It's very strong due to its ease of use. It takes a lot for me to challenge a sniper but if there's an arbalest on the other team I can't do anything about it. It will headshot through flinch, around corners, and with it's large hitbox/aim assist a chimpanzee could have 90% accuracy. The charge time is its only real downside, however with the 30fps/low tick servers/P2P this is almost a non issue. In quickplay it's not as bad since 6v6s are chaotic by nature, but in trials it's absolutely oppressive on console. Borderline unplayable if they're on the other team with swords and drang.
