Reduce T-Bolt/SAS-12 Ammo

27 replies 473 views Edited May 18, 2013

I personally don't have much of a problem with Power weapons and if its open I'll grab it. However, the T-Bolt, and SAS offer way too many kills. The T-Bolt offers 5 1-hit kills from any range. There is at least one T-Bolt on every map and if you pick up the T-Bolt and get 3-4 kills guess what you can get another T-Bolt, you can play the entire match without having to use a normal gun. The weapon is too exploitable. ND should bump up the T-Bolt cost to 12 Medals and give 3 Shots as well as 3 shots when picking up the gun. 

 

The SAS offers 6 free kills if you can get in range which isn't too difficult. The only difference is the SAS isn't on every map and there isn't a SAS kickback. Still if you conserve your 6 shots over 3 minutes you can easily go the whole match without using a normal gun. The SAS also needs an ammo reduction to 3 shots.

I understand farzan's frustration with those weapons, but no, we can't have that. First, 5 and 6 bullets are not too many. Second, it's too late for such changes. 

 

Please do not bump this thread for post count.

well the pistole, mag, and sawn-off can get just as many kills as well. Imagine how many the pak can get in certain circumstances!

 

The hammer and rpg can take out the whole team once if given the current situation.

 

In other words...those arent the only 2 guns capable of 5ish kills.

I agree with far-zan. I'm tired of people getting ALL their kills with the T-Bolt or SAS.

yes reduce the ammo in those weapons its really annoying in elimination, i see players killing only with the SAS 12 the whole game when they are like really good players (5th legacy) and are against lower level players

That's not a matter of reducing ammo but removing power weapons from Elimination. Seriously who the **bleep** thought it was a good idea to place power weapons at a mode like Elimination?

Agreed. Power Weapons have no place in Elimination or Plunder/TO.

 

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
