I just came back to the game since not playing since launch. Played all of D1 though. Loved the queensbreaker bow in D1, so was pretty excited when i got the arbalest recently. I think its fun. I'll get out played by a decent sniper more often than not. Also, i dont know what you guys are talking about with the "no flinch". I feel that thing flinches harder than a sniper rifle. I just enjoy the gun because i honestly dont see many people using it and its a bit challenging. Yes, it one shots with a hs, but so do snipers minus a charge time. I dont see how this gun can be considered "sweaty" at all.
