Let’s face actuality; not all Unique Weapons get the identical quantity of affection and utilization as others in Future 2, particularly in endgame content material. A primary instance could be Arbalest, the Unique Linear Fusion Rifle which noticed little utilization in high-end content material in earlier seasons, till it acquired Anti-Champion performance in Season 15. Since then, Arbalest has been a staple in gamers loadouts for primarily all types of endgame content material, corresponding to raids and nightfalls.
However what if different under-performing Unique Weapons acquired the identical remedy? Which is why at the moment we’ll be discussing 10 Unique Weapons that ought to get Anti-Champion Performance subsequent in Future 2.
(Observe: This checklist isn’t in any specific order)
Salvation’s Grip, the primary ever Unique stasis weapon, is a weapon that sees little to no utilization in any content material of the sport. The unique “objective” of is that this gun was to make use of the stasis crystals it might generate to shatter different crystals discovered all through Europa for a quest again within the Past Mild marketing campaign. Since then, other than maybe utilizing it for platforming functions, the gun’s relevance light away after.
However by including Anti-Champion performance to the weapon, issues might take a drastic flip. In a earlier season, grenade launchers got the seasonal mod, Unstoppable Grenade Launcher. That stated, if Salvation’s Grip had been to be given the Unstoppable Anti-Champion operate intrinsically, the gun’s utilization might sky rocket. To not the extent of Arbalest, in fact, however by doing so it provides the weapon the power to stun Unstoppable Champions in endgame content material, without having a seasonal mod. This skill is sorely wanted since only a few Unique weapons within the recreation have built-in Unstoppable.
Launched within the Witch Queen DLC, the Osteo Striga Unique submachine gun nonetheless stays as a incredible choice for clearing out rooms of enemies in a single fell swoop. Nevertheless, quickly after launch, gamers shortly realized that other than defeating a bunch of enemies without delay, the gun didn’t have every other worth to it. This trait is valued in a whole lot of content material in fact, however when dealing with situations corresponding to dusk actions for instance, the place a particular loadout is required, until the weapon has Anti-Champion performance, then the gun’s worth shortly diminishes.
Submachine weapons are infamous for having Overload Rounds as their seasonal Anti-Champion mod, thus by following custom, Osteo Striga needs to be given Overload Rounds intrinsically. This is not going to solely permit it to take care of giant teams of enemies without delay, but in addition take care of the customarily annoying Overload Champions, whom are infamous for being probably the most tough to kill in endgame content material. Osteo Striga has the potential to be one of many strongest main weapon within the recreation, and by including Anti-Champion Performance to it, its potential may very well be absolutely realized.
The primary ever Unique weapon revealed for Future 2, the Sunshot Unique hand cannon has had its ups and downs all through the years. It just lately grew to become the focal point again in Season of the Haunted, when the Photo voltaic subclass acquired its main rework and Sunshot was entrance and heart for many Photo voltaic 3.0 builds. This weapon is incredible for smaller scale content material corresponding to strikes or seasonal actions. However within the endgame, it reveals little utilization.
Including Unstoppable Hand Cannon intrinsically to the weapon will permit Photo voltaic 3.0 builds to shine even additional in endgame content material. Sunshot is nice gun to make use of when clearing waves of enemies, corresponding to Osteo Striga as talked about above, however struggles towards stronger enemies like Champions. Giving this weapon Anti-Champion performance will give it the respect it deserves as nicely persevering with to be a staple in fashionable loadouts.
Just like different Unique main weapons we’ve mentioned, Ticuu’s Divination is a really sturdy weapon that may filter out hordes of enemies in a short time, however struggles towards harder opponents. In earlier seasons the place one of many seasonal Anti-Champion mods was Overload Bow, Ticuu’s Divination noticed a whole lot of play particularly in content material corresponding to nightfalls. However within the final three seasons because the return of Overload Bow, Ticuu’s utilization has plummeted.
In contrast to different weapons, nonetheless, Ticuu’s is in a singular place the place any one of many Anti-Champion mods may be positioned on it. Though, in our expertise, Overload Bow could be greatest fitted to it, as Ticuu’s is nice for monitoring and destroying them with ease.
Launched within the Purple Conflict marketing campaign, Borealis is a singular Unique Sniper Rifle the place it was by no means good or dangerous to make use of in a manner. Its Unique trait is much like the Unique Auto Rifle, Hardlight, the place it might change its harm kind, biking between Photo voltaic, Arc, and Void. Whereas it sounds good on paper, sadly, it by no means excelled when used in-game. Including Anti-Champion performance to it, nonetheless, might change issues drastically for it.
Sniper Rifles are sometimes granted the Anti-Barrier Sniper mod throughout a given season, corresponding to the present Season of Plunder that’s ongoing within the recreation. If Borealis had been to be granted Anti-Barrier Sniper naturally, then its utilization might skyrocket for hardcore content material corresponding to Grandmaster nightfalls for instance.
Like Borealis, Skyburner’s Oath is an Unique Scout Rifle that sounds good on paper, however when utilized in observe, it fails to fulfill expectations. Its essential perk offers further harm in direction of Cabal enemies, which sounds nice, however it doesn’t promote as a lot harm as gamers would really like. Sadly, Skyburner’s wants an general buff earlier than receiving Anti-Champion performance.
Normally, Scout Rifles are much like bows, the place they are often modified with a number of Champion mods, Anti-Barrier Scout or Unstoppable Scout being the principle selections. On this case, any of the talked about mods would work nicely with Skyburner’s Oath, and if it receives the buffs it deserves, the weapon has the potential to develop into a top-tier alternative for gamers’ loadouts.
Legend of Acrius
The primary raid drop Unique weapon in Future 2 and the primary ever Unique Heavy Shotgun within the franchise, the Legend of Acrius has seen various utilization over time. In yr 1 of Future 2, the weapon noticed a strong quantity of use in virtually all actions. Nevertheless, this shortly diminished because the years glided by and different stronger weapons had launched. Equally to Skyburner’s Oath, Legend of Acrius is one other weapon that sorely wants an general buff earlier than receiving Anti-Champion mods.
That stated, the one Anti-Champion mod shoguns at the moment can obtain is Unstoppable Shotgun. If the Legend of Acrius had been to be granted this naturally, together with an general buff to the weapon, it might doubtlessly rise the ranks of raid weapons as soon as extra. Though, shut quarters fight wouldn’t be smart in endgame content material corresponding to raids or Grandmaster nightfalls.
The primary ever Unique Hint Rifle launched to the franchise, Coldheart had its glory days early on in Future 2. Nevertheless, like Legend of Acrius, as years went on since its launch, its utilization shortly light away as higher weapons had launched. Particularly in yr three of Future 2, when the Shadowkeep DLC launched, the place Coldheart would have a direct competitor, one other Arc Unique Hint Rifle, Divinity. Nevertheless, the 2 weapons are utilized in completely different conditions.
Divinity has been and continues to be extra of a help weapon for groups to have assured vital hits towards enemies. On prime of that, it was the second Unique weapon ever to have a Anti-Champion mod naturally aside of the gun, within the type of Overload Rounds. Coldheart, then again, is a harm centered weapon that continues to deal extra harm the longer the weapon is used. In yr one, Coldheart was one of many “go to” weapons for endgame content material. If the gun had been to be given Overload Rounds, and a attainable harm buff, Coldheart might doubtlessly develop into a “go to” weapon as soon as extra.
Yet one more case of “sounding good on paper however poor outcomes when utilized in observe,” the Unique Pulse Rifle, Dangerous Juju, might use some assist. Gaining extra tremendous power per kill is a incredible perk for an Unique Weapon; nonetheless, on this case, it doesn’t really feel sufficient. As we’ve mentioned with among the earlier weapons above, this gun wants an general buff earlier than it receives Anti-Champion performance.
That stated, Pulse Rifles even have the power to make use of a number of Champion mods, Anti-Barrier Pulse and Unstoppable Pulse. For this case, Unstoppable Pulse may very well be match for Dangerous Juju however Anti-Barrier Pulse might work simply as successfully. Combining Champion mods in addition to the power to extend your tremendous power per kill might result in some noteworthy builds for endgame actions.
Outbreak Perfected. Arguably some of the beloved weapons within the Future franchise. We noticed this weapon beforehand in Future 1 as Outbreak Prime, however later introduced into Future 2 and remastered into Outbreak Perfected. When it was launched again in Season 6, it utterly dominated the sport and was unanimously the most effective main weapon within the recreation. Now, in Season 18, issues have modified. Outbreak Perfected remains to be a robust gun to make use of in most recreation content material. Nevertheless, it doesn’t dominate like the way in which it used to.
Including Anti-Champion performance might assist deliver this gun again to the highest of the pecking order. Since Outbreak is a Pulse Rifle, Anti-Barrier Pulse and Unstoppable Pulse may be modified into it, nonetheless, given the character of the gun and the way it may be used, Anti-Barrier Pulse could be a greater choice for it. Giving this weapon a Champion mod will improve its worth ten-fold, and is usually a staple as soon as extra for hardcore content material.
That’s all for now. Season of Plunder is nicely underway in Future 2 and hopefully in future updates and seasons we might doubtlessly see a few of these Unique Weapons buffed in the way in which they deserve.
