Simple fix, don't play those game types, or check your corners if they're getting you with boltshot use PV; and then stop getting up close and punching, use the DMR, BR, or LR.
To summarize stop being a noob, and start playing like someone who doesn't suck. /thead
"If your playstyle is ruined by long-range players like me being the only ones to get good weapons to shore up our weaknesses, be a long range player like me!". I think that's occured to OP and they'd still rather be a CQB player. Some of us like that.
(more) On topic; the Hardlight Shield is a good Boltshot counter; most users are so used to instakilling all day long, you can waltz around a corner with that thing up and they'll just blast it, not even muss your hair and panic. You can also put it up in time to block people running at you charging it, lower it before they can grenade, shoot them and put it back up if they try Boltshotting you again.
I haven't found a remedy for plasma sticks yet, though I've been thinking of Hardlight Shielding instead of melee attacking when I'm about to pummel a known plasma grenade user. Given that stickies bounce off the Hardlight Shield and they like to get as close as possible before trying to stick, I think it might be possible to trick them into self-sticking.
Me and my friend were talking about people that run all the way up on you with only the intention of trying to stick you lol. I like ro hope there is an award or armor you get for stickies, otherwise god help those people. Usually I only get stuck by one of those guys in narrow corridoors.
i think it's funny how melee to plasma grenade is the only thing some people are capable of.
i see them on my radar. i turn around and start backpedaling. they start beating the crap out of the air between us and throwing grenades that i just juke while i murk them with my carbine. --- -Every fanboy needs a troll to keep him disillusioned. Wookie_Is_Back is my new favorite.11/9/12
superh, I suspect you throw plasma grenades as well, and certainly go for From the Grave's when you can. So what, exactly, is your problem other than "Oh noes, I can't melee them without risk!" --- "I can't believe how childish you are, both in attitude AND breast size!" - Kusanagi to Momiji, _Blue Seed_
Anyone else getting annoyed by the amount of bullet spammers in any range? I often die when I want to kill somebody. So unfair. --- By the Nine, did that really just happen? http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Baalthezar/advanced

Almost as bad as shield spammers, I mean HELLO? who hides behind a regenerating protective field?
Or those jerks who jump. I mean, what is this? Just stay at one elevation. That needs to be nerfed. --- By the Nine, did that really just happen? http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Baalthezar/advanced
