The most trash weapon in the game. Too much ammo consumption, not enough dps. Gotta go with the pump shotty

Dude, the AR is hands down the best weapon in the game. the DPS is unmatched if you get a good one and the ammo isn't that expensive.


ColdIron27

yea, but it shreds through that ammo in 5 seconds. Certainly, you get more shots, but much more bang for your buck with a pump. You get 14x damage per bullet if you can hit them all. For the big creatures, this is godly. 14 time x amount of damage x 6 = 84 times weapon damage per clip. Meanwhile, an ar holds 40 shots x weapon damage. The damage on the pump shotty for the same amount of damage is over double that of the ar. Also, you save a lot of weight, since every shotgun bullet is effectively 14 because it's a shotgun. And weight is something you really have to be careful of when you run a dungeon. It also completely negates the spread, which is the only real problem with the pump shotty: it's unreliable when aiming. But it's range is actually really good, you can shoot a boss from across the room and still end up hitting. Usually, a pump shotty, sword or pike, and *maybe* a comp bow is all you need for a dungeon run. In raiding and anything else, you're better off just using tames to do the dps. Also, the AR also fits few situations besides dps. For accurate shooting, you have the rifle, compound bow, and advanced rifle. Besides dps, the pump shotty also takes care of multiple enemies at once.

There is guns in ark????


Weird-Contact1800

Yeah and there are simple pistols at first and then the real stuff


Frosty_Suggestion_84

I knew that but seriously??? Does it become a FPS after a while?


Weird-Contact1800

Yes…and no


Frosty_Suggestion_84

Why

Well I would say that the AR is better than the pump for the Bosses in the dungeons. Yes most of the bosses can be dealt with using the pump but I think that the AR is better for dealing with the Argentustus and the Dodobiticus.


ColdIron27

Yes, but it's worse overall. Like I said, the weight problem. For the doedi or argent boss, it's much easier to use a compound bow, which when you get a good one (from tributing artifact of the strong) doesn't require you to craft. Plus, you get much more damage per arrow, which while are expensive, aren't really a problem when you're at dungeon running and saves a lot of weight. Weight is a major factor to consider, because when running a dungeon, being slow means you're screwed in some of the rooms. So you either need to a. Pump weight which slows you down or b. bring less of other stuff. this really limits you, which means you need to keep things as light as possible while still being able to deal the damage you need to deal. The problem with the ar is that you need to bring a shitton of bullets, and most of those are going to miss. let's compare a 150 dmg ar, 150 dmg shotty, and 600 dmg compound bow(This is generally the most common dmg on my compound bows that I pull, but usually I try to go for 1000 dmg +). metal arrows are 0.4 w, shotty rounds are 0.1, and ar rounds are 0.1 as well. right here, we see the difference: shotty rounds are 14x more weight efficient than ar rounds. And metal arrows of a compound bow have the same weight efficiency as the ar, plus you are much less likely to miss, or in the case of the doedi boss, hit the shell and loose dmg, as long as you're accuracy is good.
