Some weapons are better than others. That's intended and it was like that before, as well (though weapons are much more balanced now overall than they were before this update in terms of their overall output across the board). If all were identical there wouldn't need to be any diversity in weapons whatsoever. In this case, of the two dual-wieldable weapons you mention, one is faction restricted and one is publicly available, so this seems okay. Snipers intended to pack the biggest punch, of course.Edited By: Syn on Year 13 Day 316 11:38
