Engineer currently misses a power focused offhand which becomes a problem with Holosmith's sword. Getting extra core weapons is extremely unlikely at this point so why not changing offhand pistol into a decent hybrid weapon instead of getting a new on.
Blowtorch is very strong in power and even decent in condi builds but Glueshot has always been lackluster even as a utility skill. 1.5sec highly telegraphed immobilize that doesn't do any damage on a fairly high cooldown is just very situational in pvp and borderline useless in pve.
How could it be improved? It could just leave an acid bomb like damage field while keeping the mechanic. Would stay relevant in pvp for condi builds while buffing pistol for power builds and adding a use in pve.
Guardian shield and focus both got good reworks quite a while ago, isn't it time for engi to get nice stuff? Any other ideas how glueshot could be changed to make it less terrible or how shield or pistol could become better power weapons?
