Additionally, it was underperforming when compared to similar items.SemiAuto Sniper RifleAvailability from floor loot reduced from 0.65% to 0.44%Availability from chests reduced from 5.1% to 3.4%FlintKnock PistolAvailability from floor loot reduced from 1.97% to 1.32%Infantry RifleIncreased the Epic and Legendary Infantry Rifle clip size from 8 to 10MinigunIncreased player damage from 18/19 to 20/21DrumGunReduced clip size from 50 to 40Reduced fire rate from 9 to 8Since the unvaulting, the Drum Gun has outperformed in unintended areas. This adjustment should help create more counterplay in combat.Heavy Assault RifleIncreased damage from 36/38/40 to 38/40/42The Heavy Assault Rifle usage rates aren’t quite where we’d like. This adjustment to Damage is intended to offset some of the downsides of the weapon.
