    Is this pistol worth buying considering I already have a fully upgraded UFO pistol? It does less damage but gas way better fire rate and bigger magazine, but is it enough to make up for the damage and even then is it worth the gems?

    I’m with the same dilema. Should I buy it or not when I come across with the offer!

    Personally I think it is. I don’t have hard statistics but it feels like it has better damage per second than the UFO. But the clincher for me is the magazine size being double that of the UFO which means more shots before reloading, which wastes time. The fire rate is also great because it means you can inflict more damage quicker on enemies, especially those that hide behind shields.
    Also if you look at the difference in damage between the 2 pistols on shielded enemies, when you account for the 50% reduction the difference between the damage stats is only 20ish per shot.
    I’ve never regretted getting the M5. In real terms with the M5 you can kill an Infantryman or a Storm Trooper before they shoot or hide back behind their shields. I cant remember whether you can do that with the UFO (Disclaimer – I have researched Lv3 Vulnerabilities on both enemies and that is also using a fully upgraded Attack Mode)

      Thanks for the insight! I can confirm that with the UFO pistol upgraded and level 3 vulnerability I can only very rarely kill infantrymen and stormtroopers before they hide behind their shields. I think I’ll go for it. I can’t stand the small magazine size of the UFO pistol.

    How many gems and at what level is it offered at? Thanks.

    Guys, i have a fully upgraded ufo pistol, and at lvl 46 i can kill 1.5, sometimes 2 infantryman before they hide, depending on their timing. Often all 3 of them in terror lvl 1.

    I just dont see the benefit in buying a regular ammunition pistol after having the ufo pistol. I mean, at this level almost every terror lvl 3 or higher has an arored enemy… and without the ufo pistol you will have to use grenades or wait for an aimed shot. I’d rather save my gems for something better.

      But Mihail, the M5 is an energy weapon, same as the UFO. I’m about to research the UFO, but wonder if I shouldn’t just wait for the M5. It’s probably cheaper to fully upgrade too, as the UFO rquires crystalite. Of course I’d have to spend some $ for get the M5 :(

    Guys weapons that require gems are always better than their counterparts.thats why you can only buy them with gems and they are not cheap either.the m5 is more like a machine gun the fire rate is a lot better than the ufo gun.the magazine is bigger.so faster shooting and a lot less time for reloading so do the simple math.that is my honest opinion.i was skeptical about the m3 as well but it is DEFINETLY better than the acid pistol.same with the m5 and the ufo gun.
