It's been quite some time since the Arkbreaker DLC arrived but one of the worst things that arrived with the DLC is still present:the broken Volge Lightning Rifle.This weapons still goes through enemies, yet no measures have been taken to fix this.Are there plans to fix this broken weapon?

it fires super slow and packs a nice punch,if you can aim it right.

The projectile is bugged and goes through enemies in most angles.Definitely not intended.

This sniper's shots go through an enemies chest.The regular sniper shots only miss when you're aiming at the top of the head(the hitbox is slightly smaller than the enemy).

Pretty sure it's not only supposed to work if you aim it at the floor. Do people actually think this was intentional?

No,he just got confused.
The devs really need to fix this,the weapon's trash because of the broken projectile,IMO.

I have no problems with this weapon. The graphic is a bit larger than the actual projectile I think so this may be the reason you are missing your targets.

I'm hitting the center of an enemie's chest,not an arm.This is clearly broken.

Exactly!They need to fix this,the gun's salvage as it is.

not broken, its op.

Considering the amount of splash damage it does I imagine it would be very OP if the projectile worked. But no. It definitely broken. And the fact that its still the best way to level up bolt actions really shows how bad the rest of the bolt actions are.

Don't you love it when a post is made about a serious problem and people reply with "works fine for me" and there wrong. People need to stop asking for new content,nerfs and unnecessary comments. People should just focus on fixing the major problems we have and that's it. On Xbox criting in Silicon valley has been going on for 5-6 months, but how often do you see a thread about it? On a thread I made someone posted "just dashboard first and you will be fine" Really? That's broke! It almost seems like the Dev's read these type of threads and move on.

This is true.Probably because new content means more $$$ so they just focus on that since they already have your DLC money.

PS:I'm actually surprised nobody asked "Have you tried turning it on and off?".

It sometimes also has a nasty side effect, not a few times the projectile exploded right after exciting the barrel, a.k.a. on my face, this usually only happens with fully charged shots. Also when shooting from crouch position.

Non fully charged shots usually goes right and hit the enemy as intended, but when they are fully charged they do no damage at all 99% of times (just for not saying 100%)

The problem is that the rivers and streams get adding broken content and people keep ignoring waterfall pollution that has been around for about a year.

Id love for this weapon to be fixed too. Its very lethal when the dmg actually procs. I got a 2x crit/Dmg one that when crits @ full charge, is well into the millions. Best ive done was 5mill+ on wm's back. Could do better with the right perks.

I'm gonna be one of those people that says "this works for me" because it does. Many people in PC NA PVP can vouch for me. There's a simple trick that I learned to make "work again" when it stops hitting people. On top of that, as someone already mentioned, do not fully charge it. All I'm gonna say is that the Lightning rifle has the same concept as the Surge Bolter in regards to the most optimal firing positions

Ask Missmar and King Stud, I've killed them several times while up in the air either jumping off a ledge or bunny hopping.

The one I have is a Stalker, rad converted from electric with OJ velocity and full damage radius. The FDR comes in handy when they hide behind an obstacle. I might just turn it back electric for trolling purposes

The only reason why I rarely use it is because people tend to rage quit more so with the "oh noes he killed me behind this wall, he must be hacking"

The weapon is broken.Sure,my car works fine when pushed by someone first but its still broken.
