Potential change to BE3?

12 replies 183 views Edited Jul 28, 2014

Bomb Expert 3 annoys me greatly. Especially that ppl abuse it just for "look how many shiv kills I got!" It isnt impressive, bc it is extremely cheap. Its already hard enough to avoid since the smoke bombs explode immediately, but this immunity makes it far much worse and gives so many "outs" for ppl using it IMO.

 

 

 (I tried search bar didnt see anything saying what I will be, if I missed it though, I apologize for a re-post)

 

However, I propose that we change the "immune to own smoke bombs" to "stun lasts 50% longer" (or whatever % would work). This still gives BE3 a great use, for you could possibly shiv 2 ppl with 1 smoke bomb, greater chance to run away, have more time to get a shiv (ie, if obstacles in way/further distance/revive teammate beforehand), but it takes away the cheap 'throw smoke bomb at feet/3 yards then shiv' (or really any weapon while we are hopelessly stunned)

 

And if that just would not work, and BE3 stays the way it is, then there should be a new survival perk. Ill just make up an example. It would have to be more than just give immunity to smoke bombs bc it would be very limited in its use (like CT only useful when crouched AND enemy in listen mode).

My alternate idea of a new skill:

 

MineSweeper 1: Does not set off placed bombs if crouched.

MineSweeper 2: Does not set off placed bombs if crouched and stun from enemy smoke bomb reduced by 50% (or whatever works).

MineSweeper 3: Does not set off place bombs if crouched and can dismantle enemy bombs for parts (ie, just remake the bomb and place it or use parts for other things), and stun from enemy smoke bombs reduced by 50%.

 

 

 

Granted BE3 is'nt that big a deal as is, but just some thoughts I had. What do y'all think?

Change not triggering the bombs with putting a delay on the explosion and I might want to think about it a little.

Sure sure. I wasnt saying do it exactly like I proposed lol. I spent 5 minutes on that. Just a brainstorm to get thoughts going around the idea.

 

Delaying would prob be more balanced I agree, but in that case I would say you dont have to be crouched then otherwise you still might not have time to stand up and run away making it useless lol

I think Bomb expert 3 should automatically put like a gas mask on a player face in order to inform us he is using bomb expert.

When everyone complains about everything in the game, what's OP? I'm surprised no one is complaining about PAZ.

Offering an alternative doesn't mean I'm calling OP. I just think it's cheap and annoying so stating my opinion and a possible alternative. Just ideas.

Nid will cry UNLESS -

We take Evoslips idea (gas mask when using BE3) and replace the gas mask with a chicken mask!

To the OP, i dont agree with anything you're saying.
BE3=5 LPs. Thats extremely overpriced for what it gives you, an easy shiv kill once in awhile.

I think theres another glitch with smoke bombs. You know how ur immune to one if you are swinging a modded 2x4 and connect with someone, well the same thing happens when you punch. You have to face your opponent and hold L2 and press square to lunge punch, you dont even have to connect. You fly away magically without being smoked. At least i THINK its what happens.

Test it pls.
