If Legend Of Acrius is staying in the power slot, it needs to be improved

NOTE: this is not for the purpose of PvP balance. Acrius is hilariously good in PvP and can one hit enemies in supers, so please don’t make it better in PvP. This post is entirely about PvE capability. Now that that’s over with, let me explain. Acrius is pretty powerful in PvE right now, and it’s staying in the power weapon slot with Forsaken. This is fine, as long as it’s handled correctly. All other shotguns will [b]probably[/b] be moving to other slots, therein their ammo will be much easier to obtain than power ammo. Also, Acrius will probably still only get 2 ammo per power ammo brick whereas normal shotguns will still get 4-6. In addition, it will be competing with all other revamped power weapons. Unless Acrius gets a buff, I worry that it will become obsolete when I could use an energy shotgun and a normal power weapon, such as a rocket launcher. So, I propose a decent damage buff. I’m no PvE balance expert, so I won’t recommend a specific percentage. A damage buff as opposed to an ammo buff of any kind will help it lean into what makes it so special: insanely high burst damage from a super slow shotgun. In addition, this won’t affect PvP since Acrius already one hits absolutely everyone no matter the circumstances. I might be completely wrong, but I don’t want to see my all time favorite weapon become completely obselete in Forsaken. It already has to compete with other shotguns like the EP shotty when they share the same slot, so unless normal shotguns get nerfed or Acrius gets buffed, I’m pretty sure it will no longer be of much use.

  • [quote]All other shotguns will be moving to other slots, therein their ammo will be much easier to obtain than power ammo. [/quote] Actually we are not sure about that yet. But could be yes you pick up a kinetic brick and it will give a AR 100 rounds. But pick up the same brick for a shotgun and you may only get 2. And if they keep the juggler mechanic in the game you will spend most of your time running around trying to find ammo and reloading then actually killing shit with a kinetic or elemental shotgun.

    • Um dude no matter which slot a shotgun is in it still takes power ammo and if you have multiple guns that take the same ammo then some weird sharing of the ammo happens. Would be easier with two primaries.

      • Give all power weapons a 100% dmg increase in forsaken. Easiest fix ...

      • I think the Masterwork'd version makes it much better. Try toying with that some (or watch some gameplay if you can't get ahold of it). It's pretty strong I do think it could stand to have something... extra, I guess, because we already have plenty of better weapons that cover the "butt load of damage" niche, but I don't think damage is what it needs
