The Great Debate: Power v. Speed

One of the major conundrums all Racers must face is what kind of weapons would make their car the most dangerous and powerful car in all of Eat My Dust, a car that would help either the Dragons or the Scorpions win once and for all. There is a debate between the power of the weapon versus the speed the weapon can repeatedly fire.

A powerful weapon, such as one that inflicts 50 damage, is a weapon that does not require as much ammo and can dispatch distance enemies with ease. The best weapon is the weapon that you only have to fire once, as it has been said. However, most of these powerful weapons have a trade-off: it can take one to two seconds for the weapon to cool down before the next shot. During that time, an enemy Racer or one of the Zombies can attack your car and kill the Racer while they are wasting precious battle seconds for their weapon to cool down. While the best kind of weapon is the one you only have to fire once, that does not always work if the Racer does not even have a chance to fire the weapon.

On the other side of things is the speedy weapon, one that can partake in rapid fire. With cool down times half of what the more powerful weapons have, Racers can launch a full-out attack on enemies and can win before the enemy even has a chance to wait for their powerful weapon to reload. It also gives more flexibility to the Racer if they happen to miss their target. However, a speedy weapon’s use is also contingent on a large stash of ammo; while a Racer may overwhelm their enemy with the rapidity of fire, it also costs a lot more coins to keep the ammo stocked and ready.

Of course, the speed versus power debate can be resolved by buying a higher tier weapon, such as the Tier 4 Shark Missile or a Tier 3 Lightning Gun, which can inflict both 50 damage and have a reload time of only half of a second. Of course, these higher power weapons can only be bought with a higher rank or with Turbo Bucks, so be sure to keep playing Eat My Dust.

Barring a super-powered high-tier weapon, which kind of weapon do you prefer: the powerful weapon or the speedy weapon?
