Boosters changed! They now increase amount carried instead of damage/radius Big Grin

Summary:
  • Normal Grenades and Claymores got a buff (can kill a 100HP soldier) and the boosters now only give you more ammo (2 grenades and 3 claymores). You get no extra damage or radius from the booster.
  • Mortar strike got a buff as well and booster now only increases the number of shells (no damage or radius bonuses). Plus, MS has full self-damage now.
  • Mines got a buff and booster gives you 4 more mines and 200 extra damage. Mines were a bit bugged on PTE though. Sometimes dealt little to no damage.
  • Extra damage/radius effects of C4 and XM-24 boosters have been removed and the boosters now only give you 3 more magazines of each gadget. Normal (unboosted) versions have mostly remained unchanged.
  • Full details here: http://battlefield.play4free.com/en/foru...#pid902629


Update 9/7/2012: PTE is no longer up.

We are testing booster balance, yes.

So please try out (mostly) exploding stuff with and without boosters.

Thanks!

Based on what i've seen so far, that grenade needs to be nerfed a little because its radius is far to high and its causing complaints from much of the community.

The mortar strike was a nerfed a little too much and needs a slight buff on the normal and boosted. Not too much so its back to its OP'd stage again. That was very stupid. Its normal use should have some splash damage and maybe one or two more mortars that fall. Also, The boosted should be buffed, but only to the point where the splash damage is increased only about 10-15 more damage.

The Airburst grenade launcher is very OP when boosted, but without the boost, a direct hit is the only thing that will get you any damage. Increase the damage slightly, and nerf the boost.

The RPG, depending on realism of EA, they should make splash damage, because lets face it, if you shot a RPG next to a person, you should expect some damage. Not too much just some. The boosted should not affect use on the ground on troops, but increase damage on vehicles.

I have a PTE account and this is my opinion of the next step, I have tried every single one of these and these are my conclusions

nice, let's hope they do similar damage buff to non-boosted claymores too
boosted and non boosted Mortar Strike could use slight buff in damage too
