one of them is. (and again only under very very theoretical scenario with a ton of handicaps.) another is towards the middle, and the other 2 (including the supposed "high dps" weapon) are lagging way behind the crowd. but you seem to want to ignore them and only see scatts, so ok lets look at scatts you keep mentioning this "insta kill". you mean the insta kill that requires 8 of the 10 widely spread pellets to achieve? on the weapon with a painfully hilarious .5 second fire rate? if you don't win the lottery and land those 8/10 pellets. (9/10 against nanoweave/symbiote/etc) then the next best TTK that you can achieve is .5 sec. for illumination the TTK with (hell lets pick something slow) Mercy! is 564 milliseconds. your "king of CQC" has a TTK only 64 millisecond faster than a weapon with vastly superior range? and again i'm pretending the TR didn't land any headshots with his nice accurate Mercys. for that tasty 2x headshot multiplier. i'm giving you a ton of handicaps and it nets you a 56 millisecond lead on one of the slower TR weapons. i could have picked something like Nebula or Onslaughts which kill faster than Scatt (when you don't win the lottery) but where is the fun in that. whatever idea you have about NC max being some sort of CQC god, the stats disagree with you. even on PTS after the buff (and with handicaps thrown in to the math) they are only slightly better at CQC than TR/VS. stats don't lie.
