Damage wise, they seem extremely sub-par when compared to other weapons.

Am I missing something here?

let the little things hatch!!! Unload a clip wait for the eggs to burst.
Idk, I enjoyed my Infectors once I started using it like that.

They seem to be a DoT weapon. I personally don't like them at all, but that's mostly because the parasites gross me out. I'd imagine the theory crafters of our community will come up with a way to use them effectively in a month or so :P

But do the eggs hatch if the enemy isn't killed?

Because killing the enemy with 8 damage a shot isn't easy

the eggs seem to hatch after a set amount of time. If enemy is killed or not.

However, I think they also hatch if the enemy is killed. My friend was using the burst, switching to pistol and kill the target. Either way the little critters that hatch do a decent amount of damage!

I thought it was a DoT too. If your fighting a bunch of mobs; dot ones with a lot of health. and dps the ones with low health. while you are doing this the bugs will hatch, crawl around and attack for added dps.

dps=damage per second
DoT=damage over time
