Have u ever seen the "Worm squirm" on youtube. There are plenty of ways to set up the almost ultimate camping spots with this thing. The ability to plant the shield is actually what makes this very overpowered when used in such a manner.
Yes, I have seen Black Worm. The shield when planted is not OP, it can be destroyed when set down. If it's in your hands it can't. And destroying it is as simple as using a lot of explosives. That'll finish it in a matter of seconds. However, this thing when planted still has more use then when it's used regularly.
I'd trade buffing it for being able to shoot at & thru the peep hole.
I think that would actually make it OP. My buff idea was supposed to be about using the shield as a weapon, not as cover.
What I mean is to be able to kill the shield user by shooting thru the hole. But good point, I didn't consider then the shield user could likewise shoot back through it. LOL
they need to make the glass on the shield stronger. after a couple of shots, u cant see through it
That's another huge nuisance I get when I use this thing.
It would makes sense that it takes damage, if the thing actualy worked....but it doesnt... so all that damage does is make ya feel more like a headless chicken.
EDIT: - IMO if you had the one hit kill from hardcore combined with the protection from core...... this would feel more balanced than its current state. BUFF PLEASE!.
I'm trying to get the assualt shield gold. I got the almost rage-inducing 100 kills for it. My complaints for it is how are you supposed to get 25 kills with it with no perks and how are you supposed to get 1000 score from blocking fire if people shoot through it, or jump shoot. (And throw a grenade at you when doing no perks.)
it needs to become an equipment and do less damage or cant be planted.
it does not qualify as a weapon in my opinion because well i suck getting kills with it
