Retire the boomshot?

True—drop is a tough one for flying objects. I found myself switching to boom a lot. I think soldier with all the rifle cards and sniper are better for those personally. Assault rifle accuracy is actually an impressive card when maxed out. I was surprised what I could do with a full blown lancer damage build last I tried.

I haven’t played much horde in a while—I don’t have a one X yet so switching from 60 FPS in versus to 30 in horde is always super annoying for me especially when I want to be sniper.

I found that I use the torque bow. I know it’s not as effective but some damage is better than no damage lol

@BChaps figures the one time with a maxed out rifle build soldier are impressive AF to be honest. I don’t use accuracy but use mag capacity. I’m still putting DPS down range just maybe get a little wild lol

BChaps videos were unreal. Too bad TC kept making his work obsolete.

Try accuracy maxed out. It’s essentially like a damage boost card for enemies cross map. Lancer hits like a HB and they die faster. Increased magazine size is a must as well. I used both.

Active reload boost
Assault rifle damage
Assault rifle magazine
Assault rifle accuracy
Cover boost

Those 5 maxed make the best rifle build IMO. You can get a lot of damage on stuff.

Personally, I don’t use marked damage because I tend to land most of my shots with the dropshot without a problem. Berserker and explosive launcher damage do enough damage for me. Explosive launcher damage, explosive launcher capacity, berserker, last stand, and thick skin are my cards for heavy class.

Lol, these are ok on their own, nothing spectacular, but the amazing thing is, these all happened in THE SAME GAME!! It took the enemy team a VERY long time to LEARN!! But then they would always send at least 2 to camp around Boom, so I wasn’t able to get it anymore… Still, got 3… Ok, I am a bit of a jerk for the taunting after each one, just having fun…

I think the should make it friendly fire that way people might be a little better about trying not to use it to get one kill when there whole team is right there to get the guy. Use it to take out 2 or 3 that are triing to push to close together. Too many times I have seen it wasted to get one kill and then the guy dies and his team gets blown to bits triing to get it back.
