wait it doesn't effect smoke bombs?

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

I can't comment on that as no one uses smoke bombs but me apparently lol

 

Id imagine it does as you have to use explosives to make it

This perk is like, the Anti-Lag skill. The blast radius is so huge that enemies won't mysteriously run out of the blast radius.

I was really surprised to hear a 50% buff, but didn't want to complain right away.

I feel it should have been a third tier booster at 5 loadout points.

I do wish to counter it, we had some booster (maybe a part of strategist?) to delay the explosion by 2 or so seconds.

I use grenade traps a lot, at the expense of upgraded melee weapons, so maybe that's a fair tradeoff.

I figured this would be effective for smoke bombs, easy mass shiv kills and all.

If I could get enough Molotov parts often enough, I might consider it OP. Getting 1-2 moltovs on average per match is not OP.

I do use them !

 

Had a fun time today with it, me and my friend saw two guys happily trying to shoot us down, we both threw a smoke bomb at the same time, both rushed, and we both took down 1 guy with the shive, was bloody awesome.

 

Right after it i kinda wished there was a high five option. Smiley Very Happy
