I don't like it that much. I would have liked sas and pistole a lot more. Now you almost get instantly killed at any range. The power plays are annoying. Since boosters are out Cloacked doesn't protect me from exposed and enemies always come shotgunning around the corner or take you out from a big distance while they would never have spotted you otherwise. The double damage is even worse. Mag kills in 1 leg/body shot and the sas kills you from a ridiculous distance. What I also don't like is that a mode that depends a lot on luck and should be for fun only but counts for your kill/death stats.
awful lab, feels skills don't count, just get in close push R1 and u get a kill, i was in cover and blindfired my shottie from very close range and he survived the shot and from same distance killed me through a wall
What are your thoughts on it. For me, its random. One match i went 5-12 and one time i went 27-9.
I had the same kind of results until I realized that this is a MAG-5 ONLY match, not Shotguns/Mag-5.
All the noobs are running across the map towards you with the shotgun and I just stand back and pop their head off! And the Mag has ridiculously good blindfire so it excells there as well.
I've actually seen people using both the SAS and Mag, they are used as expected in my eyes, the SAS up close and the Mag from afar. I have seen the random person running around blindfiring the Mag and although it is effective, it is still beaten out by the SAS.
It is hardly as much of a blindfire fest as shield + Micro was. If it weren't for power plays ruining it, I would call this my #1 lab.
I was playing the other day, and noticed that on Chateau, the turrets are gone. On Airstrip, they're still there.
Anyway, I spent a few seconds behind the turret on airstrip, only to be shot by an RPG.
I thought to myself, "Where on Earth did he get that?"
Then last night, having a quick game, and for some reason the menu offered me Paid Boosters. And when I got in the match, my negative boosters were active (Nice for the money!) and my kickback was active... I managed to procure a T-Bolt from it for 5 easy long-distance kills.
Next match, back to normal, no boosters or kickbacks, no paid boosters offered.
There's a bug in there somewhere. Don't ask me how it's done.
