I used to totally disagree with no power weapons any deathmatch mode b/c normally in TDM (and even Hardcore) it's dumb. If there are no power weapons in TDM/HC then it's just a camp fest. You could say power weapons are the "objectives" of TDM modes.
But I am told that in FFA certain players spawn much closer to power weapons thus presenting an unfair advantage to them. I can't verify that this is true since I don't play FFA, but maybe they can put a single power weapon in the middle of the map to encourage everyone to fight for it.
All that said, fix matchmaking before anything else.
Luckily I got the RPG, so I nuked him. Ran to the Mag5 spawn, o**bleep**itsnotthere, get shot.
I just got killed 3 times in a row by some steelfisting pistole idiot.
Get it first brah.
It's not always possible to reach the power weapon first. Besides I think it's really lame the first thing you have to do is sprint to a power weapon to gain the upperhand. It should be rewarding to play with skill not power weapon spamming.
Remove? No, then there'd be no map movement/camping wouldn't be deterred.
But reduced ammo/amounts of PWs? That would be the first step towards balancing the mode.
I still fail to see this logic, people always say that "no powerweapons no movement". Why would people not play like they do now but then without power weapons. It's not like that the player who gets the powerweapon goes running arround like crazy and the rest of players just hide. They play as well. I call BS.
I don't get it joe. I thought he meant that if someone has a PW they'd not camp and all that.
Yeah could be, but still let them camp then. Normal players will just run arround and fight untill the 15th kill drops. Good luck with that when you're camping you won't make 15 kills unless you move and go find people. I can't stand it that people just blindfire their way to victory with their sas or pistole or sawed off.
