no it is a "grenade" that does not explode but does a lot of damage when it physically hit someone, so unless someone includes gradients then no... a custom dot will not really help at all

My guess is this is a leet weapon. If you can see it coming, it's easy to avoid. Really easy. Campers. The unaware.. that's different. Plus it's easy to burn through them. Fun though.

Its the ultimate anti-kevlar nade. A slow moving target with extra health is like made for this. Sadly, kevlar has already enough draw backs and with the flak jacket moving in on its turf too, kevlar becomes even more of a niche mod.

They look more fun then me trying to levitate pencils off my desk... one day it will work.. one day.. or perhaps I'll break a blood vessel and maybe pass out. One of the two! Then it'll be a waiting contest to see how long it takes before someone notices my stupidity backfired once again.

My point is that the "grenades" look like a barrel of fun. Anyone know what a "barrel of fun" is? What would it consist of? I must search for one, but I must first know my enemy...

Looks like a normal barrel only it has sex in it.

I'd imagine the projectile speed for them would be slow enough to throw-off most aimbots, for now anyway.

Huh.. well then. That answers that, and leaves many more questions in its place. Moving on!

Check yo' damn messages Monte! Or don't. I really won't mind either way. For all you know I just wanted an excuse to post the dancing pink elephant. :elephantdance:

This. I guess, I'll finally drop kevlar...
Pretty much like hatchet in Gotham City Impostors. Despite the fact that GCI is much more balanced in this way. But well, these games are different.

Dont think that will work. Remember RP did say that it is high damage only if u hit somone with it at long range - meaning one shot at long range.

Most ladders r too short.

I tink it will be quite a hard equipment to use because it has a long travel time like grenade.

Also, i dont think it is possible to aimbot grenade even if the tech allows it, for the simple fact that grenades dont change directions in flight and they r slow, while smart players in apb almost never walk in straightlines

Can't wait to pop somebody in the head with an 8 ball. So far this is my favorite upcoming mod.

It looks like a lot of fun... but we'll see how practical it really is once it's released.

Also I was having the same concerns about aimbots... last thing we need is another one hit insta-kill weapon...

The problem with one shot kills is that it's incredibly hard to detect if the person is aimbotting or just good, because you only have one hit to go on.

Judging by the blog video, I'd assume the Half-Brick can one-shot around the 30m mark, and the 8ball probably around the 40m mark.

30-40m and its a one shot kill?
who in the hell calls 30-40m 'long range'.

Double that range for a onehit kill or at least out to 50m

I predict this is going to end badly....

And we've already seen the overlay crosshair people have their little tricks that 'dont help gameplay'... You know they'll be having rangefinders for the angle out in the first month.

8 Ball kills at 27m but flies farther and faster
Half-Brick kills at 19m

20m is pretty close. :unsure:

Make it so we can pick up our bricks again.

Also wait for the line "I just shat bricks on you" to be overly used when it comes out.

20m is basically Perc range. Don't need to lead much to hit at that range.

So hey, crims get oneshot percs! Woo!

Will this 8-ball/1/2 brick thing keep bouncing until it hits something or will it just bounce once and disintegrate?

It'd be cool to bank it off a building and drop down on someone if it took 6 or 7 bounces to get to them...
