Eh it's not that far off the stats of the vanilla Heavy Machine gun (120 flux 320 kinetic 450 range). I'd honestly say the weapon is a bit too similar to its vanilla counterpart. It could use something to further differentiate itself from the vanilla HMG.

I would have thought that burst fire rather than continuous and somewhat greater utility as PD counted, there.

I thought the HMG of vanilla WAS burst fire though

Four-round alternating bursts, yeah, as compared to 24 spread evenly across four barrels. The latter is better for shredding little stuff.

It's always felt pretty different in practice. YMMV, I'm happy to hear suggestions, but not every weapon needs to be completely unique.

Hunh, I could have sworn I fixed that - yeah, it's meant to be more in line with the HMG.

Enjoy while it lasts?
hmmm...really? damn. Never noticed that before. Well, anyways, i did some playtesting and it suffers from spread (as one would expect) so i think it's actually okay. I'm beefing it up with gunnery hullmod and skill. Without it i find it's horrible at destroying missiles/fighters - you'd think otherwise because of the silly high DPS.

It's always a trade-off: DPS for accuracy. A good way of balancing high-damage weapons.

I find it makes it a bit more fun. Although your fire isn't as accurate, you can't help but hit something with the sheer amount of bullet.
