Here’s my current relic tier list. I play Porcs, Bugs, Flash and Helicons
Regular Clan Wars/PVP
S+ Scorpion. This is still the best. I thought it would be bad after three nerfs but my friends still seem to be killing and degunning everything with it.
S Firebug Flash. This completely dominates Scorpions. Firebugs are more versatile than other melee because they aren’t stopped by a train plow and you don’t have to have a perfect burn to win. The increase of durability for Firebugs and Flash as well as the lowering of Icarus VII hover and loss of speed of Icarus VII have put Firebug in its current position.
S- Mastodon. These have been killing lately. They have a huge blast radius and a ton of bullet damage. They completely engulf small builds and have put Thor generator out of business.
A+ Punisher. These are still good. I don’t care what anyone says. They have a lot of degunning power. Also, unlike Nothungs and Arbiters, they don’t need a lot of coolers and radiators so you can have room for radars, especially the Verifier. This makes you much better against rush builds.
B Porcupines. These have their uses, but the repeated nerfs to Kapkans and the speed nerf to Echo cabin have hit Porcs hard.
B Helicons. These are quite powerful on the right build and used by a good rocket player on a map with some hiding places. If you don’t have those things, they don’t work very well. I have an Omamori and a train plow to protect mine and they can take some serious hits. They could use a perk boost as the perk rarely becomes a factor in any match.
C Typhoons. These are weak and don’t hit hard enough to be taken seriously.
C Jormungandr. These hit hard but are too easy to degun to be taken seriously. I can degun a whole deck of Jorgs in 1-2 Helicon volleys. I think that Kronos might really help these.
C- Breaker. These don’t do much damage and are easier to degun than Hammerfalls. I usually beat these in my Cyclone hover.
D. Ripper. These don’t do much and are easy to degun.
S+ Ripper. These murder levis better than any other weapon and you can decide wins by how many Ripper saws are on the enemy team. Ripper saws take all AI focus off everyone else. Also, they stop a levi and make them lose all forward momentum. This is serious because most levis have a difficult time gaining speed. Also, it doesn’t take very many saws to completely deframe an enemy levi and win the game. No gun does more in levi wars.
S Flash. These are a mainstay of levi wars either with Porcupines or as a stand alone weapon. These royally mess up levis on both sapping the reload and by causing a loss of engine power.
A+ Porcupines. These hit levis hard but most of the damage comes from sitting in Porc fire. If you can get a levi to stop for any reason, a Levi can die in 3 volleys in about 8 seconds.
A+ Punisher These have a field day in Levi wars degunning favorite levi wars weapons, such as Ripper, Flash, Toadfish, Scorpion, Porcupine, Imp and Athena.
A- Helicon These do big damage and add heating. When placed on a levi, the AI makes them never miss and they hit like a truck as well as increasing the damage of all other weapons.
B+ Scorpion A crack degunner on Scorpions has a great place in levi wars.
B+ Jormungandr. These can wipe out an entire deck of levi weapons with heating. I think they are going to be good with an Aegis and the new Kronos cab, but I want to see it.
B Breaker. These are good on chunky builds to degun Levis and the sort of flimsy weapons used in Levi wars.
B Firebug Blight is too flimsy for levi wars and builds tend to bounce off of levis without doing significant damage. They murder hover levis most foully, but hover levis are rare.
B Mastodon Spiders are generally too slow for levi wars unless you have a full spider team with massive hit points. Then they can be quite good, as they can heat a huge area. The perk of the Pegasus cabin may really help Mastodon shine as it allows spiders with massive amounts of Goliath tracks to still function.
D Typhoon. These shoot too slow and do too little damage for levi wars. Maybe they’d be good on a Hadron, King, Flywheel Gerrida spider, but I haven’t seen this build in the hands of a good player and don’t know if it would actually be effective.
