Ive switched to handcannons now, just as fun hitting headshots but if i were to ever find a really good scout rifle I may go back.
ah so far im just a lv18 i know it becomes a weakness against the really strong guys like knights unless i get alot of fast head shots.
On trash a scout is lethal and quick but unless you have a great weapon with elemental damage to drop shields your scout becomes usless in a room full of shielded creatures. You just cant poke your head out and pop off shots fast enough to kill even one shielded before taking massive damage and ducking for cover. By the time you recover they have full shields again. I had to be carried through the vog to get my first decent primary with elemental damage. I felt horrible the whole time in that game because i provided no assistance.
At least my team knew before going in that i was a charity case and were ok with it. Imo save up all the materials you can get your hands on from dismantling armour (greens/blues-buy them if you must just to break down) and dont worry too much about getting complimentary gear, just get to thirty any way you can and get carried in raids to get the gear and weapons. Armour is more important atm as no one accept you into a raid if your just getting one shotted, there are other ways of providing useful assistance beyond damage output from weapons. The best stuff is from raids, just get yourself to 30 and most will forgive you for you poor weapons. Constantly dieing helps no one
