Im sure many of our knowledgeable members of the community will be happy to enlighten the player base who wants to learn the art of butt whoop.

Get set......and go.

Questions, not questioning the thread starter motive.

Here's mine: In your opinion, which LRJ is best suited for close to mid range combat?

Alright then:

I've heard that speccing a pile bunker for accuracy makes the hitbox larger. Is this true?
Whether or not it's a good idea is out of the question.

Nope.

There is no range hidden range stat on a heat pile.

I hear Laser Blade damage gets capped now at 15000 Damage. If true, what's the new "ULB" and what should we tune them for?

There is no damage cap for a weapon's rated damage. Assuming you're using dual power energy amplifiers, the maximum damage output is dmg of laser blade * 1.35 * 1.35.

If you mean a damage cap when your blades are touching an opponent, I don't have experience with that, so I don't know. I'm certain it's not capped at 15,000 if there even is a cap. You can one shot quads, HRJs, or whatever else has low TE and has 30k+ AP with laser blades.

The new "ULB" looks identical to what it did in V. I don't know the name of it off the top of my head.

I don't think "new ULB" means "new weapon most like the ULB in stats".

I think it means "new laser blade that everyone will end up using because it has the best balance of stats for how blading works in this game".

Personally, I always ran the Utica in ACV, except on a few builds where it didn't fit, and the Plymouth was a better choice aesthetically. The main reason for the Utica was that it looks like a sword and swords are cool. The secondary reason was that it had insane blade length and tuning for accuracy made that even better. Plymouth was pure aesthetics for my Aestivalis cosplays, but the stats on it weren't too bad either. Low EN use and lightweight, it was a decent bay weapon to slap onto a midweight without costing too much to add TE damage.

In Verdict Day, I still have a few not-Utica-any-more builds, but I have more not-Plymouth-any-more builds than I used to. I like the look of the pizza cutter blade, but I haven't found an AC design that I think it looks better on than those two.

Also, how good is that was-Plymouth blade?

And what would you recommend for tuning? I know accuracy still ups blade length, but it doesn't reduce EN consumption any more - Rapid Fire does that now, along with reducing interval. Which is more valuable for blades in Verdict Day? Low EN cost? High damage? Or does that extra reach make all the difference?

NOTE:
Plymouth = Kagiroi mdl. 1
Utica = Kagiroi mdl. 3

I THINK the ULB is Kagiroi mdl. 2

Questions, not questioning the thread starter motive.

Here's mine: In your opinion, which LRJ is best suited for close to mid range combat?


The most balanced is probably the fisherman with good speed/turning and turning is a pretty large factor at close range. However there are ways to play around the lower turning of some of the other legs because they're faster so you can do more with less EN; breaking lock and then coming back to a similar spot after they've turned to try keep up with you just being one example. You might also prefer some defences for things like AS missiles/CE MG/pmg if they're causing your build trouble, as they're very fast lock or no lock and low reload it means you can play in a similar manner with only losing a small amount of AP when you're tagged.
Particularly if you're a close range player as it can help you hold your ground when you come across them and not have to adjust the way you move to expend more energy trying to constantly dodge them.

So ye, rather than saying "this leg is best", I think it's better to say why certain features of legs are useful then you can decide which are more important to yourself.

about what percent of its listed damage does an uncharged laser rifle shot do?

whats the farthest a plasma rifle could shoot before it auto detonates?

I'd like to know this specifically without amps, and with dual amps of the kind that boost range the most.

Both plasma guns and laser rifles have a stat on the weapon. Laser rifles is listed as "decay range" so is less obvious than plasma guns "explosion range".

What's the formula for calculating the actual accuracy when you shoot? I know some battle rifles have high firing accuracy but when you shoot the bullet goes to the side.

There isn't exactly a formula to determine "actual accuracy" when you're firing. Firing Accuracy, Firing Stability, Stability Control heavily influence it though. The amount that each one has an affect on "actual accuracy" are in order that are listed.

If the shot goes completely to the side, it's probably because they dodged, lag, or the server is acting up.

about what percent of its listed damage does an uncharged laser rifle shot do?


In V it would do 33% of it's original damage. I'm not sure about impact force or muzzle velocity.
