Valid point, it's often not the best against bosses. But for everything at its tier:I still don’t see what the Stinger is good for other than pumpkin/frost moon’s waves without killing minibosses and maybe solar pillar, where everything stays on the ground.
But there are better opinion, and you said something about A weapons being well-rounded, and a weapon is not well rounded if it can’t handle a single boss other than the destroyer or maybe golem, not even SK prime.
-Can fight Golem quite well
-Can fight Fishron moderately well, although there are better alternatives
-Can deal nicely with both moon events
-Not so great with Martians, but those are cheesy anyway
-Deals quite well with the pillars
-Does poorly against the Cultist
-Does okay in the Old One's Army, but not so well against Betsy
Those fragments that come off the bolts can hit flying enemies easily, so it keeps most of its DPS on bosses. I'unno, I've used it pretty extensively, but not religiously; can anyone else chime in with their experience?
