Hey all, question .. anyone know what the bonus on my ground pounder actually DOES? First time I've seen the stat Velocity in over half a year of play (beta tester).. I'm assuming it means travel times on the nades' but not really sure.

Travel speed of the projectile would be my guess. Could also be the speed of the secondary little bombs.

Nice GP! Very much coveting that ;)

It should affect the speed the the grenade flys out of the launcher.

I have that on my ground pound and from what I remember it is the speed at which the grenades travel which is increased

I would assume its how fast the bombs fly.

the projectiles move 25% faster than normal. first time seeing that for me as well, that's actually a pretty awesome bonus

If the velocity is higher on the bomblets but the det time is the same, you're gonna have less damage overlap on large targets, though you'll cover a larger area. Good for tagging sieges I guess.

I mostly use a mass cannon for sieges. Really can't be beat.

I got a similar XP bonus on my purple mass cannon, but I think it uses the phrase "projectile speed" instead of "velocity"
