Balance

Blitz has less damage to nerf it against Glaive and a little less range to nerf it against everything.

   Damage 200 -> 180
   Range 260 -> 245

Ripper should generally be better against raiders.

   Range 290 -> 300
   Reload 1.7 -> 1.633

Widow has a bit more range to help it reach tall turrets on cliffs.

   Range 100 -> 120

Thunderbird hits targets in a thinner line but should do approximately the same amount of single target damage.

   AoE 192 -> 160
   Spray angle reduced by 1/6th
   Damage (per bolt) 675 -> 650

Redback and Scorpion particle beams have a bit more burst. This is a 5% increase to DPS.

   Damage 60 -> 70
   Reload 0.3 -> 0.333
