I don't understand the lightning strike rage

Understand the laws of physics? This whole game defies the law of physics.

True. They should just take out the announcement then because it's a kick in the face.

"2 min in demolition"
"I Die, Enemy Hunter Killer drone inbound, die, Enemy hellstorm missile inbound, 2-3 deaths on our team, enemy hellstorm missile inbound, 1-3 people die every strike."

Wish they implemented spawn protection from KS like MW3 did. Because right now I am dying less than 5 steps away fro my spawn in quick succession at times.

What does it matter, people won't find indoor cover within 2 seconds anyway.

There needs to be about a 3 second delay added to it. You hear the announcer before it happens and you can react to get into cover. The only problem is if the make the delay too long it becomes a mortar team all over again.

I still think the best way to balance it, is to lock you in when you pull it out, and announce it as soon as you it the D-Pad.

Quoting the Topic Creator's original post is stupid and redundant.
I'm here for intelligent arguments or flaming. It's your job to decipher which.

Even with the Mortar Team's 5+ second delay, the Lighting Strike would still be much better because the delay between strikes is much shorter and they each seem stronger.

I think the UAV scan should be remove for sure. I'm not sure about adding a delay though since that's the whole shtick. I'd swap the point requirement with the Sentry Gun first.

its not an actuall lightning strike. its a bomb


The bomb strikes as fast as lightning though, hence the name. It hits the ground literally a second after you call it in.


No, it's called a lightning strike because the aircraft is an F-35 Lightning II

Hate to break it to you, but those aren't F-35s.

In game those are referred to as F/A-38s. Whatever those are.
