Good joke. Everyone who became pro uses the rockets anyway. This pistol thing is useless.
Rockets are horrible, they only deal 15 damage if you get every hit and it takes a long time to load. It's okay good for one quick hit.
The laser pistol is faster, if you're good with it you should get an average of 12 damage per couple seconds. The laser pistol is much faster than the revolver. It's faster in reloading and shooting, the revolver is like 3 seconds per shot and reloading is like 10 seconds or more, you won't be doing any damage if you are reloading.
The laser pistol does beat the mounted guns, smg and shotgun. I would say it's about on par with the missile launcher and it's much more reliable and faster than the revolver. At least the laser pistol has slight homing, the revolver has almost no homing. Also the time it takes to reload for the missile launcher is about the same time it takes to fully charge for a 25 damage shot.
I agree with Vadimony that experts do have the knowledge to choose rockets. It's not based on power, but accuracy.
It's also got other uses:
- You can fire them at an angle that allows you to not directly face an opponent.
- They travel over and around surfaces to reach enemies at lower/ higher planes.
- They track far and have good range.
- They can inflict "sap damage" to anyone they pass as they head towards their intended target.
So that 15 damage can be "30" damage if you hit it through two enemies.
But my personal use is to use it to detect my enemies when they are hiding as the rockets tend to automatically find the closest target.
