StingerFront II

Prev134
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

  • I'm not having a huge issue with stingers... what console do you play on?
  • On Xbox
    But really u would see the other team just shooting down your teammates when they are defending the objective


  • I don't play with the stinger pistol but I'll play with the trip mine.

  • I think they should be used more not less. There have been several posts about how OP heroes are and how they ruin GA and CS and the stringer pistol is a good solution. If I notice someone with a hero is dominating my team, I’ll switch to specialist and use the stinger pistol. I don’t care about people’s kill streaks, I’m trying to win.

    Yep. This. Everything must have a counter. Even heroes. If you stay moving as a hero youll be harder to hit with the stinger. But i must admit I love melting heroes with the regular blasters.
  • My compliments go out to those who dedicate their time to purely stinger pistol heroes. May the Force be with you.

    I've done this quite a few times lol.

    When I'm in a trolling mood, it's stinger pistols and bubble melee all match :)

    I've said this before and I'll say it again....There are no stats in this game and no wins losses. As a result, nothing matters in this game except having a little fun. If I were trying hard and playing to win, I'd probably never use the stinger or specialist class. But I don't care about winning these matches or even playing objectives. I mean, I'll generally play the objectives but mostly I play to mess around, have some laughs and try out different stuff.

    It's a blast running around all match and constantly tossing that stinger on people just because you know how much it annoys them.

    This game is becoming as dirty as the previous one

    LOL -- the Stinger is the ONLY thing worth using now given all the Hero-spam in GA/CS.
    I can't use my tank any more... DICE Sweden saw to nerfing that.
    I can't use star fighters any more... DICE Sweden saw to nerfing strafing runs on heroes as well.

    @MoiisJuan - would you prefer we all just line up and pretend to shoot you as base-4 troopers so you still feel like you're WINNING as you slice and dice us like tomatoes? Maybe DICE Sweden can give you a Health on Kill buff... oh, wait, they already did that...

    Shucks, how many more base-4 nerfs do you need for the field to be pitiful enough for your hero?

    Tanks aren’t good against heroes? What world do you live in?

    I adore this weapon now, I’m just disappointed in myself that it took me sooooooo long to start using it
  • Sniping Heroes with a Stinger Pistol geting 3-4 hits is glorious!!!
  • Tanks aren’t good against heroes? What world do you live in?

    The world where tanks used to run over heroes, too. Now, they hardly do a thing to them. The world where the area splash damage was enough to enjoy watching Anakin run like a coward from my Seige canon on Kashyyyk and die horribly somewhere off in the distance. The world where Yoda's target frame was amply large enough for targetting.

    That one. Where'd you think I was? Ceti Alpha 6?
  • Loved that stinger pistol since launch. Nothing like blasting Vader in the back as he goes Rogue one in a choke point
  • I like playing as heroes and I am okay with the stinger pistol just don't be stupid when you get hit with it go for cover and then come back and show the specialst what happens when he gets too close to the action.

    Tanks have a good amount of splash damage making it very easy to hit enemies, the TX 130 is amazing for killing heroes what with laser barrage being able to one shot it aimed correctly, If the only way you can hurt heroes is by running them over, you aren’t aiming right.

    Yeah - the TX-130 is OP'd as is. It will be nerfed in the upcoming months, I can almost guarantee that. Compared to the clunkier droid Tank, the TX-130 is faster and has fire power galore. I'm talking about the droid tank. Used to be one could run over heroes aplenty---it was fun, even. Now, heroes can dunk under with near impunity. And, since they are ultra-mobile compared to your tank, they can literally run circles around you. Even the TX-130. You'll never corral Maul. Grandpa, maybe.

    If possible, I’d like to see EA adjust/buff star fighters so they can get a missile and or torpedo lock on the tanks from a slightly greater distance than they currently can.

    That could be interesting, but I’m not really a starfighter type of guy so my personal fix is just raising the BP price for vehicles.
  • If they did, the droid tank would be practically useless - it's unbalanced in favor of the air attack as is. If they improved the distance for a ground target lock, I'd like to see greater turret mobility / accuracy given to the tank commanders.

    Let’s remove THOSE

    You want to remove heroes, literally the cover of this game, so many people hate heroes so much the only fix is a large trooper only game mode

    Double XP Wednesdays were MADE for the Stinger.

  • I think I've figured out why its called a stinger pistol - it makes heroes eyes sting.

    Well, thats the best explanation I can come up with for all the tears I get when I take down heroes with it!

    I've played a thousand hours and got killed by Stinger Pistol once

    And that was because I was already being shot at, Stinger Pistol is highly over-rated

    I actually agree with you there. In the course of a regular match, its not that useful, and I don't bother with it that much.

    However, if someone is farming killstreaks with their hero for their YouTube channel, say, then its the go-to weapon.

  • I love using it on CS. Shooting down the hallways with a message tied to each shot saying "Don't come this way sweetie". lol
    Nice little deterrent.
