Why was the whistle removed from the Airstrip bomber?

7 replies 424 views Edited Aug 25, 2012

In the beta, there was a whistle as the bomb began to drop on the wooden building, giving you a fair warning to get out and away.

 

Now it just blows up at random, and it's really annoying. The whistle sounded cool AND served a purpose. 

 

So why on earth would you removed it, ND? Can you please patch it back in?

I know, it's annoying to be in the middle of a gunfight, only to lose due to the shack blowing up behind you. I think the LU train cold use a bit more of a warning too. The horn doesn't do you any good if you're taking cover in the tracks.

Real question is: why were the best parts of the beta removed and replaced with the crap parts

Because they didn't fit in the multiplayer.

It makes the bomb drop more unpredictable. which causes players to be less inclined to use that position.

That's just a typical idiotic type of thing Naughty dog would do. The beta was x4 better than multiplayer now. I couldn't stop playing it.

My PS3 has YLOD -_-

Is it truly random? Or is ar a set time kinda like power weapons?

I usually don't go in there much before it explodes or the other side changes.
