Instead I mostly use another auto rifle that probably had a bit more kickback than the Shingen-C but was fun to use nonetheless. With the servers down, I can no longer recall the name (starts with a C). I did take a screenshot of it on my phone, but the name wasn't included. I believe it started with an "A".
The Singen-C auto rifle is just ridiculous. It unloads lead like a wood chipper, it has 40+ bullets in one clip, it's amazing accurate (especially when you get the upgrade of better accuracy while ADS), and the reload time in extremely quick (especially with quick reload arm armor). This is simply a balancing issue. I simply believe that if anyone I encounter in PVP were to engage me in combat WITHOUT the Shingen-C, they probably have a 10% chance of living. The weapon just shreds through people's health bars and the only downfall of the weapon is ammo consumption! I feel that with such a high cap mag, maybe the accuracy should be more erratic? Or maybe lower down the damage a bit more. Because who would use a pulse rifle, or even a scout rifle ever with the existence of the Shingen rifle obliterating all in PVP? Thanks Bungie!
