is a minigun tri-barrel worth it?


i am already using the minigun for my build and it does good. weighs alot, shreds up ammo, but is a good gun. i did randomly find a minigun today and picked up and it weighed 44! 24 more than my other minigun and also had higher damage so i wanted to see why.

turns out, it has the tri-barrel mod equiped which replaces the regular barrels with just 3. it seems to slow the rate of fire and increases the damage a bit (10? 14?)

is this worth it? in one hand it would save ammo/slow it down and hit harder

maybe if you have trouble keeping up with ammo but it does seem the dam might make up for the lost shots per minute

so idk, but if you get bear arms and another heavy gun perc you can reduce the weight and just carry more than 1 at a time with different ammo types

Exactly chairman you lose rate of fire (= save ammo) but gain damage its definitely worth it. Chems and perks can boost that even more especially if its on a legendary.

And think of damage threshold/resistance, increasing your damage will overcome more armor.

Hmmm, yes it is. You get the same damage..basically. Lower DPS but higher total DMG.

Up to you but I can make the ammo easily so I keep the high dps

what you say about damage resist makes alot of sense though

Good to know this GMR :thumbup:

It makes sense, adding damage changes percentage calculations and the fire rate factors to determine the actual damage per second dealt by your mini.

What are the actual specs on your MG?

Up to U but there is an argument to do the damage for armor reasons and bonuses.

Just for fun can you post the specs on both? Unmodded and modified?

Just out of curiosity
