Is the best lab so far.

 

Health feels like somewhat of an improvement, still could do with a little less, but it's fun regardless. The best part was when I saw someone freeze framing, he actually died!!! I let out a cheer, finally laggers get punished in this lab due to somewhat lower health not giving them such an astronomical advantage.

 

Treasure drops.. About time... I'm skeptical though.. ND have taken this long so will it even work? If I don't have a complete treasure set and my trophies after this weekend clearly ND didn't do enough with the rare treasure drops and I'll continue raging at them.

 

Double XP.. Isn't everyone already level 75? except me. I could do with Quadruple XP to help me over the line. Once again I'm feeling this isn't enough from my perspective.


I wouldn't say it punishers laggers at all. Because it takes less to kill, but they still have the same delay on their death it's even more likely that no matter how fast I kill them they'll still kill me with their couple after death shots. Also I played against someone earlier who was extremely hard to hit because of their lag making them skate around, but he could kill us fairly quickly.


I often don't get the kill on a lagger. They get away free of charge usually.

 

Same case with Uncharted 2 for me, if someone was lagging we were usually both going down, as opposed to U3 with it's vast amounts of health where the lagger always skips away from me Smiley Sad

Well for me it seems to let them get away more because if they have the form of lag that makes them skate and be harder to hit, then I'm pretty much guaranteed to die because of lower health and their more likely to get away.

 

Although the last match I played it was just unavoidable lag deaths where 5 seconds after I killed this guy he'd suddenly kill me with a melee.

It can kinda work both ways I guess, depending on where you are located and the lag you are faced with. I have seen people who are frozen but not really in that position, they are completely invincible usually.

 

I happen to see the old shotgun weapon lag a lot more than anything else, so the lower health means I can down them before the burst usually smacks me in the face. That is what I saw a lot on Uncharted 2 also, but U3 also has the players skipping frames which I have to say I very rarely saw on Uncharted 2.

M9 could still be considered the best gun due to its blindifire being so good.

I can confirm that the G-MAL is a 5 shot kill and the FAL is back to a 4.

I would say the GMAL is really the best. It may not have the blindfire but a 5 shot kill means not even two full bursts. The matches I played with you seemed to be mostly 2 burst kills for anyone with a GMAL.

 

Did you try the AK at all?


As long as you don't get caught at close range with a G-MAL, yeah you'll probably be fine. I think an all headshot burst is an instant kill too. If you can consistently hit with the FAL, that's a great weapon as well, especially if you can land a headshot. From what someone else said, 2 body shots and one headshot is a kill.

 

As for the AK, not yet. I'm probably going to try it tomorrow and use Eddy's AK or one with Accuracy.

I'm using the jade AK (only 1 i got Smiley Sad ) and it is working well for me, decent stopping power, good accuracy, and can blindfire when in a pinch. Didn't test how well it kills but in the 3 matches I played I went 24-10, 18-12, and 17-3 in.
