Only for the first kickback of the match, the others have its cost cut by 0-3 making bargain kinda useless.

Bronze: 1 in stock
Silver: glow yellow
Gold: 2 in stock

Same stats as bargain, kinda. The difference being Bargain helps you get it faster (like someone said) and Overstock would help you still get medals even if you got full kickback (since if you're saving a smoke bomb and get 15 medals, that's 15 medals that are completely worthless).

Good in theory but that would make bargin better because bargin would always be guaranteed 2 medals cheaper making smoke 5 medals vs 7. with overstock gold that would mean at most it would do = to bargin but that is only if you get smokebomb filled up then get two more medals, which is not a guarentee.. to give overstock  a little something different the gold should be 3, but if you want a kickback quicker which is what bargin is you only can get it 2 cheaper. but if you are willing to use overstock and wait you can get 3. shh im not to good explaining stuff..

This was removed from the beta for a reason, it would be OP if it was useful, and if it isn't useful, why put it in the game...

 

But ofcourse this isn't about endless stacking of medals, but about overstock. But the same goes for that.

I think it's a good idea. I hate earning extra medal when I already have my kb.

a detiorating booster? that sounds like it would only be useful on your first kickback, then after that I could just switch to another loadout with bargain or something.

 

It should be a little better than bargain in the sense that you still have to earn the medals, whereas bargain you just earn 2 less medals.

 

That's my reason on why it should give more than 3 medals at gold level, but I still think it's a bad idea to have it in competitive. As if you have it to low, then it's just as useful/more useless than bargain and pointless, but if it is to much, then I can see it as being too good and induce constant uses of both low count kickbacks and offensive kickbacks.

If you need this kind of booster to help get Smoke Bombs ready, you need to work on you're game. Kickbacks are rewards not inherent. A lot of times I end the match with 25+ medals and only 1 SB use. I kind of understand the booster for the offensive kickbacks. But I don't want to see it.

On a side note: If you use SB a split second before you pick up a treasure from a chest, you will teleport and get the 3 medals. Kinda cool. Rarely useful. I've only found it appropriate on Facility at the chests near the T-Bolt, because of the heavy combat in those spots.

Sounds.... BAD, for good snipers this can be the most usefull booster, overstock+t bolt = unlimited kickback.

Isn't Bargain+T-Bolt essentially the same thing if you're a good sniper?
