Default Question about Colossus

Hi, I'd like to colossus my arctic blast. One question: is it worth it? what does it do? the guide doesn't say and is kind of negative about it.

Default Re: Question about Colossus

The arctic blast is decent, but a collossus mod for it would increase the power by about 2x or so. I have never actually collossused my FF, but it should make both blasts much more powerful, and have more range as well. It is up to you whether or not it is worth it, but you should keep cost in mind.

Default Re: Question about Colossus

A couple of things to bear in mind:

One is that too 'heavy' a colossus results in being unable to fill the pressure chamber as the pressure-release valve (PRV) opens. You can disable the PRV, and many people do, but bear in mind that's disabling a safety feature and makes the gun more easily broken.

A second is that a colossus necessarily reduces the pressure chamber's capacity. The Arctic Blast has a small PC as it is (smaller than that in the Flash Flood IIRC).

With both these points in mind, I'd suggest doing a light one to begin with, like just one or two bike tubes.
