Hey guys, I just figured a nice legit trick that allows you to significantly increase your damage output with all the long-reload ranged weapons (guns and crossbows). It is not bug abuse and most likely it was intended by the gamemakers.

The trick is simple and requires just a little bit of micro:

1. Have two long-reload ranged weapons you want to use.
2. Equip both of them in your weapon slots.
3. When the encounter begins shoot with one of the weapons, then switch to the other.


This only works once (both weapons will require you to reload afterwards) so the damage gain is not huge. Might help eliminating enemy casters and marksmen however. It is a nice combo if you have 2 ranged users and you want to very quickly get rid of high-priority targets.


That's what the marksmen would do in the late Middle Ages if they had someone helping them with the second weapon. Just fire->switch->fire. It also feels SUPER EPIC.

A variation to this is having two different ranged weapons. One would be slow-reload, the other would be a bow:
1. Fire the slow reload as the fight begins.
2. Swap the weapons
3. Fire the bow (or a faster reload weapon) for possibly better dps.

I hope that helped!

EDIT: I forgot to add that you need to re-load both weapons even after combat if you want to keep using the trick.
