Gortaak, nades have little to nothing to do with with how the primaries are balanced to eachother. And desipte what primary you choose, you'll always have nades. Naturally they're going to be used a lot and be responsible for plenty of deaths.

Apparently you haven't played gathers nor done research, because in the 1.5 WM ruger is a lot closer to 50/50 between 2-hit and 3-hit kills.


Also, you two lack Imagination. Of course M79's popularity can be cut without making the gun crap. Ever tried pre-1.2 versions? They had a good "design flaw" that prevented M79 from being rush friendly. Every weapon can be balanced.

Offtopic: I have a quick question mainly because balance boy is posting in this topic. What weapon are you comparing the m79 to on how to much to nerf it? Whats your base, perfectly balanced weapon? Or are you kind of shifting everything around all at once?

There's no "guide line weapon" which to compare the others with. The weapons in general was decided to be buffed a tiny amount, while bringing their strenghts, usability and usage closer to eachother. But the primary that was changed the least was the Ak. So you could almost say that the 1.4.2 Ak is the other weapons' role model for this version.

It's to Damn easy to kill someone with a ruger. But noone cries about it.
Seriously, The only noobs are the ones complaining that it's a stupid noobish weapon

[sarcasm] Lets let the HK shoot arrows and the barret shoot LAWs. OOh And lets have the M79 shoot grenades as its a grenade launcher [/sarcasm]

Like all 1 hit kill weapons, it has a downside.

This would turn the m79 into a poo shooter. "Take away the explosion effect". Its a Granade propeller. If it dosn't have the boom its a poo shooter.
