Is the Alpha-Omega good in Remnant 2?
Alpha-Omega is exceptional and one of the best weapons in Remnant 2. It shines in medium-ranged combat and acts like a pulse rifle, firing five quick burst shots and with the mod equipped is able to extend its potential to deal AOE damage.
It capitalizes on using its unique passive of dealing penetrative damage through charged attacks providing a 10% damage boost for 1.5s while reducing charge time by 0.1s if it connects with the enemy.
Its personal damage is on the lower side but makes up for it due to its high firing rate and target accuracy with respectable magazine capacity making it reliable and easier to get a hang of.
It provides a 10% Critical Chance with 100% Weak Spot Damage and an ideal damage range of 24m with a generous 70m range for AOE damage.
The exclusive mod for Alpha-Omega is Beta Ray which is a significant upgrade to an already good weapon. It leaves a mark on an enemy, termed Brand, which explodes upon reloading or swapping out the weapon.
These Brands deal initial explosive damage with splash damage to nearby enemies and additionally, if enemies fall while being marked, they will return 5-10% ammo back and leave a Brand behind in their place.
The drawbacks it faces are its availability and performance. In the case of performance, the main issues are it provides no modifier for Stagger and has low damage, both of which can be countered by choosing the right gear to cover the caveats.
For availability, it cannot be accessed in the first play-through of the game and is only for those who will pass the hardest trial of defeating Annihilation.
This combination of power, speed, and accuracy will prove to be a rewarding choice for players who choose to wield it.
