Actually Im tired to see non SM factions complain after the most matches that stalker is so op. If they lose, they always find a way to say that LSM won that match because they have stalker bolters (its like to say that AC cannon wins battle for chaos, if 2 players uses it). While stalker could be useful in specific situations like sniping heavy weapons or defending the point from balconies, it will never beat simple bolter in such game as EC (where you have to rush, push forward and cant linger in one spot for more than a few seconds). I tried and played both weapons and believe me..Bolter > stalker in 90% of cases. Loadout with CQC mod and drum magazine. Along with relic armour which helps you to survive in many shoot outs when the difference usually is 1-2 bolts.
