ARC Weapon

Recommended Posts

What your suggestion is:  Bring back the old A-280 or Remove the new one and buff the DC -17s Pistols

Any additional information:  Reason as too why I think this should be added is because asked the other ARC's about and they agree that the new A-280 is dog.

If ARCs believe their weapon is underpowered then they should get an upgrade/buff. After all, they are elite units and have worked hard to get where they are.

ARC weapons in general is very underpowered, the A-280 is supposted to be a long rage alternative, but it's an inaccurate low damage rifle. Including the fire rate.

Duel dc17 commando pistols needs a massive buff damage wise, you can even improve the accuracy overall. Most of the time i'm playing the server as an ARC i still feel like an SO with crap weapons and a grapple hook

All of the ARCs' feedback on the A-280 is basically the same: unreliable, low damage, inaccurate and slow-firing. It makes sense for the weapon you get for being an ARC to be reliable in combat and a buff to its accuracy/damage would achieve that.

From listening to a few ARC members and testing the gun myself in the EC room, it's very unreliable to use and is in need of a buff, or even swapping the gun out for DC-17M like they used to have and buffing this weapon instead (Accuracy + Damage). ARC's from when i remember when they had the DC-17M made them look very appealing for the weapon you get for obtaining ARC along with the Grapple hook + 1 Reg equipment. ARC's are for people who want to put in the hard work to obtain that equipment, and for people who want to join RC (or both).

As with all Clone weapons, spread has been decreased. This should mean both your bolts hit so damage should feel better now.
