    Even after the new updates, this weapon is still one of the most horrifying and disappointing weapons in the game, for multiple reasons:
    -Lack of 360 traverse
    -Laser-like aim, but instead the bullets just drop
    -Not enough damage ( because it can't hit anything )
    -Just doesn't look cool enough

    This weapon needs to be better for a Grade 3 weapon in Hawkeye, and the solutions are quite simple:
    -Keep the hitbox, but make the aiming like the repeater and hail-fires
    -Give it the ability to calculate drop ( it already has 90 degree aim upwards so it shouldn't be a problem )
    -Give it a tiny damage buff for each bullet so it feels like a autocannon
    -Make the bullets bigger and/or light up like tracers so the player doesn't feel like they are shooting grains of rice at an enemy

    That last one is vital. It needs to shoot prettier.

    Aerhetics is very important. Even if a weapon can kill you in one hit, no one gonna use it if it looks like it doesnt kill you in one hit

    One of the things I really liked about the Autocannon was its ability to aim/rotate 360 degrees. I wish there was a way to bring it back without the gun needing a huge hitbox...
