Weapon variant Progression.
I Am attacking with 4 weapons at same time.
2 - chaining lasers.
1 - Virus, so they don't attack me, I attack them more, I do crits.
1 - Freezer - So they don't run and I attack them even more, doing more crits.
Right now I have a freezes that does DAMAGE and does Slow an enemy AND Decrease it's defense.
But at level ~100 I am unable to progress with that weapon.
If I Scavenge this weapon, or it drops for me from somewhere, suddenly I have
0 DPS weapon, that freezes enemy completely and does nothing else,
0 DPS Weapon, that slows enemy 1.5x times better, and does nothing else.
That is straight DOWNGRADE from previous variant of freezer weapon.
I lose DPS, and ability to hit them more accurate.
I lose DPS and ability to hit them more accurate but renders them immobile for 0.1 sec cause Im hitting them instantly and effect of freezing them is removed on any damage they receive.
Why instead of Forced "Progression"
where I can change my Damaging, slowing and defense decreasing weapon
for something that does two of those worse but one better,
We don't have a variant of progression, where there are several variants of that weapon and there is no FORCED progression from one type of the same weapon to another?
