Re: Machete/2x4

Nov 13, 2013
Half the points? I have had matches where I only have to buy the machete once. I know you meant load out points. But the flamehrower costs FAR more parts to use.

The machete is a great weapon. Judging it on its own is not fair. Used intelligently with other weapons it is amazing. Its fast and has speedy recovery. If you flank a team with a silenced weappn and a machete they are all dead.

thats why I use it with the silenced shorty. Even people in armour. Shoot them in the legs, slash once, down. I took down three people in a row with it yeserday.

Or for example if you throw a bomb at a group and dont down everyone. You can quite confidenlty charge in there with armour and finish everyone off with no trouble.

I think they should just give the machete 3 uses by default. Instead of 2

Ill tell you why the flamethrower owns the machete: (though im not trying to take away from what you said)

 

Xflamethrower cost 2. machete cost 4

Xflamethrower needs no booster help. machete needs brawler 2 (2 points vs 7 points)

Xflamethrower has much better range. machete has no range

Xflamethrower cost much less to maintain

 

Thats my opinion.

For balance i think machete should cost 3 not 4, and should come with 3 uses not 2.

Well sure it does if you give two people each one and set thme head to head witrh full health. But that's not the point.

I downed a flamethrower user with it the other day. I saw him coming for me. Shot him. Ducked behind some cover so he couldn't hit me (the flamethrower is notoriously bad at shooting over horizontal cover) then sprinted out and whacked him when he ran out of juice.

The machete doesn't nee booster help at all. The only perk I use with it is covert training and silenced shorty. One extra hit and 10% health back every time you hit someone isn't going to help you a great deal. maybe in those 50 50 situations. but then idealy you shouldn't be getting into those.

The inability of a flamethrower user to properly confront you doesn't boast for the machete, but indicts him or praises you.

 

The machete is weak.

Machete can kill 4 people if your clever?

For half the points a flamethrower will kill 4 and you barely have to aim.

You dint have to down a room with bombs to kill everyone in it...if you're clever.

I love the gimmick weapons, but machete is weak. If you were in a tournament match, would you equip it over the other weapons?


1. Purchaseables can't be used in the tournament

2. You won't catch me in a tournament for multiple reasons

a.I'm in college right now so I can't commit to it

b.I don't have an AMAZING team of 4 people

c.I don't play this game THAT seriously....

3.I'm finished.... =)
