    Is TERRIBLE, I unloaded 4 charged shots into a titan and nothing, 5 shots into an infiltrator, nothing, they need to buff it

    Amazing, takes players down in 1 or 2 shots sometimes. It's great while waiting to capture a post too

    That sucks.. I thought since it would be difficult to target this weapon it would be a one-hit, one-kill weapon just like a sniper rifle if it's a direct hit.

    I played it in campaign, and it's Magma Frag but without an arch.

    Before someone asks about the Slime Cannon, it seems mediocre coming from someone who has only been on the receiving end of one. Every time this one guy spammed it in a match I just played, I always easily took him down before I took barely any damage with the X18 Scrapmaker.

    I hope they do buff the Gear Shredder, though. Makes me sad that it's so awesome looking, sounding, and is just awesome in campaign, but apparently, crap in MP. They overdid the MP nerf, I guess they were worried it would be too powerful.

    Oh man does this gun suck. And it takes forever to reload. I put it on my Rectal Spectre class an couldn't even get one kill with it. Better off just using the Assault Rifle.

    Meh, I'll use it and see how it does before I agree with any of you.

    It does look cool, though, seems a fun weapon I'd enjoy.

    plus you cannot add any attachments to it, why unlock it if you cannot get one attachment?

    I did fine with the gear shredder, it depends on how you use it.. I caught these guys in one area and unloaded three shredders, they started bouncing off the walls and so i fired more lol eventually there were body parts flying everywhere! its harder to get a good shot when you're out in the open though. I just mark my target once or twice then switch to shredder and fire away, its a very fun weapon to use but im wanting the burst rifle more!

    The weapon upgrades like Torque Ripper, Hyper Interlink and the Tachyon Transmitter, maybe with one of those on the gun is better, but it sucks without them

    I do fine with the Gear Shredder. You just have to know when and where to use it. It is slightly underpowered though.

    does it do more damage after it bounces off a wall?

    ok so you can shoot 4 blades at once by holding the button down and wow its hard to use.

    I agree, I was having a ton of fun with it. It's a very situational weapon. I caught 3 guys standing around capping A, so I unloaded on them. With the bouncing it does, it killed all 3 guys before they could even react. It is somewhat underpowered for a 1v1 encounter, though I have successfully used it in that situation. When using it against groups in close quarters, it's a lot of fun.

    For me, it is strictly a Campain weapon.

    I don't believe any of your stories. This gun sucks, plain and simple. I also get gold 9 out of 10 times playing conquest, I usually get 23 kills and only 5 deaths with each class. So it's not a skill thing, the gun is way underpowered and needs to be fixed, I unloaded 5 shots into an infiltrator, and nothing.
