unlimitted ammo

Postby Russian » Tue Mar 29, 2011 02:09 UTC

I think that with the speed these guns are shooting with ammo runs out to quick. Maybe we should set unlimited ammo? Also it could make things more interesting when people dont have to worry about the ammo :)

People would camp like crazy. learn how to use more then one weapon and you will never run out. Unlimited ammo does get turned on sometimes if an admin is present and weapons are turned up even faster.

Learn to get from the first shot and then the stock on ammunition will be better.Using the main weapon for example Railgyn you have advantage over that who has spent cartridges of the main weapon.I think that it would be necessary to reduce on the contrary quantity of cartridges that at you possibility to use your main weapon faster came to an end. It will force you to learn to shoot from all guns. It will allow to stop fight on Railguns and will force use weapon switching.

shurik makes a good point

but we dont need another thread endlessly debating settings :bored2:

occasionally admins will mess around with different settings, can be a lot of fun. i dont think you've played with the killstreak reward thing have you? that can get pretty crazy.. ive also played matches were everyone has quad

We had unlimited ammo few times, it can be fun and silly at same time. It all depends on other settings, weapon power and game modes.

you'd probably also suggest using bright skins "like all the pro players just so you can see everyone easier".

Also, if you're dead set on using just one weapon you can always commit suicide to refill your ammo. Or find the guantlet bot and let her do her thing on you if you don't want to loose the frag and you don't want to give it to your opponents. Your always better off switching though so I wouldn't recommend getting to comfortable with workarounds.

i could be wrong but i'm 90% sure suicide won't refill your ammo -- it takes an actual frag.

it is a valid point however that lower ammo (or slower shot speed) forces you to be more careful with your shots and therefore will improve your accuracy. high ammo can still be fun.

suicide refills your ammo but at the same time takes a point. if you are a good player you can sacrifice a point )

If you're a really good player you keep the point. If you're an expert player you try to shoot everyone but the person who is giving you the most trouble, making it more likely that they run out of ammo :)

love the "bombs" profile pic ij. too funny.

run out of ammo? is that even possible? current settings have a lot of ammo. i'd like to see that number set to 10 for a round. ag? ij? chaos? next time... give me 1.
