Really, Arti bolt rifle nerf?

 

Yeah, it's a very strong weapon still. But now you can't go in alone against 3 people with machine guns and win without thinking about it.

How about rotta carabine? It is very powerful and also has great rof. You literally can rush onto three ppl without thinking about it and win. Moreover, you don't really need too much skill, unlike Iphigenia which requires good aiming skill.
At least these are mine experiences so far.

That's a very fair point, and I'll be reviewing the Carbine as well to see how this has effected the balance between them in the long run.

I have been thinking about making the Rifle Infantry cost 150, like the Scout. This would validate how powerful they are better, what do you feel about this idea?

Tbh, one of the first nice things I noticed playing the game for the first time, was two free combat charaters, that were quite different in terms of role: close quarters machinegunner and long distance fighting rifleman. It is nice to have choice of playstyle. That's why I personally dislike the idea of making rifleman priced. However, if you think this is necessary, let it be.

This is exactly why I haven't done it and it's only been a floating idea! I wanted players to have a choice between those two different roles at the start of a match and when they have next to no money.

It's something to certainly think about, but I am more interested in fine tuning their roles balance better first than making them cost anything. Thank you for your feedback on the idea!
