Since everybody is chiming in on this, smaw isnt that difficult to avoid. Just use the terrain to block the shots as much as possible and use explosive focus. It'll force them to ise their secondary weapon. Works for me every time. Idk about being able to get a RoT cuz if there are enough smaws then it can't be helped. But the smaw isn't that bad.


This is a customary way of countering these users. Ask Ventus, he'll love to tell you how many times he's succumbed to this strategy by me (sorry, Ventus).

Have any of you ever had a SMAW 1 on 1 with him?

If you think the SMAW is op you obviously have a slow reaction time, poor map awareness, and a lack of adaptability.


Not if it is shot at point blank or you already have low health. It's rather circumstantial.


Map awareness covers that.

Sometimes you just aren't aware.

Or sometimes your target is equally aware. Plus in some modes it's hard to be aware, lol!

Hardcore for example or if you aren't using a phase rifle and are facing squatters in "norm.core" lol...or they have stealth and now how to use it.

C2 is a high speed game, high health too. Map awareness only goes so far, you have to be aware of the dots, not just the paper!

Course knowing the maps help you to anticipate ...but this isn't cover heavy, hiding spots galore, first shot wins CoD. It's why this game is so special.

XAISPX and Signal always fun games! Yes the one on one SMAW fights were fun and you are both deadly with the PR. Just makes me work harder to kill you and stay alive.

The SMAW is no different than any other weapon in the game. It has pluses and minuses. I have probably learned to use it better than most just because I like it so much. I know what it will do and I have adjusted my timing for the time of flight lag.

It is great in mid range. But only OK at long range against flat footed noobs and sometimes against good players if you can anticipate where they will be when the rocket arrives. Those are the most satisfying shots. I don't get to see kills with the SMAW very often because if you are sticking around to watch the hit some sharp shooter will have killed you.

Is it OP, no. The correct loadout counters it pretty easy and I get most kills against good players with my USP of my fists. It has the same weakness as the TPC that if you die the rocket no longer has any killing power. As Signal said I get killed all to often just before my rocket arives.

The other weakness is it is not a good weapon in laggy games, the SPAS is much better in the furball laggy fights.

All that said, don't expect me to stop using it. I like the sound it makes ;-).

Then Ventus can fully expect a tea bag from me everytime I kill him.
