You can push (i think) left on the D pad to overcharge it with a shield battery from your inventory. If it hits, it guarantees a shield smash across the board. It's an expensive gamble but a fun new element to the meta.
oh shit, thanks for that. that will make it better for sure

i play on PC so will need to figure out the key binding

Another two wins last night with a friend and a non-idiot random. Absolutely loving it when people work as a team and stick together & communicate.

Question on the Sentinel charging: I’ve noticed the charge disappears if you don’t use it, so I’ll be more careful when I do, but does anyone know how long it lasts? It’s usually gone when I switch back to the sniper after sprinting or holding my other weapon, so I haven’t been able to time it.

The weirdes slow motion bug happened to me this weekend. Felt like bullet time and I actually enjoyed it for a bit, we had a giggle (seemed to affect everyone in game). Anyone else experienced this?

Look at that packet loss icon. Damn it isn't even blinking

Every start of a new season is always fucked up

I really don't know what the hell they're doing over there

I rarely get problems but that was the worst ever. I died shortly afterwards when two others came at me. It was funny watching their bullets slowly miss but they got me in the end 😖

I'm starting to warm up to Revenant. I won my second game with him, this time using his totem successfully for the last encounter. It did help that the other team was spread out though, I could go fight one of them one on one and be revived in a safe spot afterwards. In another game it allowed me to do a suicide run to collect my teammates banners, that was rather fun.
I'm still not convinced by his tactical though, it feels more like a psychological weapon, that sometimes would scatter enemies or "block" an entrance.

FIX THE FUCKING GAME! Same problems for a whole year now like what the fuck are they doing over there

I’m done with losing fights because the game suddenly decided to lag! Fucking hell this is so frustrating!

More infuriating than teammates that disconnect as soon as they're killed, are temmates that disconnect 30 seconds later while you're creeping around trying to go unnoticed and save their ass. Seriously I'm just about to reach your box and now you decide to leave the game ? wtf !

His totem can be a game changer in the final circle. Where you’d have previously lost the game, you can go back and finish the other team off. This is exactly what happened to me a few nights ago. I seem to be moaning Lifeline again though, her heals are too useful. I’d like her Ult to be reviewed though - it’s too RNG. Make it a group heal or shield charge or something.

agree about lifeline's ult, get rid of rng

i think after this season, abilities are gonna need to be shook

find myself wanting for more speed all of the time, even pathfinder isn't enough

Still mate, pubs/casual was never meant to be treated like ranked. Especially when you have a ranked mode

Not everyone wanna sweat 24/7. Some days I just wanna play causally and chill with my mates in the party and have some chat

Now you can't chat, you gotta fucking make callouts 24 fucking 7. This is frustrating

Both when it should only be in ranked
I see, thanks.

I find that I’m actually getting better at the game in normal mode, getting more kills and wins, so I assume the matchmaking is fucked 😂

I should give ranked another go.

Lifeline needs some kind of buff in general, make her revives give back a bit more health or shields or something. And I still bemoan the lack of team effort RP.
Theres a gold backpack for that. She already heals faster than everyone else too

Duos might be friendship ending. At least in regular both me and my bud can blame the random for everything that goes wrong. With duos we cant even do that.

The gold backpack is not a Lifeline specific thing, though, so it does nothing to improve specifically on the character. Nor does it seem like players in general even realize what it's for. They see gold so they think "better" and snag the damned thing by reflex. Maybe Respawn feels that LL is already optimal, what do I know.

Yeah but again, she already heals faster. What kind of buff is in your mind?
