PLEASE just reduce the over-poweredness of flak jacket because me and my friends have been struggling with trying to get C4 kills whilst people have been using blast shield and it is very annoying!
FJ is Op in core, UP in HC....pretty balanced huh?
dont believe me? go play Dom, both core and HC with FJ. rush to B in core, you will live through 4 gernades, rush B in HC, you will die to the first explosion within 50 yards
If they did that then we'd have to deal with the flock of people who come here to complain about not having flak jacket.
Try playing TDM. Flak Jacket is near vital in objective modes like Domination and Hardpoint because of C4 and other lethals.
Well yeah, you can hit someone wearing Flak Jacket in the face with C4, Rpg, and Frag etc and it's not going to kill them because FJ caps explosive damage at 75 which serves the purpose of not getting one hit killed by explosives.
