Borg adapting to TR--116B, need new weapon for Defera

trekymindtrekymind Member Posts: 39 Arc User
There was me thinking a kinetic rifle would be immune to Borg adaptation. But apparently not. Yet I do seem to remember people saying it would be immune, hence why I bought one to do a few accolades on Defera. Disappointed now :(.

Best weapon for Defera then please.

Regards
Jeff

    Did you by chance have Cryo Immobilizer Module as trait? The Borg don't adapt to kinetic, but they DO adapt to additional effects.

    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    Borg cannot adapt to the tr116b. Are you sure that's happening? This weapon bypasses all shields and like melee can't be adapted. If that is really what you saw, it is a bug. However, I wonder if you were just seeing something else they were adapting to, while your tr116b was still shooting just fine?

    Yes, what he said. Once I spotted that, I turned off that trait. Of course, it makes no difference to the kinetic damage the TR116B does so you really shouldn't worry.

    Curious. I will do some testing. Haven't got Cryo Immobilizer Module trait active, I did check though :).

    It did appear to have the graphic 'adapted' when I landed a hit and I didn't appear to be doing as much damage as normal.

    I will update in a few.

    Regards

    If the borg adapt to something, the damage done will be 1 unit per shot. Also, under your name/headshot thing on the left of the screen a small icon will appear which will say "They've adapted!" and tell you what damage the borg have adapted to when you hover your mouse pointer over it.

    Best weapons for defera are fists and feet (sweeping strikes), swords and mines.
    The weak defera borgse die too fast to these to spend significant more time contemplating about it.

    I'd suggest to get used to them adapting once in awhile and get yourself a remodulator.

    The borg aren't supposed to be an enemy you can just mindlessly shoot your way through.

    there is a rep trait which slows adaptation which is pretty darned OP though. maybe try that.
    Another faction is more than likely to be destructive to the game rather than helping. this game doesn't even have 3 healthy factions, it has one healthy faction, one neglected faction, and one neglected HALF faction.

    For the love of tribble kebab, NO MORE FACTIONS until they can support what we ALREADY HAVE.

    ^ The whole point of the rifle is that it bypasses shields, which means there's nothing to adapt to.

    @OP: If you have no additional passive effects active, I'd submit a bug report. That's definitely bugged.

    Are you a tac using plasma grenades? They adapt to those. Check your passives and the skills that you're using.

    yeah, each of the "they've adapted" boxes will say what the adaptation was to. They adapt to lots of things now, they can even adapt to orbital strike!
