Lately, I have heard several complaints about the situations in where LAWs and RPGs are used. Often they are used as a base raiding tool, but by now I have personally seen them used so many times in firefights and sieges, where 1 person initiates on a group or compound, and then promptly fire a hail storm of warheads down.

I don't think they belong on an RP server. It has almost completely gotten rid of any traditional fighting, which in my opinion makes firefights boring when I am just going to get 1 tapped by a warhead. They are uncontrollable, in the sense that they offer splash damage at great range, which could damage and grief storage and vehicles during raids, or compliant players.

I would like the communities thoughts on this. I have never believed they should have been a part of the server in the first place.

Let me know what you think!

Nah, I like them. Keep the spawn rates low and I see no problem in having them on the server.

Perhaps they could be exclusive to helicopter crashes? I am not entirely against them. But I do think getting rained down on with 5 each firefight or raid is far too much.

As I said in the other thread, we should not remove them, just make them exclusive to the dynamic helicopter crash sites rather than the general military spawn points.

That way, you can still find them, but it will be a much more difficult. RPG/LAW should be used for raiding, not PvP IMHO, so this might help in that situation.

Yes. Satchel charges can be used to blow your way into bases if that is the designed use. RPG and LAW is OP and makes a potential fun firefight end too soon.

RPG go boom

Boom is fun

Game should be fun

Game should have RPG

-1

Spawns have been lowered to as low as possible so it won’t be a problem like it is currently

Is it possible to look into making them exclusive to the dynamic heli crashes Whitename? I think many would be very happy with this as they will be there, but hard to find.

RPGs are the greatest thing since sliced bread and internet porn.

All jokes aside. If grenades were In the game, I'd be kind of okay with having rocket launchers removed. But since this is not the case, they fill in the niche of "combat explosives" quite nicely.

They also prevent people from camping a building (e.g. GM tower) for hours, which has always been annoying.

I'm fine with the "thumper"/grenade launcher staying in game to fill that need. That I don't find to be as big of a problem as the RPGs and LAWs as it is difficult to get the grenade trajectory right and hit your target.

Problem is Mak, they are TOO good at it. Their blast radius is... Wacky, but the strength is not. Even the 75% explosive damage reduction from plate carriers will not save you from a RPG/LAW blast (as the explosion is a reskined gas station explode). The M79 '40mm grenades' are simply reskined throwable frag grenades which the plate carrier will work against, making that weapon far less obnoxious.

Maybe not completely gone.. but possibly only 5 or fewer on the map at one time. 5 total, including both LAW and RPG. For reasons being I don’t have a “lower how many there are” button to push, I will vote yes to remove them completely. I’d rather them entirely gone than have them the way they are now.

They need to become some of the rarest items in the game imo.

I say toss them and reduce gate health so it's reasonably possible to take one down with an axe or sledgehammer without resorting to dex. Explosions are cool, but my favorite raiding is definitely the smashy kind. It doesn't make sense that we have infinite warheads out there after civilization has collapsed and all local military forces have been involved in a protracted war for the past 8 months.

I've been wanting these removed since they were added.

They are simply not required, and don't push roleplay. Primarily they are used for base raiding (which I frankly don't care about) but there are other reasons I can't really get into involving TOS as to why I want them removed.

EDIT: Alternative is remove the warheads from the shops and reduce spawn rates drastically.

-1 I wouldnt want to see this removed, maybe added only to heli-crashes.

No remove them but make them hella rare. Like they only spawn at helis and even then only a 5% chance of spawning or somthin

I can get behind this suggestion... They should be super rare, and if not removed, I would like to see them only dropped in heli crashes. AND REMOVED FROM THE TRADER.

-1 From me chief, My ass got saved my some rockets the other night they turn the tide in wars and battle. If someone wants to carry them and be weighed down and be a target for robberies let them. These are far too important for larger firefights just to nix from the server dynamic. I say keep them if you see a dude with a rocket prioritize shooting him before the rockets start flying. I just dont want them to go for selfish reasons. So Interested to see how other members of the community see them.

I'm on the fence. 

The RPG makes fights significantly easier and turns the tide of fights. On the other hand, it detracts from fights and makes them shorter which can get boring. Also friendly fire is extremely easy ahem

Also I can't make my boy @XxGrAipYyxX sad and take away his favorite weapon.

rockets are weird champs. +1

plenty of groups use them just to win fights rather than prioritize roleplay ultimately killing them selves in the use of them or their own group members as they are complying. #notmyroleplayserver

Just make it so launchers spawn only at Heli-crashes

We could make them more rare, but removing them is bad.

I believe they should be made rarer, I see these way too often, more than I see some weapons that should be considered common.

I believe grenades were removing because certain actions weren’t showing logs (such as placing them in a fire to make them explode). Due to this, I don’t think they will be re-added to the game. An alternative solution for those wanting grenades, would be really, to use satchel charges as makeshift grenades.

 

As for RPGs and LAWs, I personally think they should be removed. If not, I think their usage should be restricted to base raiding or have a full wipe of RPGs and LAWs from the server so that the amount of them that’s on the server is stabilized and balance. Kind of hope if that wipe does happen, the same thing can happen with .308 guns that were removed from traders. These guns were removed from traders and had their spawn points lowered for a reason. Yet we didn’t do a wipe so they are still abundant in the game.
