Ballistic Vs. Plasma

Ballistic weapons are meant for Armor-piercing, not shield breaking. Meaning when shields are down, an SMG is preferred over a storm rifle or plasma rifle. That’s why you start breakout with an SMG.

But in reality, Plasma would completely sweep ballistic-based weapons aside…Or, SMGs are a really potent CQB weapon, since all my engagements in Breakout seem to take place after running into a guy just around that corner…
