i've started using radec as well. been using him close range as well. Half the time I use his sniper is on accident. when I mean to use his neutral Triangle instead. He has so many great options I dont even know why most people just spam the sniper. --- Its Jak, not Jack, not Jax, Jak
Ya it has far less to do with radec being op and much much more to do with players not knowing how to deal with him. Even if you personally can handle a ranged attacker like him with no problem, if the other 2 players are clueless they will continue brawling with each other across the screen and let radec rack up insane AP while he camps a corner with sniper shots
Even if you're not going to attack him personally, as long as the group as a whole fights on top of g radec he can't do much but spend the whole match running back n forth trying to get range.
