The Calus damage comparison video is here. Coldheart, Merciless, Sweet Business and plenty more make a showing, and even though THIS particular weapon isn’t the best, in my opinion, it’ll steal the show. Watch the video to find out what it is! Or just read the comment section in like, an hour. Thanks to Fitzy, Clover, Red, Holtzmann, Toes, Chickenlord, Bones, pG, Shoobie, Espy, Striker, Dragon, Math Class & WRECKnation for all of the help doing this, I know how tedious it is to do.
First off, I really hope everything is correct in here. I tried to be very thorough, I re-wrote the entire script after my first draft, had it peer-reviewed, so we SHOULD be alright, but it’s possible I missed something.
Second off, I can not reiterate enough how not exact of a science this was. Aksis, Vosik, Atheon, those are all easy. There’s a set amount of time you get per damage cycle. The weapons do one big shot, it’s easy to count. In this fight, everything varies. Your damage phases are slightly different every time due to Calus doing something like going early on his bomb, late on his bomb, only staggered once, staggered twice, went to robot mode, your Force of Will was low, your Force of Will was high, you ran out of ammo, you had extra ammo, you hit a lot of crits, you missed a lot, the list goes on and on. To account for all of these things would mean weeks of testing, Force of Will stack testing alone would take hundreds of hours.
My final tests at the end of the video represent ONE scenario. One set of timings on a specific plate with specific weapons. If things were slightly changed, there’s a possibility that the results will change too. Maybe if I tested with a higher amount of stacks, things will be different. I can only account for so much and test for so much.
Also, if you’re wondering about exotics tested, but not mentioned in the video, like Hard Light, they weren’t good enough to talk about in any sort of in depth way. I will say that Hard Light is actually pretty good. If a weapon was not tested, I either didn’t have it or forgot about it. We ended up spending a decent amount of time testing weapons that didn’t even make it into the video.
Also also, sorry about all the ads in this video, but this would normally be split into 2 or 3 videos and I didn’t want to do that for this one based on the way I set it up. It did compare some weapons to each other, but I didn’t want to do a part 1, then a part 2 later because it woulda felt disjointed. However, dropping a 27 minute video on this channel is probably not going to end up being a good idea and I would like to make an abbreviated version of this video very soon. If anything, I’ll have my raid loadout video out soon, maybe that will be the short version of this video.
