I understand the gripe with the boom. It’s a rocket launcher. If anything needs to be more op, maybe it does.
But, I’m sick of the boom. After all the upending the developers have done with gears in the last 15 years, the one constant is having the op rocket launcher on most maps. I never knew it was that important and amazing? To be constantly in every gears game, on most maps?
Replace it with the booshka. It’s a no brainer. The booshka is a gun players can get behind. Bounce and trick shots are more exciting than camping with the boom all game!
