Psychopath quirk mechanics?

Post by LeaFlamma » May 17th, 2016, 6:40 am

How does it actually work? In the weapons list topic, it's said that each bulet from a burst procs it, but does that mean that any bulets missing will reset it as well? The SMGs fire in 4-5 rounds bursts. If 3 bullets hit and the 4th misses, is the quirk counted anew? Or is it enough for one bullet to hit and any other hits are just a bonus without the risk of losing stacks? What if the first bullet misses and the rest make it into the target? That's one of the few quirks that got me puzzled.

As far as I know, yes. A missed round from an SMG, AF, or heavy weapon burst will reset the quirk. I don't believe it counts shotgun pellets though, because that would be dumb.

Thanks for the info, seems SMG is still the way to go with tbis quirk. The point blank bonus accuracy will allow to negate the accuracy loss.
