Pros and Cons

Pros:

Energy damage is powerful for all elemental enemies.

 

Cons:

Limited magazine size. 

Ammo expensive.

Vs Other Weapons

Helium Shotgun VS The Bear

 

The Bear is really a Pump-Action Shotgun makes use of Shells 'n' Slugs, which bargains high damage and knockback at a moderate rate of fire. Like Helium Shotgun has a short range and restricted magazine size.

 

Helium Shotgun includes a greater DPS and range. Idk about dmg per shot, but in case you land every single shot the Helium shotty will give much more DPS.

 

The Bear hits a great deal tougher but does not pierce. Attempt both and see what you like. The bear is usually a very good smasher killer, in my opinion, I use it a great deal on the raider.

 

There is no clear winner as both do diverse things. Test them out for your self may be the finest tips everyone could give.

 

 

Helium Shotgun vs Argon Assault Rifle

 

Like the Helium Shotgun, Argon Assault Rifle is also a Neon Weapon and deals energy damage productive for all form of elemental enemies. Note that both guns are going to be extremely high priced in regards to ammo. 

 

The shotgun is definitely the clear winner (out of AR, Shotgun, and Pistol) if Ignore RNG with rolls (and modifiers like headshot, important hit).

 

When you compare just how much damage they every do when consuming two energy cells, the shotgun does 2.8 times additional damage than the AR and 2.3 times additional damage than the Pistol.

 

AR = 1 energy cell per attack.

Pistol = 1 energy cell per attack.

Shotgun = 2 energy cells per attack.

 

Even when you attacked twice with all the AR (two shots) so you consumed the same amount of ammo, you've nevertheless completed drastically much less damage than you would have for 2 ammo on the shotgun. This isn't even taking into consideration that the shotgun rounds penetrate, which means that you could primarily hit as quite a few husks as you line up in a row.

 

Pure energy kind weapons (like the event ones) are under no circumstances going to be your 'go-to' for boss killing. At most effective, they're 'fodder killing' weapons, because of the lack of damage and the 'expense' of running energy cell ammo. Fodder husks are generally found in swarms and have low overall health, all of this sets up a notion scenario for shotgun usage, the penetration is just icing on the cake.

 

 

Helium Shotgun vs Husk Buster

 

Helium Shotgun and Husk Buster both are shotguns, and both have bad rolls. The Helium Shotgun can pierce, so it'll go through the domes of the super shielders.

 

Considering that Husk buster had an extremely higher durability, it produced use of to develop into among the superior shotguns inside the game as a consequence of a bug. Right after they fixed the durability it is not as excellent it used to become but - nonetheless probably much better than Helium Shotgun.
