Yep…that is sadly the case. The gun has never been anything worth using. I personally never liked it in BL2. However BL3 it’s actually better than before yet…STILL terrible somehow. I don’t understand why we haven’t seen this thing recieve a damage buff yet because this gun is just awful. Flakker on the other hand was at least a bit useful in my opinion in BL2…ooooh the glory days of dual wielding two Flakkers for fun on Gunzerker and the method you speak of was just GREAT.
So why isn’t Bearcat up to pair? Why over two games is it still in a bad spot. It got improvements yet…STILL can’t keep up. It’s just mind blowing everytime I think about it. It’s like Gearbox fears this gun being overpowered yet there are like what in this game that are already a bit too op. (Not saying it shouldn’t be however my point is Bearcat doesn’t have to be op to be good. It just needs to perform better at what it’s supposed to do like a lot of other things need to be now that I think about it.)
Fixing the ammo cost was a nice way to fix ONE of it’s problems but the main problem I still see is just that damage. It’s not doing too well. Most I’ve seen it take out decent with is low tier mobs of enemies and even then there are just way better options.
I also wouldn’t mind some utility base to be put into that gun in advance.
I keep repeating this over and over this gun has potential but it’s up to Gearbox on whether or not they will give this gun moment to shine like they did for Lob although Lob was so op they had to nerf it honestly so I wouldn’t say Bearcat needs to be on that level of broken but the point is…Bearcat needs to get up their with the guns that are performing well to make it another good option to choose.
Otherwise…this gun is just gonna keep getting overlooked.
