the boomshot = 3 easy kills

#1 Posted by 10MP (311 posts) -

has epic givin an answer as to why this weapon has 3 shots? even the biggest noob has no problem easily getting 3 kills with it and a lot of the time if you don't have it you lose.  i personally dodge the attack most of the time but whenever i do die by it i feel cheated and can't understand why it has 3 shots instead of 2.

so yea basicly i feel this weapon is 2x more annoying then the easy to avoid chainsaw but what do you all think?

I too wish it just had two shots but I don't really think it is over powered. The goal of your team should be to stop them from getting it in the first place.

if the goal of the team is to get 1 weapon on the map then that weapon is overpowerd. if it only had 2 shots people wouldn't be going around ramboing knowing they can waste 1 or 2 of them.

You. You are smart. Seriously, why cant people just stop the other team from getting it in the 1st place?

Now that that's out of the way, i think they just gave it a 3rd round so that vets of Gears one can get caught with their pants down. Cause i know ive been killed in Mp rushing anyone with a boomshot once that second round goes off. They weakened the blast radius also so i'd save thats pretty fair.

you must not play much gears of war 2 then because the boomshot is stronger now especially with AR.
