Pistols: The Shrinking Gap
Things like the Jolt and Triad make the mid-sized blasters a tough sell. My Triad, for instance, can hit anything my Strongarm can. Sure it has half the capacity, but it's also one third the size. If the Strongarm is powerful enough to be used as a Primary, so can this little hairdryer lookalike blaster, right?
There's a clear shrinking gap for larger "sidearm" sized pistols and blasters that, in my opinion, leaves them in the dark. For the same performance but smaller size, you can go with an Elite Jolt, Triad, Firestrike, or Proton. For the same size and better performance, you can go with a Stryfe, Retaliator, or Diatron. These facts make me wonder ... why bother with blasters like the Strongarm?
