After reading up on the [url=https://www.reddit.com/r/CruciblePlaybook/comments/5ok8ka/massive_breakdown_of_rise_of_iron_legendary]Massive RoI Fusion Rifle breakdown[/url] by Mercules904 where it was mentioned by LUMH in the comments that smallbore actually makes Saladin's Vigil pick up one more ammo on spawn and picking up ammo bricks from crates.
So I decided to test it and realised it also increased the total ammo you can acquire on the vigil from 21 to 26. So I thought I share it with you.
Although Rifled is still top tier perk in that same slot I think smallbore has its own place as well.
Why is Rifled Barrel a top tier perk when
Range increases projectiles speed
Stability decreases spread of projectiles
Range stat has nothing to do w range on fusions....the damage fall off only really starts when u shoot from scout rifle distance....
