From Cruzz's DPS file, accurate to the previous patch.
The Vickers-K upgrade to the UC does the following:
- Gives the UC +5 range.
- Gives the UC a timed suppression ability.
- Improves the UC's penetration.
- Flips the damage profile over (the Bren UC does more damage at longer ranges)
However, it seems to be substantial damage downgrade. The UC's usually fighting at max range because a snared UC is a dead UC. But if I've understood this graph correctly, the Vickers K upgrade cuts its long-range DPS in half.
Am I missing something here, or is the Vickers upgrade a bad call if you're using the UC to inflict damage?
