The Semi is Overpowered

177 replies 1155 views Edited Feb 14, 2014

While waiting for the 1.06 patch / Left Behind to download, figure I'd upload a video at the worst possible time.

 

No Purchased Upgrades, No Purchased Armor, No Purchased Ammo, just an OP Silenced Semi (well that's not entirely true, there's some HR footage at the end also around 6:02)

It's a semi auto rifle. What do you expect? It's the jack of trades. It should be the best all around weapon in the game. Thats what it's meant to be.

True, being medium range a semi should be a "jack of all trades" but at the same time "a master of none."

 

It's not supposed to be better than a burst rifle at short range. Or able to precisely hit a hunting rifle / military sniper from its optimal long range.

A weapon is only as strong as its user. There's plenty of good snipers who can outplay e.g. outplay a burst-rifle or semi-auto at close range, yet nobody is complaining. Besides, the ability of the burst-rifle to down in one burst makes it very powerful, if you are not skilled enough to use the gun properly then it's your fault.

^ It is not better than a burst rifle at short range. It depends on player's skill.

Revolver also PRECISELY hits hunting rifle/military snipers from its optimal range too. Let's nerf that too, shall we?

Btw, the fact that a guy uses a sniper shouldn't be a free card for him to win a long range battle. If you handicap "jack of all trades" guns like the revolver and semi, you have no way of competing against snipers; making it easy for anyone to get by just doing bodyshots left and right.
