Question regarding Zarya's max Beam DPS


#1

“Max Beam DPS lowered from 190 to 170”
Does that mean that the base DPS is still 95? Meaning you simply don’t get bonus DPS above 79% charge?
Is her secondary fire affected as well?

Or did you change her base DPS changed to 85 and scales just like before?


#2

Yup, base DPS is still 95 per second, (4.75 per round)

100% charge now only grants a +79% damage increase, and RC is affected.

Entire Clip - 100 rounds - [0/100%]
Live: 475/950
PTR: 475/850


#3

tldr:

0 charge = 98.8 DPS.
~100 charge = 176.79 DPS.

It looks to me like they decreased the damage gain per charge from ~1% per point to ~0.7% per point.


#4

Is the secondary fire affected as well?


#5

Or rather, +0.95 DPS per energy to +0.75 DPS per energy.


#6

No, it’s just the primary.


#7

No?

Why not? Doesn’t the right click scales with energy as well?


#8

Emphasis on “Primary Fire.”
