R-99 stikl overpowered

★ Apprentice

This gun is still the best in the game. The ammo nerf did nothing for people that can aim. The random spread did basically nothing.


It still needs further nerfing. I can't think of a single gun that's better than the r-99.

No my guy. People still laser other players with the R-99, at the same range as they do the R-301. This should not be the case.

A gun like the R-99 is supposed to be a rapid-fire sprayer with low damage for close quarters combat. Not a rapid-fire assault-rifle.

The R-99 simply needs a damage nerf.

The R-99 isn’t what it once was. I’m fine with it. It’s in a good spot now. No further nerfing required.

The R-99 is currently is a good spot.
Ofc it's strong in close range because it's a SMG but it has it's weaknesses.

There will always be S tier weapons and this is the one for close combat fights.

@GreenFire317 What you mean to say is that it needs more damage drop off.

Re: R-99 stikl overpowered

For CQC definitely agree.


But at range tho, you might wanna go for a Wingy or that Charge Rifle mate.

R-99 OP not because of dmg but because aim speed and reload speed which there is no room for reaction and counterplay, ppl with good aiming and good position can delete quick and easy ppl from game or team while there no gun that can do it. Peacekeeper for example need few shots and godly aim new Charge Riffle need few shot too for kill
