This seems weird to me, before it really felt like 50% but now I have to reload about 6 times before it triggers once...

C'mon Trion own up on this one.. Im not stupid, this is my main side arm.

there is a cool down on it, 10 seconds maybe?

so it feels like alot less than 50%

I have a purple one from gunslinger. Its not the same thing exactly. I don't even think its 50%, but it seems to activate 1 out of 3 times on avg.

I'm pretty sure one of the devs said it has a hidden cool down of 10 seconds, I think it changed when they added the cool down to other on full reload rolls and perks

If you've only been around since January then it will feel the same to you as it was changed long before you got to experience it triggering every other time

i had the blur shotgun, and in firing every bullet in ammo pool, twice, it triggered once.

clan mate wanted it, it triggers on every reload for him.

so who knows why it doesnt work for some, but does for others.

I've never heard of a blur shotgun.

Just took a look. The gun effect hasn't changed since it was created. Still set to trigger 50% of the time.

As others mentioned, there is a 10 second cooldown on the effect triggering. That was added back in August of last year.

Does this 10 second delay also apply to the 40% on reload wildcat?

of course it could a run of bad luck coin flips...

Not sure about OP but I know my jp wildcat had a t5 reload mag on it, with a fire rate of over 6 and a mag of 12 I could empty and fully reload in ~3 seconds, with a 50% chance to trigger it triggered a lot it seemed, now however it just wont trigger for the first 3 reloads because its in cool down, then there's only a 50% chance it will trigger on the 4th, meaning the overcharge effect does trigger a lot less than it used to on these guns, luck has nothing to do with it

I really wish theyd avoid using their cooldown to restrict stuff like this.

With a simple math equasion the could just drop the % to suit what they wanted.
