Anthem Bug Makes Lower Level Guns As Powerful as Masterwork Weapons

Anthem’s best gun is getting nerfed – the default level 1 rifle

Anthem’s best gun is getting nerfed – the default level 1 rifle

Airborne Advantage, Convergence Core, Defensive Bulwark and Firearm Calibration Core.

According to YeetLordSupreme's findings, which were corroborated with gifs from other players that showcase this finding in action, the level one Defender weapon can take down enemies faster than any other weapon in the game, including a level 45 masterwork rifle, Ralner's Blaze. All are Ranger components which increase weapon damage. His level 45 Masterwork Ralner Blaze Rifle was seemingly much more potent, doling out 1,184 damage against a Scar Trooper. It means that the damage numbers assigned to the guns are arbitrary, as are the numbers flying off of enemy heads, because a level one gun takes enemies down quicker than bigger and badder weapons.

This is NOT the case!

However, when they chose to see how many shots it would take to kill the scar trooper is when they encountered the unusual part. This is despite the level 45 rifle registering 1,184 hit points per shot versus only 286 from the Defender, suggesting that the actual damage being registered isn't accurate.

4 bullets! Not 4x as many. Not 4x as many.

He tested this with different weapons and enemies, and while the numbers varied, he says the results were always the same-the level 1 Defender Rifle proved itself to be the most effective weapon in his inventory, and by wide margins.

In a game like Anthem, it's important that players are drawn back into combat with a constant stream of loot in an effort to obtain the best gear they can. It melts literally fucking everything!

It's easy to test, since every time you make a new Javelin loadout the game automatically equips it with the standard-issue level 1 Defender rifle.

Anyway, I'd love it if someone else could run these tests too to confirm that I'm not insane or something...let me know what your results are!

After a bug in Anthem that causes some PS4's to crash was discovered this week, yet another problem has been found with EA BioWare's looter-shooter and this time, it affects weapons. Check out the comments from BioWare Technical Design Director Brenon Holmes, and the studio's Community Manager.
