Wise decision. I'll go for the SMs for Special Ops but the rest of the event is underwhelming. Was expecting better since it has been a while since the last 3-stage event and since a decent weapon was offered. Maybe next time.

The game is spinning the wheels (or treading water) for the last several months.

Is the gear and weapon any good - NO!

Didn't scratch my base.

As GWD I played out for the SM's which won't be deployed just used for spec ops...

Calibrated Scope seems to make it just randomly wander off on it own :roll:

"Calibrated Scope" States "Snaps To Nearest Target", NO, it ambles over to the Target and then gives up following.
Just another waste of time supposed perk.

Kiwi has it right. A moving target has to be manually followed once the "snap" aligns the sights. It chases the enemy but a bit behind. Good for stationary headshot is the best option.

BTW: The oft criticized lost Supreme Pack parts raises its ugly head once again.This is how the event ended.

It's basically another doorstop, and it looks like I escaped lucky with parts drops compared to GWD...
