This announcement comes after feedback of the Turret’s addition to the game and the potentially negative effect it has on the game’s meta and flow. Players have voiced their concerns on Reddit, Twitter, Twitch, and so on that they are not a fan of the new Item.
The main concern appears to be that player who are controlling the Turret are entirely too difficult to damage due to weird hit-boxes. When a player is controller a Mounted Turret it is extremely hard to hit them due to the Turret’s collision stopping bullets from reaching the player.
What are your thoughts on these changes? Do you feel the Mounted Turret is as much of a problem as many are saying? Let us know and stay tuned for any additional changes made.
