carbonizer with explosive focus

#11PefrogPosted 12/10/2012 7:33:30 PM
I just got slaughtered by XG4 (epic was there too) and his carbonizer. Between he and Mike, I hate how quick they get me. I know they are good at aiming and I am not standing still, but are they pulling early to get that lightning effect and does explosive focus effect that?

I don't know about the lightning effect, but one of the problems with fighting someone using the carby is that for some reason, it's usually firing a second or two before you realize it. I don't know if this is because of the animation or whatever, but I usually wait for the right moment to fire, and against the Carby it's always too late.

Also, I think the carby is just a bit overpowered when used with lock-on, but maybe thats' just me.

The only way I can ever get Mike is to run and outflank him, but it only works about a quarter of the time, because most of the time I just don't have the space for the optimal angle.

Using terrain against Mike is the preferred way to go, he's good at aiming, but he's not good at maneuvering. Use that to your advantage and you're good to go.

Explosive Focus has no effect on the Carbonizer. It simply makes you survive SMAW blasts (and other explosive weapons).

A Carbonizer can fire instantly if you get the timing down. It doesn't take much to drop someone once you begin firing. Chain lightning effects seem to occur if you keep the beam on someone for the full duration (9 hits, I believe).

In all fairness, I haven't had a good connection in this game since the Wii U came out. My framerate seems to be about 10 fps. That's a major reason why I'm struggling so badly against you, eig7hty, dug, XG4Legend... hell, everybody. People are teleporting on my screen and hit detection is off.

I took a look at some old footage I had of me vs. Brennan, Valkiria, a Phase Rifle sniper and some SMAW user. It might have been from August or September. The framerate was incredible. I couldn't believe the difference.

Can't wait for that new router. I'm tired of the lag. I want my old connection back.
