The overshield in my opinion is way to high up in the req levels compared to its usefulness. It only increases your shields by the tiniest fraction just so you can BARELY survive what people without the shields can't. It also doesn't really matter because there are either people with overpowered smgs or other close range power weapons or more long range power weapons or vehicles which people can just run you over with.
Now I honestly want to do some math to support this XD I'll get on itI Killed brunts wrote:I know it allows you to survive a standard sniper round, but what else can you survive? Extra BR burst? Does it considerably reduce the rockets kill range? etc
EDIT: We've established it gives about 20% extra shields, and this can stack with weapon buffs. Jorges chaingun with over shields has been estimated at 1200% shields!
(I mean, I know I proposed that. But I now want to make sure I'm not an idiot.)
