Verdict = more useful than they get credit for but could use a duration buff.

These things are actually awesome for games like Hardpoint/HQ when enemies are bunched together in an enclosed space and are likely to be in corners. Struggled to find much use for them outside of those modes though they did come in handy for capturing flags on Dom.

If they had constant tracking (like the VSAT), I would be a very happy man.

They either need a duration buff or they should work on your teammate's minimap to give it a more supportive use.

Putting the feed on your teams map is pretty much the only way I'd use them. Otherwise I can't see using them instead of the other tacticals/lethals.

W@W was awesome for gun diversity. You saw the MP40, the MP40, and the MP40. - Gritzblitz56

They need to be visible to the entire team

I think they should either buff the duration or make red arrows appear on teammates map and give you sensor assist points or something. Or both.

Or they could make the explosion actually do a little more damage? idk. but it needs a little more to make it competitive.

I agree with this, as far as either duration or teammates see them.

I have about 40 more kills that I need to finish this challenge and they are a struggle sometimes.

I like them, but its not something I will run much after finishing the challenge.

They are actually pretty useful sometimes like when capping B on Plaza I will launch one down the stairs and watch the nightclub route, this way if someone tries to run up the stairs and stop me I know exactly where they are and can switch my attention to that route. Kind off like having 2 routes covered.
