Pummeler vs Hydra 

 

We have introduced the Hydra in the previous article. Like the Pummeler, Hydra is also a Hydraulic Weapon and make use of Shells 'n' Slugs. 

 

Hydra has quite a solid baseline functionality as well as the one particular they handed out has fairly reasonable perks. In fact, the Hydra is stronger unless you got some definitely fantastic rolls around the Pummeller. But don't forget that Pummeller has a higher impact and damage than the Hydra.
