    Somebody either copied info wrong, or it is going to be very useless......

    When the hull bonuses and special's boosts are factored in, the weapon's sliver of range will thicken. 
    2 Months ago it was just a finger, then it was two. Last month it was the fist, and last week to the elbow....

    This.

    It is basically limiting the usefulness to the Basilisk. Same with the Dark Cloud Mortar.

    Funny how some act like its a doomsday hull and then think that built-in limitations are errors.

    It sure speaks volumes for the average game knowledge across the forums.  Might go with sad over funny though, but that's just me.

    75 and 76. It might be 2 range values. But a difference of 1

    Add your 30% missile range special and it should increase

    75 + 30% = 97.5
    76 + 30% = 98.8

    97.5 - 98.8 is difference of 1.3.

    As templar said.. it did thicken. By 0.3 from 1. From 1 to 1.3

    If you want to use pen scope as well that will be an increase of 0.39. From 1 to 1.39

    75 + 39% = 104.25
    76 + 39% = 105.64

    105.64 - 104.25 = 1.39

    Still precision attacking. Blitz a channel without being able to kill whs and turrets as they will all be inside minimum range and be untargetable.. so wont bubble base. Great bounty strategy. Go striaght to op without worrying about doing enough damage to cause a bubble.
    I know one or 2 specific top alliance players that will take advantage of this.
    As ive now given the secret away i might as well build 2 like this and 1 mortar one to kill op from the rim if the missile ones fail hehe.

    Range increases don't increase the minimum range though.  So in actuality you end up with a fairly decent size donut.

    The minimum range stays at 75. It does not increase when adding range extending buffs.

    Aah. Oh course. Ty templar.

    I forgot minimum doesnt extend.

    75 - 76 with no specials
    75 - 98.5 with a 30% special
    75 - 105.64 with scope as well.

    That should visualise it for the community

    This. In the old days, it was a thing. Minimum used to increase too. But it got changed. IIRC, any way. I think it used to be a thing.

    Wrong Stat, actually. Redundant would be if it listed the same thing twice. 

    Just saying.


    Sorry for the Grammar Nazi impulse!!!!!!!
