This fire rate penalty of this mod can be easily counteracted with Lethal Torrent, resulting in a 40% increase in fire rate.
The fire rate penalty can also be useful on weapons which already have a high fire rate and decent critical chance if the user does not want to fire in bursts to conserve ammunition, making the addition of Lethal Torrent on said weapon builds more viable.
The fire rate penalty supports Hemorrhage's low fire rate bonus.
Creeping Bullseye has been given a buff to their Critical Chance from +48% to +187%.
These new Mods (Internal Bleeding and Hemorrhage) have a greater effect if Fire Rate is below 2.5, and this buff brings a synergy between these Mods. As a result, Creeping Bullseye can no longer be equipped with Pistol Gambit.
