Buff Acid Launcher

Buff Acid Launcher

★★★★ Novice

This ability needs a rework. 

Currently it has 10 shots. Slow projectile speed. Very small, if any, AOE. Very hard to prime, aka low acid effect status. Hard to aim with its arc. The damage is pretty good, but RPMs are low. The MW perk is awesome, +200% combo damage is insane, but the ability rarely primes lol. 


To improve it, do something like this:

1. Make it more of an acid cloud shooter. Similar to the flame thrower. 

2. Add a lot of splash damage AOE to the acid globs. Could leave pools of acid on the floor.

3. Greatly increase projectile speed.

4. Make it actually prime in 2 or 3 shots. 

5. Add lock on

I actually find it as as an extremely balanced ability. AOE trash you get the awesome 200% combo damage buff. Fighting something with more HP it rewards you with another way to prime, and apply acid. Granted you have to hit with all 10 canisters.

Always happy to see feedback and ideas on the forums! Thank you for posting.

It is best used as a close range ability. Mine hits weakpoints for about 10k per charge which is pretty good consistent damage and if you get one with a lot of recharges, it can keep a boss primed for long enough.
