Bullet Speed Buff Test

Post by Halinder » 19 Feb 2017, 17:28

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): Buff the speed of all bullets to that of the sniper rifle for a few days to see what impact it has on gameplay.

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole): Could possibly lead to a rework that leads to marines feeling like their guns don't fire with the power of slingshots, and also make it so that xenos are no longer from the Matrix.

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc): Similar to how the hugger combat test was done, temporarily issue an update where bullet speed is buffed and let it run, monitoring whether or not it stomps out certain xeno castes or leads to more FF, etc.

Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it): I'm assuming that since the sniper rifle's bullet speed was buffed, the same can be done to the rest of the guns in the marine arsenal (M37, M41A, combat revolver, M4A3, smartgun, M39).

As an aged and weathered old orc once said, "To hold on to something that has lived long past usefulness is unseemly, how much more so when that thing, is you?"

That one old man that USED to run around as Engineer building retarded table forts and developing relationships on a questionable level with sentry turrets. Now i run around as someone equally stupid, doing equally stupid shit as a Medic.

It sounds interesting, but I'll wait for official response before commenting.

+1, most of the bullets feel too slow. Either the Xenos are really fucking fast or the bullets are that slow.

You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

They're timing the pheromones the Marines are releasing with the bullet, allowing them to predict when to move.

Increase. Also MPs will be harder to avoid (why are the taser bolts so slow btw?)

This would make quickfire rifles a sight to see.
Troublesome, as usual.
