Its not super powerful, but its added shots on a target and one more radar blip. Can turn a "man, i was a second away from winning" into a win. Plus you can be totally behind cover, and spawn it above and past cover. Fun fact about it.
That being said, I think its relatively ineffective compared to the other AA's and don't use it. But it does have uses, and I suppose some playstyles can make it work.
