For me, I reckon my best defense against powerful weapons (I don’t feel that any of the weapons are overpowered) is not to get shot….stealth and caution are my watchwords.
Agree with this. just remember the 5 d's of TLOU: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!
I've probably been killed more times with a bow than a semi-auto anyway just due to not knowing where the opponant was.
Oh and my watchwords are cheese and beef
The semi is fine. The bow is fine. The revolver is fine. The burst rifle is fine. You see where I'm going here.
All none purchased loadout weapons are FINE.
If you kill me with any of them, it's a fair kill. There ARE issues with the game, but basic loadout wraps are certainly not one of them.
Personally, I've found that if I shoot someone in the face with any of the weapons provided, all seem to be quite effective at getting the job done.
In the EMP v Infectus FN match last night, all six players used the SAR.
That'll tell you something.
It tells me they don't understand the effectiveness of the bow.
They could use either and do equally well. It's just that the bow has a slightly heavier learning curve.
Stop wanting nerfs for the Bow
In U3 you wanted nerfs for the Dragon for no reason, just because it was a 2 bodyshot kill and 1 in the head
Now it's the Bows turn? cmon
About the semi out, is no doubt the best weapon in the game, jack of all trades, it kills in 3 shots and it's very easy to use but like many others I don't want anything done to it, it's not OP, same goes for any other weapon, Bow, revolver, hunting rifle, etc
Change one thing the game overall balance will be screwed, DON'T CHANGE A THING ND!!
I fkn hate people talking **bleep**, if You suck at the game, **bleep** and **bleep** and keep the player pool full of pro's with pure love for this game and actually know how to **bleep** play it. Everyone asking for nerves should be shot in the kneecap. Weapon balance is great, its better than most games out there. Just pick the weapon that fits You best and enjoy the **bleep** game damnit.
Ahh the bow.
To me the bow is the MOST irritating weapon to get killed by in this game.
I'll take 20 molotov deaths to one &&^% bow death.
You know what though, its not over powered. Just because I don't like getting killed by it has nothing to do with it being OP.
Also, I see a reoccurring theme here along with the molotov.
Molotovs kill players that call themselves elite players. You know what, ITS SUPPOSE TO.
It's a craft-able power weapon and it does its job the way its suppose to, easy enough for new players along with vets.
I don't see any problem with it.
Semi auto? Really?
I use the semi auto and a friend of mine not to name drop here ( this will be the first and last time) , Scott7000 got separated the other day. Scott stands by the burst rifle as being the best gun. When I ran into him, he flat out DESTROYED my semi auto even at long range. I couldn't even shoot back. Every one knows hes a good player. I'm an okay player and I couldn't even compete with this so called over powered semi auto. He can correct me if I'm wrong, but he also HATES the bow, never have I even heard him talk about the semi.
Everyone hates some other weapon, or thinks some thing is overpowered, it does not mean it is.
I could care absolutely less what ELITE players use on frag nation. Thats frag nation, not match making for this game.
There are more people that play this game non-competitive then there are on that gaming league.
If there weren't you would have to join because you cant find a match.
If I wanted to play frag nation I would, I don't.
If you cater to one group of people you will loose the others.
I can name nearly 40 people from my friends list that left uncharted because of the gmal nerf.
This player base does not need to be lowered.
I am absolutely fed up with this forum and the arrogance that is soaked in it. I cant come on here without seeing posts about my skeeel and your skeeel. I'm elite and your not, you weapon is a scrub weapon, your a noob, he's a noob.
I really think its high time we let NAUGHY DOG do their job.
I don't care how good anyone is at this game or how elite anyone thinks they are, or how many youtube videos anyone puts up showing how good they are, none of us works for ND, has the numbers, access to true stats, or has created a game of the year title.
