c4 is great if you run assault sheild, but its a bit cheap if you run and gun IMO, but i see why players use it
Are you serious? You can chuck it half way across the map! It's incredible in this game. Fast Hands/Scavenger...C4 sandwiches all day everyday.
I think a lot of the complaints about this game when it first came out has to do with the added time it takes to do just about any task in this game. I think most are now used to the timing, but C4 is definitely affected by this "delay". It takes more time to deploy, and detonate, but the boom is still worth it. I use is frequently to defend bombsites in confined areas, and it'll net a couple kills almost everytime.
If anything, it seems more balanced in this game.
Never been a big C4 user but am a fan now- it is great to clear out the stationary players. I have a ton of triple kills with little effort just tossing through the windows on Stand Off as I drive on by to shoot some people.
