EGO 2350

Purple FRC Saw

Assassin Synergy

0.95 Reload
-0.10 Recoil
-0.20 Recoil
10% Ego Recharge on Critical Kill

Seems solid to me but I'm still relatively new so I want another opinion.

I am in the process of upgrading a Grenadier one with fire with those exact rolls right now.

So I take that as a yes. We both got lucky, then.

For the future, you might want to open the mod slots before you upgrade to save yourself some arkforge.

Yeah it hit me right when I did it, but doesnt it only cost salvage to add slots? I have millions of it so its not that big of a deal.

I have a few weapons that I'm holding off on upgrading until I get to a much higher EGO rating. Taking up the Rating on a blue or purple through several hundred EGO will be much, much cheaper than doing so with an orange. Thanks for bringing up the mod slots, I hadn't even thought about that!!

That's right, I meant salvage but as your ego is at least 2500 yea, it adds up quick and there is nothing much else to spend it on.

I wouldn't. There's much better saws out there.

** EDIT: Holy Late Posts Batman! Congrats on the DMG Roll! **

I really like the way the SAW looks, but man, now that I've discovered the TACC rifle... I just can't justify that big clunky machine gun when VBI's hardware is so much more smooth and precise. :( I don't think I've ever played a video game where the true strengths of a machine gun are modeled.

Yes but if I was you I'd consider the xtra arkforge needed to upgrade an epic against an orange.

Already did it and got a damage roll on the orange. It was worth it :D

That synergy's disappointing for a SAW, but you'll probably be able to re-roll that someday so nice pickup.

is this worth keeping and upgrading?

I wouldn't bother with it.. but I'm also not a fan of backpack synergies. I don't see how Veteran can do you any good on a BASR. Now if your talking upgrading RARITY, it's as far as it's going to go.

Got this saw earlier this week, and been wondering if it's worth keeping. Wish it had Grenadier Synergy - if so it'd be pretty nice. Honestly I think it's alright and I have tried it out for a bit, if one can control the vertical recoil, it is still quite accurate.

You'll find a LOT better SAW's in the game than this one. I wouldn't put a single drop into it.

I wouldn`t upgrade any of those saws, but that`s just me.

You know, it`s really up to each other preference. Per example the first weapon was born to the game as Legendary, but to me is legendary crap and i only use it because of it`s nano:

The next weapon it`s a possible legendary altough i don`t think it`s a real good weapon, more like a work in progress:

This last one is definitelly Legendary material to me, the synergy is a backpack and it`s nanoless but those 2 criticals are more than enough to me:

But in the end only you can decide what is best for you.


Ps: oops, sorry for the 1st pic, no idea how it came that way :)

@Drac - I agree 110%. That last one is definitely legendary material. HOpefully you don't get the purple roll that seems to be the "standard" roll now (I've gotten it the last 3 weapons I've moved up to purple.. annoying actually - 25% reload on a critical kill)

And yeah, it's really subjective. I don't use blur much, so for me, having a "speed boost" as a weapons bonus is pointless. Now that being said, I know some people who live in blur mode, so for them it's worthwhile. A few months back, you leveled up your weapon and got the mastery bonus, and then waited with it (if it had a good bonus) for the arkforge updates where you could level up it's rarity and level. I've actually got one of these still in my inventory that leveled out nicely. Was kinda bummed that it didn't give me the 2 rolls it was missing, but eh.. no worries.

At least now if you get a crap mastery bonus, you can spend a bit of arkforge and reset it. Now if they'd give us the ability to randomly change our synergy or nano, THEN I'd be really happy.

What saddens me the most is that i sold or salvaged better weapons when the scaling system was implemented.
