The 8-Barrel Mini Mortar(if that's how to spell it but I'm too lazy to check the forums)is honestly terrible like all mortars.

It's faster firing than the 3-Pound cannnnon(woops, but I have no intention of fixing this because I'm drowsy and you have to deal with people who are sleep-deprived) but deals less damage and hits the target later because of its projectile arc. It may have homing but you have to face the target directly and be at a specific range while taking twice the space and resources and components of the 3-pound cannon which has an adjustable fire arc and has longer range. It's an seriously underpowered weapon and here are some suggestions on it:

1. Buff its homing

2. Decrease its cost

3. Buff its damage

Post your suggestions below.
(finally made it through a thread without using italics Aaah is that last parenthese in italic!?)

you're saying this because of lathrix's old mortar spam?(I am a lathrix fan) anyways, I am definitely on board with this buffing. most of the mortars in the other corps have decent stats,(including the ven ones, which is stupid) but the 8 barrel. this does need a upgrade, because they are the first mortar and the first homing projectile you can get in the game. the homing does need to be better, at least the homing

Really? I felt that if the 3-pounders angle at 45 degrees, they have better range than the mini mortars.
P.S Did you see my signature?(the lathrix part)
well, 3-pound does have some range, but the mortars should be better in range. also I enjoy lathrix

Me no understand you.

I remember the 3-pounds are better because they have similar projectile velocity and 3-pound cannons can anglle to 45 degrees while mortars are fixed at around fifty or so, so the 3-pdr has marginally better range.

I honestly thing they should lower the damage and improve the homing. I mean, it would be nice if, they could hit the enemy even if they're facing in the opposite direction.
