View Full Version : Slingshot is way too powerful

The slingshot is way too powerful. 8 shots, 2 hits people, very fast rate of fire (faster than the shotgun even) and the explosion radius is crazy. Shields are useless against it as all you need to do is aim behind the player and the extremely generous activation range will kill them. Thereís no counter play to the slingshot, and unlike the rocket launcher (which is a useless weapon by comparison) there are often multiple spawns for the slingshot in the maps.

Whoever controls the slingshot spawn controls the map. There is no doubt in my mind that the meta will be slingshot camping. Getting super armor in order to tank enough hits from the slingshot to get in close with a shotty is currently the only counterplay to the slingshot, and itís a super ****ty counterplay that wonít usually work.

Please make a pass on the weapon to take more skill to use. My strategy in this past VAL tournament was to camp the slingshot which allowed us to beat players who were aiming and working together better than us. It is incredibly overpowered.

Looks like this stuff isnt up to date with the current open beta. The slingshot now seems to go slower, do less damage, and the firerate is reduced. it feels way more balanced now.
