So there I was, minding my own business spamming Bossk's tripmines and his Dioxis nade all the while just launching his microgrenades into random corridors like any other pro would do when I saw the strangest notification on my screen: Enemy locking on??? What do you mean I'm getting locked on? Then I saw it, a rocket, not like a normal rocket that only travels one direction, but headed straight for me AT AN ANGLE like some kind of demon hungering for the flesh of a reptilian humanoid. That thing hit me harder than a virus in the midst of an anti-vax family.

I got hit so hard I could feel my scales scorch in the hellfire of the seventh realm. My wonderful heat sensing tongue got blasted into oblivion. My kids could feel that blast, and I haven't even hatched any.

Then I saw it on my post-death screen: Homing Shot.

I must've been raging for a good 30 mins, for after my blackout I found my mother's basement in absolute ruins, my snack's cabinet had been demolished as if a Rancor had been left to its own devices after getting shot up with steroids.
Thankfully, I found a few good Doritos left and finished them off since I was so hungry. Wait, what were we talking about again?
Oh yeah, DEVS PLEASE NERF THE HOMING SHOT IT HURT MY SELF-ESTEEM AND I WAS INCREDIBLY OFFENDED.

    Are you a journalist?
    Good night, oh baby! Sleep tight, oh baby!
  • Methinks alternate facts are at play here.
  • How original...another thread for requesting nerf on the officer class for one's own ineptitude.
  • I smell a rat... a wamp rat. Which as a matter of fact I used to bullseye with my Homing missiles.

    Yeah good story bro, but really if you were killed by Homing Shot at any point, then you should uninstall and quit this game. No kidding. ;)
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

  • To be honest, I've never used the homing shot, and completely forgot it existed, until now. Will definitely be giving it a try when I get on later tonight :) Thanks.

    Agreed. HS works well against AT-RT/Speeder/Taun Taun drivers and heavies in a sentry mode. Makes heroes run. Kind of a surprising card for the officer who I'd think be more of a front line fighter but I guess it fills the slot for a distance weapon for the class. I've had some fun with HS on more of the open maps and early phases but I usually run either defusser or disruption with RC so I can provide support for the other classes pushing or defending objectives.
  • Eh. If only the missile traveled faster, it'd be pretty viable, I can imagine. Especially on big, open maps.

    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

    I read the title and thought this was a resurrected post from BF2015 before they nerfed it into the ground, hahahaha. Homing Shot in BF2 is fine.
  • It's trash. The fact that you got killed by it is unsettling. Hopefully this is just a troll.

    It can be a mild annoyance for some of the less mobile heroes, but try locking on to a bouncy Palp, Maul, Luke etc. and it becomes a frustrating waste of time.

    No they are not, every one knows it's the chairs and stalls on Mos Eisley, how long you been playing the game? and you still don't know the true enemy? :D

    Nah nerf the stinger pistol, damage over time for 10 seconds is over the top, does like 500 damage in health its insane.

    False. It does around 33 damage every shot, but it’s damage over time. It would be as if someone is shooting you with an A280-CFE. Stop complaining that it’s OP just because you died from it.
