I’ve been trying the weapon and loving it.
While I’m not complaining about the block-push feature (it doesn’t hurt) I’m not really seeing the point of it: it resets your reloading process and so (since the shooting process itself is very fast) i don’t really get why I would not just swap to melee. If you can’t shoot or reload it, having it out seems a bit useless to me. Am I missin something?
Can it block boss slams like shields do? Should it?
As a 3 shield weapon without its own block cost reduction I think that’d be a good addition without being totally OP, but maybe I’m missing something. What do you think?
EDIT: I think it would be nice if this particular weapon could block ratling fire and bosses’ slams.
You could get a bit more use out of it, and the lack of additional stamina-BCR talents would prevent abuse.
