weapon balancing should be your top priority

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello,

 

Whoever decided it was a good idea to allow Improved Rifling on shotguns should get dropped from the company. The NFAS is so incredibly broken right now that missions where an opponent has one are almost unplayable. And that's not even mentioning the RFP, Low Yields or the Spotter modification. These are all busted as fuck and something needs to happen as soon as possible. You should be focusing on balancing the weapons/modifications rather than spending time making dogshit events that people play for 2 days before going back to doing regular missions. Please do something.

 

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure most of the time has been spent working on the unreal engine port, silvers. As for the NFAS players, try learning from them, because there's definitely something you're doing wrong if you always fall for the same tricks.

I am so tired of people telling "X should be top priority" because they're having a few bad games... There is more to APB than such minor details.

have you tried using the ‘S’ key when engaging an nfas? works wonders

 

the spread is so wide that ir3 doesn’t really help the nfas anyway

You know they nerfed the range on the NFAS by 50% right?

And that IR has always been allowed on shotguns?

IR has always been allowed on shotguns but it has never affected them as much as it is right now. The NFAS is busted and anyone who denies it is nothing more than someone from the bronze district or a gold plated, delusional silver.

Sounds like you got thrashed by a silver with an nfas and now you're letting your salt flow on the forum. Nfas is perfectly fine. IR3 on shotguns is standard but it's not overpowered. Spotter could have a slight cooldown nerf.

But the NFAS has 10m less range than it did before, and nothing at all has changed with IR.

What are you even talking about?

Yeah just don't hug a shotgun opponents. The NFAS is terrible at any bit of range, IR or not.

 

Also in actual game play other CQC weapons outgun the NFAS because of its spread, it's not like that on paper but who cares,,,, well, maybe, unless you afk on the spot.

 

If you want to complain about weapons look at the current meta.... ancient meta? Whatever.

nfas has always been a crazy ultra cqc gun, it dominates under 10m due to ease of use and raw ttk but it’s such a small niche it’s not really worth using

 

if youre honestly having trouble with an nfas at 20m i think you’re the silver here lmao, even with ir3 that’s past drop off range

Little Orbit had just made an attempt at weapon balancing and more experience by them is needed.

also to do better improvements for APB patootie a whole , the engine upgrade has to be top priority for PC so that the consoles can be properly fixed.

After that all updates for APB can be given to all platforms easier as well.

 

So to sum this up your thread title of "weapon balancing should be your top priority" is actually not a good idea because it caters to you rather than the  APB community well being as a whole.

by the way are we talking of the nfas ogre or the regular nfas or what?

ogre has that wind up and anyone not blasting music or other noise can hear it and know to shoot fast to kill them.

if its the normal nfas.... um howd you lose to that then? It can be gunned down with a star fairly decently ( with a reg nfas shotgun , star 556's can be brutal to it in the right hands)

The whole point of my title was to make fun of the fact that they have been focusing on making events that somehow manage to break some of the core gameplay mechanics of the game rather than focusing on trying to fix the game. Two examples of the game breaking due to these event updates are;

 

1. The "Destroy" objective on shopfronts in certain missions now require you to ram them with a car, or else the mission won't progress.

2. The HUD markers (teammates, spotter, enemy makers in DM) disappear randomly for certain people, and a restart of the game is required to fix it.

Really old and kind of corny advice is; when in doubt buy the same gun and find out what is strong and weak about it.

 

It's true though. And kinda on-topic, someone recently did ask me "why isn't there a contact- or even Armas- version of something like the Joker FW launcher?" Got me there... it's pretty cheap to trade / buy one from someone though.

No, they focus on Engine Upgrade.

 

Roadmap:

Engine Upgrade > optimise servers > other useless shit like threat and missions > weapon balance

Oh no. Shotguns can kill me at their effective distance!

Better hate on IR cause it expand distance by like... 5 meters!

 

Oh btw. push them at distance then?

Just remove all weapons except ntec.

 

Who needs any viable counter-tactics in a game anyway? Nobody that's who. And hey if we could get aim-assist on that ntec the whole game will be balanced.

4-6 shots around 20m? Most good players can out ttk this with an oca/pmg. Have you tried not pushing corners without baiting first because if you don't and they're behind that corner, ur swiss cheese.
