When we first got introduced to the Gears 5 Markza, the weapon was a viable pick up that players use to rush for to get dibs on it. After a couple of weeks post-launch, there has been some debate about whether the weapon was too strong for the meta among the E-Sport community. I personally don’t play Gears 5 competitively nor am I a “Pro” Player, but seeing The Devs bend the knee for that small minority of players and overhauling the weapon completely to what it is now, made me quaff… I rarely to never see them place the updated version of the weapon in-between rounds during their E-Sports Escalation broadcasts. This makes it obvious that this weapon has lost its panache and is now seen as a less than mediocre weapon overshadowed by the default loadout.
I’d like to make a suggestion to revert the modification to what it once was or buff it a little on different aspects.
I keep finding myself running out of ammo after a couple of shots being fired, so I’d suggest an extra magazine to support the weapon alongside a reduction of the bloom size to make it more accurate.
