Vs Other Weapons

The Bear vs Room Sweeper

 

Room Sweeper is a Legendary Auto Shotgun and makes use of Shells 'n' Slugs.

 

Both for different purposes. The bear is arguably the ideal shotgun but it's slow. Space Sweeper has larger accurate harm per second but eats ammo quicker. The bear for slow mobs, Room Sweeper if you need to kill points quick.

 

 

The Bear vs Helium Shotgun

 

Helium Shotgun is really a Neon Weapon. It's accessible in Epic and Legendary versions. This weapon can fire piercing energy slugs that deal higher harm at a moderate fire rate. Short range and restricted magazine size. Deals energy damage, that is fairly successful against all types of elemental enemies.

 

The Bear hits lots tougher but does not pierce. Try both and see what you like. Plenty of pol just like the Helium Shotgun whereas I do not like it at all. The bear can be a fantastic smasher killer, in my opinion, I use it lots on the raider.
