I think everyone here that hasn’t just played the game for the first time knows that the Minigun is by far the absolute worst gun in the game in desperate need of a rework.
Let’s start with the pros first.
- Decent ammo capacity.
- Great reload speed and with the reload perk it’s basically instantaneous.
- Cool to use/handle.
- Slow to whip out.
- Slow to move around with.
- Weak as all hell .
- Extremely inaccurate.
- It’s a secondary weapon (no idea why this beast is considered a secondary).
- you become the preds favorite person and your teams most hated person.
Overall it’s just a complete detriment to you and your team as it is completely outperformed by every other weapon and unlike the Plasma Rifle it doesn’t even fill a niche. The only reason why anyone would bring this is if they’re new to the game and no one let them know or if the FT is just completely bored and brings it as a meme weapon.
I think what would make this weapon better would be to first, give this weapon some respect and make it a primary weapon, if you bring this out in the jungle then you should mean business.
Second, increase the movement speed to at least that of carrying an LMG or just a tad bit slower than that.
Third, substantially increase the accuracy to justify its weak DPS or ramp up the damage to make it the most dangerous up close weapon in the game and a counter to melee centric preds but bad against a ranged pred. I’ve heard people justify its use by saying that up close it will melt a pred however that would only work IF that pred is brain dead or new and even then a PDW-Z or an AK can do the same much quicker.
This is all I have for now feel free to add your suggestions not that Illfonic would actually read or care but it’s at least a little fun to imagine what could be.
