Ah, that explains it, I was only using it at very close range.DaxSeven09 wrote:I have been picking it up too, and from what I can tell is the spread is a lot bigger. I have had a couple of games where most of the other team has quit, and it has given me a chance to look at the weapons a little closer. The AR has changed with the spread, and seems to require more controlled pulse shot than before. I like it actually. I just wish it was more available than one pick up on a map here or there.ArchonHutere wrote:I've been picking up the AR sometimes in strongholds, it doesn't seem different.DaxSeven09 wrote:The fact that they have had "...a great deal of internal playtesting...", and still thought the BR was a good idea is a little worrisome. There will inevitably be very little AR data due to it not being a loadout, and I haven't seen hardly anyone picking it up. I don't even understand why there are still untuned weapons on the maps like the Storm Rifle, Boltshot, and Needler. Vetoed has already showed us that there are going to be times when someone picks up one of these uncontested weapons and wrecks the game with it.Dead End 24 wrote:Following a great deal of internal playtesting and iteration, we’re now readying to release these re-tuned weapons to the wild to get game data and player feedback to determine the final results.
I could be wrong here but this is what I can remember at this time. AR spawns (and these are with the Silencer)
Fathom: 2 both Treehouses
Regret: 1 Bottom MId
Coliseum: 1 Bottom Mid
Stasis: Stongholds only, AR Bottom orange elevaor
Torque: 2 Not sure what it's called but the Hallways on either side
The Rig: None
Eden: 1 Camo spawn
Empire: 1 Bottom mid
Edit: added AR on Stasis after RollCats posted.That's it I think. If I am right that is 4 out of 10 maps without an AR. How will this be a comprehensive test of the AR a weapon that it still a loadout weapon in most playlists. It just seems like it was overlooked or was purposefully left out.
