View Full Version : geez that repeater rifle is overpowered.

played a few hours of jk2 so far.. and couldn't help but notice how the concussion launcher on the repeater rile is beating the crap out of everything and anything.. and anyone... that gun needs to be toned down.

and anyone else find the speed of the weapon projectiles are a tad slow ? not just the missles.. but like the actual bolts like from the stormtrooper rifle..

Maybe it's just following the movie... One stray shot kills an enemy in the movie.

They do seem a bit slow, but I can live with it

Coming off UT nothing is overpowered :) But the alt concussion fire is one of the more powerful weapons in JK2. I wouldn't say it was overpowerd, my preference would be to add a bit more power to the other weapons but I guess that would take more power away from the sabre.

And yeah, I find the projectiles to be a little slow too.

And the bowcaster :( Still useless.

I acutalli find the bowcaster very useful

Clue us in then :)

The projectile is slow, and minimal if any splash damge. Bouncing secondary fire is just a crap shoot, and shooting multiple shots primary has the same problem of slow projectiles, plus the arc spreads out quickly, so if someone is far away the mutliple shots don't have a much higher chance to hit him. At least that's my take on it.

blaster is a waste of a weapon.

BowCaster, fully charged, point blank range, enemy is facing away from you with his lightsaber.

now tell me it's useless.

Yeah a Bowcaster when its fully charged is similar to a shotgun. Does most dmg in close combat.

this game is not like all other. stop thinking in terms of unreal and quake. if your at point blank range, you shouldnt use anything but your sabre in the first place.

the weapons are also designed to counter each other.

yeah, i think these weapons are all great, This game was designed so it wouldnt be at all like UT or Qauke or any other such game. I think Raven has done an amazingly awsme job on this, and im bloody lovin it....

well a tad off topic, what does everyone generally think about the game....good/bad ???
