I'm posting here for visibility. If the post is considered spamming, then please delete, mods. TR has 5 carbines that are good for close quarters, but can still do work at medium ranges: TRAC-5, TRAC-5S, TRAC-5 Burst, Jaguar, Lynx. TR has 2 carbines that deal with the medium to long range niche: T5 AMC, and the Cougar. However, the TR arsenal lacks a dedicated CQC weapon. The old Lynx filled that role. People claim that the old Lynx had scarce differences with the Jaguar. However, there were still viable tradeoffs. -The Lynx has a tighter, SMG tier moving hipfire spread, as well as higher RPM, which lend to its better CQC capabilities. -The Jaguar has arguably more controllable recoil, as well as a better minimum damage of 112, attributing to its renowned versatility; doing well in close combat, yet still working at medium ranges. Other people claim that the new Lynx is good at CQC. While this is true, the old Lynx is better in close quarters than the new Lynx. The new Lynx loses: -0.75x ads speed multiplier -1.5 SMG tier moving hipfire spread -5720 damage per magazine -10m more minimum damage range -143 damage tier -a marginal amount of damage per minute Which are all qualities that factor into the old Lynx's success in CQC. In return, the new Lynx gains higher RPM and more controllable ads, and a faster reload. The new Lynx does a little worse in close quarters to do a little better at medium range. The advantage of the new Lynx in close quarters is in its headshot capabilities. However, the old Lynx didn't need to ads to excel in CQC, and when the old Lynx did ads, it gained a valuable 0.75x ads speed multiplier. However, people also argue: "Why should TR have 1 more carbine than the other factions?" The other factions have niches to fill as well. VS needs a competitor to the Pulsar C for medium to long range, and NC debatably needs a competitor to the GD-7F and now, the Bandit, for closer ranges. TL;DR: The TR should have both the old Lynx as well as the new Lynx. There are already weapon models for both; SOE only needs to act on it. Having both Lynx 1.0 and Lynx 2.0 would only add to the TR arsenals variety, with no downsides.
