It would not make any sense to do the test with bad players ...
Testing with lagers doesn't make any sense neither and there's no ping limit to join the test district

Suggestion : disable missions(players cant press K)because this missions makes no sense even have downside - max rank players which not lvl up anymore play on prototypes and districts with matchmaking on get even more empty.So no missions and u get money for every kill like in normal mission.Dat can be good

isnt enough Obeya CR762 have low recoil, you want to make it the 'new sniper'

ps: about the recoil, should be interesting know if the broken recoil added into the weapons in 2015 patch make the TTK of the weapons of the same class equal or not

obeya has always been pretty strong, realistically the extra 5m isnโ€™t going to affect it that muchย

I still don't understand why after implementing the Improved Rifling changes we're now seeing a range nerf to assault rifles? They're supposed to be mid-range weapons and yet we're taking their drop off range down from 50m, the exact mid-point in APB? At the same time as also buffing rifle range, it just seems so unnecessary.

Assault Rifles in general have slightly lower range (apart from the Misery, ISSR, NTEC7, NTEC5-Scope and the LCR)

I am slightly worried about the Atac now. But I don't have any room on my SSD to check it outย ๐Ÿ˜…

You can test these weapon changes on the Live servers, you don't need OTW anymore. Just join a weapon prototype district

Oh, I uninstalled APB to make room for Sea of Thieves, and AC: Origins. Time to get another SSD I guessย ๐Ÿ˜„

A few notes from my recent round of testing (nothing to do with weapon balance Sorry it just doesn't interest me )

1. You can level up weapon roles outside of missions in these "weapon prototype Districts" That includes daily missions "get 5 kills" etc.
(also awards money for kills/arrests even assists)

2. You can still kill your own faction however these do NOTย progress weapon roles/daily missions but will still give the "5 teamkills in under 5 mins and you get kicked" warning
(and it works i tested it)

3. Zero Spawn protection You can spam a stun launcher at the criminal spawn and arrest the second they spawn into the game (grenade's fuse timer is short) Which of course goes the same for getting kills
(yes i tested it too not proud of that)ย 

4. This district uses "Open Conflicts" matchmaking (as no 0 matchmaking) which also means Just Like Open Conflict Threat level is hidden and.ย Rating Level is hiddenย 
(good time to dress up in starter clothing)

Final Thoughts I like this district No need to lose cause their objective is "Run with a security truck" Now i just die over and over and over and sometimes get 1 kill then die over and over again.

Question: Is this Legal? Can you farm kills Ahem "Test" your weapons while progressing roles Or is this "Farming/Exploiting" ?

Response from staff would be nice.

ย We are going to do a similar โ€˜Play with the Devsโ€™ event on Jericho too.
MattScottย  specify a specific date and time !
the test was conducted only on the server OWT . weapon balancing patches weren't in the official launcher . what prevents you to test weapons with a larger number of players on all servers ? Edited by Yood

The weapons can be tested on the live servers in the Prototype Weapon districts, so they are in the official launcher, just not everywhere yet.

There's a few enforcers and criminals partnering up on the prototype districts to get arrests and team killing anyone else there who is legitimately trying to test weapons in the prototype districts.
If it's true that you can level up gun roles then they are exploiting the game.

I think the extra 5M helps put it in it's proper place above ARs and carbines.

its always had a place imo

the gun is effective at almost every range with its high accuracy, relatively low ttk, and really forgiving dropoff - i really hesitate to say any kind of buff is a good idea

It's a bit OP, but I feel like they should balance the other weapons around the CR762 instead of the N-TEC.
