Re: Once for all: Are weapons finally balanced?

Sep 4, 2012

Compared to when the game released? The weapons are supremely balanced.

That said, is there still room to improve? Absolutely:

 

 

M9: ROF needs more recoil and overall blindfire accuracy needs an additional 10% nerf.

 

AK: Could use an accuracy increase.

 

Tau "Sniper": Needs serious fixes to its horrible aiming.

 

Raffica: Needs more damage and/or more accuracy.

 

Snipers: Needs serious tweaks to their terrible aim assist.

Pretty much this.

The weapons are fine now. Even M9 RoF isn't really as huge as it was before. I wouldn't be upset if they removed it, but if not i don't care either way. If they could tweak something, I think they should eliminate Blindfire stopping power. EDIT: btw, if anyone is wondering, I'm an AK user. I use the E3 and Pirate AKs. I have no problem beating down the enemy M9s. I always run double negs too.

I think for the most part weapons are pretty balanced now.  I know one thing for sure, I'm enjoying the game a hell of a lot more now.

 

The M9 is being overused at the moment (vanilla M9 and RoF), and that can be annoying, but I'm not having too much of a problem taking them out with my AK. It's usually the blindfiring that can get me frustrated, it's just obnoxious that people would rather do that then aim their gun. 

 

That being said, the game is a lot better than was a couple months ago, I see a lot more variety and a lot less camping now.

I don't mind the M9 ROF but if it is removed then it should at least be replaced with an Accuracy mod.


That would make the M9 way too easy to handle (it already is). The recoil is easily controllable as it is but w/ accuracy mod it will have almost NO recoil if any.

In order for the weapons to be balanced (for me) I think that

 

1. M9 RoF removed, but its not really a huge issue.

2. AK accuracy increase. Something little, like, 5-10%

3. Some people mentioned the stopping power when blindfiring, and I agree that it shouldn't be as is. I don't want it gone, but definately a big nerf on it. Decrease it by 25-30%

4. M9 accuracy decrease, 5-10%

 

IMO this would be perfectly balanced, or very close to it.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Balanced? Nope!

M9 RoF is king. M9 in general is the best overall gun in all but long range situations. I use the "nerfed" RoF in distance situations all the time now. It's pretty effective.

AK is only decent.
Gmal is only decent in pretty limited situations.
Fal is great in one situation.
Dragon is great in one situation and sub-par in all others.
Screw the Kal.

Let me make another point. When the G-mal was the best overall gun I still saw more variety in weapons than I do now. That because some people couldn't use it (read: aim). There were tons of M9 users (in particular, the RoF).

The only gun I see now is the M9. Other guns are used very rarely in comparison. And really, why would they use anything else? For kicks? Boredom?

Honestly, I see more people using Flynn's and Chole's M9 that people using the RoF mod now. Also see plenty of AK people and a few FAL users every now and then.

I think the game has never been so unbalanced what it is now.
Every gun should have it's own strengths,

• Kal-7 close range
• Dragon sniper long range
• G-Mal long range...

Now M9 is the most used weapon, and I think it's the most overpowered weapon at the moment.
M9 is dominating the game.

M9 fits in every situation perfectly,
from fist to fist combat to, longer ranges..
And the fact how fast it can kill..

In my opinion,
I would rather keep G-Mal or FAL-SS the "overpower" weapon in UC3,
because those guns fits best to longer ranges and you really have to switch to pistol if you need blindfire...
