    Default [Bug] Akylios Weapons different visuals?

    I dunno if this was intended (Might have missed notes) or not, but the particle effects on Soliton Blade/Undertow Rifle have changed. Plus, I can really cannot see the effecta unless I use a microscope.

    Anyone else?

    Dev?

    Soliton blade has definitely changed, it used to be a sort of cloud effect, now it's like stuff dripping off the blade. And yes, it seems a lot less visible, although it was sort of excessive before.

    Yea. I kinda wish it had more pop in the effect.

    maybe thats because new items got added and akylios weapons are not BIS anymore. Reducing effect to make them look not as powerful as the new items. I got a firebow and its glowing/burning as hell

    That's a pretty dumb arguement. Reducing effect because AKy weapons are not BiS? wow....

    Fire is always going to look better regardless. The "new" effects on the Aky weapons are just so small.

    And still no answer to this. (

    Yes, the visuals got changed, it was commented on when it was noticed on PTS. While I like that it's not quite so over the top, it does feel a bit too subtle.

    My bane of madness no longer looks like I am standing under a shower-head on full bore around Sanctum etc, so I actually quite like the new effects, although they could be a touch less subtle, and the glow effect to the hafts, handles, stocks etc could also be a little more visible.

    It looks like crap now. The artist was obviously looking at them in full-zoom mode while working and they greenlighted them without actually seeing how they appear in game. This kind of thing happens sometimes in games and its never going to be undone.

    Do you want the art team doing a 3rd pass on the weapons when we're seeing recycled enemy models in ID? I don't, and I'm dual wielding stupid-looking Solitons.

    Just move on.
