This is the latest PTS change: Dear Wrell, you could increase the ammo capacity to infinite, it wouldn't help the reduced sustainability. In fact, even if you really did solve the sustainability by giving NC MAX's a magazine capacity of 50+, you would still have problems because the NC MAX simply does not outperform the TR and VS MAX in any way. Only exception are the Scattercanons if they get a OHK within their ideal range, but all other shotguns are inferior to the TR and VS options. NC MAX's on PTS now have lower DPS, longer TTK's, less magazine depth, less accuracy, higher punishment for misses and longer reloads. NC MAX's on PTS have... One advantage over the TR and VS, with a singular weapon choice you can get a OHK in the ideal range if RNG favors you. If you want to balance this, the NC MAX's need some advantage. Sustainability is the TR's thing with as many bullets down range as possible. Accuracy is VS's thing. NC is supposed to be damage and bolted on prototype weaponry. This means the focus needs to be on DPS, shorter TTK's and advantageous mechanics. Buff DPS up again, not to the old levels but at the very least the NC MAX needs to be superior in it's ideal range. Then give it some nice stuff like something similar to the UT Flak canon only without bouncing shells and you can detonate the flak shell mid-air to produce a shotgun pattern from that point for example. It allows a MAX to fire at longer range, but also means you reduce the ROF as you have to detonate the previous shell before firing the next.
