The canister right now is arguably the worst weapon in the game save for the lasher. It barely does it's own job well and is shadowed by the kobalt in almost any way possible. This is due to the fact that the canister is inaccurate, low capacity, and limited at range. Sure it can mutilate targets less than 10m away, but it's suicide for a tank to venture that close to infantry. Regardless of how well it does there, a well-placed basilisk or kobalt could do that to the same effect. What the Canister needs is heavy buffs to make it shine as a shotgun strapped to the NC's vehicles. Statistical Changes: Damage: 125x12 @ 12m, 85x12 @ 46m (Harasser) | 125x12 @ 16m, 85x12 @ 50m (Vanguard). Resistance Changes: All heavy armor can be damaged by the weapon, but the cannon deals only 10% damage. Magazine Size: 16 default, 18 when upgraded. Firing Angles: Maximum firing angle increased to 65° whilst aiming upwards. Now you can hit that pesky C4 fairy! Pellet Spread: 1.3 (Harasser), 1.25 (Vanguard). The Harasser variant isn't very much more accurate (.03 pellet spread reduction), but the MBT version has a very accurized spread to compliment it's more bulky frame and medium range focus. Reticle: Acts as a shotgun reticule to more properly show CoF and allow for better aiming. ____________________________ With these changes, the canister will absolutely slaughter people that attempt to even venture in it's general direction and on more rowdy vehicles such as the Harasser will wipe groups of packed infantry with relative ease. It isn't going to be the obvious choice for the Kobalt will always be better at suppression and ranged fights, but it will be a good tank defense/hard assault cannon useful for mowing down poor chaps caught in the canister's (more effective) sights. ____________________________ Thoughts?
