Weapon Categories in The Surge 2

Weapons in The Surge 2 are equipment that players use to deal damage to enemies. There are 9 main categories of melee weapons, which can be swapped on the fly via the game's systems, and upgraded to enhance their capabilities. Much like Dark Souls, weapons in The Surge 2 can block damage, have parameters and elemental capabilities.

Twin-Rigged

Twin-Rigged weapons provide fast attacks that allow players to quickly get in and out of combat. They consume a moderate amount of stamina and deal considerable damage.

      biggest issues with weapons are a hold over the devs have never realized from previous games. Slow weapons NEED to do more damage than fast, precise, and more stamina efficient weapons.

      Hammers, Single Rigged, Heavy Duty and Double Duty weapon classes are mostly irrelevant and new players should be warned against them or get the wrong impression of the combat system.

      They have some decent moves here and there and of course someone can bare to game the system enough to complete a game with nearly anything. Plenty of people may have a favorite weapon in the slow and sluggish weapon groups too, and the have painstakingly learned how to circumvent that with clever slides, parry strikes, or even unlocked camera angles. Sure. Ok. But why bother?

      There simply is no bonus to using an extremely slow and cumbersome weapon like a huge Hammer your character struggles to wield when super fast swords and a plethora punchy weapons exist. All too often the faster weapons will hit for more damage than the slower weapons too! And while weapon impact is neat, all too often bosses simply will not care either way. But also constant barrage of a spear or fist will stun lock a normal enemy anyway, regardless of its "inferior" impact rating so slow weapons dont have much purpose here either.

      Anyway I would love if The Surge 3 made "Great Weapons" actually great.

        Question to damage calculation: I have tested a few things and i'm totally confused. I have attacked the same minions with the same attack. Both weapons are One handed and both are MK 3. One time with "Warrens Well used Cutter" and then with "Strongarm Twin Blade". I do more damage with the Strongarm although the cutter has 146 damage and the strongarm has only 133? Furthermore i asked myself: What does elemental damage exactly? Is 23 fire damage the damage of a tick (and does nothing until the minion is burning) or does it mean how fast a minion is getting the burn status? What about nano and electricity? Does a weapon with electricity more damage or is the electro value only calculated to the stun effect? Same with nano?

            Does anyone else think it's wrong that some of the weapons in these categories, appear to conduct electricity but don't deal that type of elemental damage? For that matter shouldn't all the categories have weapons, for each form of elemental damage instead of one or two?
