I have two weapons. A two shot .44 revolver, not the crappy single action one. Then I have a two shot Tesla Rifle. BASE DAMAGE ALONE, my pistol says it does 30 or so more damage than the rifle.
I have Gunslinger perks.
The tesla rifle is doing more damage per firing then my pistol…I'm a gunslinger build, I have NOTHING that boosts energy or rifle damage.
It became more viable for me to shoot enemies with a Tesla Rifle than a two shot pistol while having a pistol build. This has been true for a number of weapons that were two shot but lower base damage than my pistol.
I shouldn't HAVE to run a bloodied pistol build to out damage a non-bloodied weapon that I am not built for. Which runs into the issue that a pistol of ANY LEGENDARY EFFECT will be out damaged by the same legendary effect of ANY OTHER WEAPON.
I"m not saying a pistol should outdamage a shotgun, or a gatling gun. I'm saying the pistol build is hardly viable to use AT ALL until you're running Plasma Thrower which ironically does A LOT of damage. I don't count that though, that's not a pistol despite the game saying it is, that's a flamethrower. That's like calling the flamer a rifle.
Energy pistols seem to be doing better than the ballistic versions, but still behind everything else. Once again, this isn't a matter of "something is always going to be the weakest of the group" it's a matter that pistols overall are no where near viable as weapons to use. Their damage is too low, the reload speed for the ballistics is atrocious, ESPECIALLY the single action or black powder, the magazine size is too small, .44 have little to NO mods (which is part of an OVERALL problem of the game, ewapons having little to no mods, but COMPLETE SHIT weapons NOBODY WILL EVER USE having a dozen or more mods like the walking cane.)
Just want to raise awareness , in the small hope someone at Bethesda sees this and goes "hmm, maybe we take an hour to look at the problem with pistols." If there was a viable respec option, maybe i wouldn't complain as much, but I definitely wouldn't want to have to respect out of what i like and want to play because it's that bad.
And for a final time to drive it home, this isn't a "use what's viable and meta in events if you want to do good, duh", it's that pistols are not even viable in open world content just fucking around compared to other guns past level 50. Mole rats just about die to me within the 6 round magazine until four of those shots are in the skull with VATS.
