blast shield? hahaha

Useless perk since the nades in this game cant really kill you i see no less damage from explosive being done? So useless perk as for the pro version its nothing like tactical mask pro which would had made this perk useful.

    Blast Shield nerfs explosive damage to 55% as opposed to Black Ops Flak Jacket that nerfs explosive damage to 35% and also puts a cap on the maximum amount of damage a single explosive can deal to you.

     

    However, Flak Jacket pro was hard to get and completely useless as no one really used frags/flamethrowers.  Blast Shield Pro doubles as Tactical Mask as it reduces the effect of all flashes and stuns to 50%.

     

    I'd say it's a pretty good perk (especially in Drop Zone, try playing that game mode without BS and watch as you get cross-the-map tubed).

      Too bad grenades are uber strong and stuns/flashes are not held back by BS Pro.

       

      You are only protected by one grenade MAX with Blast Shield on. Someone can fully stun you with two Stuns.

       

      It is only good when grenades are not spammed. Too bad most game modes are like that.

    The only reason I ever get it is for when I go specialist. The pro variant gives that extra little edge of invincibility..

     

    But true statement I died by explosives a lot more than I thought I should.

    I wish they had made the blast shield more like the flak jacket. In hardcore there is nothing to counter any explosions. ( yes you can use the trophy system, but do you really want to carry that around with you all the time???) Blast shield doesn't work. Atleast with the Flak Jacket in hardcore for BLOPS you were able to survive one explosion. Since there isn't any counters to explosions in Hardcore, you get those players who are toob happy and that's all they use. making the game unenjoyable. It just ruins the game for me.
