Honestly that sounds good to me. I haven’t played enough level 30 SS to get a good Power Sword to use on higher difficulties so I can’t speak on that, but since even the melee dregs have flak armored heads I think its the most important for a Kantrael. Edit: Oh, you said Recon lasgun! My bad, but I still think Flak is probably the most important, but I don’t think unarmored is the worst thing in tbe world, especially for a potential panic horde clear if neccesarily.
Also might want to change this to Power Sword, all the “Force” type weapons are Psyker weapons. It confused me for a second!
i played Veteran to 30 and like a week more, but its already 3 weeks ago or so So my tips arent that usefull maybe or correct, but i like the attempt in general.
Not sure about maniacs. I see your point for it, but look into Weapons detailed damage you can find in your wepaons screen - V was for looks and skins and another key is to see your weapons dmg breakdown.
Not sure what the weakness of the lasguns that you use are. So maybe push that or see if you can get over a breakpoint and make the weapon op versus something special like it is for flak already.
IIRC i had no problems killing muties and other specialists with a standard Kantrale MK XII.
This may be wrong but vs. carapace is somewhat wasted as i think you wont do much damage against it. For this you better use your Powersword.
Again, its from shallow memory and maybe wrong, but you can find out when you look into your weapons detailed damage and breakpoints and here is a link to Enmies HP on different difficulties to see what you need to do to kill them.
I hop it helps anyway.
The only enemy I can remember being unyielding is Bulwarks…its definitely not the worst trait in the world, since when you can shoot them in the back you usually can’t get headshots, so you need as much raw damage as possible against them. While certainly not the best perk, it’s not worthless so it sounds like you’ve found a really good recon las!
I haven’t bothered refining a Power Sword too much, they’re pretty strong no matter what Perks. Unarmored and Flak are probably not very important damage boosts for it. Weak Spot Damage might not be bad since it’s easy to headshot multiple targets in one swing.
TBH you’d probably be better served asking questions like this in the Vet section of the official Discord.
Weak spot damage is terrible. I’m pretty sure it only increases the weakspot bonus, not the total damage, meanwhile damage vs armour type is a multiplicative increase against that armour type. You almost always want 2 damage vs armour type perks. Flak and maniac are the most generally popular ones. Obviously carapace can be good for BPs on certain weapons. Infested can occasionally be useful if it lets you hit poxwalker one shot BPs.
Tox/Flamer, Trappers and Mutants have Maniac, in addition to the Dreg Rager. Maniac also seriously harms a lot of weapon types in general, but there are also some notable things. Like a grenade gauntlet with max pen/damage and +maniac damage can kill a Damnation Trapper in 1 headshot. Also Mutant is a tank, but takes 3X melee damage, so I’m sure tons of weapons save at least 2 swings depending on the damage.
