    I for one am extremely excited that HMS added slight homing to this weapon. Before the game was released I was so excited for it from all of the videos I saw. But when the game actually came out I was disappointed to see how underpowered it was. But now that it has homing I feel that it is a perfectly balanced weapon. What are anyone else's thoughts?

    I was trying to use it earlier, still feels weak. Went back to the orbital pistol.

    Really? To me it's perfect... it's not too easy to kill with either! But to each his own I guess because I'm assuming you are good with the Orbital Pistol? I suck with that thing..

    Yea if a weapon does major damage it should be hard to use or have a small clip size and long reload time.

    The point is that it was TOO hard to use and the game developers saw that it didn't perform well. I'm pretty sure they know what they are doing.

    Eh, I'll stick with my Photon Burst Rifle and Orbital Pistol, those two are like death in a can.

    actually i tried it last night..

    it's still a weak weapon.

    and i don't know what "homing function" they're talking about.

    now i'm gonna try it again later. but i don't see this being a primary weapon for my scientist if i want to have consistent number of kills. i actually got frustrated. i was gonna make it my primary if it became decent last night. but i reverted back to my previous load outs.

    It is actually pretty great for defending flags in Conquest. The ricochet can get 2 or more enemies at once.

    I've never used it and still don't plan to, but I'm glad it received some love. I definitely saw it curve towards me when I was behind cover last night. It was like something out of Wanted.

    Still haven't really seen any example of this, but I DID hear one veer towards me in mid-flight last night, luckily it bashed into the wall.

    I now use it just because of the fun of it, the homing only happens when it bounces, there's a small area around the player that if you hit it will curve into them. It's fun killing people round corners where there out of you line of sight.

    I don't see how some people aren't seeing the change. To me it's SIGNIFIGANTLY better. Maybe people were expecting it to home in as well as the needler or something..
