Ineffective weapons are, ironically bolter is in the right spot now imo, but 2 most standout examples, XGII and power sword missing breakpoints, before having +20/25% flak armor on power swords were very important because that enables one light attack headshot dreg assaulter + one heavy sweep scab assaulter, now you can’t. Before XGII could one shot headshot scab/dreg shotgunners and gunners at medium ranges, now with all range dmg, weak spot dmg, elite dmg buff ticked, you can only one shot head shot them beyond medium range, even then it’s not reliable on the scab gunners because you have aim at center of it’s face, one inch off to the helmet hitbox, no kill.
I suggest remove medium to close range dmg debuff on all lasguns and increase their fire rate slightly across the board, and add power sword breakpoints back in. Now in terms of all the rest lesser variants and types of weapons, similar things can be done to increase the fluidity and responsiveness, dmg now seems not be the issue for this patch as many weapons ranged or melee got good increase.
I mean why waste the money on labor cost to make so many variants just so ppl end up only using one or two right?
