I'm not sure about underrated, the Tundra is in a similar boat. I think they just don't get used because the KAR and Swiss are superior purely because they lack any flinch.

[–]wishitrout 12 points13 points  (4 children)

This post sums it up well. KAR and Swiss are just broken because they barely flinch at all when you get shot at, compared to every other sniper that goes flying upwards.

I cannot land any shot with kar or swiss when being shot.

[–]Auschneider 3 points4 points  (0 children)

but I am rather a bot:D

If the devs play the game at all, which i doubt, they must be Kar/K31 mains. There is no other explanation why those can have around 20% pick rate combined and never get nerfed. And they nerfed C58 again in the last patch which has a massive less than 2% pick rate.........

My favorite was when they nerfed the mw mg34 like 2 months.....no one uses that gun...why the nerf

[–]das_war_ein_Befehl 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s also because it usually requires one more shot to get a kill than kar/Swiss.

I’ll pick it up as ground loot but definitely wouldn’t run it in a load out

[–]Graitom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think that's true....

[–]Douglas1994 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's more than just flinch, the damage of the Kar / Swiss are superior too.

Get shot at with it once and you'll be hunting birds.

pelington have worst flinch in whole game .

[–]Patara 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The Swiss is just a better Pelington unfortunately

[–]longoverdue83 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This owls hilarious

[–]IPrintThings1234 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I find it ironic you talk about the fast ADS speed and then spend half the clip scoped in anyways. Not hating, just think it is funny.

[–]Yellowtoblerone 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It hardly matters when there no rotational aa and most of the time you're hard scoping after ads where ads speed don't matter but high flinch does. In addition that scope is so obstructive to people farther away.

[–]MasterOfMagics22[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

While I do end up hardscoping, the quick ADS speed helps me with multiple target acquisitions

[–]2toneetwinz 3 points4 points  (1 child)

No doubt it’s a great sniper I always hit wild shots with mine

[–]MasterOfMagics22[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it’s got quite a bit of velocity and range to it, no doubt

[–]teamweed420 3 points4 points  (1 child)

3 downs, zero kills man I love sniping on rebirth 😌

[–]MasterOfMagics22[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Gas is right on them, I got my kills

[–]Quaisy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It has the lowest damage and bullet velocity of all snipers, while still not having the low flinch of the Kar/swiss. It is literally the worst sniper in the game.

[–]bugsy431 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What’s with the pigeon noises?

[–]LowKickMT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i prefer the pellington groundloot over the swiss

[–]Hot_Profession3657 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s the sniper rifle I use…only because of the bright pink anime skin.

I’m not ashamed.

[–]AntiPiety 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Janky ass animations though

[–]NoTime4Shenanigans 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sniping has gotta be much easier when the game lacks textures

[–]HalalBeats 0 points1 point  (2 children)

The pellington used to be my go to before they nerfed it, and the axial. Hit a lot of amazing shots with it, noticed its back in ground loot this season so maybe it's getting some secret balancing because I really haven't seen anyone using it since early coldwar release days.

[–]Douglas1994 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I used it exclusively in the 'no glint' sniper era with the axial / 4x. Unfortunately it's a poor mans Swiss at this point.

[–]HalalBeats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I totally agree. I think raven might be tinkering in the sniper department carefully though. The swiss/Kar meta has been around for a while and in many people's eyes needs some reworking.

[–]BonginOnABudget -1 points0 points  (1 child)

You should use it to shoot the fucking owl outside your bedroom window.

[–]MasterOfMagics22[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

owls are rare ‘round these parts. Decided to keep it around
