Anthem's damage numbers are an illusion and the best weapons in the game are lvl 1

Recommended Posts

Close this fucking studio even Dragon Quest on the NES in 1986 did scaling right without patching. :D

 

 

 

-With my Level 1 common Defender rifle, one bullet does 286 damage against a normal scar trooper.

-With my Level 45 masterwork Ralner's Blaze rifle, one bullet does 1184 damage against a normal scar trooper.

Given these numbers, you might (reasonably) assume that the MW weapon will kill enemies faster, since it does more damage.

This is NOT the case!

Going back to the scar troopers, the MW rifle takes 6 bullets to kill our scar friend. Given the damage numbers, our level 1 rifle should take around 5x more bullets to do the job. Guess how many it actually takes?

4

That's right. 4 bullets!!! Not 4x as many. Literally 4 rounds. Our level 1 rifle is somehow more effective than our level 45 masterwork, despite what our damage pop-ups are telling us.

I have tested this with various weapons and enemies, and while the numbers vary, the results are always the same: the level 1 defender rifle is by far the most effective weapon in my inventory. It melts literally fucking everything!

So, from this we can draw two conclusions:

1 - There is some buggy fuckery going on with the default level 1 rifle

2 - Damage numbers are meaningless and do not reflect the actual damage done to a target

hopefully this marks the end of bioware. Another studio ruined by SJWs, quota hires, and inept management.

 

Good riddance to bad garbage, rot in hell Bioware! :glad:

EA is the problem. Not Bioware. This is not the game Bioware wanted to make. EA stepped in and turned it into this trash.

They already stated this was an isolated bug. 

Yeah or I would just quit this game already. But afaik Anthem still have some sort of scaling which is dumb as shit. What's the point of hunting for better gear when your lvl 1 gun is the best? With how broken the game is, I wouldn't be surprised if the scaling is broken too and that's why you see people with lower gear outperforming people with better gear. This game often left me too many times wondering how it passed testing. Did Bioware even test their own game? SMH :shake:
