What weapon will SPUF be complaining about in one year's time?

It's become apparent recently that the current crop of weapons considered to be OP by the majority doesn't have much to do with updates, but rather the shifting whims of the SPUF community. Now I'm not saying that there aren't any OP weapons, or even that SPUF calls certain weapons OP that actually are fine. But certainly it is possible for a weapon previously considered OP to now be considered fine even when its stats do not change (usually because there was an initial overreaction or because complaining about the weapon has become wearyingly cliche). More confusingly, it is possible for weapons that have been in the game for years with only mild grumbling to suddenly be seen as game breaking (as seen with the recent attitudes toward the gunslinger and degreaser).

So with all that in mind it seems certain that there are weapons currently in the game that we don't have any problem with, but which we will absolutely loathe in a year's time. They might even be weapons from the original achievement unlocks... I wouldn't be surprised if the kritzkrieg is called OP in a year for instance. But what do you think the complaints of the future will be?

One thing's for sure; they'll still be complaining about the Pomson/Wrangler/Gunslinger.

Seriously, why doesn't that loadout have its own nickname yet, like trollgineer?

Propably the Axtinguisher.

I'd love to say the RTR, but it is really broken right now.

Why? It's one of the most balanced weapons ingame, since it actually requires skill get a constant advantage out of it.

I think the stock flamethrower is a safe bet.

I think SPUF's hate will concentrate on the Loch's 1 hit kills for light classes.

The claim is that the ambassador far out classes the revolver in every situation

In a year they will of re-done Natascha and we will be ing about that.



But really, there is no telling. Someone will cry, and the bandwagon will rev its engines, and we will be headed somewhere.

I can already see the claim: "It's a direct hit that doesn't require any skill!"
