I just entirely switched my loadouts to non-stacking anymore cause I thought it was weird but had no idea it would stick until like 5 minutes later.
Other then that, I can see why some people would be upset with the whole team safe thing, it was never a main staple of my plays but I would use it every now and then.
The moving of the booster slots is the one thing in this update that has really irritated me....I mean, I don't recall too many people complaining about the boosters and what slots they were in...
My biggest issue is that now it seems most people are using regen in slot 2 and creating bullet sponges everywhere. Can't blame them though....There really isn't much left in slot 2 that is very useful.
It's just frustating....I pour half a clip into somebody while they zig-zag run at me....Then they roll, hit me with like one bullet and kill me with one punch. I know half of it is lag....But lag mixed with regen is just a bad combination.
Just not sure what the rationale was for moving the boosters around.
ND claims there’s nothing they can do…so apparently you’ll be able to roll with Double Beast Mode for good (or you screw up and change Slot 1 by mistake).
I would have kept in my back pocket to use against laggers or chest campers but alas, I did not actually have Beast Mode assigned in any of my loadouts when the patch came….which is probably for the best, it would have been too tempting to use.
Hey ND, I'm going to keep using double beast mode with the speed mask on until you force it out of my hands. I need something to combat against the heavy laggers you allow on your game.
I think laggers need more addressing than double booster users. How about cracking down on laggers, or make a regional multiplayer option. Lord knows how many times I get killed after successfully ducking or getting behind a wall by someone with clan tags of other countries.
Atleast your honest. Lag is more bs than some pseudo-leprechaun.
Don’t get me wrong. I share your frustration. I’m not sure I’d have the willpower to resist using it…especially in Plunder since, in my opinion, that mode’s gameplay is the most broken/affected by the lagger/tryhard double whammy. I suspect that if the option had been open to me, I would have used the double booster to start all Plunder matches so that it was ready to go as soon as it became clear the laggers and tryhards were out in force. I’m kind of relieved that I don’t have the option.
A group of my friends (one of them did have Beast Mode in a loadout when the patch came out) tried it out in a custom match to see the effect and it is nothing short of spectacular. Strangely, the double effect sometimes doesn’t kick in until after the first time you’ve died. The astounding speed combined with the ability to melee someone with the idol is truly remarkable.
