This might be a slightly strange concept to try out, but I thought today I would give you a tour of my armoury, which stores all the loot I have in the game. I have left out the few pages of permanent loot, because most people have the same type of things in that area. Before we get into the pictures, I would like to say that I have put 40 hours into this game so far, and I feel I have been very luck with some of the weapon variants I have unlocked. There are only really three elite weapons I don't have that I really want, the HBRa-3 Insanity(I have the other Elite HBRa-3), the AK-12 RIP(I have the other Elite AK-12) and the ASM1 Speakeasy, if you follow me on Twitter I'm sure you won't miss my tweets if ever I unlock on of these weapons!
A few things to note with the above picture, I have earned the AMR9 Pro Pipe 3 times from supply drops(as you will see in a future post), and it is a really bad weapon, though rumour has it the AMR9 is getting a buff in an upcoming patch! Also if you didn't know weapons such as the Crossbow variants have no stat changes what so ever, it is purely just a reskin of the normal weapon, for this reason I could destroy it, but I hate doing that to Elites!
There are three dud weapons in the picture above, firstly the EMP3 is atrocious no matter which variant you pick. Then there is the MDL Backdraft(grenade launcher) which-like the crossbow- doesn't have any stat changes! Then there is the MK14, which is also an awful weapon, going back quickly to BO2, the FAL in that game was amazing. Not too powerful, put could still pack a punch(pun intended), seeing as both the FAL and the MK14 are single fire weapons, I would really love to see the stats from the FAL brought across to the MK14!
As lucky as I may be with certain classes of weapons and their Elite variants, the PDW Crusher is one of the areas where my luck is lacking. Similarly to the AMR9 Pro Pipe, I have unlocked the PDW Crusher a whopping 4 times! The only other note worthy thing on the above pic is the Ameli Subverter, which has increased damage by two points(20% I believe) in exchange for halving your magazine size, which is a trade I would take any day.
Nothing really amazing here, those glove are the only gloves I wear, and I have an irritating number of MK14 variants, non of which I use!
Moving on, we can see that I have as many PDW variants as I could ever need! Also the MP11 Saviour is a really good/nice weapon to use, when you are using it you really do feel like you are a bullet hose, and the gun backs up this feeling. I use the Saviour when ever I am fed up of using the normal weapons, and want to run around like a headless chicken!
Lastly this page is very lackluster, the only thing worth mentioning are the two EM1 variants, both of which are quite good, and I would use them both over the base version, nothing to massively write home about though!
Right guys, that brings us to the end of my Armoury tour, I hope you enjoyed taking a peak under the hood of my variants! Are there some hidden jems in there which I have missed? What variants do you have? Let me know on Twitter.
Thank you very much for reading,
