I've used the Ballistic Vests for awhile now and I'm convinced they offer no protection. I personally think they need to up the damage a ballistic vest takes because right now these things are useless.
lol i feel the same way when i use them it doesnt make a difference but when the enemy uses it i have to shoot more bullets it doesnt make sense, i think the balistic vests i get are second hand?
spot on they do nothing just a waste of a streak..what works better is hiding behind objects lol
They are a placebo. They give you a false sense of well being You have more chance of dying before you get the damn thing on Maybe they forgot to add in the code for them actually protecting you.
If you play HC you will notice a difference. I'm annoyed that they are even an option in HC mode to be honest with you.
The first two days I used them it was like a having an overshield in Halo, yesterday when I wore them I started questioning whether I had held square down long enough. I didn't notice a difference at all.
They do offer protection, I shot a guy and the small icon indicating he was wearing it saved him! I ran out of bullets and he got me, they work.
