Weapon Grinding FAQ
Message Author
Post: #1

I'll try to outline the most efficient way to grow weapons. Information here has been compiled from various guides.

1. Buy around 7 or 8 pieces of the weapon you intend to grow.

2. List down all the base stats for the particular weapon.

3. Use the charts in the link below to determine the weapon's max stats for whichever tuning affinity.

4. Equip your new weapons on a heavy biped or tank. Preferably 4x of the same weapon.

5. Go to Marine Facility, Mission Order 6 (AC Flame Fly). Just GB toward him and kill him in one kick. There's also a HEAT rocket method for this. Should be done in less than 10 seconds.

6. Check your weapons for their growth rates. Growth rates are 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x, and 9x. That's how many times you'll need to use a weapon to max it out. You can tell which type by the progress on the performance bar.
- 5x = 2 boxes
- 6x = Around 1.7 boxes
- 7x = Just a little less than 1.5 boxes
- 8x = Just a little beyond the first box, or around 1.2 boxes
- 9x = Exactly 1 box

7. Calculate the weapon's progression for any stat by using this formula:
[(new stat - base stat) x (growth rate)] + base stat = final stat

8. If you calculate that a particular weapon will grow close to the max stat you're aiming for, then just max it out, and you're done. If not, replace with new weapons and repeat the steps.

Enjoy.

EDIT: Yes, this will still apply, despite balance changes.

ah~ growing weapons. the bane of my enjoyment on playing online.

i hope the new tuning system is what i think it is (no more MMO randomness [ain't nobody got time fo dat] imbalances [i mean really? an arachide that is power spec that has no reload rate consequences and has an EN consumption consequence 3x lower than a typical power spec'd one?{my goodness}], just pure vanilla customization like everybody else)
