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.


It's likely the F35's predeccesor since the year is 2025. The WWII P-38 was also named the lightning so maybe thats why they classified it as a F/A 38 for this game

Remove the UAV sweep and only have two areas it can bomb

That would truly balance it. I could overlook the bombing speed then

My only issue with the LS is the initial UAV scan it gets on it's own. It shouldn't have that.

Hunter Killers I really don't care about since they show on the radar and you get warning, my only real issue with them is the fact that 9 out of 10 times I'm killed by them is about a second after spawning it immediately locks on and barrels into me.

Aside from that I can easily make it smash into a wall.

The only KS so far that actually makes me say "Oh ****" in this game so far has been the Lodestar. It gets 2 flares, + they nerfed the **** out of trophies + both it's fire rate and speed of the rocket is insane.
When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.

Lodestars aren't too horrible to take out. Two rockets/two blackhats and cold blooded can definitely do it. I died once doing it, but I took one out by myself. I have one class dedicated just to taking out a big airstreak like that

They definitely aren't OP but they aren't laughable like the Reapers though. Reaper I could take out myself almost as fast as it came in with 1 trophy.

My main thing with the Lodestar is how quickly the rocket flies towards it target and refire.

It's a Reaper on steroids, for sure, but the reason it can be a nightmare to take out is because of how tiny the maps are inconjuction with how many UAV's are in the game and how ghost works

I'm not necessarily complaining. I'm simply posing the question to those who rage about Lightning strike announcers about their why. I mean that could be construed as complaining but hey, tomato tomatoh, it's all in how you see it.
