Base sniping distance

Love the improvements overall especially BA Plasma Turret. But sadly sniping has not been countered. BA turret ranges below are an example from Golden Globe environment. Since that’s the hot spot for PVP.

BA Turret Type Turret Range/m
Plasma Turret 565 -> 506
Rocket Turret 553
Flak Turret 553
Cannon Turret 413
Minigun Turret 350
Pulse Turret 506
Artillery Turret 526

So good news, Sniping is still possible with BA Rocket Turret. Considering that you can also bypass firing rate on it such as the BA Plasma Turret. The BA Flak Turret has sniping capabilities too but does minimal damage compared to Plasma/Rocket. But damage is damage no matter what right. Flak ammo stacks at 500, so its spamable and usable for sniping


Thanks for that! I assumed it will be still the case already in my tests.

However we have to watch out between 2 things:

  1. Anti Grief Zone of 300 meter is technically the max.! We can’t increase it.

  2. But if we reduce the range of all BA / SV / HV turrets / guns to < 300 meter we have more cluster fights which are even more worse for the performance. Don’t think tower hugging would be that good.

So maybe there are other ways against it. At least until Alpha 8 comes out with BA building by your own hands.

Any chance we can get the same buff to HV’s that the SV’s got? At least to the homing rockets?

HV’s are already in a good position, we don’t need them to get a damage buff.

Equalizing the homing rocket damage just levels the playing field, SV’s already have macro fire and 700 damage dumbfires.

HV is alrdy powerful they dont need buff

If you get hit by those dumbfires in a hv your doing something wrong.

Macro’s aren’t even a requirement for firing multiple weapons extremely rapidly, i can unload all my weapons in less then half a second without one so bringing up macros doesn’t even make much sense.

Could say the same thing about SV’s.

Because an sv of course cant just fly right into an hv and fire, completely impossible :roll_eyes:. And HV’s never get stuck.

I agree with Abrum.

While overall the config has added to/improved PvP the SV to HV imbalance is getting worse with every config change. Please Rex please bear this in mind with AFTs future config changes :slight_smile:

There a reason many use BA to snipe, the meta is being pushed this way bases are 98% cheaper to produce then a single hv/sv. HV are virtually useless to attack bases now dps is to low hitpoints for hv blocks and guns need to be buffed. When a BA can strip the hv guns within 15 seconds something is not right. Unless the goal is making bases unkillable.

A well built SV can take the turrets off a well built tank HV in just a few minutes - thats without these buffs. HV v HV is still fun but the SV/HV balance does not feel right anymore.

R u guys talking about the same game ? SV is weak compared to HV
And base is stronger vs SV and HV


is this the monthly cry fest were we all try to get what we want before the wipe or is there a actual point to this

Base PvP sniping is cancer, job done we can all move on with our lives

It was a question posted for Rex regarding his recent changes, with some people having opposing opinions. The cry fest you’re referring to usually follows what the next season is going to entail.

You cant get rid of base sniping, just now it wont be plasma’s doing it. If this was holding up your life, Im very sorry.

I’ve seen your massive SV, and generally thats what your in. So i understand you want to have as much advantage as you can over a tank. That being said, a level playing field JUST where homing missiles are concerned isnt asking too much.

so he has nefed plasma sniping, to Rocket turet sniping thats what i read

Bring Back Armogedon start the craz!!

I enjoy sniping enemy bases that set up next to me, but can only do it for so long until I get fully zergd by them.

Then again if it moves to rockets, its more expensive to do.
