Take knockdown shields out of the game.

★★★★ Novice

Knockdown shields either need to be nerfed or taken out, They absorb more damage then if your getting shoot regularly.

No way!

 

I think it's a breath of fresh air, to have the chance to fend off enemies when knocked down.

 

All the other BR games leave you defenceless, APEX at least gives you a chance to survive long enough.

 

But if you want more options to kill knocked Players, carry a few Grenades & toss 1-2 on them to hopefully catch another player in the blast or eliminate that one for good.

Take away one of the things Respawn invented that makes this BR game unique? Yeah good luck with that.

There are a lot of BS ways to get downed in this game so having a failsafe like this is a good idea and shouldn't be removed just because you're having a hard time thirsting

Precisely.

 

The net code renders knockdown shields near worthless, which in turn makes executions useless. Such a waste of all the effort that went into the execution animations. Not to mention the irrelevance of lvl4 body shield's special ability.

 

If the net code can't be improved, knockdown shields need their radius dramatically increasing so that finishing downed players actually incurs a meaningful opportunity cost.

The netcode can be improved, Battlefield 3 and 4 had horrible netcode at launch, but they fixed it eventually.

I don't want to call it knock down shield. Most of the time it's not working as a knock down shield, because you die immediately after they destroy the shield.

The KDS is a good refreshing idea and suit this game perfectly.
