Season 3 is going to suck.

1. The Rail Gun is ridiculous.
2. The XM37 makes cover irrelevant.

Both are new too so they are going to be everywhere. F' that.

I saw Jackfrags playing with the new gun and it is a 1 shot kill and basically hitscan. No damage dropoff (at least that he could find), no bullet drop. It seems completely overpowered. I guess I'll be on PC for this as mouse is going to wreck.

Seems like it is going to be completely a mess to play.

The new map seems really good. Lots of cover (lol, why was that not just always the way they designed them). Haven't tried any new guns yet.

Just a reminder for anyone checking out the game on Game Pass, there's an offline mode with bots that allows you to unlock weapons (like when it says get 100 kills with a particular gun, you can just shoot bots). Set up breakthrough and set the bots to easy and you'll have easy kills. Plus you can partially level up guns too so you don't have to go into MP with no attachments (It caps at some point but you can get the basics).

I don't want to jinx it but the aim assist feels like it is working again. I could actually hold a target at range more and wasn't fighting it. You still have to control recoil, but it feels "normal" to me again.

Yea I'm digging the new map lots of fun areas to fight and had some cool large scale back and forth battles for objectives. Close to mid range fighting with lots of open space and cover

The new gun is stupid overpowered. You'll just be running along and bzzt, dead. You can even harass vehicles with it. It only does small damage, but you can keep shooting them as it is basically hitscan.

I only have a 3x scope on it, but you can unlock higher ones. It takes a headshot, but it has no drop or travel time.

The new operator gadget is kind of crazy too. You just dial in the range of some cover and light people up.

I would love the new map, but these new weapons make it less fun.

Hence why I'm not playing.

I was wondering what the hell I got killed by, only encountered it once in a few games so not many people have caught on yet.

Yeah it is a level 10 unlock, so people will start having it now. Soon it is going to be all over.

I hate how they put these guns in the game, pretty sure last update had something similar? If ya really want to put OP guns like that make it a limited pickup like in BF1, or just not at all.

Map is great.
It's the holidays.
And anyone who knows me knows I don't hide.

Allg thought you were laughing at my opinion on the map. Had some more fun over the weekend, game feels like where it should've been at launch, here's hoping they don't repeat the same mistakes next game.
