Jakob Lynch is underrated as a 10T master because people run him with the wrong loadout. There are three main styles of play, each attributed to his limited upgrades. Only one of them will win you games consistently and change how your opponent’s play.

Ditch Endless Hunger – it is hurting your game. It’s a cool upgrade, but it doesn’t bring enough to the table to make Lynch work. Terrifying (All) 12 is a minor card sink (at best).
