Only played 4 or 5 games in it but I prefer it the Lorraine. The quick double tap, faster reload, soft stats, small size and camo make it superior IMO to the Lorraine, the Lorraine feels too clunky for the current meta, it feels like a 50b.
Getting a quick 720 damage out with like a 20s reload feels far more practical for the current meta than 1300 damage in like 7.5s with like a 35s reload.
Games are too short, maps are too congested, tanks are too clumped up, opportunities are too breif for the Lorraine's clip to work IMO, you end up getting a couple of shots in the Lorraine most of the time at best, and then umming and ahhhing about going for the reload and being out the game for 35s or missing out on shots.
This thing just makes more sense to me, pop out, blap, blap, retreat, do it again in 20s.
Gun handling is a much of muchness, between the two, the Lorraine will be the better sniper of course, but popping out, stopping and aiming at stuff at medium to short the Bourrasque feels better to me, plus it can pseudo scout to a much larger to degree than the much larger, worse camoed Lorraine which feels much more squarely stuck in the support role.
This thing, despite its clear drawbacks, and potential annoyances, has massive potential IMO.
