Disclaimer: Yes I know we've barely had ANY time with the new tweaks, but I figured I'd ask what people think anyway. Maybe you really know how these changes will play out.
So the idea is pretty simple: What will be the community's next "Overpowered" weapon? Will it be a revisit of an old OP gun? Maybe it'll be a kickback? I'm not sure. But here is what I think....
Just from a few matches of playing, and thinking about all of the respective changes of 1.18, I will guess that the next OP gun will be the G-Mal. Why? Now that it has a reasonable recoil, this gun will turn into a mid-range monster. Unlike its previous role as OP (where the stopping power was insane), the G-Mal will now see a great increase of 2-burst kills. Simply because the gun was so hard to handle, people didn't often realize the killing speed of this gun. It doesn't take that long to get off 2 bursts. Along side that now blindfire is less effective, the G-Mal can shut down rushers with its quick kill time and relatively strong Stopping Power.
NOTE: This was all just my prediction! Please don't think that I'm calling the G-Mal OP! I believe that U3's current state is VERY balanced. But we all know the community is bound to abuse the next "OP weapon".
Yeah, it will be soon probably Yeah, the G-Mal right now is great. Good at mid and long range, but not so good at short range. To counter, I use the tau or para. Also, the Dragon Sniper seems to be very effective in the Dry Docks map
The M9 will still reign supreme.
Most of the UC3 player base aren't even aware of the technical adjustments.
If the M9 manages to fall from grace The AK will take it's place.
Auto weapons are like, the staple of shooters.
