    Unlucky for us they will never nerf the stinger pistol, cause there are bad players that can only kill heroes with stinger or with op cheap stuff.

    That's because the stinger doesnt need a nerf

    6 shots and you can kill a hero.

    Totally no nerf needed.




    5 shots to kill a soldier

    6 to kill a hero,

    find the error ^^
  • Since heroes have been so boosted and buffed, the only way to stop seeing so many stinger pistols is to add comparable weapons to the other classes.

    Buff the flash pistol against heroes to make it a viable option. Blind them and take damage.

    Buff the heavy's barrage against heroes so each is like a regular grenade to heroes.

    Buff the Blurrg's exploding shot a bit beyond release level against heroes. It would then be a hero specific option as it is ineffective against troopers.

    It would be nice if I did not have to switch to the specialist all the time to deal with the enemy heroes. Often no one else seems to do it. So I switch and chase them off the objective.

    Without the stinger pistol heroes just wade troopers cutting a swath, only pausing to emote.

    I don't think its really about total damage, so much that a lot of current Hero play is basically hit and run - dash in and kill a load of troopers, then bail out and heal up. The Stinger is the only thing that blocks that mechanic.

    A 'good' hero player will stay engaged in the battle, and use HOK to try to counter losses from the stinger. A 'typical' hero will run away, get stingered some more in the back, and die in a corner calling for the stinger pistol to get nerfed.

    So I think the stinger works exactly as intended. The point of playing a hero is to go aggressively for the objective and enemy heroes and probably get killed in the process, not to try and keep playing with them for the entire match by constantly running away and hiding. The stinger seems to be the only tool to help steer players towards that playstyle. I wish there were more.

    EEEEh

    If you die to the stinger pistol, you suck, and the game panders to people who suck way more than it should. If it was the launch stinger pistol then maybe, but it’s literally overrated at this point, and it only slightly deters hero players.


    Yeah, cause you can totally do something when people just hunt you with stinger whole game.
    I play on PC, people can aim.

    And again, if you’re getting 100-0 by a stinger pistol, you deserved it.

    Also, if someone is making an effort to hunt you with a stinger in GA, its generally because you're doing something like killstreak farming or just playing at hit-and-run-repeat to keep hold of your hero. They wouldn't bother otherwise. I know I wouldn't - there are far more fun things to do than chase some ***** around the map, especially if they aren't at the objectives.

    Gonna be honest, I’ll hunt heroes with a stinger pistol from time to time. I rarely get kills though. Unless they are low in health. Fortunately stinger pistol rounds don’t stack. It does a good job at keeping heroes at bay if they aren’t doing so well. As a hero, if my health is high enough, I will take on a specialist using a stinger pistil. If my health is low, I won’t.

    Do you think they can kill you with one go?
    Ofc they can't.
    But, they will keep poke at you until you die.
    First run you lose 300 hp
    Second run you lose another 300
    And so on.
    And ONE player can just kill you in 3 minuts if he wants.
    On pc is just a nightmare, as soon you pick the hero, they start to poke you with stinger.
    4 guys that shoot you with stinger pistol, and you're gone.
    If you think this is not broken, well, w/e dude.

    You know, I play as a hero a fair amount in GA, and like an earlier poster on this thread also said, I play a lot and I've pretty much never been killed by the Stinger. I've very rarely even been hit by one. I'm not a very good player either.

    Have you considered the possibility that maybe its something to do with you?

    You are correct in your assessment. I related a recent experience I had in CS on Naboo in a different stinger pistol thread. It was, in fact, this very guy.

    I play since the pre beta, i have 4k hours, i think i know what i say.
    It's not a surprise that everysingle streamer just """whine" about stinger pistol.

    But if you, and the other guy that think heroes should cost 8k or that they need to get nerfed, because they are immortal, well, you right. Not gonna even try to argue.

    I have Battlefront II on pc, and ps4, i can tell you, on ps4 i rarely see stinger, on pc in the other hand, it's all about that.

    Streamers “whine” because they have an audience that they want to show off too with massive killstreaks, so one lil’ pesky stinger stops them from doing that (not really) and the cry for a nerf.

    But if you, and the other guy that think heroes should cost 8k or that they need to get nerfed, because they are immortal, well, you right. Not gonna even try to argue. Did you just admit that heroes should cost 8k and be nerfed? Awesome, join the club.

    Yea, I play on PC too but I can't recall when I was killed by stinger pistol.Yea, ppl can aim on PC but it is so slow it's not really a problem to hero player. Nothing OP about it.

  • "the stinger pistol is just stupidly OP. if you can't see or admit it, then you are one of those player who can't accept to die by a hero and start being annoyng with it"

    If you say so ... Or maybe it's fine and you are one of those players that can't accept when anything threatens to take away your hero . If u get hit by the stinger, go a different way... I'll use it to prevent heroes and everyone else coming to attack an uplink etc. Pew pew pew.... #Stung
    Nothing to do with not being able to accept being killed by a hero. lol

    You're rather a troll or really dumb.
    I go for the second one.


    I play for killstreak aswell, and the stinger pistol is just stupidly OP. if you can't see or admit it, then you are one of those player who can't accept to die by a hero and start being annoyng with it.

    So you just proved my point, you are crying for a nerf because it stops you from getting killstreaks......so........uh, you are either a troll or really dumb

    Flawless victory

    Streamers like to farm killstreaks

    The Stinger pistol is great for stopping killstreak farming.

    Everything is working as intended. Yay!

  • There are “pro” players right? Because no one is paid to play this game. Aside from people paid to play test.
  • I prefer the DC-15 with explosive shot and expert weapon handling.
    Seeing heroes scatter when you lay that long as burst on them.

    Don't use sniper much and had forgot about stinger, maybe time to dust it off... :D ;)

    I never used the stinger until people started crying about it so I though I'd give it a go. Love using it on CS ships. Great tool to hold them back

    Usually when they stinger you all match it’s just cause they are salty, I don’t mind it. I never really started using hero’s every match until everyone cried about how immortal they are 😂😂 now it’s fun to see people switch their whole gameplay up to try and kill YOU, it’s more about them realizing the hero is good and they don’t stand a chance conventionally

    They should tone down how many shots they get until cool down but I’m not too worried about a stinger, I’ll just farm my health back up 😂. Leave em be. BUT speeders need a change
  • Reinforcements are waaaaaaay easier to kill hero’s but people aren’t that good enough to use them I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️.

    Now 5 stingers... 🤔
  • Much like the duel between pitchers and hitters, the game is about adjustment. Sounds to me like people are making adjustments the OP can’t handle, so he wants the strike zone altered.

    I just can’t and no longer bear it anymore this must either be nerfed or REMOVED, because unless u want to get a good killstreak with a hero u are screwed because u will see half of the server using the same dumb pistol shooting u. Some won’t even care because each time they see someone having a 32 or 38 killstreak they would get mad, die, and respawn for that stupid gun. So yea, if the developers are seeing this they should nerf the stinger or REMOVE it so the servers won’t be filled with snipers with stingers.

    This is STINGERFRONT II

    Waah! I want a killstreak but the fair gameplay is preventing me from my ego-centric quest... Sounds like you need to "get good", as the proverb goes.

  • Got hit twice by it today during my CS obi killstreak and found it quite irritating. Especially the sound.
  • The more people complain about it the more people will use it 🤷🏻‍♂️ That’s how this game works

    I just can’t and no longer bear it anymore this must either be nerfed or REMOVED, because unless u want to get a good killstreak with a hero u are screwed because u will see half of the server using the same dumb pistol shooting u. Some won’t even care because each time they see someone having a 32 or 38 killstreak they would get mad, die, and respawn for that stupid gun. So yea, if the developers are seeing this they should nerf the stinger or REMOVE it so the servers won’t be filled with snipers with stingers.

    This is STINGERFRONT II

    so trueeeeee
  • They should ban the stinger
    Heros should be immune to all weapons
    How am I supposed to get a 1000 kill streak
    Troopers can kill me it's not fair 😭😭😭
