Hunters with gas and the gasmask


#1

More often than not, you see/hear the gas and by the time you’ve navigated to the the correct menu it’s too late and you’re dead. Why is the menu system to put on a gas mask so clunky and unintuitive? And it’s no good saying to just keep it on all the time, the game is already a blurry mess without it.


#2

I agree, but I’d like to add that gas masks should be an item in your inventory like the binoculars.

They should have varying degrees of quality. Realistically it should take someone 9 seconds to adequately put on & secure a gas mask properly.


#3

I agree that the “Profile” section of the inventory could be made more intuitive and easy to use.

They should have varying degrees of quality.

Hell yes, that would be awesome! I actually do believe that it wouldn’t damage the game or anyone’s fun playing it if (maybe only certain) gas masks fully negated gas effects.


#4

I wish they would work in the first place…

Different quality after that please.


#5

my vangard is running one on his face full time i dont know if it helps him or any thing but its his style =)


#6

Maybe it’s better to add one dedicated clothes slot for gas mask and activate it automatically when gas is detected? And deactivate when there is no gas (maybe 10 - 15 seconds timeout to prevent frequent switching).


#7

So, any time i happen to be inside the gas, it is automatically placed on my face, lessening my view and changing my appearance? No thank you.


#8

For that there should be an option to not to fill that slot (or clear it ):). Or some checkbox for auto use.


#9

BTW, there can be different gas masks, for example half face masks (respirators), they can have worse gas protection but without dirty glass effect :slight_smile:


#10

Respirators have poor defense even against germs, let alone having any defense against gas that can (and will) kill you.

While a dedicated slot in UI would be helpful, it is only helpful for those who use gas masks to reduce the incoming damage. I don’t use gas masks and i’d be stuck watching that useless slot on my UI, clogging things up.

Perhaps.
