I played 2 matches, both on Nexus, and wow I just loved the weapon. It reminds me of the digger, where it can be used as a zoning tool with the active burning terrain. Extremely good for breaking hills when they are all clumped up or covering flanks with the active or even limiting movement in general.
I also like that when you run out of ammo with the weapon, it doesn’t let you active it unlike other weapons. You can only active it with the set timer after pickup or after getting an active. Good balance decision so that the active can’t be used to abusive lengths.
I do think it might have a bit too much ammo though? Maybe lowering it by 20? But again, it was only 1 game, so need to test more.
Just giving my thoughts! Just love the weapon as I might not be the best player mechanicly but I do have good tactical knowledge back from my GoW3 days. Really brought me back and was a huge breath of fresh air.
