so is an entire burst to the head like an insta-kill?

It has the fastest potential time to down a player outside of the one-shot-down weapons and the assault rifle.  

 

Using it to do that can be pretty difficult in a live environment though.

Is the whole thing were it doesn't do much damage against armour gonna be getting fixed? And yeah I always knew it wasn't worthless just due to its potential with headshots.

If it's 5 bullets to down, and headshots are triple, then 5/3 = 1.8, so 2 bullets to down as headshots.

As far as I can tell, there is no actual bug/glitch with the weapon against armor.  It seems to be working properly, it just sucks against it.

 

Part of that might be the third shot that would be needed to break the chest armor hitting the head armor instead, knocking off neither piece.

 

It's something we're definitely looking at as a potential "buff" to the weapon, but we've got some other issues to deal with first for our next patch.  We'll do a balance update after the next big patch (Hopefully).

Well it only really needs a buff to be able to desk with armour right now you have to sink a good amount if ammo I to someone with it to get it off.
