This applies to both his ultimate, and his basic attack. There are lots of times where you unload on someone even at point blank range and half your clip misses. Many times this can be the difference in getting a kill or having them run away with half health.
And his ultimate sometimes is even worse. I really don’t understand it. I’m really bummed about it because I went against Ghalt in the beta one time and he looked incredible and he was the character I most looked forward to playing, but because of his shoddy hit detection, I can’t stand using him. Other than that, his kit is great fun.
I wonder if recoil reduction gear would maybe help? Probably not.
