Ah, the Riot Shield, the bane of MW3 players' existence. Since its introduction into the series, this defensive weapon has sparked controversy, and the struggle continues in MW3. But fear not, fellow gamers, as the community has come together with a simple fix that might just make the Riot Shield a viable part of the game.
A clever user took to the MW3 subreddit with an ingenious solution titled: "Armour piercing rounds should go through riot shields." And it's hard to argue against the logic behind it. The idea is that armor-piercing rounds should have the power to penetrate surfaces much thicker than the Riot Shield.
The response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive, although there are still a few critics lurking in the shadows. The main point of contention among supporters is the concept of giving the Riot Shield some "stamina," as proposed by one user. They suggest that the shield should break after being shot a certain number of times, or as one witty player puts it, "...700 times."
However, there are those who believe that the Riot Shield isn't an issue at all. They argue that it's more about skill than anything else. In the words of one confident player, "Everyone who suggests this is just bad at dealing with shields. You should also never be taken seriously when discussing balance either since your idea of balance is 'I don't like this, make it useless'." Ouch, shots fired!
These skilled defenders of the Riot Shield claim that there are already plenty of counters available in the game, such as molotovs, semtex, and a host of other tools. They insist that the critics simply refuse to adapt and try different strategies. "Also, you want a counter when like 6 already exist… You just want to shoot them and not need to adjust to anything by this statement." Touché.
However, let's not forget that this solution is all just talk among the community. The MW3 developers have remained silent about the state of the Riot Shield and any potential changes. So, for now, we'll have to rely on the ingenuity of the player base to make the Riot Shield a force to be reckoned with or a mere aluminum foil.
Picture this: a player, clad in riot gear, valiantly charging forward with their trusty shield held high. They navigate through a battlefield of bullets and explosions, their shield deflecting projectiles left and right. But suddenly, an armor-piercing round is unleashed, slicing through the shield like a hot knife through butter. The player's jaw drops, their shield shattered, and their dreams of invincibility shattered along with it. It's a scene that would make even Hollywood's best action sequences pale in comparison.
Will the Riot Shield rise from the ashes of controversy and become a force to be feared? Only time will tell. Until then, let's keep the discussion alive and hope that the MW3 gods hear our pleas. After all, the fate of the Riot Shield rests in the hands of the players, and together, we can shape the future of this game-altering weapon.
