Hello i am SquidofLove welcome back we are going to continue taking a look at the weapons of star citizen and their new stats and capabilities in the update in this video we’re going to focus on the size two weapons and this is where things start getting serious because of their increased firepower but also because of the fact that they are more reliable than the size one weapons so without wasting any more time let’s go ahead and take a look at these size two weapons starting with the lasers, the m4a laser cannon is a more potent version of the m3a laser gun from the size one category, nothing spectacular just a nice entry point to the size two weapons and an affordable option if you’re looking to create a decent and cheap laser loadout, its projectile velocity is at 1781 m/s, its range is at 2493 meters, its damage is at 110 and its dps at 60 seconds can go up to 161,33 the cost of the m4a laser cannon in REC right now is at 800.
The CF-117 Badger repeater has the best rate of fire in the size 2 category and because of this has also the best dps, can achieve the best dps at 60 seconds at 197,60 despite the fact that its damage per projectile is only at 52, its projectile velocity is at 1758 m/s and its range is at 1688 meters, the cost to rent one of these Badger repeaters right now is at 1200 REC and it is a great option if you want to create a loadout that has a very good rate of fire, a high rate of fire and can achieve good dps, the Omnisky VI in the size 2 category, like the Omnisky III in the size 1 category is a more balanced approach to the laser weaponry of this category and we can see that the laser weapons in size one and size two categories at least follow the same pattern, one entry weapon good for starters, one laser weapon with high dps and one more balanced approach its projectile velocity is at 1986 m/s, its range is at 2443 meters, its damage is at 135 and its dps at 60 seconds can go up to 150,75 the cost to rent an Omnisky VI right now is at 1600 REC and it’s a great option if you are looking for a more balanced loadout that has good damage and can achieve a decent dps let’s go ahead now to the ballistic weapons of the size two category and the reliable Tarantula GT-870, an excellent option for offensive ballistic loadouts since its damage hasn’t changed from the previous update, is still at 100 and it can also achieve a very good dps at 60 seconds at 156,67 its projectile velocity is at 1700 meters per second its range is at 2771 meters and the fact that its cost now is only at 900 REC it makes it an even better option this weapon has always been one of my favorite weapons in the size two category and in general one of my favorite ballistic weapons, the sawbuck ballistic repeater is another ballistic weapon in the size two category and i would strongly recommend you to avoid right now because it is in a very weak state, the projectile velocity is at 1222 m/s only, its range is at 1589 meters and its main problem is that its damage has been reduced to 32 per projectile, because of these and despite the fact that it has the second best rate of fire in the size two category its dps at 60 seconds is quite low at only 106,67 its cost in REC right now is at 1000 and I definitely cannot recommend this weapon for a ballistic or offensive loadout, the NN-14 Neutron Cannon now is another shotgun-like weapon that looks less like a shotgun-like weapon in update, my main problem with the NN-14 neutron cannon in this update is its projectile velocity which has been reduced to 855 meters per second, it is the worst projectile velocity at the moment in the size two category, its range is at 2394 meters, its damage has also been reduced from 241 to 168 and its dps at 60 seconds can go up to 159,60, the cost in REC is at 1,600 so it is one of the most expensive weapons in the size two category and I don’t know it just feels off, i guess you could make it work if you can stay close to your target, if you are good with your aiming but I don’t prefer it in this patch the Strife Mass Driver is another one of my favorite weapons from the previous update that seems to be a little off to me personally there’s no doubt that it is a very strong weapon, it has the best damage right now in the size two category at 210, its projectile velocity is at 1856 m/s and its range is at 2654 meters it’s dps at 60 seconds is only 147 and it’s cost in REC right now is at 1,000, the problem with the strife mass driver is not that it is a weak weapon on the contrary it is very strong but there is a better alternative, there is a better mass driver now in the size two category and this is the Sledge II mass driver cannon, the Sledge II has the second best damage in the size two category at 190, only 20 less damage than the strife mass driver it also has the best range in this category at 2816 meters, its projectile velocity is slightly better than the strife at 1969 m/s and because of its slightly again better rate of fire it has a better dps at 60 seconds at 164,67 the cost to rent one Sledge II Mass driver cannon right now is at only 800 REC so it is also a more affordable option, because of these stats and also the fact that it is basically a ballistic weapon, it has shield penetration and it deals damage directly to the hull of your targets the Sledge II Mass Driver Cannon is at the moment my favorite size two weapon and a much better option for me personally than the strife mass driver.
These were the size two weapons and their stats in update, my personal favorites are the Sledge II mass driver cannon and the Tarantula GT-870, two great options for offensive ballistic loadouts but you can use other weapons like the NN-14 neutron cannon, the strife mass driver and the Omnisky VI depending on what kind of loadout you want to create and what kind of goal you’re trying to achieve.
