Nerf Cloaking.

SwagridSwagrid Member Posts: 519 Corporal
We all know that snipers are getting really annoying nowadays due to cloaking. Normally it would be a fair battle if the sniper wasn't using cloaking (unless they were using damage equipment) but with a duration of 20 seconds and a cool down of 25 seconds they can easily cloak again in a short period of time.

What I'm suggesting is decrease the duration and increase the cooldown. Cloaking was meant to help you get away from the danger and get back to battle, not be used the entire time and make yourself harder to detect and prevent yourself from being locked on.

Changes that should happen:
-Duration decreased from 20 seconds to somewhere between 10-15 seconds
-Cooldown increased to 30 seconds
-now no longer makes someone who was previously locked on to you to lose their lock unless other effects go into play (goes out of vision or behind a obstacle)

What do you think? Any changes to add or remove? Change a change?

    This is ok. Sniper's special speed perk is another factor in the whole "op" cloaking.

    Sniper special speed cooldown boosts are the real problem. That problem stems from the low health of the Sniper class. Solution? We fix Sniper health so that Sniper special speed doesn't make Sniper cloaking too much of a problem for people facing a cloaking Sniper with a very powerful Sniper weapon.

    Cloaking is fine now. It got a re-balancing a while ago.

    I know, but I want to use my other specials all the time and not have it for something to use on occasion.

    Well you mostly see cloaking sniper's because of their special speed on most of their melees, secondaries, and I think just blow dart for primaries. So yeah that all adds up letting u use ur special much faster. IMO just decrease all the 20% special speed to 10% and anything lower to 5%.

    Aware of both, but
    1. I want to use my normal specials
    2 Despite its low health it can escape easily
    3. Within that time it could activate cloak again.

    Then how the hell do I be sneaky?

    You still have the ability to cloak, just not as long and you can still be sneaky.

    It's actually quite obvious to spot now, especially for non-stealthy noobs, and it's already actually underpowered as it is (thank goodness)! If you must nerf something, nerf Sniper's quicker special cooldown.

    Cloaking is fine.
    If you can't fly, than run,
    if you can't run, then walk,
    if you can't walk, then crawl,
    but whatever you have to do,
    you have to keep moving forward.

    You have 3 load outs for a reason

    Back in BBR and early BBG you only had one loadout and hoped that someone was using something that you could counter

    Also sixth sense goggles helps with seeing behind walls and helps with general aiming because you just shoot between the brackets (even though it lasts for a very short time)

    Play Brave Frontier and you won't care about cloaking. :tongue:

    Hmm, I do remember that. You bring up a valid point. But I like using my load outs for other classes and specials meant for them

    30 secs too much. That's a large fraction of the map. Why can't cloakingbe 7 secs cloak and 14 secs Cooldown? Like a quick escape? But you're right, people are relying on it to be harder to detect when shooting than running away.

    Cloaking was already nerfed. No need to beat the dead horse some more.

    @TheAwkwardGriff No use, people can't see that it's dead

    I dont really think invis is all that bad, its pretty easy to see them if they move around and snipers usually have that red dot sight on their gun so you can find them easier.

    Don't want more disagrees? Lol. Just hope no one revives it. Even if it's locked people can disagree.
