ZWeiHander stinks

Another event weapon that blows imo, can’t stun unless charged and not even area hit on first attack. Little more power but that don’t matter if u can’t stun on first hit. Another one joining the reject rocket launcher

    Um, these things were known when the event started - what we didn't know was the base damage number.

    Personally I'll still use it in The Distance, even if its not as useful on challenges.

    Damage is higher than a similar warrior weapon but less than a scout weapon. Bruisers' low base damage combined with usually defensive badges mean the damage dealt by my top bruiser (2214 at lvl 22) is still far less than my top warrior (2880) and scout (3769). These are before any upgrading.

    Yes, you get additional attacks from punish & retaliate and you can stun every once in a while. But it does feel like it's a speciality weapon that you will use only now and then.

    Is it fair to assume that if base bruiser weapon damage is 1534 and this is 2046 that the final damage would be 33.3% higher? That would mean 3430 (vs. 2579 for a normal weapon) + it's got gold Lethal so a 15% weapon damage on top.

    I think my plan was to badge my bruiser who uses it with 3 DR as usual, but instead of along with health, my 3 largest flat damage badges

    Yea base is higher but what good is it when it’s a single target and no stun on first hits

    Go smack a high level armor and see what happens, no stun no good

    A bruiser with strong and 3 legendary damage badges will get close to 10k damage.

    Edit- 63% total damage badges would be needed.

    My test run by the numbers:
    Fully upgraded Z base damage= 3,438
    Lvl25 7star Bruiser with Ruthless(+29%)
    + 2 Damage badges = +36%
    Total Damage= 8,818
    Regular Body Shot= 10,904
    Charged Body Shot= 13,582
    Critical Hit= 14,595
    Over all kinda disappointing. :neutral:

    To be honest, I was hopeful about the weapon, but not too optimistic.

    If it had (Area Stun) like the staff does it would be awesome!

    Once again...

    A wonderful super weapon, would destabilize the game balance...

    Nuthin is going to be available, that is more destructive, than already exists...

    ( new shiny toys... )

    I disagree mate. Round Pass loss is a very recent example of something more destructive ;)

    Zweihander is p.o.s i take morgan staf/hockey stick any day. If ng want to make that sword a awesome unig unbuyable superweapon then it should work like normal bruiser but arc is like warrior gold one.

    Or just give the sword the same arc as a Morgan staff, how can you swing that thing and not hit the walkers either side of the target?! I like that it has a different functionality and for maps like BBQ or any that have fatties on it will be a god send.

    Silver Arch should do it to make people happy.
    Too many dissapointed players right now.

    Given it's a 2-Handed sword that it's pretty impossible not to swing around, silver arc would make sense.

    When did RL physics start to matter? Widebore crossbow has always set up a cognitive dissonance in my wee brain.

    I'm upgrading mine just because I've nothing else left to spend XP on.

    I don't have high hopes, never did. But it sure looks pretty, just like the RPGs.

    "ZweïHander stinks???" THEN GO WASH IT!!!!! Haha.... J/K I totally understand....
    Well.... since every critique above implies this weapon leaves a lot to be desired, I guess I'll give it to my permanent Outpost Bruiser since it seems fitting (If only I could name it, "Ice" or "LongClaw:")
