after i was told ingame that one should use the Hellfire Launcher as secondary instead of primary cause it does less damage than even a non special rifle, i explained that i’m aware of that “information” (gear and theory spreadsheet) and that i couldn’t believed that since the release of said weapon.
So i did some math by myself and put together a spreadsheet. The sheet is about the theoretical damage POTENTIAL of the Hellfire Launcher. So for that i used a specific test scenario to compare it just to a non special rifle.
And since i was told ingame that it could be interesting to post into the forum, here i’am my first post here in the new secret world forum.
I also post this because i wanna know if i maybe overlooked something.
While i have a spreadsheet i prefer to post pictures of the results, first. Maybe it is already enough to get the whole picture or it will be enough for some to recreate the sheet. (I also just regonized that i can’t upload here directly, cause i’m new to this forum)
So, for this comparison, i used my damage data, which was shown ingame at that point. But i changed the sheet
afterwards so i can type any damage values in and it will be automatically calculated again.
The test scenario was as follows:
Incendiary Grenade damage
Incendiary Grenade damage (cooked)
Battle lenght sample: 30 seconds
- While every battle step was counted per second, like in what can happen IN the second not just at the beginning, the results below are the end results of every battle second
for clean testing some variables were deleted:
crit chance: 100%
crit damage: 0%
grenade proc chance: 100 % (no cap)
grenade trigger ability used: Full Auto (without passive)
passive used: Secondary Explosion (doesn’t work on Hellfire grenades)
crit replenish 1 energy: yes (1 energy per second, due to global cooldown)
1 energy replenish every second: yes
Some info that some may don’t know about the Hellfire Launcher:
- it can shoot its grenade and load another at the same time
- while grenade is fired, grenade trigger ability is also fired too (unlike when you launch normal grenade ability
- hellfire grenade can crit
- hellfire grenade is affected by signets (the grenade counts as special too i guess)
here are the results of my testing:
i uploaded these images without an account, so while it says it won’t get deleted, maybe you should save them, if needed just in case.
Let me know your thoughts. Did i miss anything?
€: i can’t even include links in my posts…maybe when answer my own post…testing…
€2: seems like i maybe only can post up to 2 hyperlinks per post, trying something different
€3: no i can’t post any link, don’t know if i let this post up for a bit or deleting it and post again when i can post links…
