Riot Shield
« on: August 01, 2008, 03:16:36 pm »
Is there any possibility of rules that include riot shields (like the one in my avatar). I was thinking of bringing it but I wasn't sure if it would be acceptable in-game. If not, then its still a pretty cool rain-proofer for gear laid outdoors.

We have never had these in the past.....Because there is almost ZERO CQB.

I would say NO....But it is up to Justin.

Are there any other changes in operational limits for the final battle?

You realize if you are "that guy" who brought a riot shield for the final battle you will likely get shot over 300 times when someone finally gets an angle on you right? Anyway, I look forward to the challenge (anyone got an AI tornado grenade to set off 2 ft. behind this guy?).

We had a guy with a Shield at CT2 assaulting the castle and he got lit up pretty good. They don't cover for second or third stories very well, and of course grenades. If used properly though they can get you closer to to the walls though...

I ended up picking the thing up off the ground and hitting the hill with it, using the MAC11...

it worked alright.

Of course, then I got pegged in the ass by an SL8.

So what you are saying is that I could bring it for the final battle, but I will end up getting shot more...I could always let someone else use it. hehe...
