So i got rewarded from new frontier harvest with this new infector , bio canker.

It was purple , had 1.15 dmg roll so i decided to give it a go. Grabbed few ps infector mods and modded it (recoil,dmg,fr,range)
AND IT WAS SOO crappy. Ego 2000 survived 2 full mags (40 needles total)
Then i compared it to my canker and the same player didnt survive even 10 needles.

Canker was ego 5170 and blighter 5270
Also the blighter didnt seem to destroy armor plates
And it went straight to vendor

Youre doing it wrong. My blighter was killing people left and right today in freight yard.

Reload
Range
Fire rate
Ego on reload
Damage

Speedy feet mastery

I'm actually torn between this and my 2x dmg cannoneer canker.

does the blighter have less damage compaired to a regular canker?

I believe it is a little lower (~10%).

It should be 10% less damage due to having the bio nano effect applied to its damage done. Was the EGO 2000 player using a Hellfire weapon by chance?

Chance to do Bio damage, not strictly bio alone IIRC.

It has the same flavor text as the Feaster:
Does not spawn parasites but infections deal increasing biological damage over time and has a chance to slow the target.

So it always does Bio damage and has a chance for poop shoes.

I couldn't remember what it said verbatim. Thanks for clearing it up.

My lil toon pulled an oj blighter and its pretty awesome, I wish I'd got it on my main but I have plenty of named infectors/cankers on my main anyways.

Its rolls are

x1.15 mag
x0.85 reload
x1.10 fire rate
25% stowed weapon clip reloaded on a kill
x1.20 dmg

I've been taking a bit of a break from PvP over frustration with its many issues, but I just got a good OJ Blighter, too. Going to have to jump back in (and get my rusty arse handed to me even worse than usual) and see how it does compared to my usual Canker. It has a LOT more damage (7519/sec at the moment, with a 1.20 DMG OJ roll and a T3 barrel until I can find better).

x.090 Reload
+2 Range
x1.45 Mag
+25% reload of stowed weap on kill
x1.20 Damage

This thread makes me sad, and really doesn't make me want to play any PvP before the upcoming changes are implemented (which, hopefully, will make feasters / blighters a bit less ridiculous).

I use 'em, but I wouldn't mind a bit if they were nerfed...along with various noobtubes and shotties, of course. There's still a shtako-ton of balancing to be done.

He/she wasnt even shooting at anybody :p just running around (not a single roll, emptied two mags , after last one he/she did few rolls)

More than that even. Bio reduces weapons damage as well.

Also, cankers and blighters damage comes from bug eng. Not dmg.
