Actually, I forgot the ammo count in the OP. From the weapons trailer it's 2/6, but it might have more reserve shots than that.
Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. My quote rocks your socks.

Not to revive a semi-dead thread, but, since it will actually be something you can get regularly, the Shrieker will probably be a godly counter to the Phase Rifle if people learn to use it. Even without that, all you really need is someone who has a highly mobile class and some close-quarters weaponry. TCon had very few places with only one way in, and it seems like there are even less of them in Con2. So defending a sniper who can only kill someone about every 10 seconds at least would take a lot of teammates, and thus would not be a viable strategy overall.

Does Con2 have a killcam, I forget. If it does, Phase Rifles are even more screwed, as you know right where they are the moment they kill one person.

Without ammo caches, camping with low-ammo-capacity weapons is going to be much less viable overall, so this should do quite well in counterbalancing the sheer power of the Phase Rifle.

These aren't dead until they archive.

The Shrieker will be a good anti-camping weapon overall, simply because there can be more of them now and camping will be a little more prevalent. Being able to put 4 shots with splash damage on a long-range target quickly is pretty useful. No killcam, btw.

Surprise! while scoping, you can pierce through the Aegis Device's shield

^Well that's no good. :/
I apologize for whatever I just said.

Hopefully you have to charge it up to pierce the shield. That would make sense, since it's kind of a wall. I'm pretty stoked for this weapon though.

Also, its been said that the Phase Rifle is tricky, and can only penetrate one layer, and that it has a limited range that it can go to lock-on you.
