Re: Remove Power weapons FFA?

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.


Problem being that there is no middle of the map, as there are many spawns. Yes, they are generally based around the edges, but it still won't be balanced simply placing it in the middle.

Do you feel me?

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.

True, people tend to play FFA really aggressively. When I played FFA, I did it to get Chloe's M9 so I was all over the map for treasures' sake. But then again, why does balance really matter if people are just charging around having fun? In that case I'd say it's more fun to have power weapons everywhere like it is now.

Hmm, getting killed 3 times in a row by a power weapon due to bad spawns isn't really fun in my eyes. It's bad luck and doesn't happen every match I play but I still think no power weapons in this mode would do more good to this mode than bad. Especially because of the low kill limit.

BUMP seriously remove the piece of casual trash guns in this mode. There is no absolutely no point to implement power weapons in FFA in the first place!

Why are there power weapons in a mode requiring 15 kills only? I thought we were okay with the whole PW kickback, no need to put them there.

Indeed, I'm fine with the kickbacks but the spawning power weapons don't belong in this mode.

Imagine. Get the T-Bolt, 5 kills, spawn new T-Bolt, 5 kills. Great, just great.

Don't get me started on that. I get it, shotgun as a kickback, whatever, but as some weapon in the map? IN FFA? You serious? That's free kills to whoever gets it first! Free non-aimed kills, COME ON.

I can't camp unless I'm going try hard. I find it too boring and against my wild, reckless nature that allows me to run into the middle of battles but I do play tactical and flank a lot but camping is just not my style. The shotguns and pistoles are really annoying though I was one kill from a rampant I turned around a corner and BAM sas to the face. Then I had a moment of rage where I stopped playing drank some water then returned. -_-
