Also could we please get an actual offensive cooldown? Why is Battle Focus/Explosive Fuel not a baseline trooper/bounty hunter ability?
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Why not have 2set give 15% TM crit and lower RS cost by X amount and keep the 8% RS boost for 4set.

Would be more in line with the set bonus boosts marauders & snipers got.

(play all 3)

I've no experience with pyro at all, but if I understand it correctly, the problem wthi the old set bonus was that pyro fired their rail shots for free anyway, making it so the 4-piece was essentially useless.

So how about making it so that instead of reducing the cost of rail shot make it so railshot refunds 8 heat when fired. That'd make the bonus useful to both specs, assuming pyro can use the extra heat.

/signed. It doesn't seem right that we could lose so much aim to get a set bonus 3 tiers behind us and still do as much dps as current "Best in Slot".

Granted I see this changing as the loss of aim over takes the set bonus of -8 heat cost. But still. I don't see the reasoning behind the set bonus change..

It is really more fun to play with the old bonus, just because it feels like the rotation itselfs works. I am not that interested in more dps, but in the old feeling of arsenal merc.

Berhaps BW could introduce an cylinder dependend 4er bonus (with a kind of buff or something), which gives 0 heat costs for high velocity cylinder and 8% more dmg for the combustible gas cylinder. This would solves all problems xD

And plz dont forget to fix the upgraded arsenal nerf.

And thx alot odawgg for carring the mandolarian flag for us!
