You know, there are a few things that can happen in Horde matches that are rare, but when they happen they feel so good, it almost makes me love Gears again.
I was recently playing Clayton with reflect and reflect shredder turned on, and I reflected a drop shot round from a Scion. I don’t know if this always happens in such a case, but the drop shot round hit the Scion like it was a critical head hit, that created an explosion so big it killed 9 enemies (between the initial explosion and the bleeding damage from it).
Do reflected explosives get magnified? I swear reflected boomshot rounds, my personal favorite before this happened, seem to do far more damage than if I’m playing JD and I just shoot a boomshot round myself.
But reflecting drop shot rounds is now my #2 favorite thing in Horde, with #1 still being catching a pouncer with a chainsaw (that always just feels great).
