Let's improve weapon balance!


#1

I’d like to kickstart this section with a recurring topic in all shooters with competitive intentions: weapon balance.

I’ve often received feedback like “Oh you know, the Rifle is clearly OP”, but then someone on Discord would say “Yeah nice game but the Shotgun is clearly way above all other guns”. A while later a publication would read “balance seems OK even if the SMG is OP right now”…

  • If all weapons are OP, then the game… is balanced?
  • Do weapons have clear counters to prevent domination?
  • Is it more of a situational thing, like “X weapon in Y situation is OP”?

So, what’s your take?
