For some reason, the latest shipment of Lootboxes seems a little… odd. Some weapons seem to be showing signs of behaviour outside of their normal operating conditions with performance statistics showing much higher than usual. These “corrupt weapons”, as they have come to be known, when investigated, appear to have been under-clocked in order to reach maximum effectiveness in certain areas. Make sure to keep an eye out for any modified weapons in Lootboxes, as you could be holding a weapon beyond the understanding of any terrorist.
Corrupt weapons are here! Multiple people have suggested the idea of debuffing weapons in favour of buffing other stats in the past, but thanks to @Janice for the name and sparking my imagination to create them.
Corrupt weapons are a sub-tier of weapon that have a chance to be produced when opening lootboxes. Every time you unbox a weapon there is a small chance it will become “corrupt” and gain a debuff of up to 55%. 55% of the power of that debuff is then taken and applied to one stat randomly, increasing the power of a stat beyond the usual limits. With corrupt weapons a single stat can reach an 85% buff. Corrupt weapons can range anywhere from completely useless to straight up overpowered, so get unboxing!
