Oh hey, apparently I leave the automatic messages. Well, interesting. Anyway, with the weapon category articles you're doing, just keep the names of them plural in case I get around to adding the singular versions (as with Limpet Guns versus Limpet Gun) and that's all good. I prefer to keep the table format for the individual weapon articles because it makes it easier to compare their stats, but for the weapon class article the card format works fine.

Thank you for the heads-up concerning the wiki's organization. QuaestComm (talk) 21:51, April 28, 2018 (UTC)
Oh, also you should probably label the ones you're putting up as just 4.1, because a lot of weapons have different stats and some also have different descriptions in 2025. An extreme example of this would be Limpet Guns, which are almost totally different in 4.1. Evil Tim (talk) 05:05, May 1, 2018 (UTC)

Weapon stats

If you'd like a full list of weapon stats, including some neat hidden stats like the projectile duration of missile launchers, there's a site I use for it:

EDF 2025 stats

EDF 4.1 stats

That's the page for the Ranger. It's in Japanese so run it through Google Translate or the translate option in Chrome, the weapon stats are under "data by military personnel" in the sidebar. The popup that appears is telling you to turn off your adblock and you can just click through it. Evil Tim (talk) 06:07, March 2, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the links --- I will definitely take a look at the 4.1 stats once I start adding in missing weapon entries (which will be after I finish creating weapon family pages mentioned by the class articles). QuaestComm (talk) 06:20, March 2, 2019 (UTC)

Idle curiosity, why are the Wing Diver homing plasma launchers redirects rather than their own pages like all the others you've done? Evil Tim (talk) 09:06, March 5, 2019 (UTC)

I didn't have a good idea at the time as to how to group those weapons, so I took the lazy route then. Now that I've had some time to mull things over, though, I'll go back and make unique pages. Admittedly, this had slipped my mind, so thanks for pointing it out. QuaestComm (talk) 17:40, March 5, 2019 (UTC)
