Vs Other Weapons

Hydra vs Nocturno

 

Nocturno is one of an Assault Rifle Founder's Weapon, one particular difference amongst Hydra and Nocturno is that the Hydra has +15% critical hit when the Nocturno has +20% headshot damage. When you score lots of headshots the Nocturno will come out ahead with regards to DPS. That said I think the Nocturno is just not only improved at DPS but as a weapon general.

 

It wastes significantly less damage on overkill targets, like midgets and husks. That tiny bit faster reload is really a lifesaver at times, even though it truly is the roughly the identical damage over time, once you are swarmed and need these bullets they come just slightly bit more quickly. The impact is equal towards the Hydra over time. It is simpler to spray enemies down, rather than possessing to be a lot more precise within your shots.

 

Like a shotgun, miss a single bullet and also you miss many DPS. Miss five bullets with Nocturno? Do not even notice it (despite the fact that that may be the equivalent of 1 Hydra shot, but you get the idea). Nocturno also has greater range, making you shed much less harm over distances. And final but not least. You are able to make 5 light bullets for every 1 Shells 'n' Slugs. Meaning the Nocturno does 5812 harm for every single 5034.5 Hydra damage. Making it really more bullet efficient. The Hydra has great accuracy, but not so good that it surpasses the Nocturno.

 

I still feel Hydra is actually an excellent weapon, specifically for newcomers who didn't have something particular in the AR department and do not choose to get the Nocturno. Also, it uses an additional sort of bullet, I have a shotgun at 30/30 but the Hydra has now replaced it. It really is just that the Nocturno is slightly improved in my opinion.

 

 

Hydra vs Hammercrush

 

Hydra has greater base damage, Energy means whenever you get waves in TP which are 100% elemental that you won't take such a major hit to your damage, along with the +30% damage has been reworked to become a good deal much better. 

 

Hammercrush is actually a semi-automatic Single-Shot Rifle and utilizes Shells 'n' Slugs. I personally just like the Hammercrush on an urban assault soldier in case you can continuously land these headshots, but the damage drops off once you exceed max range is fairly horrible and its range is slightly reduced than regular assault rifles.
