  1. I don't so much think of it as a nerf as a re-shuffle of stats that will reward veteran players with larger raw damage output and teach new players to hone their skills. It'll take some measure of effort to do well and feel rewarding when those well placed shots hit home, I'm looking forward to it!

    I hope the bolter-change leads to different bolter-patterns that function differently, so you can tailor your loadout to your playstyle even further by picking a pattern that more fits your style.. or a look you prefer

    Armour should function like that also.

    Seeing as they decided to do it as cosmetics you have to buy... that'll never happen

    I’ve never seen the word Bolter used as much as I’ve seen it in this thread so far, and it’s only two pages.

    That being said, I am agreeing with @ProteusVM on this one. There’s literally no reason to take other weapons due to lack of tactical flexibility in this game. Period. Long range is a joke, as LSM rule the roost with stalker bolters almost exclusively. But they have limited uses as 75 percent of the game is running rhino crammed with 10 Guys to 1 point, and all fights Happening at close/medium range.

    This makes heavy support classes limited in use except fortress and ticket maps, and Melee limited In use due to too many exploit abusers, and the fact that ranged typically comes out on top of Melee in most
    Cases. JPA classes have zero staying power, and die in way too quickly to be impactful in anyway,
    Unless of course on ticket/fortress maps where you can use them to get into the point through windows etc. Only to face 25 ranged players who all gun them down in .5 seconds of arriving.

    The amusing thing is that in table top, there’s actually a point to taking other weapons as they all provide bonuses. But pretty much all ranged weapons In this game are only good at one thing and suck at everything else, leaving muh Bolter the only viable build. Just watch a Leroy video...nuff said. I’m not even a good player and I can still pull off 20 plus kills if I go exclusively Bolter all match. Compare to Melee or heavies who only get kills in highly situational circumstances.

  7. I regularly hit 25 kills with my melee loadouts...

    Sometimes I can as wel, but Melee is annoying. I spend more time hiding behind walls and corners cause I know I can’t go toe to toe with even a tactical who knows what they are doing and see me coming.

    Unless it’s scorp. I’ll play scorp till the cows come home.

    I wanna be able to go 30-0 with the Grav Pistol.

    Don’t be so realistic deathwish. We wouldn’t want to drive away tactical since they make up 90 percent of the teams as it stands! If we drive them off then the game will lose more pop.
