Can we please have the cost of Missile blast lowered to 16 and have its damage boosted somewhat. As it stands it barely does more damage than rapid shots and it costs 25 heat ffs.

It's instant cast and doesn't have a cooldown, working as intended.

Its a yellow a30m range attack good for PT against enemies with any sort of defense cds against white damage. Evasion, and deflection apply here.

missile blast is an aoe

you have to admit its the only spammable instant ranged aoe for bounty hunters. I use it for the sole purpose of interrupting multiple caps

Aoe rotfl... missile blast does next to ZERO aoe damage. It costs 25 heat.. It barely does more damage than rapid shots which is also 30m and has no heat at all. Can't believe i'm having to argue this lol. NOBODY uses missile blast.

It's Kinetic damage, Rapid Shots is weapon damage. It's AoE(doesn't matter if it's negligible, in PvP when trying to stop multiple caps it's enough). It knocks down standard and weak enemies(which is probably the reason for the high heat cost).

Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don't you think?

As if standard, or weak, npcs are any threat at any level of the game. It's a waste to use in pve, and has only one use in pvp.

If it at least applied a stacking aoe dot, that would be something.

I agree with the OP.

I wish it at least provided a snare in pvp. Also, it would help out mercs if it did.
PvE theorycrafting has really loosened their standards.

Didn't know people actually use missile blast. I must be doing it wrong.
