View Full Version : Question about BMG's

05-27-2013, 11:16 AM
Ok, so I have a VBI BM-4 Stingray and a VOT Spanner Protector. I just started using BMG's so forgive my ignorance here. They have virtually the same stats except that the Stingray heals for 331/sec and has a link range of 7 while the Spanner Protector only heals for 25 but has a link range of 8.

I noticed that the Protector puts a bubble around you when you press the heal button but it doesn't actually heal you at all. I still take damage from enemies while the bubble is around me, so I'm confused as to what it is actually supposed to do.

So what does the bubble do? Why doesn't the Protector heal at all? Who in their right mind would choose the Protector over the Stingray?

It's right there in the description of the weapon - it reduces damage when you use the alternate fire instead of the healing from other BMGs.
While the Stingray heals, it also has a lot less charge so you'll have a much harder time killing stuff with it.
