Can anyone tell me the progress of 2handed guns are currently?
It seems the plans are to up them to 8 net stat possible but
has the damage changed at all? Doing 12-25 damage a shot is
not exactly something I like.. sprawl you can autostand half
the time.. or stand before a round goes off.. stunning shots
seem to be so random that most the time I can't even land a
backstab on. So in my eyes, higher damage, possibly 3-5 stat,
wouldnt be so far fetched.
Again my opinion.. but would like some solid info if possible.

I was testing a few things today with a longbow, and a sleek hunting rifle.
I found that the longbow averaged out 10-20 more damage non-aimed per shot
than the gun. And yes, I know flaming arrows add damage, the point tho
im making is that in my eyes, a gun would do more damage than a bow would.
And yes I realize guns do sprawl or stun more often, but again i feel
sprawl doesn't help a great deal seeing as a "sniper" rather not fight
straight up which is where sprawl helps more than from a distance.
Stun also being part of the random luck factor, bash me i know.., that
either happens a lot.. or doesnt happen for a while sort of thing.
Personally I rather see it do more damage and less sprawl/stun than
how it does less damage and the random luck chance of sprawl/stun.
Maybe im just against the whole too random idea.. feels like if you
spend enough time with a stat or 2.. they should have some decent solid
chance... they may have.. but sadly I have to say im on the wagon with
the "fighting is 90% luck 10% skill" players.
