This is a series that I will post on up to 1 time a week. I say something very controversial and you must pick a side. For my first debate me, I have probably one of the most infamous weapons in the game.
@Legend gaming909: 5 seconds is an extremely long time to kill someone with, especially for one of the most renowned primaries in the game. It is probably the most hyped up weapon in the game, but definitely not the best weapon.
@Anti-Four: I agree it isn't spammed in high levels. But there is so much hype around it. The average player who spends only a bit of time on this wiki doesn't know actually how good it is. If any average player got it, then they would probably be slightly disappointed. Plus, the Excalibur's "counterpart", the Black Mamba, is better right now. My point is, the hype around it isn't as necessary as it is.
Of course it is better than the Prehistoric Shotgun, but that is a limited ranged weapon. That is a different matter. However, your second point may be true, but the hype would make it sound like the best primary. This is mostly what I mean by underrated.
