View Full Version : Rolling Thunder is apparently terrible on everything but AR/SMG

So I have to weapons I've been testing it on, a ground Pounder, and a immunizer. I slapped 2 rolling Thunder mods on my ground Pounder (one was a +3 mag). So I'm thinking sweet, I'll get one more ammo at least... No sir, I went from 6 mag to 6 mag. It doesn't round up, it rounds down!

Immunizer did exactly what you'd expect, went from 20 mag (I use burst Mod, not mag) to a mammoth 22! Not even a multiple of 5!

In other words, the ammo gains are crummy, and completely worthless on small mag weapons. Move right on past this synergy.

And this is why I laugh everytime I see that Goo Rocket pod (1shot) at the Crytal Pond shop, that has the Rolling Thunder Synergy. But it's just the way the game roles, Some Synergy/Weapon combo's are perfect, some are completly pointless. Bmg and half the Synergys for example.

yeah i love how stupid the synergies and the weapons work... i rarely if ever use them. maybe run n gun or brutal that's about it..only other one would be the prepardness one.

Have you heard of assassin or do you not aim for crit spots?

Yeah i've heard of assassin but i use AR's, LMGs and Shotties... lead down range and center mass for me...sadly the heart isn't a "crit" on games lol

Now an LMG w/Overcharge + Assassin Mods at an Arkfall..that'd be way cool..oh the numbers i could put up with my SAW...

When/IF i use snipers i aim for headshots but honestly the hit detection in this game is off a bit...if i get any SR Assassin mods, they're going to a friend who got an Orange BASR with the Assassin Synergy.

Center mass is fine for the standard class of each race but when you start getting into elite ranks and enemies like blacklung or tankers, crits are necessary. Assassin gives +15% i think to crit and that a lot when base damage is 400+. I play pvp a lot too so that's the difference between victory and death, bro.

Wish assassin mods were easier to find for me... I have no luck. Only found 1 orange and I'm 3200 ego.

yeah i've played enough of this game to know whats going on with stuff... jut cracked 2K ego the other day after a week and a half break due to being sick of the game. Ouuu i got me a Cannoneer synergy on a pistol....ouuu i get brutal mods for a sniper..junk is junk and becomes salvage/scrip or i give it away. Trion has too much garbage that can't be matched up with it's needed garbage in order for it to work....well unless you grind for a few thousand hours... too many beers to be drank and real life things to do for this guy.

PVP.. Overcharge + Saw and if that fails Overcharge + Grind fragger..if that fails.. drop grenade at feet and Revenge kill recorded. PvP is more of a LOL Joke to me in this game due to how it ruins the balance in PvE because of people crying...plus the framerate issues in shadowwar make it unplayable at times.
