Natascha is perfect for Defend intel or when providing covering fire but when a KritsKrieg is added its Perfect
This has been made more relevant considering that the Kritzkrieg now fills up 25% faster.
I havent had a chance to test out both to see a true different in actual gameplay, but going from what i saw i am really liking the new minigun. The slowdown/knockback makes a difference even though it does less damage, more so when you consider that it slows down targets enough for snipers and other classes to take advantage of this. As a teamwork type of weapon the new minigun has more advantages.
Now if you're focusing on quick offense, i might be more inclined to pick the regular minigun because under that setting every bit of damage that you can inflict makes a difference towards pushing forward faster.
(I would like to wait a couple of weeks and see how gameplay on the server changes. We should have a better opinion later on)
