Summary: The Anubis had a bug introduced well over a year ago, and it was never fixed:
Description: Back when the HVR was being nerfed in 2015 the HVR received a nerf that made it take longer to achieving full accuracy in marksmanship from running or sprinting, but somehow this accidentally got applied to the Anubis as well. To be clear, it was confirmed that it was indeed a bug that the Anubis got this nerf. RP claimed to have fixed this glitch, but intentionally only reduced it, claiming that it had to stay there for balance reasons. It's hard to believe that RP actually believed this was a balance issue as they weren't aware of this bug when balancing the gun, and the gun was tied for worst sniper rifle before the patch (and still is tied for worst, albeit it's tied with a different gun.) The gun has gone on like this for a year and shortly after the nerf you stopped seeing Anubises ever, as in I've never seen one since. Virtually everyone who used the Anubis regularly will agree that the slight accuracy buff and range buff were far outweighed by the nerf to Marksmanship Mode (though I was the only person I know of who actually mained the Anubis before the bug):
If it is OP with the bug fixed as the team claimed revert all of the changes to the Anubis, because the gun was fine before the patch and is simply unusable now: APB is a game based on niches, and the Anubis is now a gun without a niche due to the removal of its role as a mobile sniper rifle. This is not a bug that should have been ignored in the first place, but due to the fact that the people handling it clearly didn't understand the consequences, and it's obscure enough of a gun that they figured it didn't matter, RP has refused to fix it despite the fact that they were aware of it. Note that the N-ISSR-B has the same (or better) aiming speed after sprinting that the Anubis used to have and has a better TTK and now has the same range as the Anubis. This is clearly a bug, there's no denying it, and the fact that it wasn't fully removed could only have been due to not considering the variables correctly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Equip the Anubis.
2. Realize that RP lied about fixing the issue and made the gun terrible.
3. Cry because it used to be such an fun gun but now has no redeeming qualities.
How many times have you recreated this bug: 2 out of 2 times that RP acknowledged the bug.
Results: The gun being worse than before it was "buffed" because RP refused to fix a bug for "balance reasons."
Expected Results: The bug actually being fixed.
*EDIT* as an added note, this isn't technically a bug, but you seem to have made the center-dot of the crosshair more transparent, making it very difficult to see, which makes it difficult to aim as the huge white things that surround the red dot don't actually help you aim (while I like them, they really aren't helpful.)
*EDIT2* as an additional bonus bug report that I might make a full thread on later if this gets fixed, the Anubis is one of the few guns in the game that can have negative spread, which seems to affect its hit regulation. This is especially noticeable with CJ3 or HB3.
