SPECTRA VANDAL builds

Builds by THeMooN85

Hello there,

Spectra Vandal is simply upgraded version of regular Spectra so basically every Spectra build will be better with Vandal.

My build focused on dealing elemental damage with decent for a pistol status chance to proc. Radiation is highly effective against the Alloy Armor worn by many high-level Grineer units, Corpus Robotics and larger Eidolon , but is penalized against Corpus Shields and most Infested foes.

Contrary to most projectile and hitscan-based weapons, in continuous weapons, the additional "pellets" spawned by Multishot do not generate additional instances of damage, but instead merges into the main beam's damage ticks allowing each regular tick interval (based on the weapon's fire rate) a chance to roll bonus damage in multiples of itself, similar to how Critical Hits function with a 2.0x multiplier.

Because the amount of damage ticks overall does not increase, having Multishot on these weapons will not increase the amount of Status Effect proc chances per ammo fired.

This potentially makes mods like ​Hammer Shot​ more effective than ​Vigilante Armaments​ for continuous weapons.

Critical multiplier also benefits off of Multishot damage, as Crit is calculated after Multishot damage.

Enjoy, THeMooN85
