Flakjacket nerfed???

I dont know if anyone else is having this problem but the last couple of days I have been getting killed by betties and grenades (especially semtex) that usually would have been stopped by hte flakjacket!!

Has it been nerfed??

Core or Hardcore?

I'm not having issues with core myself.

Is this after you have damage or when you're at full health?

I'm sure you know this but Flak Jacket does not make you fully immune to grenades/betties etc.

Possibly upload some clips via YouTube using theater mode of your experience with Flak Jacket.

yes I know it doesnt make you full immune but for the past month I was using it i could stand on a betty and it wouldnt kill me same with a grenade even hunter killers unless it was a direct impact wouldnt kill me

When something explodes in your face you will die no matter what

It's working the same for me.  As in I don't see a difference in it but I never could withstand a stuck grenade even with Flak Jacket.

I did notice I was getting killed by Hunter Killer Drones more yesterday in core. I thought I was in good health. Then again I guess it all depends on how far away it makes impact.

Nerfed? I was thinking they had done just the opposite and made it even stronger. This morning I played a couple matches of domination and twice I saw flak jacket save someone that should have died. Once, when they were struck by a hunter killer - flak jacket saved them. Second time I stuck someone with a packet of C-4 while they were lying down capturing a flag and they survived.....
