View Full Version : [SPOILERS] Enough of the guns

I managed to get an early copy of Unity and one thing that is REALLY pissing me off is being shot. It's not like on the other games where you get one or 2 guards standing still giving you a long warning before they shoot at you. Guards will just pull out their guns and shoot you with no real warning other than a tiny symbol on the screen. ALL of the enemies have pistols and they will shoot you when they're less than 2 foot away from you, they shoot you when you're trying to escape combat and get a PERFECT shot. 1 shot takes away more than half of your health and there's normally about 3 guards shooting you at once. It tells you to press A to avoid the shot but I found that guards wait until you stop "avoiding" to shoot you.

If you took this out, the game would be great.

Reminder

Gameplay thread titles should carry a Spoiler tag

Thanks.

All it takes is one shot to get you killed in real life, Plus a lot of people would take a shot at someone from close distance because it is the safer option then fighting a highly trained Assassin in close combat with a sword.

Yes but this isn't real life. At the end of the day, it's a video game,

I wouldn't mind it if it didn't take so much health off me

Maybe try playing more stealthily.

I just wish they didn't remove the meat shield ability

I'm super glad they did, actually. It was always OP, to the point where gunmen were basically your allies :p Haven't played Unity yet so I can't say whether the gunmen are frustrating or not, but I certainly prefer guns posing a challenge to "I'm going to shoot you, so you better get behind one of my friends for cover!"

Ha you're right but I loved that ability (always gave me a good chuckle):cool:, and you know what people wanted more stealth well you got it. You can no longer walk in and kill everyone you will be swarmed and dropped. Ubi kept that promise.

I will actually love anything that will make the game harder at this point :p

Not as easy as it sounds.

You need some form of patience to do stealth.

In this thread: guy complaining that guns are not as pussyass as in the previous version and works as it is actually supposed to work.

They want you to change your behaviour in this game. When you are discovered run and/or drop a smoke bomb (if you are just fighting a couple of enemies you can just kill them of course) and get back to stealth.Either that or buy upgrades through microtransactions ;).

Oh I have patience but ONE wrong move and one guy sees you they ALL start shooting at you. I know they're making the game a lot harder, which is perfectly fine but Arno doesn't even wear armour like the other Assassins did

I think most of us here are just jealous that you can play Unity first. ;)

Wait until the game officially releases before this can be properly discussed.

He can upgraded with armor.

Good, this encourages stealth.

Some people complain that the game is too easy, others that it's too hard. I have to wonder how much overlap there really is between these two groups.
