That's obviously a nerf, and from what I understand in certain game modes the shield can be destroyed. Once they are destroyed it doesn't even appear that you can pick them back up.
Campers have a place in the game whether anyone believes it or not and we need a LOT LESS intervention from people trying to force others to play with their playstyle.
I get so tired of people saying to take out sniper rifles, random OP weapon, and etc. so that everyone plays the same way as me.
There is a way to counter majority playstyles and assault shield is the least of my worries.
As a shield user, I don't feel like this change is needed. I understand that it can be used as a portable head-glitch, but that's about the only thing it has going for it. I've been head-glitched by a shield on a handful of occasions, and I've never felt like it was OP. It's not like they are able to shoot through a hole in the shield.
Yea the headglitch thing can be annoying, but usually what I'll do is just aim at the top of the shield and wait for them to pop, almost always a guaranteed headshot. Yes, this is usually after I already died to them, but whatever. So few people do it on a regular basis and once it happens once you're aware of it and can usually counter it, so I don't really mind too much.
if anything the riot shield is underpowered but i agree that 3arc was on some serious drugs when they created it so you can set it on the floor.
the portable headglitch has ended my streaks way to many times.
and camping isnt a style that should exist.
its like hey why show skill in a gunfight when i can just sit in a corner waiting and being completely useless to the entire team:D
demolition i see people running to an random corner and camp there while i get out there getting the bombs planted(same for domination and CTF)
camping has to go but i dont see a problem in defensive play.
set yourself up so you can cover the objective and hold down high trafic area.
