At least this last expansion thing toned down the super-rpg spam a lot. They do it once in a while, but not a guaranteed 2x per respawn wave like they used to.
Panj is fucking hilarious as a map, if you ever played Peak.
>Hay guize, we realize the bots can see through the foliage on Peak, so we're removing it from all coop map rotations until we can fix it. In the meantime, have a map that's 75% covered in foliage, and a new one-life bot hunt mode! HAVE FUN, FAGGOTS!
I do like how the FAL is in 7.62x51mm instead of 7.62x39mm now, though. It really does feel quite punchy. Way better than the old AK-clone FAL. Not sure if they fixed the SKS's 30-rounds in a 20-round mag thing yet.
M203 fucking sucks dick, dunno about the GP-30, probably the same. Why in the fuck would you add a grenade launcher, with no sights whatsoever, and a huge amount of random spread to boot? Using it is pretty painful, although I'm slowly getting the hang of it. I can get it to pop close to where I wanted it about 50% of the time, which isn't terrible.
Weapon collision sucked when it first happened, although what little I got to play of the post-patch-patch last night, it did seem improved. All it does mean is that now instead of humping a wall as cover, you have to stay a half-meter or so back from it.
Which oddly increases your survival rate vs. bots, because it usually puts you juuuuust far enough back to cut down on some of their magic corner-pen shots. Something to do with source engine and corners; it appears to be there but as far as penetration is concerned it isn't or some shit, I forget. It's been an issue ever since forever.
Hunt mode is fucking dope though, as long as your team isn't full of HUEHUEHUEs or XAXAXAXAXAs. Which there are entirely too many of due to the freeeeee weeeeekend. Any team that communicates & provides overwatch for each other can pretty much waltz through the maps, except maybe Panj, for the aforementioned reason.
Also, if it's not entirely clear, Smoke isn't worth a fuck in any coop mode. If you're near the outside edge of the cloud, bots can still see you. If they knew where you were prior to the smoke going off, they have a very good chance to see and fire on you, depending entirely on how the bot config is set up. If you're playing on hardcore, you're fucked, basically.
