Ranged Weapons include all types of firearms and several laser-based ranged Weapons. All ranged weapons except Explosive Weapons consume Ammunition during use. The Soldier class specializes in using ranged weapons, with their signature skill Debilitating Shots making enemies vulnerable to more damage once hit by their ranged attacks. Ranged weapons are categorized into 5 subclasses: Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Pistols, Sniper Rifles, and Explosive Weapons.
Assault Rifles[editar | editar código-fonte]
Assault Rifles are weapons that are well-balanced and versatile, mostly having medium to high Fire Rate, good Accuracy and Reload Speed, and good damage at medium range. These weapons suit many combat situations and are well suited for Soldiers to apply their Vulnerability debuff.
Types of Assault Rifles include:
Shotguns[editar | editar código-fonte]
Shotguns are specialised for close range, due to how their damage is spread in a cone-shaped AoE instead of focused on a single target. Most of them have a very high burst damage at short range while sacrificing Fire Rate, Magazine Size, and Reload Speed, though some maintain more of a balance between stats to enable continuous damage.
Types of Shotguns include:
Pistols[editar | editar código-fonte]
Pistols are non-specialized weapons which have great variations in their stats among different pistol types. Some have a higher Fire Rate with easier operation, similar to Assault Rifles, while others are slower but precise and pack a big punch, similar to Sniper Rifles.
Types of Pistols include:
Sniper Rifles[editar | editar código-fonte]
Sniper Rifles are precision firearms with high damage and very high accuracy. The scoped types allow the player to zoom and hit far-away targets with ease, making this weapon type best suited for long range. As a downside, most of them have a lower Fire Rate, Magazine Size, and Reload Speed, making them less suitable for handling multiple targets at medium and short range.
Types of Sniper Rifles include:
Explosive Weapons[editar | editar código-fonte]
Explosive weapons deal explosive AoE damage where they are shot. They are unique among firearms, in the sense that they do not consume actual ammunition, but instead consume a large amount of durability with each use, making them relatively expensive and balancing out their massive long-range burst damage capability, though this is somewhat counteracted by their low crafting cost. For that reason, these weapons are mostly reserved for special circumstances such as for fighting massive hordes of enemies or for quickly eliminating Smashers.
Types of Explosive Weapons include:
