Tired of heroes dominating games? Stinger Pistol.

  • Played with the setup for a few hours this morning....it definitely has mixed results since most Heros can dodge so fast and the stinger pistol has a very random spread. In most cases, I noticed, it would mostly make them run off for cover...which is beneficial as well.

    Good observation. If you're the only person around and you start hitting them with it, then it either does a little damage and makes them come at you, or does a little damage and makes them run away and hide. Ideally you can catch them while they're engaged with your teammates, and do a lot of damage.

    I do miss the accuracy and range of the bf1 Stinger, if they made it that accurate again it would come close to perfecting the weapon.

    To be honest, the Stinger is good for certain heroes like Palpatine and the like, but against heroes like Yoda and Bossk, it does almost nothing. Chances are it’ll be those two heroes causing you the most grief, not Palpatine, Vader or Chewie. I’d comfortably say it’s those two characters that are the best heroes in GA right now.

    Don’t get me wrong, Palpatine is still good, but with successive nerfs and his latest fixes along with his inability to lock lightning at close range makes him a liability on most maps now. Bossk is the ultimate Dark Side objective player, and Yoda is the ultimate defensive counter.
    Obviously some heroes are more vulnerable to the gun than others, but in general it is an effective method of taking them out. It's not much use against a good Bossk player, admittedly, but against a bad one it works (a bad Bossk meaning that they try and snipe without checking surroundings every shot or two, don't place traps, and don't stay mobile). It's also an effective way to harass a Bossk - keep following him, whenever you have an opportunity to shoot him, do, and try not to get caught by mines/Dioxis. It will eat away at his health, and although he can regen it it does keep him out of combat for a while, especially once you do 150-200 damage or so.
    Yoda is probably one of the harder heroes to take down with the Stinger, I agree, but again it's not impossible nor is the weapon useless against him. It can be used to neutralise his health bonus, especially if you get the hits in at the right time (i.e when the health starts to dissipate) and if you can flank him, as the block does neutralise the shots.

    The majority I agree with, save for the comment on Bossk. I run the health regen card if you’re standing in dioxis, and have been hit with the stinger pistol before with the full magazine, and I can assure you it does nothing. You just regen it all back and you don’t even need to reposition, meanwhile your mines and gas are eating away at your opponent’s health. A good Bossk who pushes is nigh on unkillable unless his team doesn’t back him up, or he makes a mistake.
  • Just to check when using the stinger pistol. If I shoot someone they then have the dot effect. If I shoot them a second time does that just restart the dot effect or does is apply a second dot effect, stacking damage with the first?

    the damage stacks and headshots do more damage too. If you unload a full clip can do crazy amount of damage

    It's not a complete solution, but it is a solution. The Stinger Pistol hits heroes much harder than it does troopers, and it continues doing damage after it hits. Purple it up and it does even more.

    If there were 2 or 3 players in every game who grabbed a Specialist with a Purple Stinger every time a hero caused trouble, it would make a big difference for everyone.

    EA isn't going to stop catering to heroes, isn't going to take the heroes down a notch -- so we'll have to do it ourselves.

    Rally around the humble Stinger, soldiers! Down with the demigods who think these games belong to them!

    Thank you,sir,im going to keep this tip in my head. Thank you 👍
  • Yes it can be annoying if I was Bossk. I tend to hunt down those stinger cowards . But lately I found iden to be the best villain just because she can melt any hero 1v1. Kill their Yoda = win.


    I prefer to hit on a hero head on with recharge command =double improved flashbang. 4 burst headshot they are gone. Stinger pistol is for cowards.

    LOL. Sounds to me like maybe playing Bossk is for cowards.
  • Alright, it may be a coincidence, but I see a lot more players using Stinger Pistols than usual now..

    No, it is for Hero hunters. Bossk falls prey to a stinger pistol gun combo, probably the easiest cause he regenerates extremely slowly.

    Yeah I do, but I don't own a mic. I'm horrible with the Specialist class, but I'll definitely try a Hero buster build.

    It will be awesome to have a coordinated group, you could just have one person running stinger, and the rest are the other classes, so they can gun the hero down! It will be many tales of nameless heroes, helping their team one hero at a time.

    Well, you don't need everyone to run a stinger pistol, you just need one person really, just to prevent heals and stack dots.

    That would be cool. I imagine that the best squad would be one of each class. Specialist stings the hero at least 5 times before taking out his A280 while Officer tosses flash, Assault tosses The thermal detonator, Heavy tosses impact grenade while firing on the hero, then gets recharged by Officer for another round of explosives, and if they aren't dead by then, the stinger venom will kill them off lol. That's what I hope I'll see.

  • I can only imagine the frustration and language of the hero gurus once squad spawn is here. These forums will be rife with new cries to buff this or that once an organized effort rises against them.

    So far I’ve had the most fun doing this on second phase Kamino. I’ll plop down in one of the staircases that goes to a platform. Peek my head over and usually a hero is just sitting there waiting for people or is to busy engaged with someone actually on the platform

    That's how it works though. I rarely think to emote. But one time, in Hero Showdown with Han, I killed Darth Maul, and I emoted the 'hokey religions and ancient weapons' one. It was very appropriate, but I didn't consciously know which emote it was.
