Hopefully for Gears 5 they make the Boomshot how it use to be. It seems to me Grenades and Dropshot has waaaaay too much splash damage compared to the Boomshot.
You shoot the thing a foot away from someone and they’re still head downing you. It’s insane how much of a blast radius the nades and drop have compared to the boomshot. Grendades have the blast radius if a small city, Active Boomshot blash radius/splash damage isn’t even as large as a regular drop.
I’m not saying you can’t get double or triple kills with it, but at the same time, it definitely feels like an underpowered power weapon compared to the others. This isn’t even considering the reticle is very inaccurate at times, so you sometimes under shoot or complete miss your target because it doesn’t shoot straight.
