    Stinger Minigun - overpowered or not?

    IM0 it is a bit 2 powerful.. 12 damage per round with that ROF? ...any player with decent aim can gain loads of kills, especially with the damage amp..then its just plain ridiculous?! (lol, godlikd bots..um..) I understand that there is balance..it hasnt got great range and it takes a (very) short time 2 wind up..so then countering someone with it with a well placed shot from range is the key..but..miss? Then you're dead? (fast movement, small areas) In terms of just plain damage..i think its a bit 2 much. Maybe it should go down from 12, to like 8 or 9...

        Maybe we need a new thread... as the old ones usually ended up in whine, rant or flame wars and then suddenly disappeared. *poof*

        Btw: No, it isn't overpowered.

          How do Epic actually go about balancing the vehicles and weapons, I remember reading that Dice used a fairly sophisticated stat gathering and processing system when they were testing BF2, so if you had a big enough sample of players of varying skill levels playing a given map for long enough, then any vehicle/weapon balance problems would show up in the stats

            Epic probably actually played their game with different values to see what worked best.

            And IMO the Stinger is fine. Its incredible inaccuracy makes up for its higher damage.

                      maybe it should temporarily overheat or something after 50 rounds like an MG?

                              afaik the ut2004 minigun was the same, if you're good at keeping your crosshair on the enemy you can usually mow them down, better to damage the enemy over time than have a chance at missing them with other weapons
