    Others posting here have also made the great point of having power in numbers — a 2v1 situation makes a shield much less formidable.

    What, in your opinion, is the reason that shields (and Finka) are stronger on console?
    Recoil management. Its a lot harder to hit small targets on console that's a fact. Ergo getting hand shots rapidly with a decent amount of guns takes longer and if he has someone backing him it just feels like there was nothing to do. Add in the sound glitch that magical masks blitz sprinting everywhere and you can see why they're stronger. finka gives attackers pc level recoil against generally much lower damage guns is a recipe that will lead to her being broken. Add in a higher ads speed and the ability to ignore most cc effects. You know getting killed by attacker guns that are supposed to have high recoil but that recoil magically gets removed is so frustrating.

    But my point was is s decent chunk of the community finds these ops frustrating and annoying which are the very readons the balance team gave for the cav changes. It doesn't look good when they cherry pick like that especially when they said they were going to add a more reliable counter than just knifing because 90% of the time your knife gets overridden for some stupid reason.

    Lol @ nitro hurting shield ops. All they gotta do is crouch and face it, they take 20 dam tops.

    Plus if your that close your gonna get punched in the face since throwing a nitro Is like throwing a 50lb weight and then it takes a couple secs to detonate.

    Lol just lol
