Believe it or not. It wasn't OP.

 

It was equal to giving an advantage like Fleet Foot and Down the Irons were.

 

Only difference was you could counter SA with Evasion. Fleet Foot and Down the Irons were in line and balanced with each other too.

 

So SA was like a casino. You take your chances that no one is using Evasion, Either way someone wastes a booster slot if they don't use FF or DTI, equally though if they didn't select Evasion the SA user could combat their strengths and unfair advantages by having an unfair advantage of their own.

 

Uncharted 2's booster balance was brilliant, needed some work on the other boosters though. Those 3 created variety though there as they somewhat cancelled out each other.


Down The Irons shouldn't of even been a booster. Same with Sure Shot.

I kept getting shot through walls and cover. Thank god they removed them in UC3.


I think they needed DTI in Uncharted 3 to compete with other boosters.

 

I think this weeks challenge should be get a rampant without dying without Fleet Foot or Speedy G, also using the AK 47.

You're right, besides Cloaked, it would've been one of the only boosters that would match up to FF's level. I still prefer not getting shot though walls a lot.

I've gotten Rampants using Team Safe, but no AK-47. Will try later tonight. To make it challenging, I'll use No PW's except the T-Bolt.

A very toned down version of it. I mean, how often do you see it on a gun? You might occasionally see it on an M9 but besides that...

Also, you can't aim at people through walls and it only lasts a couple of seconds whereas with SA, you could use it all the time (I assume).

Call Out is actually worse than SA (imo). 

With Callout, You can let EVERYONE know where someone is by aiming your weapon, not just yourself. Also it can be done from across the map, unlike SA which is just through a wall. 


Yet people are saying that SA is OP and Call out isn't which I don't understand at all.


Exactly lol, Call Out lets your entire team see the opponent(s) as long as they don't have Cloaked on. Worst part is, all you have to do is aim at the player and it will put a tag/marker on where the player is while he himself has no idea that he is shown across the map by the other players.

Does anyone really use Call Out? These days?

Plus almost everyone uses a cloaked hat these days.

True about this, SA was counterable by using Evasion and if one team were to use SA and the other Evasion, the team with the so called "Over-powered" booster would be at a huge disadvantage because not only would SA not work, but the Slot 1 Booster (more important slot) would be as if they had no Slot 1 booster at all.

As far as Uncharted 3 goes.. I admit.. over many months I played very dirty.

 

My Loadout used to be something like..

 

Cloaked / Kickback Endurance - Kickback: Gotcha

 

So you have free reign over all enemies who can't see you through call out or other SA stuff, yet you have extended SA time when you get your kickback, you can go on a rampage and almost refill the booster, sometimes you do refill it and start again!....

 

Yep.. That really happened.

 

Since 1.18 though I changed all that. I'm now a Fleet Foot / Power Hunter - Smoke Bomb person.

 

Something isn't quite right when I suddenly went from offensive strategy to total defensive. The changes may have been positive but clearly they are making me play negatively.

I use it on Elimination matches. Just in case I die, at least I'll leave my killer exposed.

I thought Call Out was bad since, to paraphrase people from 2011-2012, it gets kills stolen, and therefore not helpful to myself. It's helpful to the team, though. Just not you.

 

Anyway, the only way people even use that is character weapons.

Ugh, don't even get me started on Cloaked Stat Hats. In fact, don't even get me started on stat hats in general. You have 2 Boosters and lots of mods on your guns, use those - not some hat that gives you a cheap advantage.
Bang Bang!
