I literally just melted a dude in purple, from about 50-75m away with an R99
That's absolute *
For the power it has in CQC, the recoil should be brutal such that it CANNOT be effectively used at range
The recoil should be such that its more practical to hipfire- eg, CQC
UNLESS you do short, controlled bursts
But the fact I can laser mag dump a target at range is *
Anyone who doesn't think the R99 is OP either doesn't play, or uses that weapon as a crutch
Not only the power of this weapon is annoying. Although it has been nerfed twice, it is still popular.
Its whole design is meh. What sees an average player, which fights against R-99 at close distance:
- A huge muzzleflash(which is almost as big as wraith)
- An indicator that his shield is being damaged around the screen, which obscures vision even more
- Hears that disgusting sound(changing it would help to solve the problem, i swear)
Well, how you are supposed to focus in such a mess, thats a challenge.
I would like to see a LMG for light ammunition instead of it. I decided not to use this weapon, though i ping it for squad mates.
From the other side, who cares, its a game... But it is such a waste of their own(respawn) work - so many weapons, and yet majority of people still using that one from season 1.
Despite prowler buff, i didnt notice an increase in its popularity, and i die a lot.
Fighting from a distance with other weapons is an option, but in most cases my (random) teammates don't have patience for it..

@DraknasChan True, but you need a mod for the Prowler in order to do that. I'm not saying it's impossible to find a Select Fire, but sometimes you get unlucky and don't find the mod.While you can just pick up a R99 and boom. You are set for late-game.
