    People always complained the flak was OP in 99. Much as I like the new flak, maybe it is a bit too strong. Don't nerf it too much though! Or please, we've got to come up with a creative nerf other than just taking away from stats numbers.

    I think it's balanced enough in that you're outgunned at range, and getting close enough to shred someone usually means they're not paying attention. Maybe the alt-fire ball needs a nerf more than the primary.

    I would like to see the current flak chunk damage at the old rate of fire. If you pretend like you can't fire it faster, and limit your self it's almost rewarding. Using it like an autoshotty holding the trigger is laughable. Slower rate and low damage is adequate balance for the larger collision size. Basically, it should only get one of the three, and Epic keeps giving it two.

    Well, how would you suggest making sniper harder to use?

It's this that makes half accurate shots do such rediculous damage. Half the collision size and reduce shard damage by 1.

    I don't usually zoom with the sniper so haven't notice that aspect yet.
    Well we got the 2nd part

    The flak one is a difficult one, it's always been a gib weapon but it feels a bit powerful and really spammy at the moment, perhaps reducing ammo capacity/pack size will make it more situational?

    Flak and Sniper Zoom

    Can we bring Flak more in line with the other weapons? It's extremely strong right now, two shots people at full health in Elimination with a fast fire rate.

    Also a lot of people liked using the normal 'Zoom' with Sniper previously without it forcing the new FOV, it makes the Sniper a lot less effective in medium range situations because it zooms in so much. Often, players that use Sniper a lot will just press the zoom to get more focus on the target and the red indicator - generally I wouldn't zoom in very much at all - it just helps with focusing on your target.
