Fleet Foot Is a Real Problem

[ Edited ]

Now bear with me here. I'll put it delicately because I know there are some veteran players out there who will have to have that booster pryed out of their cold dead hands. Fleet Foot has become at the least, too much of an advantage. Boosters are meant to be a tactiful advantage to a player, such as Explosive or Explosive Shell expert, which gives you little advantages to other players 

 

Now the problem is that more and more "Good" players are using this booster, to a point where it's becoming a disadvantage to players where it's not equipped. 

 

Now you might cleverly ask "Oh, great and mystical Cheerioah, isnt this the case with all boosters? That it gives a slight disadvantage to the players not using that booster?" Well, yes and at the same time no. That's because more and more people are using this booster which is the best booster in the game. How is it the best booster in the game? Well, unlike most of the other boosters, Fleet Foot is in effect in every firefight, and the level of movement and strafing is ridiculous, so that's everytime you go to shoot someone, you have the advantage, as opposed to other boosters, where you have the advantage less time per game. I'm not saying it's impossible to kill a Fleet Footer in a firefight, but I'm realizing it's becoming a big problem, and frankly, frustrating.

 

To me, it's only a matter of how long you can deny it or justify how this booster has not become a problem, even since Uncharted 2. I know Naughty Dog would never dream of "nerfing" of cutting the booster out of the game, but  If rid of Fleet Foot, I'm sure this game would become a more fun place for the Uncharted Community. You know my thoughts; Please, please let me know what you think.

No. It's on par with many other boosters and Cloaked is still better.

Ain't nothin' to it, gangsta rap made me do it.

There are better options anyway. Plus half the people I see using this booster either: 1. Don't Strafe at all 2. Strafe ineffectlively

I would sorta agree on this if I saw people actually take advantage of it. Most people I see with this booster do that little dance when strafing as in move left and right inch to inch which basically doesn't help at all and makes you look like an idiot. Other people I see kill me with this booster blindfire more than aim, which I don't really mind blindfiring, but if you are gonna do that then why even use the booster?

 

I've never used this booster other than to level it to gold, as it seems it doesn't give you that big of an advantage in my eyes. I would much prefer cloaked or weapon expert, and there are way better slot 1 boosters for plunder and team objective than fleet foot as well.

Oh, I'm just leaving. -Best Uncharted character ever

Fleetfoot was already nerfed, now all booster are on par with each other.If you are saying it is giving the other player an advantage, then what do you expect from a booster ?
