Awesome! Can always use a Lifeline in hectic squad play, I like her.
I haven’t figured out which situations are best to use Bangalore’s smoke though
Any chance for platform specific balance? The Wingman and Peacekeeper are pretty oppressive on PC, and the increased tracking makes the r-301 and to a lesser extent the r-99 pretty powerful.
we're considering a wide range of ideas which could theoretically include platform specific adjustments. no promises though.
Hi Sean, if I may ask, what is your favorite legend to play as right now? Mine is Pathfinder :D
Bangalore is my soul as a weapons guy. I vibe with her so hard.
Squad comp wise, when I play with my normal squad of killers I like to run Lifeline to support their insanity.
So with talk of the new gun using 2 hopups, could we get the hopups in training to practice with them? For all the guns really. Hopefully I'm not to late with this question.
Edit: forgot to mention before I hit submit, and mods for practice with the differences.
we feel you! nothing to announce tho.
Hey Sean,thanks for this thread,very cool to see more insight into your inspiration for the gun.
Not related to Havoc,but I see you noted CoD2 in your twitter bio,what was your favorite weapon in that game?Would love to see a apex gun that was inspired by a cod2 weapon!
I've spent probably a few thousand hours on CoD2 snd PC when I was young,had a very active community in my region
So many good weapons in CoD2. Love the feel of the Thompson, kar98, Springfield, MP44, and that chunky BAR.
I was ranging from 55Dmg to the chest at close-medium range, and I think 30 and longer ranges. Hit scan helps a lot, as sometimes you don’t want to kill, but get an enemy off your back so you can change locations ya know?
Max damage is 55 for charge beam mode, and scales down over distance. (Not a linear scale but I'll leave it for the community to discover)
So Triple Take is even more useless now, k. I'm happy with the new gun but don't forget other guns as well ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Some of my thoughts... 3x Take fills a unique role in our game thanks to its fast refire rate and forgiving horizontal three-round pattern.
You can shred with it at mid ranges if you're landing 2+ pellets per shot. It's more capable in CQ than the DMR if you hit the whole pattern (like for emergency house clears)
I think its most unique role is ranged squad fire support. Tag the bad guys and suppress them while your offensive Legends close the gap.
I agree it's not a marksman's rifle, but it's designed as an entry point into ranged combat that is more forgiving for less experienced shooters. In the hands of a pro, always select the Precision Choke and flex those headshot skills.
Best shotgun in your opinion Eva 8 or Peacekeeper? Seems like the debate started off 100% peacekeeper and people are now moving towards the Eva 8. Personally I miss the monster that was the TF2 Eva 8
I'm not Sean, but don't you dare sleep on the EVA-8. Personally I'm 50/50 on whether I'd prefer a Peacekeeper or EVA-8 if given the choice - if I want that oldskool Terminator 2 Arnie flavor or relive my OG Quake days with a tight spread and fast ROF shotty...
Here are several videos showcasing it, but I could find none with steps to reproduce it 100%.
Edit: it appears to be after dropping the havoc in its already bugged state (no reserve ammo, cant reload) that actually crashes the server. I cant confirm this but hope it helps.
Hey Sean. Not sure if you know but right now theres a bug on PC where if you drop a Havoc on the ground with a turbocharger, it'll crash the game. Any ETA on a fix for this? Thanks and looking forward to more updates.
thanks, we are looking into it now. if you have a repro video please post it btw
