And so far I really don't know what all the hate's about. It seems pretty damned good to me. I went ahead and certed it during a TR assault on The Crossroads, and proceeded to get a 12-kill streak with it right out of the box with no attachments, fighting among the buildings around the central tower. Now, 12-kill killstreaks as infantry might not seem special to some of you, but for me that's effing amazing! It's rare that I get anywhere even close to that. I didn't die again for the rest of the battle, and ended my session in a better mood than the game's put me in for quite a while. I won't make a final call on the weapon until I hit Auraxium with it, but so far I gotta say the thing just feels... well, right. I'm not trying to claim that it's the single best gun in the game, but it's not bad, and it's certainly not as terrible as these forums make it out to be. It seems to be a perfectly usable and viable general purpose gun. Can't wait to slap an extended mag on it and go to town all Rambo-like!
