    Little advice about your first hunting setup

    Just fyi since some newbies might have missed this in the last update. Go get your free rifle from the Bukin guy at Camp Icarus, it's a very decent weapon for starters.

    Bukin's Spare Rifle

    3-6 damage, 44 attacks/min and 57.2m range.

    It is bound to your account but it's free so go get it even if you have another rifle, you never know when it will come handy. Now some comparisons:

    Code:
    						AMPLIFIER
    	RIFLE			Omegaton A101			ZX Sinkadus				O2's Comment
    Bukin's Spare Rifle		4.59 dps @ 2.980 eco		4.08 dps @ 2.959 eco 	(Best rifle skiller without the gold pack)
    Sollomate Opalo			5.61 dps @ 2.861 eco		5.10 dps @ 2.834 eco 	(Bad eco has made this rifle obsolete)
    Z12 Barbarella			6.67 dps @ 2.955 eco		6.12 dps @ 2.938 eco 	(Best ul rifle for starters)
    Omegaton M2100A1 (L)			DO NOT USE		5.68 dps @ 2.981 eco 	(Good dps and eco combo)
    Sollomate Onyxo (L)		5.10 dps @ 2.968 eco		4.59 dps @ 2.948 eco 	(I would use the Bukin Rifle)
    Ozpyn Chon			6.98 dps @ 2.974 eco 		6.21 dps @ 2.953 eco 	(Requires level 5, the M2100A1 is better)
    Ozpyn LR S1X1			7.09 dps @ 2.924 eco		6.50 dps @ 2.905 eco 	(Requires level 5, the barbarella is better)
    DPS = Damage per second (dmg/sec), higher is better.
    ECO = Damage per pec (dmg/pec), higher is better. It includes ammo burn and weapon decay.

    As you can see the Opalo sucks compared to the rest. The barbarella and M2100A1 combo is awesome, but if you can't purchase the Gold Pack just get the Bukin rifle and tag with it.

    Also, choose the right mob for the right weapon. At higher levels it's not a big concern but at your leve it's very important. With weapons in the range of 4-7 dps I wouldn't kille anything bigger than small kerberos (young-mature). Berycleds and foul are cool too.

    Bookmark entropiawiki.com and also the Weapon Compare.

    Kick him. Seriously. Get someone who can keep up with the current state of the game.

    Good luck, have fun .

    nicely done, and shows the opollo up for what is.

    i do wonder why MA always push Laser and mainly Rifle too, will cause an unbalance in MU prices, altho a Knife was a little bit of a big jump in for new players who think the Durability stat is vital, it gave hp skills and another direction to go

    + rep. Very helpful and cuts a lot of the bullshit new players are being given to persuade them to buy an opalo.

    Nice job. I still won't ditch my opalo, even if I don't use it much anymore. It was my first gun and I've become attached to it.

    But yeah, the new newbie guns have greater eco than the Opalo

    It's also worth noting that Bukin's Spare Rifle have better range than other newbie rifles. I used to keep my Opalo in inventory because of it's range, but now Bukin's Spare Rifle took it's place. Also, the Bukin's Spare Rifle comes with 5TT value that will last a few shots, so even if you don't plan on using it, you can shoot a bunch of times paying only for (economical) ammo consumption.

    Overall a very nice change compared to Bukin's Knife (which you got to keep anyway, if you got it earlier :P)
