (I realize I was not using the damage amp to its potential. I had a Hyde on my team that was having difficulties getting within flamethrower range to attack Kraken. Thus I took it upon myself to do as much damage as possible.) I landed the vast majority of the shots I was aiming, and with Kraken’s BIG ASS HEAD, I got a lot of 2x multipliers on my shots.
I realize that these matches were a couple minutes longer than the average (12 minutes per match), but how do these numbers compare to your average assault? Is Cabot’s railgun perhaps a bit overtuned at the moment? What do you guys think? I haven’t been on the receiving end of a constant barrage of rail gun hits like this as the monster yet, but the Cabot’s I have played have been great at denying my eating due to the occasional rail gun harrass.
