  • Top row describes 12 bullets distributed across a 1342° firing arc.
    • In practice, this manifests as 3 sets of 4 bullets distributed across 18° firing arcs, with one arc firing straight backward (180° counter-clockwise from the aim direction) and the other two arcs firing at 58° clockwise and counter-clockwise from the aim direction.
  • Bottom row describes single large bullet fired in the aim direction.

Commentary

  • Compared to Tyrian Stinger (T10 Wasp), T10 Tiger Whisker fires 49 bullets per second (rather than T10 Wasp's 12 bullets per second) and shoots them in 4 distinct directions (rather than T10 Wasp's 3 distinct directions). However, it has ~38% reduced range, and the wide and flipped firing pattern makes it difficult to land shots on multiple small targets simultaneously.
    • Without upgrades, T10 Tiger Whisker's forward shot deals ~181% more damage than one shot of Tyrian Stinger, and the SPEC weapon's 12-burst deals ~30% less damage than Tyrian Stinger's 3-burst. Overall optimal DPS is ~6% less than that of T10 Wasp.
    • With maxed elemental damage upgrades, T10 Tiger Whisker's forward shot deals ~151% more damage than one shot of Tyrian Stinger, and the SPEC weapon's 12-burst deals ~37% less damage than Tyrian Stinger's 3-burst. Overall optimal DPS is ~16% less than that of T10 Wasp.
