I really like it as a second wind weapon, since it's got so much power and gets to max accuracy so quickly. Outside of that, I don't really use it much, and I much prefer the BNK-3R's SMG for general play. --- 2007 - 2008 NHL Saturday Picks Champion
I don't care what extra abilities this gun has, it's the single most annoying piece of s*** in the entire f***ing game.
As the wiki says, even if you turn the game volume to zero, the gun still makes it's incredibly annoying noises, and those noises can transfer to other guns in your inventory and the only way to stop that is to end the game or get into a vehicle.
I'll take a Morningstar in my inventory long before I'll accept a Bane. The Morningstar is funny, the Bane just makes me want to punch the screen. . --- What's the purpose in owning a Grenade Launcher? The sheer inability to continue life without it ! ! !
I like it. I usually play with sound almost mute anyways. I got an appropriately levelled Bane right before Angel Core which made that area a lot easier. I saved the Bane mission on my second playthru for either lvl 72 or higher OP Bane (currently level 70 so hopefully get it soonish).
