    If you ever believe the Blast Rifle/Tempest is a fair weapon:

    Why is the fire rate so ridiculous hampered on all most these?


    Volge Battle Rifles are pretty infamous for being the first OJ everyone finds that later turns out to be the worst OJ everyone finds.


    Clustershots are also reeaaally weak in DPS solely because of the fire rate, compared to... well, pretty much every option.


    With a 2 fire rate clustershot---- wearing pandemonium, activating 3 stacks of Augmented, spiking with Ravenous for fire rate.....

    you get a whopping 3 or 4 fire rate max.

    The synergy doesn't really redeem the low DPS of these weapons, unfortunately...


    Unless....... they're supposed to have NEW cards because they have new names? And these card infos are wrong?
    Plasma Battery, Plasma Bolter, Plasma Blaster, Plasma Burst Rifle

    Hey missmar,

    These items are actually new weapon bases, and are not the original volge weapons, even though they utilize the same appearances. Rest assured that these are much stronger, and we look forward to your feedback while using them on PTS.
