I had the idea after playing a Jagermech, that a way to make autocannon 2 a viable weapon would be to increase damage.
At first I thought that making it do full damage out to maximum range would be good.
I revised this after some thought.
Make the A/C 2 do 1 point of damage from 720 metres to 2160 metres, instead of a linear drop to zero.
Reasoning: At long range the weapon is hopeless, damage-wise. This suggestion would make it at least useful. On smaller maps this would not affect much, as the enemy will be in range for full damage a lot of the time. And on the larger maps it will give the weapon some more effectiveness at range, as it should have.
With this in mind, the consumption of ammunition versus hit rate at range should be a fair balance. We are not all super accurate, and thus will not be hitting so much as to be making the weapon overpowered. On the other side of the coin, smaller maps will have shorter ranges, as they do, and thus the damage output should be balanced accordingly.
Ballistic weapons are not the easiest thing to hit with, nor should they be, but the A/C 2 is of little to no use as it is.
I quite like the A/C 2, but feel it is under strength as it is.
That's a thought from me, hope it made sense. <S>
