  • I really enjoy this gameplay overall! it fits well! with the theme of the game!

    Awesome. If they make this patch balance the weapons correctly, this game will be on level to compete with CoD4.


    Why would you nerf the shotguns???!! Bowling here’s a pro-tip, never nerf the worst weapon class in-game. The person who asked to nerf the shottys, is a dick….. atleast give the shotgun users a change…. another tip, nerf the f***ing damage of the type 95!!!!! 2 shots needed to kill? wtf!! that’s 1.5 burst, in other words; one bullet. First you buff the shotguns, than you ruin them again, what the f*ck is going on in their heads???
