Fix Smoke Bomb!

[ Edited ]
72 replies 569 views Edited Feb 15, 2013

I'm aware that many threads concerning this subject have been made in the past, but I think this is one of the most alarming technical issues in the game right now.
  I'm an avid Smoke Bomb user and, while this Kickback has always had its problems (especially with lag), I've been experiencing Smoke Bomb deaths a lot more often, lately. What puzzles me, though, is that this problem has been around since the Summer Beta and, one year after the game's release, ND hasn't done one single solitary thing about it. Smoke Bomb isn't even an offensive kickback! It doesn't give you free kills like some others... *cough* Quick Boom *cough* Smiley Tongue . In my opinion, it should work at least 80% of the time (100% is a just a utopia). Who's with me? Smiley Very Happy

Agreed, all they need to do is make it like Creepy Crawler and let you respawn with full health, then it will avoid all lag.

Great idea! I had never thought of that, but it could really fix this exasperating issue.

Would be the best fix for it, Lets bump this thread until ND looks at it

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

Yep I agree. It also needs to teleport you as away from danger as possible. People have said that it teleports you to where you last respawned at, but I have tested it many times and that isn't true, at least not when I use it. And while your at it, fix the Regeneration booster glitch too, very annoying.

That happens when you buddy spawn.  If your last spawn was normal, then Smoke Bomb will use the normal spawn system to select a new destination.

With you 100% of the way here buddy! It's my favourite kickback and sometimes I do rage when I smoke bomb, run a pace or two, then die anyway!
