Hey, thanks for reading thread in advance or at least clicking on to see it. I really appreciate it if you up-voted this so others could see it.
This is a new thing for me and I call it "An inside look". What I simply do is take a deep look inside certain things or events being talked a lot in the forums. So today I decided to tackle the Infamous Graviton Lance or as most fans know it, the God Slayer in the crucible.
Today in this "An Inside Look" we will answer questions if why the weapon is so godly in the crucible and extinguish some of these myths posted in the forums.
-How fast does it take to kill someone?
Now this weapon is a two-three burst head shot if the "Powerful bullet" hits all critical in the head. So no you cant get one shotted by a lance even with low resilience.
-What make this weapon so godly?
Many people claim that this weapon is "Easy to use" but, the harsh reality is all weapons are easy to use if you just put effort into it. Graviton is not easy at it seems simply because this weapon needs head shots to be effective in the crucible otherwise you'll mostly get out gunned if you just shoot body shots. Even if the recoil is zero when its fired then it starts the kick. Its almost like a laser pointer. The real reason the gun is so godly and it hits hard is due to one small factor, how many bullets are in the burst. A normal pulse riffle has 3 bullets in a single burst. Each bullet has a chance to land a critical shot but normally its kind of hard to pull off landing all three. Most of the time its usually the first two or first bullet that land on the critical. Even with that you also have the kick while shooting the pulse at the same time making it even harder to land all three. Graviton is different, making basically the "Powerful bullet" act as two bullets so if you hit that critical spot your basically hitting two critical shots from a normal pulse. On top of that the kick is after the weapon is fired so it always lands straight for the most part. Even with that you still have the weak shot for a chance to hit a critical spot or hit a body shot also.
The reason why Graviton Lance is godly is simply because the burst has two shots with the "Powerful shot" acting as two normal pulse bullets but, it also has Zero kick until after its fired so making it easy to land basically two bullets out of three critical shots to head.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed today's "An Inside Look" into this monster of a weapon.
