Fast fire, tight spread.
Good for dealing much damage quite rapidly.
Ground Pounder vs Stampede
Just take into account they are burst damage shotguns so there not as fantastic for damage per minute as a consequence of the slow reload time.
Looking at the base numbers absolutely nothing will kill a single level one hundred smasher more rapidly than the Ground Pounder working with Raider, apart from a 35% chance Bald Eagle crucial hit with Deadeye.
Nonetheless, if you have a lower level in larger missions the Stampede may be superior as you do a lot more damage per magazine.
All that becoming said, I've Raider mind considering that it came out at horde bash and I wouldn't contemplate applying either in certainly one of my 3 inventory spaces in complicated missions since the damage per minute is lacking. If they gave us a 4th or 5th inventory space I'd place to use as a front-loaded weapon.
Ground Pounder vs Tigerjaw
Some players think that Ground Pounder is just a reskinned Tigerjaw, with a slower reload and much less ammo per mag. In fact, it's not only a reskinned weapon, I think it really is the highest DPS shotgun in the game atm.
A Legendary Tigerjaw at Lv1 offers 1680 damage per shot and deals 6,720 DPS, and a Legendary Ground Pounder at Lv1 deals 1,872 damage per shot and deals 8,426 DPS. The Ground Pounder deals 11.4% more damage per shot than the Tigerjaw and offers 25.3% additional DPS than the Tigerjaw. At the expense of being the highest DPS shotgun inside the game, it has on the list of longest reload speeds inside the game at five seconds. Additionally, it out damages and DPS' the Stampede.
With that reload though, you could possibly compensate for it by using UAH, Shock Specialist Hawk, and having one particular reload roll on your Ground Pounder, and the reloading is fast enough to where it really is a non-issue, and you may reload at a fast sufficient rate that you can primarily fire it at a slower fire rate by frequently reloading soon after firing. I can do exactly the same thing on a Stampede shotgun that I have.
