The Volcano ignites the target, who then sets other nearby enemies on fire, who then...etc. The fire damage is supposedly higher than normal for a x4 elemental. Too bad the base damage is so low. And the scope sucks. This is a weapon I'd probably only use if Mike's around to act as a meatshield to enable effective midrange sniping; otherwise I'd probably stick with a revolver.
Kyros' Power has only one fault. It's a decent base damage (good) high accuracy (good) explosive sniper (100% guaranteed procs = good) with red text that translates to Transfusion-style health leeching (GOOD) but it has a fucking 1.0x scope, which is essentially worthless. At the range where headshots are possible, the enemies can hit you back and fuck up your aiming. I guess the idea for these sorts of weapons is to aim center mass and let the explosion proc do the bulk of the damage, but I like the visceral pleasure of seeing skulls disappear.
2) 9x146 is the heaviest hitting shotgun I've seen yet. Ammo regen and fast reload make up for the 2-shot clip. I might hang onto this if Mike or Ryan don't claim it.
3) Or I might use this instead. 82 accuracy shotgun with a high explosive proc and a massive clip.
4) Also viable.
5) I don't know why I hung onto this one (the absurdly large scope?) but it's vendor fodder.
