you move slow you get killed by the enemy you move fast you get killed by an ied and im talking about this from a pure hardcore standpoint and in that stand point the IED's range is ridiculous and is not useless when i use one i get the majority of my kills from it just tossing them randomly throughout a map they arnt over powered but like i said their range needs to be brought in a bit
That's simply untrue I have many times entered a room to hear the beep I back out and press against the wall clearly within blast radius still and I survive. i tend to throw them on ceilings or walls with power boxes so they blend in I think your not seeing were the IED is located if your killed through walls because thats a blantant lie. I can often back away after hearing the beep start and survive in both core and hardcore. IED's kill as they are intended to and mecause a lot of players are run and gun types like most of COD games were developed for they have a hard time with them. simply slow down and you'll almost never get killed by and IED. sit-rep is one the best perks in game it shows where enemies are or where they were a few seconds ago. I can't count how many times I've seen an IED, Satcom, or Motion sensor appear a little ways and I move to that position to get multiple kills. good luck and I'll be feeding you IED's all day!
I don't think the IEDs are overpowered.
They can be seen with SITREP.
They can be deflected with Blast Shield.
They can be run past with Agility.
They can be jumped over with timing.
How much more help do you guys need?
Now you HC guys I can understand...
But I think really they should only increase the beeping distance to give you a chance to avoid the blast radius to offset your lower health in HC.
Other than that, it's an IED and is still going to do it's job.
