I see alot of people complaining about the sniper rifle perfect reload problem, and it is a real concern that needs to be addressed. I think as it stands right now perfect reloads are just way to easy to hit. I think that the perfect reload hit areas need to be adjusted and it could balance the weapons and change gameplay quite a bit.
Sniper: perfect reload needs to be changed to a sliver at the very end of the fast reload section. If you don't hit the perfect reload, no fast reload at all.
Shotgun: needs to be made smaller, the shotgun is already powerful enough without a perfect reload.
Lancer/Hammerburst: Make this perfect reload area larger so that people don't just go and run/roll around in the open with their shotguns/grenades. If they do, they are down.
Pistol: perfect the way it is.
Boomshot: Its a one hit kill anyway.
