Jackal worth it?

Topic. is it great, or is it just a better/worse ARX Buster?

It's amazing. Each shot does 500 damage and it shoots 3 at about the same rate as the arx, but the manual detonation makes it way better. You can kill mediums and lights almost instantly as well as create traps (near the generator or even on the flagstand, lol) that are capable of doing 1500 damage. When the trap is set you can cloak and wait there until someone walks by, and you don't even decloak when you detonate it.

It's even great at chasing enemy flag carriers, since you can fire it at the ground far in front of them and just detonate it as they pass over it.

It still feels OP after the last patch, but it's really fun to use ^.^ It's the best weapon in the game, IMO.

Is it better than the Arx buster at taking out structures?

It's a little weaker than the Arx for destroying the enemy base, since it does 100 less damage per shot and the shots drop off more (shorter range). Also the INF can't avoid turret fire while firing, unlike the raider with his jammer pack.

Spammy weapon for tards.

Sounds like EatShanna has been owned by a few INFs. :)
98% of people copy other people's signatures and paste it as their own.
If you are one of the 2% that doesn't, copy and paste this into your sig.

Not really.

Inf who use it are actually pretty easy to deal with.

Hell, thanks to the increase in INFs who think this new weapon means they don't have to use stealth anymore and can just spam stickies I've been getting more doubles and triples..

It's only a problem when you're preoccupied and someone sticks you from behind(gigity).

Like I said, spammy weapon for tards, any self respecting INF uses the stealth spinfusor. :)

Seems like an okay weapon. No more annoying to play against than the stealth spinfusor.

To answer your question yes, it obviously is worth it.

Best gun in the game on the easiest to play class in the game.
