Now let me get this out of the way. I love Tarkov and I appreciate the hard work that Battlestate is putting into their game, this post reflects my thoughts on the Mosin and the backlash surrounding it.
I believe that the Mosin is perfectly balanced as it was first implomented. Due to the lowering frequency of wipes we're experiencing a sort of power curve crisis. New players stand no chance against long time players with high level gear. The Mosin is a perfect bridge between the demographic of new players and the heavily geared ones. Older players should run the risk of losing their gear always and play by skill and not by said gear. Of course we could go back to the wipe system but I believe introducing balancers like the Mosin are a more streamlined and fair approach.
