I came back to planetside2 and found heavy infantry to be a big letdown in the 1vs1 department.
I've tried a few different LMG's and teh battlerifle and I am not getting the results I want in a 1vs1 fight.
So with max nanoweave armor and adreniline shield stupid light assaults are just tearing me up.
Maybe I'm just out of practice sure my headshots are not on point right now and I am working on that.
But the NC and TR time to kill for basically everything seems to be quite a bit faster than my Heavy with high dmg or high fire rate LMG's.
I got fed up and went light assault with a serpent (high fire rate carbine) And all those stupid situations where I was getting torn up turned in my favor.
I was killing NC heavy infantry with their shield up no problem.
I love heavy infantry I don't want to let it go just because it isn't performing like it used to for me. The only thing I can think to do is unlock the SVA88 since it has a pretty good fire rate.
But I don't want to spend the 1000 certs and still have my light assault have a better time to kill.
Now I had the gold SVA88 on the PS4 Version and it was pretty much an all around beast long and short range.
I guess I'm just looking for some guidence maybe there was an update and heavy infantry got the shaft because it really doesn't feel as good in a 1vs1 as it used to. I feel like my shield should really do better or the LMG should kill faster. Or maybe light assault is the new heavy
