    So, popular opinion among the higher ups, myself included, is that the Gatling gun is a bit of a letdown. Wimpy, annoying zoom during sustained fire, clip reload glitches... the list goes on. This here item sets out to be what the Gatling gun could have been.

    Weapon: Burst Cannon (red, slot points 2)
    Burst Cannon has a clip size of three cannonballs, each dealing slightly less damage than a similarly leveled sniper cannon, and with a less ridiculous crit chance. The cannon behaves like a burst assault rifle, requiring a single button press to immediately discharge all three cannonballs before entering a reload period slightly longer than a sniper's. Due to the high discharge rate, cannonballs generally strike about the same spot on the enemy. The range would be slightly higher than the base range of a Blast Cannon, while still being less than the sniper's base (obviously). Another side effect of the Burst Cannon is a new debuff. Due to striking the same point rapidly, the enemy is made "vulnerable," meaning that the next shot that hits them has a slightly higher chance to crit. Talents focus on range, damage of cannonballs, reload time, damage to burning, and increasing the crit chance boost left by a successful hit.

    Nice, +1! I was thinking of a twoslot that has .75 of the damage of a blast cannon and has two bullets, the "double whammy". But burst rifle is pretty damn cool!
