Also gosh the Buzzer is amazing.
I’m on my second playthrough since the Infection update, and I knew where the easiest Buzzer to grab was located, so I went and grabbed it before doing any bosses. I knew when I started this file that I wanted to do a High Tech build, so I’ve got HT maxed at this point.
I went to test it on Glutt last night. I set off a single Fire Ring to pick off his giant fleshworms, then ran outside his rubber band boundary where he won’t follow and can’t reach. The Buzzer’s range is good enough, and it’s strong enough, that I could shoot him from outside the range he could do anything about it, and it only took about five shots?
I didn’t notice until this playthrough that the Buzzer’s energy balls travel through targets and can hit multiples if they’re aligned to follow the trajectory. Dunno if they’re supposed to do that, but it’s a fiendishly fun thing to try to strategize. I killed four of those mutants that run really fast and do high amounts of slashing damage, with a single Stealth shot?
Just. Wow. Definitely going to remain relevant going into the next “area” of the map whenever they get it polished up enough to add it!
