The following write-up takes a look at the Ratatat (Pistol) vs the Viper (Pistol).

 

At this time of writing stormshield.one hasn't updated the schematic (for the new weapon) but we can tell from the UI that

  • It is effectively identical to the Viper (base weapon stats)
  • The Ratatat has a magazine size of 35, reload speed of 2.2 (seconds)
  • The Viper has a magazine size of 30, reload speed of 1.4 (seconds)
  • The Ratatat has a non-standard combination of perks and it is locked to 'affliction' in the 6th slot.
  • The 'spread' and recoil values are different for each weapon (hipfire, aim down sight) but this is really a minor thing as you can see from a video linked below.

 

It should be pointed out that these pistols are very CQC type weapons, they get damage drop once you start shooting at targets beyond 1.0 tiles

 

Ranged weapons (like these pistols) really only make sense on things like mini-bosses, when you need to dump in as much 'dps' as possible, or when you're performing 'triage' (e.g. Smashers have overwhelmed your final line of defense and you're stuck panic rebuilding walls). Due to this, they're also one of the few ranged weapons where it actually makes sense to compare them based on DPS.


The scenario for the following write up

  • Assumes that any conditional status (e.g. afflicted) is present for 100% of the scenario
  • Will take a look at the headshot thresholds for a generic hero loadout (no weapon specialistions)
  • Will take a snap-shot of the Ranger (with various supports) at the extreme ends (0%, 100% headshots) to see if the Ratatat (and the unique perk combinations) can out perform the Viper in DPS.
  • Assumes Physical vs Physical, Strong Elemental vs Weak Elemental Husk

Discussion

Given that the weapons are more or less identical there's not really all that much to write about. They have 'slightly' different handling characteristics (due to spread, and the recoil on the weapon) which may/may not make the Viper slightly harder to control for some players, but fundamentally the Viper out performs the Ratatat. The performance of Viper only increases further once you realise that the Viper can get things like x5 headshots in a row for 30% damage, or 30% snare/slow instead of the 'Affliction' perk (which is really really bad).

 

The most important thing is probably taking note of the best in slot combinations for the Ranger and how they are different. They may be at extreme ends of the spectrum but it does highlight that at some point/stage/threshold the value of the given combinations will swap.

 

For a generic hero loadout, 42% headshots is the threshold from which (for either weapon) you may want to start transitioning into a headshot build. Whether you can hit that % only you can know. You can read up on how headshot % influences your performance, and the penalty of going a headshot build but failing to hit those headshots here.


Closing

If you have the gold you may as well pick up the Ratatat, if only to stop you getting it from a future b'day lama (or similar event). It's fundamentally worse than the Viper for 'dps' and with the damage drop distance for these pistols they're not really good for anything other than DPS. The Viper isn't event locked and you can get the lower rarity versions easily enough from blue pistol transformations (and then keep transforming them until you get the 6th slot you want).

 

My personal choice would be

  • Viper
  • Perks: Crit oriented (assume low headshot %)
  • 6th Perk: x5 headshots for 30% damage, or 30% snare/slow for 6 seconds

 

As odd as it may seem to pick a headshot related 6th perk but not plan on getting a high headshot %

  • x5 headshots in a row doesn't require you to full auto, you can single shot a head 5 times
  • There is no 'timer' between each headshot you land
  • The timer (buff) is 10 seconds after your 5th headshot, if you continue to just 'full auto' after your 5th headshot you'd still get 3 magazines worth of bullets (and then still have time to spare).
