I like using SMGs a lot due to their ADS movement speed and pretty reliable hipfire spread.
No wait, I mean I like using the Gatekeeper. I can't for the life of me figure out what exactly is the saving grace of the Desperado. It has lower base damage and one less bullet in the clip by default compared to the Gatekeeper. It might shoot faster but it's RoF alone doesn't compensate for what it trades for that RoF.
I can actually kill Mighties with the Gatekeeper when I flank them, even with body armor. But the Desperado seems to struggle to even do that. Hell, even unarmored it might eek out a kill. Barely.
Does the community have anything positive to say about this gun? At least there are two factions of Shredder and Jackhammer users. But the Gatekeeper just overshadows the Desperado completely.
