multiplayer gripes

10 replies 510 views Edited Jun 16, 2013

I've noticed that whenever there is a blinking grenade nearby and a gun, more often than not, i prioritize picking up the gun and not tossing the grenade back. can this be fixed? also, why is blindfire so accurate? this happens to me about 60% or more of the time where a person just runs straight at me blindfiring while i'm aiming at his chest/head and he kills me first. is aiming the least bit useful? or are those just cheaters?

I have no clue why anyone would pick a gun up over throwing a grenade back. But it happens to everyone.

Different guns have different BF accuracy. So it depends. A Kal-7 with the BF accuracy mod ends up having 100% BF accuracy. Plus that gun has a crazy high rate of fire. It's also difficult to aim well while close up. Especially when someone is running at you all crazy and blind firing. I would suggest trying BF yourself when up that close to ppl.

Last thing to keep in consideration, is that a lot of people lag really bad, which actually benefits them. So basically, they can kills you much faster and easier than you can kill them.

This is an issue in co-op as well. Unfortunately there is no fix. If a team member is down next to a weapon, an enemy throws a grenade and lands next to him, if you try to revive your buddy at the same time... consider yourselfs dead.

the issue that i am finding more often is that i feel i am so nerfed. the worst example was the guy was about 30 meters away, i started shooting at his chest first and all he did was run straight at me blindfiring. he wasn't even zig-zagging or anything just ran straight and he killed me. he was using a handgun btw. i put an entire clip into him and i had to run to reload, but he still killed me. now, i consider myself a pretty good aim and pretty good overall, i even have a few rampants. but that is just ridiculous.

I don't know how to put this...

This game, for some reason, would favor blindfirers over aimers. I don't know how, or why, but it definitely has felt like that for a long time.

This is without a doubt the number one thing that annoys me in this game. I am an AK user, which "supposedly" has the highest stopping power in the game, yet my bullets don't stop these blindfire rushers in time. In fact, I hardly notice them slowing down at ALL. It's so dumb that either: 1) I die to a blindfire user when I'm AIMING at them or 2) we both die at the same time because he'll blindfire and punch me to death. That's why I detest playing try hard parties because they will Para 9 blindfire you for the whole match. The worst part? It's EFFECTIVE and works to their favor. Smiley Indifferent

I know how you feel. I'm an avid AK user who doesn't blindfire with good aim and yet someone rushes me with a para and we both die.
