Situational Awareness abbreviation = SA

Semi Auto abbreviation = SA

 

It's confirmed: any time that ND has something in a game that can be abbreviated as SA, it's going to be unbelievably obnoxious for the gameplay.

Sorry, semi-auto is OP. Has no drawbacks, easiest to use, beats all other weapons consistently in practical play.

Easiest gun to have kickback when being shot at, the person using the weapon makes it easy or hard to use, not if your opponents are actually competent.

I think nothing in the game balance-wise should be altered. Leave it as it is ND. I've been killed by Burst rifles, Hunting Rifles, Molotovs, Bombs, and bow users while using my Semi Auto.

 

The Semi Auto is very deadly in the hands of people with good aim, just like any other gun. I don't want this game to end up with 18 patches trying to fix one thing and breaking another with each patch.

SA is high-ish power, but quite limited ammo.  yes, 7 is 2 downs and an execution if you are a deadeye shot, but it's a bit tougher to be that efficient under normal circumstances.  

 

i see all weapons in the game as having trade-offs, perhaps the SA is just well-suited to your playstyle (it is mine), which makes it seem more powerful.  


It's not all that limited for ammo.  If you add headshots to it it's 3 downs and an execution with the starting ammo.  On a full clip it's 5 downs.  And it's only one headshot and one bodyshot for a down, AND it takes no time at all to get those 2 shots off.  And it has the accuracy to do this from across the map.  All in all it's a weapon that excels at everything.  It outperforms pretty much every other gun, and there are no drawbacks to using it compared to any other weapon.

Semi Auto is a great gun and doesn't need changing. I appreciate that gun!

No, it's the easiest to use intrinsically. Player skill is irrelevant when discussing the actual effectiveness of the weapon.

 

If you take two players of equal skill, one with the semi-auto and the other with any other starter, the semi-auto player will win the vast majority of the time. It's simply a superior gun, plain and simple.

And you have physically conducted this experiment with peer review and proper probability control? Or are you just saying what will support your cause like always? Burden of proof is on you and using that no need to nerf thread as a control, the majority of people are fine with everything the way it is.

The hunting rifle can beat the semi-auto.

The Hunting Rifle can down a Semi Auto user from a distance. The Burst Rifle can down a Semi Auto user in CQC. The Semi Auto is simply a versatile weapon that happens to dominate in most mid-range combats. And since most maps favour such a weapon, it is mostly used, that's all.
