The damage potential for this weapon is off the charts. It can score over 200,000 dmg on a volge Viscera in one shot. But it seems to me that it's impossible to be accurate with this weapon. Hip fire shots go wild, understandably, but even while using the scope I noticed that scoring headshots will not always land critical damage, but regular damage instead.

I also sometimes get no damage at all even though I'm certain that I didn't miss. This seems to be an old glitch with sniper rifles that happened sometimes when using the scope or when swapping weapons, which I thought was fixed because it hasn't happened to me in a while.

This Volge rifle seems to be a very powerfull weapon, but I'm wondering if there's a trick to using it correctly.

it's a keeper. The old glitch was tied to the GUNSLINGER perk, if you equipped it, you would do NO damage when scoped in.

That was the glitch that made me quit for 6months... tell me it's not back?

Aim like you're using a ranger. Aim for the base of the neck and you'll almost always get a crit.

Hit detection on the other hand...

Only thing I have found with it is you have to be very careful about firing before you release the right mouse button. If you release the right mouse button too soon the shot will go wild. Sometimes curve, Hunted style. I generally do a sort of rolling motion. LMB down, RMB down, LMB up, RMB up. Takes a while to get used to the rifle, but once you do it is beast.

Now that you mention it, that's exactly what it was. And yes I have the gunslinger perk equipped. Maybe it's just doing it for this particular type of rifle?

That could be what I'm doing wrong, regarding crit dmg vs. reg dmg. Definitely a tricky weapon to get used to.

its not the old bug something new i have been useing it a lot lately trying for my 5k bolt kills and i can tell u after the patch about 1 out of 4 shot u will see them get it but no damge oddly i have seen it hit do no damge but its fire nano would still set it on fire i think they tried to fix the full charge being in accurate on big enemies like wm and dm but made it worse. i think its the buged that affected the typhoons has to do with the explosion radius being messed up on it.

My friend if your trying to get the 5K kills on Bolt action Snipers, do as i did, go to the Thorn Liro Arenas. The first arena is the best for the effect, lots of litle hellbugs, let them gather and shoot to the midlle of them, you can get 200 to 250 per match.

Last Night it was really amusing, since the mobs wouldn't move. Wherever they spawned, that is where they stayed (though the ranged mobs did move on the server, and could shoot you from seemingly out of nowhere). Made it easy to get some weapon skill up. Especially explosive weapons.

The Gun is defiantly reminiscent of the BFG with a powerful slow moving projectile. Interesting enough this falls under the 'Volge LMG' category. All cold fire weapons do. Even the Thunder Pistol.

Ok, so I tried removing the Gunslinger perks and making sure that I don't release the RMB before firing, but my hits still aren't dealing any damage. I'd say maybe an average of 1 hit in 5 will show any damage at all.

I'm starting to think it might have something to do with the Sharpshooter scope mod that I installed. I would try removing it but would hate to lose my mods for nothing if it doesn't work.

Zhedda
06-06-2014, 09:16 AM
Are you aiming dead at the head? If so, aim a little lower. Aim around the neck. Same for anything else; try to aim just below where you want the bolt to go. Also make sure the enemy is not behind rails, or other terrain. Volge weapons are really bad about not being able to fire through gaps. The payoff is worth it, however, when you can one-shot most enemies with it (pre-scaling).

I've long had my suspicious about some of the scope mods... I'd be very interested to hear how this turns out. Please keep us posted.

Been using this gun exclusively to get the 5k bolt kills and seeing the same results on shots that appear to go through the target quite a bit since the patch. Some mobs worse then others. Have not tried to remove the gunslinger perk will do that tonight. I have recorded this to prove I'm not...... OK just to record it.

There's no question that it's hitting the target. The shot detonates and you can see the explosion. If it misses, you just see the shot (a big bolt of light) continuing on it's trajectory. Keep in mind I've been shooting at huge Viscera's. For smaller groups of enemies, I can a least hip fire point blank and shoot the ground near their feet, and the blast takes care of the rest. I just wish I could reliably score those 200K - 300K critical kills.

I suppose I can afford to lose a couple of mods. Will try removing them tonight when I play.

I noticed after using a full modded assassin volge lightning rifle that it feels slightly more accurate then it used to be. Strafing seemed to hit more then sitting still. Also tried it on a hellion for the hell of it earlier. A crit hit did 230k+ damage, after 2 crits its health was nothing more then a sliver. Very strong gun, but you seem to have to be patient until you can get the hang of it's crazy firing arcs. Beyond that, the volge assault rifle seemed to be firing rather straight lately. One last thing, I seem to no longer be able to hurt myself with close up splash damage, so I'm sure I read somewhere about doing some change to splash damage. No idea why though.

It was actually hitting correctly after the fix that gave the Lightning Rifle its damage boost when charged. But one of the last hotfixes broke it again and now even uncharged shots have the problem.

It actually became a nice sniper rifle after the fix that gave it the Damage Multi when fully charged (and the hit detection was fixed). Now that the hit detection is broken again though it is back to the shelf...

I posted a ticket yesterday they told me they are aware of the problem and to put a bug report in on my 360 so
i put a bug report in today and fingers crossed eh.

Here is the answer I had:
Response By Email (GM Kitsoone) (06/08/2014 03:47 PM)

Lol, I know I had a FRC bolt sniper assassin syn, with a 4.4x crit that I held onto forever. That is until DLC 5 came along and made 98% of my equipment totally useless. Still, even if the Volge weapons are somewhat worthless, they can be fun to play with when I get bored. Now I hold onto nothing, because things become worthless too fast, and upgrading rating isn't really worth it either. *shrug*

I'm around 5300, and due to a disdain for PvP, have stopped leveling. My FRC is one of the few weapons that I've maintained. My alts are so hopelessly behind in Arkforge to catch up to their own level on anything, that I've given up playing them for the most part. I can't stand the idea of just dumping everything and starting over, yet I also can't stand the idea of playing at 3/4 effectiveness. Trion hopes it'll push me in the store. It's just made me stop playing them completely.

If you start out caught up, and just maintain your favorites, it's somewhat possible.

I understand. I barely pvp as well, but when the equipment was switched over I tried to dump a lot of arkforge to level up some of the orange weapons I was fond of. I had quite a few, and am only at 5100 ego. After upgrading a few items, I realized that only the damage was increasing and nothing else. After comparing them to items from the vendors, the only stat that was decent was the damage, the rest never upgrades. So after wasting a ton of arkforge, I just said screw it, and dumped half my inventory. Most were disappointingly useless. I began doing the same thing to a bio saw I had with a full rank 3 preparedness mod set on it. After using arkforge to increase it's ego level, I compared it to one I could get from a rep vendor. Mine was higher damage and ego rating, but the rest of the stats were red. Which means all of them increase as you level, but using arkforge only increases damage and nothing else. Again, useless. So I dumped mine, bought another and slapped the mods on it. I keep getting arkforge from lockboxes but I no longer see any point in using it at all. As for my alts, I never touched arkforge for them. You seem to level up so fast now that your items become useless an hour after you get something, unless you spend a ton to maintain them.

The only thing I noticed about the volge lightning rifle is that firing normally, it will go all over the place. If you strafe and fire, it never obtains any increase or decrease in height. It just flies at an angle. So strafing a full charge will almost always hit. Still, I still laugh when using it in a major arkfall. I think my assassin lightning rifle has a 3.8 crit on it, even in a rank 10 major, hit the damn progenitor for 240k - 263k a hit. 2-3 hits and it's dead. Easy achievement to get for that final shot kill thingy.

Did the same thing on a rank 10 incursion today, shooting at formidable hulkers. Full charge non crit netted about 94k damage. Full charge crit was 120k+ . Although that didn't seem to chew them up very fast. Still, strafe and fire I could hit easy. Otherwise aiming while standing still, or hip firing and the cold fire beam just goes wherever it wants to go. Though I'm thinking they fixed the others. The volge assault, and thunderer seems to fire straight. They've always been just fun toys for me to screw around with when I'm not actually trying to accomplish anything. :)

Had a lot of issues with one last night. Was doing 101 keys arena expert. I'd shoot the head and miss, shoot it again and hit, shoot it a third time and possibly miss or crit. No consistency to the weapon at all right now.

You know, after I posted the other day the rifle was shooting straight all afternoon. I try it the next day and it flies off in various directions. I wonder if the thing is just super glitched. I can't understand why I can sit and snipe with it perfectly some days, and other days I can miss things 5 ft in front of me. I suppose unless the target is the size of a matron, you're going to miss 90% of the time. *shrug*

The rifle seems to work for me consistently. The only problem is that you'll have to aim at the waist of humanoid enemies to get headshots. But at least it's consistent.

At least I'm not the only one. Couldn't hit the broad side of a hulker at point blank while scoped in last night.
Tried it on a monolith with same result, about 1 out of 3 shots would hit and register damage. It used to be pretty accurate when scoped. Looks like they might have ninja nerfed it in the usual way rendering it pretty much useless.

Flying off in random directions happens when you release the aim button too quickly after you release the trigger button. Why, I don't know, but it does. If you make a conscious effort to keep the aim button depressed for half a second longer it will fire true. Now, as for whether or not it does damage when the projectile hits... that is still a crapshoot ATM.

I have a double crit fire nano just waiting to be made Legendary. I just don't want to bother until I know they're going to fix it. :/ It's painful to line up a perfect shot and see the nothingness of a miss.

They are found in major and minor volge ark falls. However, I am pretty sure you need the Arkbreaker DLC to use the weapons.

I believe so, too. This morning I had a dead on shot that just disappeared. I ended up having to do torso shots to get headshots. *sigh* I know the F2P is coming to the consoles, but for those of us that have been playing already I'd love to have issues which have been continuous also worked on. *crosses fingers*

Scapes, Kiwi, do either of you know if the dev team is aware of the issues with the Volge Lightning Rifle? Specifically how it sometimes does not register damage, even though you score a hit, or it won't do critical damage, even when you strike the critical spot (and another explosive weapon hitting the same spot does do critical damage).

It's on the known issues list, but I'd also LOVE an update on this. With the critical errors happening, I'm sure it's still on that backburner. I really want to upgrade my rarity on it... but it's a matter of Bits at this point and no way am I going to do that to a broken weapon.

I really hope we hear something before 7/3 cuz I just know they all want to enjoy the long weekend too!

Not even after the armor breaks? I have one that's a potential double crit or double damage (waiting on fix to upgrade) with a Fire nano. I would have thought that after the armor breaks it's going to be effective in damage done.

I am a huge, huge fan of volge weapons, but I would not use one on the Warmaster. Lot of reasons why:

1) If you miss a shot on a charged weapon, you miss out on a lot of DPS.
2) Volge weapons have travel time. By the time the projectile gets to the big monkey, it could have turned.
3) Volge weapon particle effects can make it difficult for other players to visually distinguish the monkey's bombs.
4) Other weapons do more raw DPS.

3) Volge weapon particle effects can make it difficult for other players to visually distinguish the monkey's bombs.
4) Other weapons do more raw DPS.

Thank you for responding, Zheda.
1. I agree that in it's current state it's useless in any situation as far as I'm concerned. If it were fixed it wouldn't be an issue since I know I don't land every shot regardless of weapon. :D
2. It's definitely a timed action and not the go to weapon. I'd say stationary switch to though.
3. I highly agree with this and usually skip Volge weapons for this reason. I like to see what I'm shooting at. But... they did mention toning down (or giving the option to turn off) certain effects so I am banking on this being a nonish issue in the future.
4. While he's hanging my bf has gotten 1.5 million in damage off of one shot. That's the main reason why I am looking to test out mine. I just don't want to waste people's times in the WM with a weapon that doesn't help. Imagine if they did fix it, though. :D

Hmmm. I'm curious as to why most of you are hitting such low critical damage shots with the lightning rifles. Its very rare if I do less than 600k crit dmg on a shot. My highest was well over 4 million in one shot against the WM. O___o

DAM , now i`m jealous. My best so far is near 500K not using any power and damage spike.
I have all the perks to enhance the sniping feature, like shadow core, hunter stance, etc, but i always forget to cloack and kneel LOL.
I need to try the weapon in perfect combat conditions.

This damn thing can't even hit a Monolith tachmag drive.

its possible to hit the tachmag drive with it,ive done it,its just a matter of aiming at the metal parts just beyond the tachmag drive,and being lucky enough that the shot hit just half and half,half on tachmag,half on metal,then the explosion catches the tachmag

also,the incindiery version is good for incursions with the zombies,aim for the feet,thats why i call my volge lightning incindiery "the toe chomper"

Not even after the armor breaks? I have one that's a potential double crit or double damage (waiting on fix to upgrade) with a Fire nano. I would have thought that after the armor breaks it's going to be effective in damage done.

Possibly, most people switch to slow firing high crit weapons after the armor breaks anyway, so your slow firing gun isn't any worse than theirs.

Thank you for responding, Zheda.

{edited for clarity} If it is ever fixed, then go ahead and try for this reason, afterall it isn't any slower than most of the guns people use after armor breaks.

It`s not fixed, at least last time i played wasn`t fixed. I didn`t play yesterday, so i might be wrong.

No it's not fixed yet, but it may be at some point, and if it does get fixxed then she can go ahead and try. I guess something was lost in tranlsation, and I will edit the post to clarify better. Thank you.

Assassin. dbl crit. Oj dmg. With t5 crit barrel, and the rest are t4 assassin mods. Its at 5.0x crit mult. Fully charged, near a dmg spike will other team members were procking the right arm with radiation Ultimags lol.

Glad I saved a Blue double crit no nano Volge Lightning Rifle. Was considering on dumping it, but usually if it's a double crit on basically any snipers, AR's, SMG's, LMG's. I keep them and see if they may have a use in the future. Would be great if it was assassin too, but still not that bad. Just gotta up the rating and eventually upgrade it to OJ one day when I want to give it a try.

Really disappointed that the thing can't seem to hit the broadside of a barn currently though.
