    Caustic's ultimate should be a poison grenade like Bangalore's on a similar cooldown to her barrage

    His abilities seem basically useless outside of really niche situations, but in those situations he is a major pain in the ass

    Idk just seems kind of weird. In our years of back and forth about vidya I can’t recall you ever talking much about an actual game

    I also just got mirage and the decoy is nice but it's super buggy. It reminds me of the mage blink ability in early wow, honestly. Any kind of terrain change and it's a total crapshoot whether it will work or not

    i will also give them credit for fixing hardware/driver-related stuff, even though a game with this sort of backing never should have gone live with known issues that caused a significant number of players to randomly crash in 20% of their matches. i went from crashing at that rate to basically none.

    i'm pretty steady on pathfinder, lifeline, or banga/wraith.

    I like gibraltar but feel like he needs some more tweaks.

    If you can organize and move together it can be deadly using the shield then throwing down the ult.

    When people talk about net code, hit boxes, and hit registration I just kind of assume that the answer is having better aim, but I'm about 100 hours in and imo it's definitely a problem. It's especially noticeable with guns like the wingman and longbow.

    Maybe it's because I'm playing in the range of 60fps but I kind of doubt it.

    Oh well, game is still great. Still playing.

    With hitscan games it's super easy to tell, but I don't jump to hit registration issues on games with bullet velocity. I don't think any non-hitscan game can actually feel good, but it's also understandable that hitscan isn't a good option for huge open maps.

    I agree with this completely. Strictly speaking my aim is maybe average if we polled everyone who plays this game, but it's not that bad.

    In this game it's like "How did I miss everything?"

    In a game like counter-strike it's like "How did he see me so fast?"

    What kills me is that I play the same way and sometimes no one wants to see me with the wingman, and other times I miss 10 times and my teammates ignore that I've died

    Sometimes I am sick with the wingman. Sometimes I hit nothing.

    I'm pretty sure fsck~'s cousin carried me to a win earlier today with 3700 damage in a single game, where we landed far away from the hot drop. Most of which was done with a longbow. He acted all casual about it, too. Baller.

    That actually seems low. Valve had basically 2 million bans in just January and that's almost fully CSGO. And Apex probably has more people playing.

    I think my favorite thing in this game is when I stick someone with an arc star and they run away into their teammates

    If I had to guess I'd say season 2 is going to be pretty big, considering how lame season 1 was in terms of Getting Stuff. I'm not really complaining, though, because the base game is great.

    Playing on PC or console? Longbow is strong on both I'm sure, but on PC unless the dude is an absolute deadeye you can fight back with a scoped Hemlock in single-shot mode pretty well (or r301 I guess)

    Really my only complaint about the Longbow currently is how good quick-scoping is. I suck at it but it's kind of a joke how effective it is with someone who has some skill

    Also apparently you can wall jump



    I'm not sure how useful it actually is, but I was trying it earlier and it's not very hard.

    You can bunnyhop while using shields/meds also, but I gave up after about two attempts

    Console. It cracks your shields too easily. A hemlock isn't going to compete vs anyone remotely good at sniping.

    Maybe this is where the platforms differ. The damage is the same, obviously, but with a Hemlock on single-shot and a 2x or 3x scope on PC, I feel like you don't have to be crazy good to run 80% of Longbow/Kraber players off their spot because you're hitting them with ~4 shots for every time they fire at you, even if they are only leg/body hits for 17 damage or whatever. And my aim and the machine I play on are both average or worse.

    No. Not when the Hemlock is single fire. The longbow does 55 damage. 110 HS

    Still been loving this game as I think it’s by far best BR on console. Mega addicted.

    But this patch is atrocious. Just filled with bugs and issues. Game is basically unplayable for me.

    What kinds of things? I play on xbox at work and PS at home, the only thing that bothers me is that the first game or two on xbox, I can hear my teammates, and then after that, even though I can see they are talking with the icon, I can't hear them at all. Not great internet at either work or home so if there ever is a little rubberbanding, I assume it's internet more than servers or bugs.

    Dropping from games during load in.
    Extreme lag on start.
    Players or guns being invisible.
    No sounds of gunshots.
    Random caustic trap and octane jump pad sounds and at deafening loudness.
    Death Box loot out of order, jumbled, and delayed in loading.
    Certain guns won’t reload a full clip.
    And some bizarre like “input lag” on everything you do in game. Hard to explain but there’s small pauses when opening a door or dropping an item for example between when you hit the button and when it actually happens in game. It might sound like nothing but it’s painfully bad.

    Oh and 1 in 10 people I’m fighting are lag jumping across my screen

    Have you tried turning it off and on again? But honestly, damn, that sucks. I do remember a weird bug today, I forgot about it since it was such a glorious victory :smug:, but we killed this guy in the buildings outside of Market and his death box was emitting a bunch of fast plumes of smoke or something. Did not seem normal.
