I’m sorry but… Assault secondaries are so damn bland and boring, it’s hard getting behind them. I almost never use secondaries (I know, I’m a trash tier Assault).
Markov’s Assault Rifle is… well, that one is self explanatory. Hyde’s Minigun is pretty lame compared to everything else in his kit. Parnell’s Rocket Launcher is boring to use when you compare it to his Shotgun (which is still pretty boring tbr). Torvald’s Mortar Strike is pretty legit, and that would be cool, if his Shotgun wasn’t boring as hell to use. Don’t even get me started on Lennox, the only hero who actually FORCES you to use her secondary in order to hit fleeing monsters. And Renegabe… I don’t know much about him. He seems to be the most interesting of the Assaults, and he’s technically supposed to be a Trapper!
The Assault class just feels so bland… not personality wise, obviously. Assault characters have some of the most colorful and diverse personalities in the game. But their weapons are… eh.
