Request: an armor use for the Firestorm mod
« on: March 25, 2012, 20:28 »

I slaughtered my way through Hell's Armory, downed the Shambler, and saw that the main reward was a Firestorm mod.  This made me very sad as I was on a melee run.  Could we please have an armor assembly which incorporates this mod?  Or perhaps make it useful on armor all by itself?  I'm thinking something like +10% all resistances.  okaythanksbye

Actually it would be great to have more armor assemblies for the exotic mods, simply because all builds can use armor but some builds don't use that specific weapon assembly. Like there's no firestorm shotgun, for example, meaning that my Armory reward might be useless to me on AoSh.

Edit: small beans, considering that it is a roguelike after all. But it would be really nice to be able to pop on a firestorm mod and have it do something, like maybe add an additional shot to the shotgun?

There is no firestorm pistol as well, I guess.

But you need Whizkid for that. I am talking about making mod usable in case of Whizkid-less builds.

It's true. Just allowing F to be used on shottys and pistols would be nice. Doesn't have to be ultra fancy, even something like a power mod effect would be nice.

Agreed - just somewhere to dump the thing! :D

Speaking of which, what is demolition ammo supposed to do? I don't understand the wiki.

It turns 10mm ammo into explosive 1-radius ammo. So your demo pistol will make a little boom each shot.

Exotics and uniques are not always going to be useful for every run they show up on, though. Seeing a firestorm on melee is just as annoying as getting nothing but plasma and shotgun exotic/uniques on AoMk, and it's just as much part of the game. I do think that exotic/unique assemblies need to use less nano though. I've seen that fucking thing once, if that wasn't a fevered hallucination, but never again afterward. I'm this close to deciding it's mythical and that people just pretend it still exists to screw with casual players like me. =P

Speaking of uniques one can't use; can we make it so after we've picked up uniques they lose their super-invulnerability to being hurled into lava or acid? Nothing is more annoying than trying to spite the RNG by destroying useless uniques only to find out they can't be destroyed for some reason, unlike everything else.

I'm all for making mods more useful and building on recent engine additions. Letting Firestorm mods 'harden' armor would be kinda neat, and maybe sniper mods could add a sort of 'ghillie suit' effect by adding dodge%. In the end, it's all subject to balance, and we don't need everything to always be useful...

I am not sure why you would ever do this when it is completely possible to make a firestorm-modded demolition minigun.

Or just because you don't have minigun?
Also, demolition minigun is a joke.You just blow enemies away in different directions instead of killing them.
One shot,one boom,targeting again works better.
