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
