Drop Guide

Notes

  • It is possible to interrupt The Chopper with a melee attack, reloading or switching guns.
  • It is impossible for any ammo regeneration bonuses to keep up with the fire rate of the gun.
  • When combined with a Heavy Gunner + team members with Support Gunner/Centurion class mods + Roland's Overload and Assault skills, the magazine can hold more than 1120 combat rifle bullets with the maximum combat rifle SDU.
  • Because of The Chopper's special effect, it's possible to start firing the gun, and then sprint in the desired direction while the gun continues to fire.
  • The Chopper seems to have a rarer drop cycle than most boss-specific guns do. It is an uncommon drop from Motorhead but may be farmed.

Trivia

  • The red text is a palindromic and onomatopoeic representation of a revving engine.
  • The Chopper with an RoF? of 18.0 takes only twelve and a half seconds to fire 1120 rounds.

Mechanics

The Chopper effect comes from the acc4_TheChopper accessory. This part is solely responsible for all of The Chopper's characteristics, and is loosely based on acc4_Deathly. The Chopper is made of Material_TheChopper_3, which is equivalent to Material_Vladof_3. The Chopper's only part restriction is the magazine, which must be mag4 or mag5 (not mag2 or mag5_VladofRevolution). Please see stat modifiers for an explanation on how to interpret all of these modifiers.
