I dont think they changed much but it has a higher muzzle velocity than 500 on charge and it has 300 on semi things (from what ive seen at least) when not surppressed. Somewhere around the 500 mark suppressed on charge mode. it still only OHKs at 200m but thats the same as the XM98 or equivalent nc/tr variants and yes its charge up time is a bit long in snipertime its not much worse than railjacks. I find its use, while a bit limited, godly if used right. some examples being the infinite ammo if youe in a good position, such as manage to get into hossins trees and camp a spawn room or other notable chokepoint. Another good use for it is its OHK suppressed fire, for areas where you cannot get a good 175+m distance out this is amazing, no buletdrop suppressed OHK for areas like xenotech labs for example where there isnt much cover, and that which there is blocks a good amount of the base and depending on what direction youre shooting from hard to see enemy sundies/things like that, meaning youd have to go closer. a OHK headshot and actually faster refire time if you start charging right when your projectile hits for a double tap makes the phaseshift in my opinion the best VS sniper, maybe even the best in the game if used right.
