I know by now most of us playing online have found some glitches or little things that irritate us during gameplay, which happens in almost all games. But since the debut of ACR Multiplayer there has been one big thing that i dont quite agree with. It's the poison kills. Now poison in my opinion should be 100% about stealth, not about running up and dropping a smoke bomb and then poisoning. But this is not where i have issues with. Its being the person poisoning and being stunned..... i understand in ACB that you can still stun, while just a brief time that you could do so. In ACR however as we all know you can poison your target, walk away and then be stunned. Which is ridiculous. If i had a working capture card i could provide you all with HOURS of footage of this happening. And this does not involve me walking out in plain sight.
I just played a little while ago in wanted. I knew where my target was so i joined a moving blend group while out of sight and then just let the group take me to him. My target was standing in a stationary blend group on the outside corner where he was widely open to poison. So by the time i had gotten close to my target i already had Incognito and hidden. I had not given myself away in any possibility. As i pass by i was on the left side of my moving blend group and the poison was easy. I dropped my poison off and didnt miss a beat(blend group still pulling me along smoothly). And then i hear "WHAT THE HELL? POISON?!" and i watched my target run 10 feet to stun me then drop dead from the poison.
My target has ZERO idea that i had poisoned him until his screen turned green, then i could hear him on the mic. So why should my target get the liberty to run back and stun me when he couldnt figure out who i was when i walked right past him? I was 100% stealthy. yet i have to suffer being stunned after i have walked away?
This to me just isnt right. Is there a way where Ubisoft could eliminate that big gap of time back to the way it was in ACB? Because the way it is now promotes smoke/focus/poison quite more than ACB ever did. It also removes the reward for stealth almost completely.
So is there anything that can be done to fix this?
p.s. - i use fast acting poison. and this still happens.
