  • Since the visual overhaul this weapon has literally nothing in common with the Ogris anymore, and as such the page should be edited to reflect that. The Lanka is more similar to the Ogris than Torid is now.

    Torid does not charge, the projectile does not fly in a straight line, the blast radius is diminutive and impact damage is nowhere near the Ogris'. Comparing it to the Ogris is misleading to readers.

    • A launcher with slow fire rate, ridiculous ammo efficiency and only usefull for specific type of games... yeah, nothing similar.

    • Then why is it not called the Infested version of the Penta? Or the Ogris the Grineer version of such? Why is Soma not called the Tenno version of the Grakata? There's no need to draw comparisons like that. Even weapons used in the same application can be vastly different from one another, as is the case here.

    • That description is probably just a hold over from when the two shared a model, and so it appeared to actually be an Ogris that had been Infested. Now, that doesn't appear to be the case.

    • I have updated the description for the torid to reflect the changes.  Thank you for posting about it, and I hope your issues with the page have been resolved.

    • Why is it still considered a hybrid weapon?

      If you look closely at the middle of the gun, you can see a few Grineer bits sticking out of the Infested growth.

    • Does that not mean that every infested weapon is a hybrid?

    • Not really; the Dual Ichor, Scoliac, Tysis, Mire, Embolist, Phage and Synapse look more like Infested organisms engineered for their given purposes, with no (outward) artificial components on them.

      In hindsight, the Acrid would probably count as a Hybrid weapon, seeing as it uses a Grineer gun frame.

    • Actually if you look carefully Scoliac has a non-biological-looking hilt as well XD Someone once theorized that infested weapons are just normal tenno (or someother faction's) weapons 'infected' with the technocyte virus.

      Acrid actually makes a lot more sense as a Grineer/Infested hybrid. The Seer was a Grineer weapon combined with Orokin technology. This would imply that the hybridization was delibrate as an 'upgrade' to the weapon.

      Still I think without proper in-game description and lore of the weapon you can't simply categorize a weapon as hybrid or not :/

    • Eh true. So maybe we should play it safe and only label hybrid weapons as such if we can easily see it. Benefit of the doubt and all. (assuming I'm using that idiom correctly...)

    • lol I think benefit of the doubt is more the opposite of what you mean XD It means you want to give weapons the hybrid status even though you are not sure of its hybridity (is that a word? lol). From my understanding anyway XD
