Is There Any Good Use For The Falconic Plasmabow?
INB4 someone says, "use it when a Maker spams Guards in a room," I am aware of that, there is just one slight issue; the Plasmabow uses Striking Damage.
Most Makers that spam Guards in a single room normally put some sort of Armor on them since it requires two body shots (suggesting you actually hit the armor) or one headshot, and you can force people into melee combat by wasting their bolts (and even completely denying them via Corrosive Cubes to catch Guard bodies/bolts).
I get that the drawback for the increased ammo capacity is that, "it cannot destroy traps," but even the thing it excels at, which is killing Guards, it does a poor job of because it cannot destroy/strip armor off of Guards; so you either just need to get lucky and hit an unarmored point on the body, or hit a headshot... Because it is Striking damage, it is only good at hitting flesh... that is it.
This is not even considering that Guard spam is completely countered by well placed Blast Grenades which does a significantly better job at clearing groups AND disarms any traps in the explosion's radius.
Am I the only one who just feels that the Falconic Plasmabow is useless? Anything it does, in my opinion, is just done significantly better by everything else.
