Just wanted to let you know I am passing this on to the combat folks to look into. I will let you know once I have an update. Thanks for bringing this to our attention!
Make sure you link this post in the stuff for your combat folks to look into, instead of the unsubstantiated and highly uneducated QQ that make up 99% of this thread:
TLDR version: Conqueror > PvE crafted implants, ears, weapons right now. Working as intended.
Conqueror < Campaign weapons, primarily due to power crystals in the campaign weapons. Not working as intended.
