New Weapons and Damage Effects in Firefall
Firefall gets a new content update that brings more weapons, additional dynamic encounters, new damage effects and a titan battle hardcore mode.
This extensive update, titled Elemental Destruction, incorporates two never-before-seen weapons and devastating damage modifiers to the Accord armory. The Plasma Flak Cannon and the Bio Injector. The first one is designed for Assault battleframes, fires a deadly blast that explodes upon impact or after a set amount of time, dealing area of effect (AOE) damage. The Bio injector is a weapon that fires lethal needles which inflicts poison damage to enemies upon impact. Moreover, the alternate fire of the Bio Injector is designed to apply heal over time to target allies.
In addition to the new artillery, this update also introduces six elemental weapon capabilities for both primary and secondary weapons designed to burn, poison, and shock the opposing forces in Firefall. Energy based weapon modifiers including beam, laser beam, microplasma, and emissive microplasma, has also been added to shotguns, assault rifles, burst rifle, and sub-machine guns to make secondary armaments more lethal. These destructive weaponry improvements more than double the number of weapon variations available in the game and will be useful in dealing with the challenges introduced in this update.
