Instead of a cool down it should have a animation for pulling it out of the background. It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't instant

I hope your joking, Drake does not need any sort of nerf. If anything he needs a buff.

Drakes barrels are annoying but that's about it, now a corner barrel ak spam is ice pack worthy but it doesn't need to be nerfed. Though the barrel does sometime absorb my radec's lvl 1 which mind boggles me.

I play Sackboy and he has two ways of making the barrel his own, so I really only have a problem with it if it is a good Drake. He can also reflect Drake's bullets.

LOL at the kid who said it has literally 0 cool down time and at the kid who said he needed a buff. Drake is already very solid. And he can have one barrel out at a time, seems legit to me. Certain characters can counter it too. Cole can absorb it, drake can use his barricade, radec can safely blow it up from a distance, an you can like block it or jump over it. But there's no stopping a good drake he hits you with a barrel and youre gonna be hurting.

Do I assume this sums it up?

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I just noticed as I start out with Sly that if you use Sly's up cirlce, the barrel will just bounce off you and you can even use it as cover as you move closer to Drake and explode both your barrel and drake's barrel for extra explodey fun.

Re: Drake's barrel

Well, I honestly don't understand how the barrel is "so easy to deal with." Every time I face a Drake, I devote my entire match to trying to thwart him and his barrel (jump over, dodge, projectiles, throws, you name it), and I still fail miserably most of the time. It's unique properties, while honestly is kind of cool, just make it too strong of an offensive AND defensive tool.

I think it should do any, all, or a combination o the following: 1) flatten instead of trip up, taking away the cheap AK combo; 2) not explode when blocked or shot; it should just roll on through and off into the distance, only to fade out after a certain time/distance; 3) like someone else said, only be a ground attack; his air barrel is way worse than ground variant ; 4) if it is destroyed by an opponent, give some sort of reward for their efforts (delayed follow-up barrel?, small AP gain?, something!)

The thing that I wish most players would realize is that Drake has other moves in his arsenal. There has to be other ways to succeed with him, right? I absolutely love his zipline attack. It's really fun to use, and it's pretty effective too.

Most characters have some kind of spamtastic spammy spam move that they can abuse. Welcome to Playstation All Stars.
