- Force Rounds is the name of both the Psych and the pin. This article is about the Psych Force Rounds.
Force Rounds is a negative psych, with the majority of the pins with this psych made by Natural Puppy. This psych is activated by tapping empty space; bullets are fired towards the point tapped. The bullets' characteristics vary from pin to pin. Regular pins with Force Rounds are categorized under A Class.
Most Force Rounds pins have an efficiency rating of 25%, one of the lowest in the game. This makes them ill-suited as puck passers, but its very fast firing rate along with its ease of use makes some of the pins adequate for filler damage. The Force Rounds pins with different efficiency ratings are Lolita Bat (40%), Skull Rabbit (30%), Purity Launcher (20%), and Innocence Beam (20%).
Regular bullets (Sexy Beam/Black Venus) vs. penetrating bullets (Skull Rabbit/Playmate Beam/Popguin)Edit
One would believe that the penetrating bullet pins, with much higher pin ATK, are the superior pins. However, as a penetrating bullet goes through an enemy, that enemy becomes invincible for a few frames. If all penetrating bullets are fired rapidly at an enemy, about half the bullets will miss! Therefore, the regular bullet pins, Sexy Beam and Black Venus, deal more overall damage than the penetrating bullets! Black Venus is only available in the postgame, but is better than Sexy Beam because of its shorter reboot time.
Lolita Bat vs. regular bulletsEdit
Lolita Bat looks very attractive with its 40% efficiency. Unfortunately, Lolita Bat's bullets cause great knockback. If all of Lolita Bat's bullets are fired rapidly at a mobile enemy, all but one of the bullets will miss! Regular bullets, despite their lower efficiency and pin ATK, will deal greater damage to a single target because the enemy won't be thrown across the field. However, if a player prefers to juggle their enemies over inflicting damage, Lolita Bat is the better pin for that.
Regular bullets vs. Purity Launcher vs. Innocence BeamEdit
Regular bullets only hit a single target, while the other two pins feature multi-shot. Innocence Beam acts as a faux Energy Rounds pin with a faster firing rate. Purity Launcher can shoot many more bullets than Innocence Beam provided that it has enough distance for the initial bullet to fragment. It must be fired at medium to long range or else its potential is wasted.
Of the three, regular bullets is the best overall choice, as the more powerful enemies are solo encounters.
