We all know that the Cricket was the most overpowered and the most hated weapon back then (2014-2015). After that It has been heavily nerfed by DLE, which started a wide-spread controversy in the comunnity. So last night, I tested out the Cricket with 45% damage buff (Wasp helmet 25% + CCP VI jackert and pants 20%) and noticed It is ridiculously underpowered, even with all these buffing equipments! It can't even kill Masked Viper ( the dude with 12% extra health) within 1 shot at mid - range. It even takes 3-4 shots to kill foes at long range lol. I can only 1-hit KO bots at close-range. And the gun is even more terrible in multiplayer, given that almost everyone is wearing stuffs that give 20+% health now.
Well, I think if DLE could bring back the old, original Noisy Criket (with extremely powerful damage) It would be great. Given that there are so many powerful weapons in the game now, It wouldn't matter whether the gun is OP or not anymore, and It would be fun playing with this unique weapon :)
