The Sidekick should have some discernable fire rate cap, even if it’s still really low. Some people have modded controllers and are incredibly productive with it.
I don’t want to see it nerfed to the ground, but the Sidekick at full-auto is nothing short of wild at close range. Bloom just doesn’t seem to affect it at such a high fire rate; or it dumps shots so fast that it’s moot.
Ain’t even mad at the people who buy the cheesey controllers; I just want the engagements to feel “fair”. The Sidekick is deleting me wholesale faster than I can counter with anything at close range including melee. I’ve only run into 3 or 4 of these (afaik) in my 33 hours played but it’s also the only legitimate time my deaths have felt like I had no control over the outcome.
