3arc needs to seriously fix the assault shield
I just recently started using it for the challenges and to unlock the camo's for it.... to my surprise most of the time a direct shield bash does nothing (playing hardcore so 1hit kills)
At first I started thinking it was just lag, I mean after all Black Ops 2 is quite possibly the laggiest CoD title to date... however I played a game on Hijacked where I came up behind an enemy and bashed them FOUR TIMES IN THE BACK and none of the hits connected... I couldn't possibly have been any closer, my aim was dead center on his back, but he was 100% immune to the shield... and it was NOT lagging...
So after that game I spent a good 3 hours playing with the shield testing it out, even going into a custom match against bots to completely eliminate the question of lag... Simply put the shield is broken and won't connect 75-80% of the time even with a perfect hit at point blank range...
In MW2 & 3 the shield wasn't broken like this... 3arc needs to seriously fix it because right now the only thing it is useful for is a deployable barrier. (and even then it's pretty flimsy)
I'm still thinking it's lag. I see a lot of people terrible using it and they still manage to have them diamond, so the kills can't be that few and far between.
I agree, its gotta be lag, cuz i've been hit from like 10 feet away with the shield and die, if anything its too powerful, I've shot one with an rp and it takes the damage like flack jacket, doesn't break until you hit it twice? C'mon! lol
I do agree as I play with a shield a fair bit, I've gone behind people in hardcore and had to hit them 2 or 3 times before they die. Also the hit detection needs to be fixed I've had kill cams where they are shooting directly at the shield from front on and they manage to go through the shield and kill me.
When I see things fixed in the game such as 'clan tags now allow you to say DONK!" I Wonder... who cares about this? Same with A.S... No one cares lmao... there's other things to be fixed way more important.
Definitely needs to be fixed and addressed as soon as possible. Prone vs. Shield Bash is like invincibility mode.
not true, ive learned to kneel and bash them into death.
I can almost always get a bank-shot combat axe on people that try that.
It's similar to the knives, where connection is everything. It's hard to bash someone if they aren't there anymore. I've maxed out the shield, so bash kills are possible, just not in all lobbies.
its akin to knifing. there is a "sweet spot" that you have to hit. not too close and not too far. it's frustrating when you first start with it, but you will find the sweet spot and it will get easier. there will also be times where the player will flank, BUT you bash him as he flanks and WOOOSH, nothing but air.
