We need functional L items, thats what we need to actualy focus on wanting.
This is a long time debate... defining "trash".
people pay for GrindHouse, Swine, ELM items Throwing ped away so the definition of "trash item" is pretty personal.
an ARMatrix weapon decay impacts at 120% for 1.5% of bullet cost that means you pay 101.5 your hunting.
that is for sure profitable in some conditions and is nto in others.
let's see a 66% eff 3 DPP UL item cost. (common item, archon sword)
this item cost about 3000 ped and does not use ammo
for skilling some Melee (add some HP pool as most of player do) 3000 /0.015 = 200.000 ped decay in sword, with a costant progress in DPS due to a 5 level ladder
most of player dont use for so long time a sword
if we calculate the cost of a LP120 (offered on forum at 105k) the use of an armatrix is covered by 7m ped shot... many players will NEVER SHOT 7m of ammo in their full game lifetime
CHIPS are even better, they impact for 4% on a bullet and command 105% MU so the cost of hunting is 100.2% or 100.3%
if you see an ASI TEN selling for 15k it is totally worth to use an Armatrix for low volume hunters or progressing hunters on a budget
If you refer to ISIS dropeed, yes, their decay is too fast (and they sell for lower than armatrix)
Cyrebe dropped weapons are simply filler to be sold at TT
Arkadia ones are nice (the machinegun that accept dante)
no experience of Toulan
i think NI drops no weapon, just crystals (that are just to craft unsellable tailoring items)
