I think the thing is that alternatives are viable but they require very specific gear. The crit build for fl4k was usable without any incredible gear. FL4K’s pet build is viable but it’s more gear specific, thus making it available to less people.
Personally I’m still running around with a Rowan’s call facemelting everything and laughing.
+20% crit rate to any body part gives me a ridiculous clip size. Having 0 points in the now useless leave no trace allows for points into persistant hunter. Not that LnT helped with Rowan’s call anyway, but this just reinforces me using Rowan’s. I’ll throw in the Duc in there sometimes as well just for fun.
One thing I really want to test though is the mega hit build.
No GiTM. Hellwalker shotgun. 5.5k base damage and it ricochets crits. Unblinking eye. Pretty situational build and crazy burst damage, but you can use hellwalker for burst damage, then rowan’s call to get fade away cooldown off as long as you have points in Head Count
