The Vintage Heat Sink augmentation is labeled as a Gun Behavior augmentation, but the game treats it like a Special augmentation.


I can develop a weapon with both the Vintage Heat Sink and the Plasma Charge System.  (Both are labeled as Gun Behavior)

But I can't develop a weapon with a Vintage Heat Sink and any Special augmentation.

Bumping this.  Was trying to use a Vintage Heat Sink (Gun Behavior) with a Shield Oscillator (Special) and the VHS locks out the SO and vice versa, but not the Plasma Charge System (Gun Behavior).


Running PC Super Deluxe digital.

Yep, I noticed this problem too, good to know it's not only me seeing it. Hopefully they correct the Vintage Heat Sink to actually be treated like a "Gun Behavior" aug like the description, so we can pair it with Special augs.

Looking forward to this getting fixed, but will have fun with the odd combos until then anyway. Infinite charged seeking plasma sniper shots are a blast (pun intended)

Same thing happening here when attempting to get a black widow with vintage heat sink and shield oscillator.

Am running the digital download on xbox one.

Bump. This can't be that hard to fix, it's probably just changing one line in the augment's file. I really wanted to make a gun with a Vintage Heatsink and a Power Booster :'(
