    Haven't got it yet but I'm thinking it's going to be Abe's gun, 50% extra damage on charge attack will soften the walkers up so my other assault can get a stun attack.

    I gave it to Abe in the Outpost...

    ( he’s got strong arms, so there shouldn’t be lots of “ dirt puffs “ at the feet of intruders... )

    But, it’s still a “ blue 27 level “ so I’m guessing, he’ll easily die a senseless death, and quickly too...

    I keep trying to envision how I’d use this without stun. Really I’m not sure, I mean I stay away from ruthless on my assaults because I believe it’s a wasted trait on that class. I need them to stun and then recharge on that stun. So this weapon is pretty much ruthless built in. Maybe if I had a ruthless assault this would be a strategy for a Big Bang to a horde but I’m missing anything beyond that. Want to like this weapon just worried I’d be disappointed.

    Ruthless isn't a wasted trait on assaults, stun attacks on higher level walkers leave them with low enough health to regain the stun on the next turn.

    On lvl 37 of the challenge I'm still not thinking to myself "wish I had ruthless trait on my assault". If I need it I can get it with armor. Not sure what higher level I need to get to so that it would be true.

    My ruthless assault also has ruthless armour, that's a lot more damage, if I had a weapon with charging too...

    Base damage of Blue epic rifle is equal to a Hunter legendary rifle. That's sweet. Charge bonus +50% also?

    So it basically turns your assault into a Hunter with area.

    Interesting...

    Ok that makes a huge difference. So the legendary version will have higher base damage than a legendary rifle. This kind of turns your assault into a widespread lethal hunter. I could see giving the assault below with ruthless some better damage/critical damage badges and then using him hunter style albeit with shorter range. For the most part he's distance fodder....maybe not with that weapon.



    Edit: grammar

    I have two assaults I will try it on,
    one has x3 damage x3 crit chance, challenge lawnmower
    The other is x3 damage x3 crit damage like you described for distance.

    Of course, I only have 3 pieces of gear upgraded to level 28 so far..

    The priority of upgrading that machine gun is pretty far down the list.

    Probably by Christmas if there's not another council upgrade first.

    This guy will probably be using it. I like the strategy of maybe Sasha in the lead and 2 assaults. I could see it being useful on some maps.

    This is my only "Offense First" Assault, so the likely candidate to hold the new weapon. Just need to 'up' her level before I claim the gun.

    Thats a GREAT assault!
    In challanges, he can kill regular walkers until what level?

    @Phalanx44 I've got the same female assault, except Dodge instead of lucky. She must be her cousin cause they both look alike. 🙃

    I have one with the exact same traits, gotta love ruthless assaults!

    She's usually good for solo kills up to +4 her own level, and adds a helping hand for a good 3-4 levels after that. Usually my go-to assault when raiding, and scavenging.

    @kaz "Charge Attack deals 50% damage instead..." is that weapon or total damage, or something else? I have two assaults with 1140 damage difference (5646 vs 4506) when using epic LMG without upgrades and both do around 6000 non-critical-damage on charged attack.

    @snafu does the one with lower damage have ruthless by any chance?

    Good catch @Firekid , that assault is wearing ruthless armor.
