Hard Core team EMP problems! Frustrating!

I am so tired of working my way up to a sentry gun only to have my team mates take it out after 3 seconds of it being up with an EMP grenade in hard core mode. It is getting to the point that I have stopped using sentry gun for a kill streak. Today I placed a guardian and a sentry gun up on the map drone down stairs. I take three steps away and get the message that they both have been destroyed. I go to theater mode to see how this could be and sure enough a team mate spamming EMP grenades upstairs took out both my guardian and sentry gun which where down stairs with one EMP. Please do something about the overpowered EMP it is ruining Hard Core mode please!

At least make killing team equipment the same as killing team mates so that there is a penalty and team mates will think before spamming grenades. As of now there is no penalty for destroying team equipment. Thank you.

on one hand, that's hardcore (closer to real-life). on the other, it suits trolls. if you start making it so team mates have no effect on your game, then it turns into core.

i would be okay with that, though, if it stopped the trolling.

how is the EMPgrenade overpowerd when its actaully the people using it doing the damage.

also this is why HC is called HC.

either you learn to deal with it, adjust the way you play, find some friends to play with or go back to core.

people need to stop asking for the game to adjust to them and instead try to adjust themselfs to the game.

People on this game are just retarded!!!! i get stunned and EMPed by team mates more often than enemies cos they dont know how to use them, instead just throw them anywhere they like not caring where it goes.

Oh for sure. The more randoms you play with, the more risk of having a genuine moron 'helping' you. I got TK'd off a streak yesterday when we had a VSAT up!! 0.0

I checked back in theatre to see if the randy was EMP'd, flashed or stunned, and no they weren't. How dumb do you have to be to get a TK when a VSAT is in the air, geez! *facepalm*

While that is very frustrating, it is part of the game if we're playing hardcore. The thing that makes me mad is when my teammates shoot/destroy my equipment. Nothing like planting a claymore and 4 seconds later hear that it's been destroyed, turn around and they is only teammates around you. I'd also like to finish the trophy system challenge but whenever I put one out, a teammate shoots it. Very very frustrating.

I think all of you have missed my point. There needs to be a penalty the same as killing team mates for killing team equipment. As of now there is no penalty for a team mate spamming the EMPs with scavenger perk all over the map with is not (closer to real life) sorry but the EMP is ridiculous. It is not the enemy I have problems with it is my team mates. EMPs have the largest blast radius taking out equipment from top and bottom floors with one go. Seriously the sentry gun now in Hard Core does not last more than 10 seconds before a friendly kills it with an EMP. It is still a game and will never be close to real life but at least balance out this game so those of us that only play hard core can enjoy it. Thank you.

or you can stop using the sentry and use something else.

a proper placed sentry gun will last longer even from friendly fire.

using it on small maps is asking for it to be destroyed.

no HC is fine the way it is.

its the people that try to play it who needs to either get smarter or give up.

i have no trouble racking up kills with a sentry.

then again i dont just put them anywhere.

You are probably finding that more core players are joining the HC gaming modes and haven't yet got out of the habit of throwing random explosives in the hope of that one random kill. I have to admit I have got a few random kills in core just by throwing random nades including EMP. Not a very good gaming etiquette to follow but sometimes you can't resist.

I decided once to go into core and just randomly Throw EMP nades and believe it or not it got me to finish top of the lobby. It was a complete WTF game for sure. I have played HC and I know the damage that can be done to team mates so I just don't spam nades or use crazy ass streaks like Lightening strike or Warthog they kill team mates all the time.
