-Rejoice Zymos fans like me! This Gun is back from the depths of hell!
-This is a build focused solely on the homing spores.
-Homing Spores have innate 6.0 Multishot that is unaffected by mods. Initial Projectiles are affected though.
-This thing only works properly if you're solo. Even if you're the host in a multiplayer, it still bugs and doesn't explode sometimes.
-It's super strong but it's not a General Use weapon and requires some specific load out to truly shine so it's unpopular.
Mods in this Build:
Galvanized Shots- Homing Spores Contact have multiplicative Math with GunCO
Hemorrhage- Homing Spores Contact and Headshot Explosion has Forced Impact Procs
Galvanized Diffusion- Increases the initial projectiles. More initial projectiles more homing spores supposedly.
Primed Pistol Gambit, Galvanized Crosshairs, Primed Target Cracker- CC CD bonuses are applied squared. Flat Crit bonuses are applied twice. If you're also using Arcane Avenger, at max stacks of [Galvanized Crosshairs] + Avenger Proc, you'll get about 502% CC(Guaranteed Tier 5 crits). [Galvanized Crosshairs] stacks and Deadhead stacks are easily maintained so hitting that tier 5 crits and slash procs is realistic and not hypothetical.
Frostbite- for viral because Homing Spores Explosion has innate toxin but Change accordingly on faction your're facing. Pure toxin vs corpus for example.
Primed Expel Grineer- Change accordingly for what you're facing.
Eject Magazine- This thing has abyssmal reload speed so I prefer holstering instead of outright reloading. But if you prefer reloading, Use [Terminal Velocity] here or [Energizing Shot](It shouldn't work on paper but surprisingly works). Also hit your reload button immediately when your mag hits 0 because it has a delay but hitting reload prevents that delay.
Sharpened Bullets- 18.7x Crit Multiplier combined with Primed Target Cracker
Creeping Bullseye- Lower Drain and a bit more crit chance but not flexible to my other builds because it has Naramon Polarity and I dislike the -20% Fire rate.
Hornet Strike- Much more reliable if you're also relying using Headshot Explosions instead of just Homing spores
Seeker- Most say it's great and makes Homing Spores hit heads multiple times before exploding. I'd rather have the PT on my Riven instead of using this because it has too much drain and adding a Naramon Polarity will make my other builds hard to fit in.
-Dual Crit with harmless neg or Dual Crit with Elem Preferably Cold if you're using viral always/Puchthrough Harmless neg.
-This is only for the Homing Spores. MS or DMG is also nice as long there's atleast 1 or 2 Crit stats with it.
-Getting a Dual Crit with Cold and replacing [Frostbite] in the build will get you 716% CC and 23.75x CD after calculations assuming the riven have perfect grades on the CC CD.
-IF CC CD Neg and replacing [Primed Pistol Gambit] you'll get 565% CC and 29x CD with perfect grades. My Riven is 183.2 CC 107CD 3.2PT Negative Puncture. Not Really shitty grades but only have 498% CC which is a a bit saddening when replacing PPG. I want 500% lol. Atleast 184.8%CC is needed 500%+. 184.7% will get you 499.95% XD.
