Seriously you had a balanced game why add more weapons which will just unbalance it

It's like when NaughtyDog meddled with Uncharted 2 and we got the 1.5 update...remember how that turned out. Then Uncharted 3 in general....<sigh>

They usually fix what doesn't need fixing yet leave the stuff which does
JoGam  +   529d ago
if the weapons are free then i'm cool with it.
-Foxtrot  +   529d ago
What does them being free got to do with it

Free or not if they make the game unbalanced then it's bad.
JoGam  +   529d ago
But technically it shouldn't if everyone has access to them.
Omar91  +   529d ago
there not free unfortunately :(
SoapShoes  +   529d ago
Yeah but you're under the mindset that they will be unbalanced.
Man_Marmalade  +   529d ago
The only weapon I'm sick of is 4-player shotguns on the opposite team.

*wipes away your tears*

Always bitching.
-Foxtrot  +   529d ago
If I blindly praised NaughtyDog, I'm a Sony fanboy

If I criticize something they've done, I'm a whiner

Doesn't make a different what anyone does in your eyes. Maybe you should actually try and contribute something to the site man instead of posting immature comments.

I hate that damn bow and arrow 2 hits for a down vs 3 riffle shots for a down? Or 3 bursts of the burst riffle 6-9 bullets?
FriedGoat  +   529d ago
wood > metal
AgentSmithPS4  +   529d ago
That's what she said.

I haven't tried the MP yet but I hope that they make it reasonably fair and fun to play if it's not already.
2pacalypsenow  +   529d ago
Whats even worse is that one of the best pistols in the game has to be bought? i just wanna get those 2 trophies and be done with the MP in this game
FriedGoat  +   528d ago
The best pistol is the revolver.
3 shot down.
Twiggy  +   529d ago
I completely agree, the original online was perfect, it was balanced and fair, but these DLC weapons and perks have totally given an unfair advantage to many, shotgun victim many a time over here.
FullmetalRoyale  +   528d ago
Lol the fanboy defense?

Nobody has every accused you of being a fanboy, and you know that. You are only hating on things, or posting generic "give me bubbles" comments after you've just been banned. Then you go right back to your bullshit attitude. You are almost always crying about something. Usually by dictating what features a game SHOULD have. lol Your issues with Dragon Age coop, in development for over two years by a separate team they made just for this mode, on TOP of the 100+ hours single player, all multiplayer dlc will be free, the coop mode can be played solo, and yet you STILL bitch about it.

Want to know why I think you like solo play so much? Because nobody really likes you, that's why.

The majority of gamers enjoy single player games. There is NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING THE OPTION! The world doesn't revolve around you.

Variable Rifle

Fast and accurate rifle that downs in four shots. Press x while aiming to use the variable scope zoom!

i know what your saying about balance but this gun is the only only one to worry about but because it is 4 shots one less then the semi auto i think you are worrying over nothing. It will most likely be a 3 shot down with a headshot
Evilsnuggle  +   526d ago
Exactly the Variable Rifle is overpowered. Also this is paid to win . I don't care about maps and DLC . Sell hats sell mask sell skins but don't sell things that has a effects on game play. But weapons should not be able to be bought . It gives some players a unfair advantage again other players who are not willing to pay extra for them.

Sony fanboys are hypocrites . They bashed Forza 5 for selling cars . But see nothing wrong with selling guns that exactly effects the mp game.

This is coming from a Sony fan

But the game needs new items or it'll always be just the same game over and over again. At least with new gear you can make new classes.
-Foxtrot  +   529d ago
It's not really a game which needs classes though, if you want that go play COD or every other typical online game out there.
Man_Marmalade  +   529d ago
Call of Duty doesn't have a duck-and-cover system. You just crouch behind something and hope they don't have FMJ rounds.
FullmetalRoyale  +   529d ago
It HAS classes. lol

How is that logical?? "Go play COD.."

Wow. Classic Foxtrot.
-Foxtrot  +   529d ago

I know it has classes, I was just saying it's a game which doesn't need them anyway, meaning I'd be against them adding more. Jesus Christ man.
Revolver_X_  +   529d ago
I believe Fox just sux at the online. The weapons are all balanced. The bow and rifle are STILL the strongest weapons. The pump shotgun is STILL the strongest purchaseable. Pump shotgun can down in 1 round up close. The launcher cant do that at any distance. The AR > Spectre. The Sawed-off Shotty is garbage. The Revolver > Enforcer. The sneak perk is annoying but not OP. Your claims of the DLC gear being OP is false. The core guns are still stronger. Your just a garbage player.
ThunderPulse  +   528d ago
Don't blame DLC if you don't know how to make classes to earn more parts.
XSpike  +   529d ago
My fav weapon getting a power boost!? (hunting rifle) I wasn't expecting that, I already kick butt with it, still 2 hits for a kill but I don't think it really needed a power boost
CervantesPR  +   529d ago
Its only on PS3 its already "boosted" on PS4
Father__Merrin  +   529d ago
im playing on ps4 and weapons need to register kills quicker
Clown_Syndr0me  +   529d ago
More maps - awesome!
ltachiUchiha  +   529d ago
Hopefully they add sum infected modes next, I also wouldn't mind having sum uncharted bonus maps & characters. Would love to shiv someone using Nathan or blow someones head off with Sully using his dirty harry gun lol.
Clown_Syndr0me  +   529d ago
I'm really surprised there isn't already infected modes seeing as the whole single player was based around it.
Even a co op horde mode would be cool.
ltachiUchiha  +   529d ago
Totally agree mate.
tlougotg  +   529d ago
I use semi auto, have used burst, auto, etc.... and there is always i feel a balance in the game. They did ruin Uc3 with their bs after the first beta (which was perfect then went downhill after subway beta) but i feel like thing will still be balanced, lets see.

By the way i was into it on ps3 but for some reason im even more into it now, maybe it is the 60fps difference, plus i have a squad of ppl with all mics which makes it a blast coordinating.
ltachiUchiha  +   529d ago
Oh yeah bring it. Best multiplayer out der.
Omar91  +   529d ago
I'm annoyed at the fact that I need to purchase these weapons, however I do like that you can test them out using the classes they make. Still, its annoying seeing "purchase" when you scroll down in the weapons section.
Phoenix76  +   529d ago
Free maps! F@#£ yeah!!
esemce  +   529d ago
Lets hope they stick with the free maps forever, it takes too long as it is to get into a game without spitting the player pool.
Twiggy  +   529d ago
Sick of the shotgun, people paying to have it for custom classes is a major disadvantage to those of us who prefer not to pay for such things, the original weapon set was perfect, adding anything unbalanced the whole thing.
Revolver_X_  +   529d ago
Have you played TLOU MP? Or are you talking out of your @ss? The pump shotgun has been available to ALL PLAYERS since DAY 1. Are you referring to the sawed off shotgun? The one thats WEAKER then the pump, thats available TO EVERYONE. Your either trolling or just ignorant. Either way, just stop.
BQ32  +   529d ago
Why do you guys keep b!t(#ing about the shotgun? you do realize that that weapon has been there from the getgo right? It also uses 3 loadout points plus the ammo gets expensive quickly. if you are not accurate/good with it you can not really spend any parts on other upgrades or armor so it is balanced like most everything else. When I use it occassionally because I am bored of my normal loadouts I design a loadout around the shotgun but realize it will still have its limitations. If it was as beast as you guys think then I would use it all the time. On the flip the upgraded burst is much more powerful as it is deadly at all ranges. And trust me, I know this game inside and out.

One of the Greatest 3rd person shooter EVER!if you havent played this online yet you dont know what your missing.Interigation mode is where its at,its...ONLINE MADNESS👍
