L-STAR needs a slight nerf

[ Edited ]
★★★ Pro

L-STAR as a normal loot pool weapon is perfect but it a little overpowered. Maybe the best close ranged weapon in the game ignoring the broken Peacekeeper.

 

The L-STAR can shoot 25 bullets before overheating or you can tap it to keep shooting it without overheating or reloading.

 

The problem is people be spraying it and I cannot see with the BIG RED ORBS flying in my direction. The muzzle flash gets me killed or the person using it killed. Not only that but 18 damage for a spray hipfire blinding weapon is broken. The Sprifire and Devotion hipfire doesn't blind players as you can still see and shoot them back.

 

L-STAR could use changes like:

 

Lowering the damage down to 16 might be helpful as well.

Agreed , the muzzle flash on the L-Star is way too much. It makes it near on impossible to see your target and for the user to see theirs, making gunfights a spray fest.

 

Obviously if this is intended and deals more damage because of it then reducing muzzle flash will also need to be paired with reduced damage.

@Leo_the_Lion25 I agree! I think they should just make it look like energy ammo does, or at least, tone down the brightness of the shots a ton! Seriously, that and the charge rifle with their unnecessarily bright shots have turned my enemies invisible when I'm looking right at them!

@Robo_The_Man-Bot @Leo_the_Lion25 @Garlannnd  thanks for the tip, I'll have to remember that when I'm next spraying my enemies with my LstarLarge smile

Funnily enough, first match this evening I was lucky enough to pick up an Lstar and a Sentinel and loads of energy ammo. To cut a long story short, lost a squaddie on the way, 4 kills, small circle, jumped a barrier and mowed down the last 2 of the remaining squad with the Lstar. Finished Kill leader with 6 kills... Champion squad. Lovely.

 

I use a 2 or 3 hcog sight with the LStar to give it much more accuracy up close, 3 this evening!

I just dropped 6 kills and 1600 damage with the wingman and L-Star combo. What I did was land 2-3 shots off my wingman and switched to the L-Star spraying them without a thought of overheating lol. 

 

Good loadout for kill grinding.

@OldTreeCreeper Another, very OP trick you can try is crouch walking as Rev and hip firing with the L-Star, it tightens the spray like crazy and you're crouch walking fast enough that the enemies hardly ever hit you. I crushed a purple armor dude doing that early game (all I had was white armor), plus they don't hear you, so they're not prepared when they come around the corner!

Agree, bump. Fire rate is way over done. you cant see crap when the round are coming in.

Agreed, way too high powered for a starting weapon

@GarlannndYou don't need to see your target. this gun is way OP its basically a spray and pray gun that completely shreds through any armor close quarters. If they decreased the muzzle flash this gun would be the most powerful close/mid range gun in the game. It needs to be nerfed honestly. I don't understand why they take the devotion and make it a care package weapon only and make this thing one of the most common guns to pick up, low use rate? Same reason they buffed the living * out of Gibraltar? It honestly ruins the game because it takes no skill to use it.
