There is a rifle in Titanfall called the G2A4.
- It does fairly poor damage (3 body hits, or 4 suppressed).
- It has poor accuracy (forget about long range).
- It has a poor rate of fire (no semi or full auto, fires as fast as trigger pulls with an attachment that further reduces accuracy).
- It has a small magazine and an average reload time.
Close up a shotgun, LMG or SMG will own you every time. Mid range an LMG, carbine, hemlock or even smart pistol will. Long range both snipers will outclass you completely, and again the carbine or hemlock are still better.
There is a challenge where you have to get a large number of kills with this gun, but it feels almost completely worthless - in my hands this gun is worse than any of the side-arm pistols.
Given how well balanced the rest of the guns are this seems unlikely. What am I doing wrong with this gun? How should I use it?
