flame thrower feels over powered?.
« on: December 10, 2015, 12:58:29 AM »
I'm currently doing a dark night run and I got the flame thrower for the first time and my god this thing is amazing I can pretty much incinerate normal enemies with(only just got past the first floor by the way so this might change) relative ease its cheap on energy so I can keep it on for ages and it has a massive range(for a flame thrower) its nearly as far as my main so I was wondering what you fellows think of it?.

It does hit much too hard, I think.

I've noticed this with all of the weapons that fire very rapidly.  Wheras the ones that dont tend to be useless.

Its powerful, but not OP-powerful imo, and there are some other similar weapons in power level, like STG.

I don't think its hitting power is the problem to me in terms of that it actually feels quite weak to me to me its the bizarrely low energy consumption combined with its large range It does seem really rare though since that one run was the only run I've come across it not that that's relevant unless secondary's are intended to be scaled to rarity I do agree though that a lot of the secondary's don't feel well balanced though.
