Please Nerf Molotovs

379 replies 1581 views Edited Jul 13, 2013

An instant kill weapon easily made simply by visiting two or three supply boxes- I feel as if this weapon is too overpowered. When you see (and if they're camping, you may not even get a chance to react) their molotov, you're either instantly killed, you narrowly dodge it, or they don't throw it/miss. I feel like the supply boxeshould only give materials for molotovs if a player is doing exceptionally horrible. It's too easy to consistently make molotovs and get free kills on players without an actual challenge. I wouldn't suggest to change the nature of how they work, but rather how easily they're acquired in the first place.

 

With over 2000 executions, I feel that this is really my only gripe with the multiplayer. And maybe the frequent Covert 3 players I see everywhere, myself included.

I think they are fine. Easy to dodge if you spot the guy throwing it at you. Just sprint to the side.

If the guy throwing them is a bad shot, of course it's easy to dodge.

If you aren't given materials to make a molotov, then you can't make a health kit, shiv, or modded weapon either...

I agree with splatteregg. Distance is also important for dodging cocktails

It's nothing but molotovs now. The last game I swear to god I spent more time dodging bombs and molotovs than actually playing the game.

"easily made by simply visiting two or three supply boxes"

 

...which is potentially triple and usually at least double the amount you need for most crafting items, and that's without considering that you're likely to extend that number if you want to craft a Shiv, upgrade your melee weapon, or make a Medkit.

 

And if you miss, it's gone. If you miss with your melee weapon, try again and it's an instant down. If you miss with your medkit... **bleep** are you on and can I have some?

 

Molotovs are pretty good, but they take careful aim and are slow-moving and easy to avoid. If your opponent can't see the Molotov coming and avoid it, then you deserve the kill anyway.

I think they are fine (and I get killed by them all the time).

 

I'm not sure if ND has made an official statement but I believe TLOU is primarily intended to be a game of stealth.  If an opponent surprises me by successfully sneaking up on me...then by all means, let him have the kill.  If I try to go head to head with someone and they take me out with a Molotov, then again, more power to them.  Like all weapons in this game, everyone has an equal opportunity to acquire and use them.
