I've been suspecting that it's not working well.
I hadn't thought it wasn't working at all, yet.
I was still in the 'Am I seeing this correctly?' phase.

I thought I was imagining things but my syphon flash rifle wasn't giving me health earlier when I was doing contracts. It'd proc but my health would stay the same.

OK I wonder if this was an intended fix since why would a gun give you health back?

Positive fix but who knows....

The whole point of siphon is to "siphon" health from the enemy, and I've also heard that at full heath siphon does more damage.

Working on this end. However this Blast rifle doesn't seem to proc as much as it used to.

VOT Blast Rifle?

That sumbish used to be a monstah with syphon and a 1.5 mag against Volge.
Then they nerfed the proc.
I crushed 'em all because taunting a mean looks did more damage after the proc.

I'm wondering if they ninja-nerfed out syphon rates.

Yep. You KNOW that proc was broke before that nerf. You KNOW it.

I don't really use them much. I'd rather the Mazu. Got a Electric Flash Rifle from the WM and decided to give it a shot. Wouldn't be surprised if they nerfed the syphon proc. That Flash Rifle proc'd like mofo when I used it. Though it might've seemed that way because the electricity proc lasts a bit longer...

Does not matter if your full health or not, its a flat out damage, usually 463 give or take..

Well Syphon does several things

- A proc for about 463 give or take, flat damage goes through armor, that's more damage then a regular bullet
- A percentage amount of heal
- Able to proc off multiple targets for mass heal health/shields

while having the same proc frequency and no the DoT's don't stack

Bio

- Slight DoT (5-10) per tick give or take
- Slows Target (Poop Shoes)
- Slightly Reduces Damage


Electricity

- Removes HUD (PvP) (Electricity Crackling)
- Slight DoT (5-10) per tick give or take
- Stun NPC's with electric dance

Fire

- Slight to Moderate DoT (Engulfed in flame)

Radiation

- Percentage Armor Reduction (Toxic look)

a slight adjustment to the siphon proc would help balance the other Nano's out, like I said unintended balance change.
