Often, i get ******* on by other players because i dont use an assault cannon, rather a blaster rifle for healing. Are there any proven facts that i get less heals using a blaster rifle than an assault cannon? I took all the mods from my weapon, switched over to an assault cannon and seen NO changes in bonus healing done, but the damage and primary changed. I know for a FACT that it affects your DPS, so whats the problem?
Hail of bolts is massively important in WZs to prevent caps. Not being able to use it is severely gimping yourself.
There's no reason to use a rifle. It's not like people aren't going to leave you alone because they think your a vanguard. The green beam of light will give you away instantly.
