Vintage Heat Sink Information

"This is a Gun Behavior augmentation. You may apply one such augment to a gun during the development process.



Vintage Heat Sink Effects

  • Weapon: Ammo refills automatically after a delay; no longer uses traditional ammo clips



Where to Find/Location

  • Research and Development Terminal




  • The Vintage heat sink also reduces clip sizes across all weapons by 60%.
    Unequipping/dismantling the augmented weapon does not appear to be removing this effect, so it is recommended that this augment is only used when a 60% smaller clip size is not a problem, such as on builds specialized on powers or weapons that already have only one shot per clip
  • Great with the sniper rifle Isharay as the heat dissipation is faster than reloading.

      Little bit of a warning:
      Using the heat sink comes with quite severe limitations:

      It will permanently reduce your clp size by 60%
      Permanently, as in: The clip sizes of all the weapons in that particular playthrough get 60% less shots before reloading. There doesn't seem to be a way to get rid of this other than to load a checkpoint before you augmented a gun with that.

      So unless you plan on running a purely power-based build or are a big fan of 1shot-clip weapons like the Isharay sniper, you might wanna keep your hands off this augment.
