i mean in v1, the “block while rezzing” was not intended either, but fatshark kept it and actually integrated it into v2. why can’t the rapid pistol firing be the same thing.
it was really useful because it staggers gas rat, fire rat, it 2 shots uhm… those big chaos guy (the one below cw, i think they’re called mauler or something).
it does more dmg than the charged attack and you can attack faster with it so you do far more dps to stuff that you can damage (enemies with no armour). so the charged attack still have a place (2 quick charged attack killes all sv types, including flame rat and rattling). pistol rapid fire definitely has its uses. but now it is gone. and i’m sad :c
i need to mention that having this rapid fire is definitely not over powered. because you really need to be in melee range and weave it with light attacks. its actual dps is indeed higher than just spamming charged attack, but it is not high dps. i guess what i’m saying is having this play style is not gonna suddently make every1 roll rapier over night. it’s not going to let people just faceroll everything.
