I haven't been on the forums lately so ^^^ This game is a TEAM based game so if it requires someone else to be good then so be it. I have no problems with heat and being a TEAM player. I have no problems using it solo also. The only people that I see complain about it is people who seem only to be wanting kills for their stat screen. The only two things I have a problem with is I think the suppression effect should be instant to deter potshots and should be able to use a pistol. As for the damage I think it's good as is. Spent most one one day just making burritos with compass.bugged? And again, you're talking about using it in conjunction with someone else - the only ability in the game that requires this for it to be reasonably effective.
