Okay, So I Auraxium'd the AC-X11 just after Christmas 2012. Pretty hardcore that one I can tell you, but in all fairness, it was a better gun then than it is now. Not that it's improved, it's just that everyone now wears nanoweave level 5. It's a gimped gun. I then switched to the GD-7F. My K/D ratio doubled overnight with that thing. I think it's our best gun by far, and I haven't missed the irony that it's the least "NC" of our guns. It's like firing the TR cycler... it's just that fast. Superb DPS. You can even tap fire at enemies at range to annoy them. Great gun. My favourite in the game. So after Auraxium'ing that one, I've decided to revert back to the Mercenary. What to say. Meh? Totally vanilla. Has no strong points at all. Sucks at hip fire. Mediocre at range. I'm getting kills... but I really do believe having put some hours in to it now that I'd get those kills with the gd-7f too. It's range isn't really that much longer (and I used soft point on the '7f). It's damage is clearly much worse. If this is our stock gun for non-paying players, then seriously, no wonder we're getting shafted on a daily basis. I even trialled the Razor (fair enough; totally different beast)... and that's like the AC just a bit better (maybe)? So... anyone else use the Mercenary and think it's better than the '23 or 7f? Is it just a very very average gun?
