Weapon Overview Edit
The Breech loaded Pistol is a single shot weapon that fires a large "bore" round. Every time the weapon is fired it must be reloaded. With three different kinds of ammunition this weapon can be customized for a variety of situations.
The default ammunition guarantees a kill with every hit provided the enemy doesn't have a 250 health armor build with the explosive damage reducer. Each BLP comes with three magazines, placing this weapon with the lowest amount of ammunition in-game.
However, these drawbacks are overshadowed by the large amount of damage dealt to hostile targets. This weapon is accurate from close to mid-range. When loaded with Flechette Chamber Boring ammunition, the BLP acts similarly to the Shotgun at very close range. Otherwise when using Incendiary Rounds the target burns for damage over time.
The Breech Loaded Pistol is a weapon with very limited use, so you should probably bring a reliable primary weapon such as the Assault Rifle. The standard explosive rounds can be used like extra grenades, and are very hard to deal with if the player is equipped with an additional 4 lethal grenades, and the Ammunition Pod Mk.1. Counting your breech rounds and free ammunition refill, you'll be bringing 14 grenades to the battlefield. The alternative to using the Breech Loaded Pistol effectively is by using the Incendiary Round Bore, which functions as a counter-Hardsuit weapon. The Flechette Chamber Boring rounds are not recommended, as they are similar to a Shotgun with a wider spread and three rounds of ammunition.
- HE Round Bore: Sticks to opponent and explodes, 250 damage
- Incendiary Round Bore: Sticks to opponent and burns target, 300 damage
- Flechette Chamber Boring: Similar to a shotgun shell, 20 damage per flechette, multiple (14) flechettes per shot. 280 damage if all flechettes hit. (Note: Flechette chambers act like shotgun shells, however, instead of firing pellets, it fires hardened armor-piercing darts.)
