no
There is a place where the losers win
A port of call for desperate men
It is known by many names
We come and go but it remains
Nobody cares, nobody cries
if you're scared or if you die
That's the way it goes
You should know...

Fuck no. PDW is only used by classes that suffer from massive reload. It's fine saying it's "too good" when you're shooting an AR that does double the damage and has no reload delay to speak of. Try being a captain or field surgeon with a 10 second reload delay on everything in your inventory Chris.

you arent thinking in damage over time, shield+damage=actual damage, etc

pdw has a low burst dps, because of the reload and lesser values. AR has a sustained dps that ends up being more effective.

+20 drain and +4 kinetic is

easily

double

the

damage.


against the heaviest armors, KUCHLER AR's +2 kinetic -10 drain is 1.5x to 2x the damage of maklov
