Here’s my feedback for this year’s HWC season:
Although I agree with the following settings the pros have been testing before the recent HCS Setting blog:
110% movement speed
90% thruster speed
80% (90%) clamber speed
no spartan charge
no ground pound
I do like the idea of consideration of just removing Spartan charge and Ground pound of HCS.
However, i do not think Shotguns, Scattershots, etc. Basically every single Tier 2 weapon should not be in weapon pad. Instead, it’s respawn time should be increased. For example:
Despawn time: 30 seconds
Respawn time: 60 seconds (or more)
In other things, I have noticed since the latest sandbox tuning patch. There’s little to no grab of BRs on HWC. I understand it is because of the recoil and lower range in comparison with the magnum. In addition, there will be no more sandbox tuning updates anymore and will be used tools in game to change settings in HCS. So, I came up with a little band-aid (solution).
- Replace every BR with a LONG BARREL BR variant.
Basically the long barrel variant makes he BR have its old default (pre patch) range back. This will encourage players to grab it more as it will be more viable against the magnum but not be overpowered. (Because it still has recoil).
The other rifles are fine the way they are, so no changes needed there.
Thanks for reading this, hope it helps.
