... be able to defend himself well? If the amount of grenades that can be carried by a player is reduced (providing it has been), then this might prevent the ASE from being held for long periods of time. The player would still have the ability to melée, but that does not do enough damage for someone who is limited to close-quarters combat and a few grenades. What if the player holding the ASE could bash other people with the ASE Mr. Ford style? The damage per strike could take away half of a player's health. This could help a player better defend himself when he has the ASE. I think the change is enough to make a difference, but not broken. What are your thoughts on this?
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. Hebrew 13:3 (NIV)
Maybe the ASE will have new habilities that haven't been revealed. It could be used to "hack" other players, Metroid-Style. Or better, hold it with the left hand while using your weapons with the right hand like in Ford's artwork.
ASE shouldn't be able to OHKO, people would just use that at close range instead of guns. Just use grenades or kill them with weapons and switch back. Off-topic, but has anyone noticed the inordinate amount of topics with "XXXX..." as their titles? It's starting to get a little annoying.
