Well the animation lock is a fair price if you consider that you can spam bombs dealing damage if it gets triggered automatically. It's more powerful than anything, since when your bomb explodes when it detects an enemy you can place another right away, and deal another 1.2k damage in a matter of seconds.

That's the only reason good engineer players only use this kit in pve and pvp by the way. It's really nasty, but if you're smart enough you will step away from bombs, the animation gives you enough time to run away. I have yet to see a bomb doing something significant in ground pvp when the opponent isn't a clueless guy who queued randomly.
