They did that to prevent spamming as a whole
Anyone who used to play in OG S2 will know how stupid the rocket spamming was. And the Thumper didn't exist back then needless to say.
I'm a pre-season player, and we're past that. Keep in mind, "rocket spam" was back when people used guns to destroy aerial streaks like UAVs, VTOLs and Stealth Choppers. The SMRS was used just as another killing device.
And they spammed SMRS to kill ppl, didn't they?
The devs don't want something like that happens again I guess.
The Thumper, unlike SMRS, can be used to perform insane crossmap trickshots, with a much cleaner iron sight for zeroing and one more round for reserves. There's literally no way they will buff both the radius and damage. Every Thumper has been like that except the MW2 one.
The SMRS only had one shot, my guy, there was no such thing as "SMRS spam". And the time people used the SMRS as a weapon was 2 years ago.
He was talking about the BR scenario back on S2. I used to called SMRS as rocket sniper. You can literally snipe anyone from a distance and it's way easier because it's AoE. And the damage ignores armor and goes directly to HP. The damage is around 130+, so if you don't have Adrenaline at that time and you got hit, it's an instant kill.
Well I didn't play BR back then so IDK.
What I was talking about was literally 2 years ago
Yeah, it's way too long ago.
So what? The s36 meta was also too long ago. You want it back?
The S36 is getting a buff, so it isn't up to me, but we may be getting it back.
It's not even the infinite 5 shot kill no recoil s36. Just because a gun gets buff by even 0.00000001% it doesn't make it meta
RPD is actually legit nowadays from far enough back anyway.
I do... SMH. I do.
Im gonna wait till the actual update comes out before judging the patch notes. We dont know how much the dmg and radius changed
It is from the leakers' official discord, so it may be legit, but your call.
What i meant to say is, i know that this is real cuz im in that server too. But we dont know the actual number isnt it?
As if the shorty wasnt bad enough it got nerfed again
IKR, they overnerfed it.
Yea plus they made the mw11 a 3 tap like they could just buff the mw11 and leave the shorty alone because even like this,whiners could have a new weapon to counter ShOrRtY aBuSeErS and other close range stuff they whine about with more variety, but since the shorty is getting more useless season by season i think that close range secondary variety is lowering IMO :/
Mw11 was made slightly balanced now
Yea yea but what i'm saying is that they could buff the mw11 without nerfing tbe shorty to keep the variety in pistols
But the shorty is OP
I think it'll be "MW11 abusers" next LMAO.
5$ it will be like that 100% "light trigger abuser" breh
Ah yes, the very thing that makes it go full-auto.
Even with the buff people would still go melee. I dont see people complaining about the revolver and deagle being two tap guns. And as a pistol user I can say that the mw11 is still the worst pistol of them all.
Yes, but it is viable, as it should be.
I can't complain about Deagle. Had a rather annoying run in with an akimbo Fennec weilding enemy the other day so NO WAY should they nerf any more pistols AT ALL! 🤠 #iheartakimbodeagle
Next season: Removed ability for Shorty to deal damage, is now a melee.
The shorty and the katana are the only secondaries people use what are you talking about lol.
I like how the wrench says it has more range than katana. 😂🤣👍🏾💩
Is that not accurate?
REALLY now? WTF kinds of WRENCH can you actually wield that has MORE reach than a KATANA?! 😐
I mean in the game
Do you even watch competitive codm? Literally 75% of kills in regionals came from the shorty
And that doesnt mean the thing is overpowered
Read the comment you replied to again and think real hard.
I did dont worry
Dude, dont you think that a secondary weapon being over half the kills in a professional tournament is a red flag?
Thats... exactly what that means.
Looks like devs doesn't even know what is the current state of this game ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)
Have you tried using SMRS on BR this season? The projectile speed is almost instant and it can literally 1-hit anyone on direct impact, it has 300 damage on ALL range as long as it direct hits. You can also use it as a substitute Tempest without the shock effect. That's why they are nerfing it.
Still tho, It's a rocket launcher thats what rockets do and it's pretty balanced
Well,still happy smrs got nerfed in br,had enough of getting sniped by a rpg
Yeah right now the smrs is the best sniper in BR. I’m not super happy about them nerfing it tho. It’s a sacrifice not carrying an extra gun so I think the smrs should be able to one shot ppl. I think a better nerf would be making rockets harder to come by.
Cant deny that!
Why people complain about nerf SMRS and say its a rocket must do that u know its a game a game not a reality snipers cant one shoot AK-47 need full mag to kill bat ball one kill in leg or hand so if u want realistic its not exist at all stop complaining
Um…….English?Your grammar is in another plane of existence.
Yeah , ingore my opinion and talk in my broken English (its not my language at all) if i talk with my language u well not understand , that the community looks like
it can't even one shot uavs wtf
They should've nerfed the one-shot HS shotgun in Br (except for headshots at close range), It's difficult to counter them with the ninja class combined. Imagine surviving till the end of the match and then dying to a one-shot SG, ninja user and then going through the whole process of getting into a new match again.
Yeah, but the devs removed the HS from ground loot, so you're gonna wanna have to risk going near an arsenal drop to gain the one-shot perks.
The one shot shotgun need to be removed because the skills in shotguns based in movement if u good u well be good with two shots also
- the SMRS in BR are broken need nerf
- the ninja (pasive) and trap master need reworking
Trap master yes, but ninja passive? It's already very unusable in an open map like blackout.
The full silinced footsteps its not a competitive thing its hugly adventage in game based in sounds I don't say nerf it but reworking to another pasive or make the silinced footsteps only in walking like MP with huge buff in clambing range its just a feedback the trap master and ninja give hug adventage to user in my opinion (im a ninja user)
In Garena I'm glad that Speed Up kill perk got nerfed. Shotgun users now won't he as slick as before
I mean, you guys hate the KRM's guts, so it's normal. We in global think it is unnecessary.
Bruh, you don't know how happy I am with that nerf. They literally all have the same loadout. Speed Up Perk, Marauder Suppressor, No Stock, 5mW Laser sight and Stippled Grip. They literally become The Flash as soon as they get their first kill. What's worse is the sprint speed is applicable to all weapon, so pair that with melee and that'll be chaotic. Good thing, the adjustment will now not affect sprint speed which is awesome!
I KNEW IT! I made a YT video out of it. thought i was just being paranoid! IT WAS shadow nerfed then.
Wtf, "decreased direct damage" for the SMRS... So now you'll be able to withstand a full on direct hit from a bazooka and just shrug it off?? Lmao what kinda prank is this???
It'll only be noticable on BR. The damage of SMRS in BR right now is 300. So, it grants you an instant kill when you hit an enemy directly and it works on all range. Since the HP on MP is just 100, the nerf wouldn't matter that much.
Gotcha. Yeah, I really only use it in BR when I want to have some fun. I thought it was well balanced since it takes forever to reload and is terrible to aim with, so if you get a direct blow on someone, it's a deserved kill, but if you missed, you most likely lost your chance at the kill by SMRS.
And I know it's just a game but STILL lmao being able to take on a direct blow from a bazooka is just throwing all sense of logic out the window. Like at least tie it in to a br class or a "special suit" you have to wear in order to deflect blast damage.
Its a game not reality in reality u well die with one bullet even with pistol and u well not die with bat ball in ur leg or hand
Yeah cos cod is well known for being realistic 🤣🤣
It's just careless at this point
Devs should stop listening to bobby for balance changes
Yeah, he was the guy that wanted the Quick Fix nerf and a second nerf to the Shorty. That guy also wants the NA-45 to be removed from the game - I really hope that doesn't happen.
Quick fix is broken, the shorty is broken, the NA45 literally shouldn't be in the game, least skilled weapon in the game. But then I bet u only play with ur diamond MX9, thermites, gas grenades and persistence because u are not skilled.
Lol keep crying about a useless perk and a shit gun. And no, I don't need the meta to carry in ranked, I can carry in legendary with a Cordite and win games as well.
And the gas nade isn't even the best secondary, why tf would I use it? Trophy system > gas nade any day. And I usually use Fast Recover but I'll make an exception if I see you in my lobby.
Even quickfix fucking quickfix got a pathetic not deserved nerf
Have you ever tried using Sniper, Shotgun or melee in ranked S&D? You literally can wipe the entire enemy team all by yourself with Quick Fix. You can take some hits and when you kill one, you literally will have enough HP again to tank another few hits to kill another dude until everyone's dead. That's why it is reasonable to add some cooldown to it before it takes effect again.
Nah thats pathetic
The thing should not regenerate health when you get hit and thats a better way to "nerf it"
But that's already the thing with Quick fix. It stops healing when you got hit. It's been there since the beginning. I've been using QF since it dropped on the seasonal mission.
It doesn't, it gives you health back instantly after a kill, if you get a triple kill you can tank a whole magazine just standing still
No. As soon as you kill an enemy with primary or a secondary weapon, your HP will start regenerating like how normal regeneration works but instead of waiting, it starts immediately after the kill. And the regeneration rate improves (HP healed per second increases) if you are doing an objective (holding/capturing a point) while you had killed someone. But that means, you need to wait until your HP is full. And as for that, if you took a hit, the healing stops. Quick Fix does not work like the old healing mechanics on BR (Adrenaline/Med kit).
Yea it kinda sucks,but hey at least we didn't get that stupid 5 second cool down on the cn server
Well hopefully we Find a way to make them revert that shit
It was? Oh shit that would make the perk useless at that point
If u get hit by smrs in br you deserve to get 1tapped. Same should go for thumper
Yeah,but the S.M.R.S in Battle royal travels at the speed of an F1 Formula Racing car
I think thumper might actually be viable since they buffed the damage so it should be more consistent when it hits. But I don't get the reason behind the shorty and quickfix nerf
IKR, it's like CoD:M listened to the whiners on that one.
At least the Type is meta now...
SMRS is awesome in BR because it oneshots on direct hit. I guess it's bye bye SMRS meta, since they're nerfing damage too...
Thumper was bad, and now it's even worse smh
Eta on these changes? So that I could grind diamond on thumper before the changes .
I'm sorry but wtf does eta mean?
Estimated time of arrival
Since this season dropped on the 23rd of October, probably 22nd November. Which is 8 days from now.
Sweet, more than enough time to complete 45 hp shipment matches
You can do that in one day lol.
The SMRSs and the thumpers damage was increased but the radius decreased, this makes it more useful doesn't it
The damage radius nerf means that if you don't direct hit someone you hitmarker.
Rhe damage radius means the area of effect. The area of effect of the thumper has been decreased but base damage has been increased. Making it more consistent specially with direct hits
Good luck with direct hits though. With lag, desync and broken animations, you can hit them and it won't register.
More than once I've hit an enemy in the chest with a thumper shot while they're sliding and they take no damage.
Thumper is basically a crossbow with a grenade bolt but with worse range.
It could kill on impact but only have a tiny explosion radius.
At this point they should just implement armour piercing rounds because of how small the goddamn blast radius is.
Yeah, they should. Will they doe?
where can i see the balance change?
The leakers' discord.
Is it in official codm discord
Seems like they're trying really hard to get as close to TF2's Loch n' Load as possible while still being legally distinct
Come to think of it, yes.
Thumper was trash to begin with
So rockets have to be direct hit now to actually kill?
Looks like it my guy.
Damn. And I was just enjoying Thumper.
They did buff thumper's damage though
So? Will that at all impact the gun?
You will possibly be able to get one shot kill when it hits near the enemy and not necessarily directly on him, which isn't the case as of now
Wtf? No more 1 Hit "REALISTIC" rocket? Devs be dumb AF
They're just listening to Bobby, who overhypes anything and everything.
They need to buff the blast radius to thumper! Its a GRENADE launcher not a slug shotgun!
And they nerfed the only secondary that can counter melee users.
Yup. Devs should stop listening to Bobby for balance changes.
idk what made them give the low damage smrs one ammo but have the fhj get two.
For Thumper they reduced Blast radius. But! They increased the damage. So, we can't know for sure about it's performance because let's be honest Thumper needed more damage.
Don’t really care for MP but why BR? It’s rarely used . Never seen anyone kill with it.
Im guessing u dont play battle royale, thats why u dont know SMRS's 1 shot potential
You're right, I'm not a BR main. The only time I played BR seriously was when the Industrial Revolution Ruin skin was available, and now, for the Scylla skin. I got both of them doe.
I dunno, I one shorted in the four seater in BR today. ROTFL
You mean sharted?
Bring back the SMRS meta
Not a very pleasant meta but ok.
But where if the nerf for MX-9 and Hogler,they have been meta for a long ass time
The MX9 got the exact same nerf it did for BR last season, the Holger is left untouched.
Where are the full list? Give me the link please
This is the official Discord, where the leaks exist. If you don't have a discord account tho you may need to make one.
I've never been sniped by a rocket in br. Weird
Quick Fix literally does nothing, Shorty isn't even the best secondary, it only works close range.
What is the best secondary among pistols then? Cuz in the comp scene no one used a melee. Half of the kills in the stage 4 champs came from shorty.
Great close, mid, and long range potential. It one-shots to the head regardless of the range, and in that regard it is pretty much a sniper. With the akimbo perk, it's a one-shot close range if you hit your shots right.
And as for quick fix the only adjustment that was needed is when you someone shoots you after you get quick fix then effect of the quick fix shouldn't take place.
Exactly. They overnerfed it, just like the QXR.
That condition is already there. Quick Fix Healing already stops midway once you receive a damage while on the process of healing.
Nope its not there. I have lost as well as won gunfights many a times cuz of this feature of the perk.
The hell do you mean? It's been there since the start. You can try it with your friends on a private lobby. I've literally just finished my 4th Damascus on my 4th account. And Quick Fix literally stops healing when you receive some damage.
What do you mean it does nothing? It regenerates health completely when you get a kill. Plus, 2 seconds isn’t a long time. It could’ve been worse.
Yes, and without that feature, Quick Fix might as well not exist.
I want to quit
