As the poll says, do you (the people who have unlocked it) think its worth the point?  I want the sentry drones so I'm going up that tree already but I dunno if the Ganz would be a waste.  I've used it a few times and modded it into SP and don't see much of an improvement.  It takes longer to get accuracy because of the slow ROF, but it its very powerful.  Has anyone found it to be better or worse than the defaults?

I haven't found it all that useful, and mostly use the LMG's now.

Also, see here for another discussion about the MG's.

The Ganz was my first unlock and was pretty dissappointing. The stock weapons seem to have a higher accuracy   while standing and crouching. Also every little movement with the Ganz causes you to lose accuracy. Its only high point is the amount of damage but this is offset by its low rate of fire. I hardly ever choose it over the stock support MGs. The sentry drones, on the other hand, are very effective if used correctly such as in the top entrance on the titan while defending.

Hope this helps!

The sentry drones are the best fucking thing in this game. I was guarding one of the top entrances earlier today with my drone out and another teammate next to me, when 6 enemy all came down the top shaft at the same time. It was awesome mowing them all down in a spit second.

Ganz ftl.

I have everything below it unlocked, but I won't unlock it.  I've tried it as a field upgrade a few times and I've been nothing but disappointed.  The stock guns are definitely better, imho.

I use the ganz when defending, I like it better for defence then the LMGs... but other then that it was a very dissapointing unlock...

I (like TMo) had everything below the Ganz unlocked and tried it out on a field unlock. It absolutely rocked and I couldn't wait to get my next rank to unlock it permanently. I now consider it to be the worst mistake I have made to date.

The accuracy is poor, the rate of fire is poor, the gun is poor. The stock LMGs are superior in all ways to the Ganz.

Knowing EA/DiCE it will probably receive a masive boost at some point in the future thanks to a patch but until that time It'll sit unused in my inventory.

when you deploy the sentry drone, do you get the points for what it kills?

I have it, and dont like it.
Ive read other places that it has a fireing rate of 600/min vs 900/min on regular mg, which support my feeling that it fires slower. Its suppose to be more accurate than the standard after a little fireing, but with my playing style that has little effect and is rather worthless to me. My feeling is that its harder to hit with on an overall basis, and thats more important than in the situations it might be better.
But there are people who like it, i would try to use it as a field upgrade first for a while before commiting a unlock to it. There are more useful unlocks than the Ganz, imo.

The ganz is more accurate but the biggest advantage is that it overheats slower and "looses accuracy" slower. With other 2 if you dint fire for sec or two the croshair and accuracy go back to standard. But the ganz stays dead accurate for a longer period of time when NOT firing. And with slower overheating you can basically shoot for like 3 sec, pause 1-2 shoot 3 pause 1-2 etc until your clip runs out. And you'll be accurate as a sniper.

So in future thy will probably (hopefully) reduce the accuracy of all 3 making the Ganz much better then the other 2.

No do get it. It is the best thing ever for Titan defense. Last night I went 30:6 only using it, knife, pistol and one sentry drone.

I have the Ganz and it's a POS.  The sentry drone is cool though.  Do NOT get the Ganz.

You can only field unlock items 1 unlock above your current unlocks.  e.g. if you have unlocked the RDX, you can field unlock the netbat fade delay thing, but not the active camo or the lambert.

Don't get this gun.

The drone is good,when caming the side of the main hall it makes me feel safe.
