    Default Ink Stun

    Seriously guys do u really think we need this in the game? It drives me insane especially when ur nowhere near the grenade and u still go into the stun mode! It was fine in gears 2 but it's horrendous in gears 3!! What do u guys think??

    Well we kind of need this in the game or the Ink would be useless in Multiplayer and will only be used for Horde and Campaign.

    Problem is the AOE is too small not to have the stun. If it was more like the Gears 2 ink, then I would say take the stun off.

    It doesnt matter anyway. With the new update and possibly before that there is NO ink stun. At least when its planted.

    the Ink grenades have slowly become the most annoying thing in GoW3 for me. the stun radius is just ridiculous......why should i be stunned and somebody be able to lancer me down when their ink landed 10 feet away from me? dumb

    Yeah but the Ink damage is like a Snub Pistol bullet. If it gets more damage, MORE than a Incendiary Grenade, then I am all for it.

    I don't think it should be removed, but it does need to be tweaked.

    The stun radius needs a serious reduction. I've been stunned by Inks before that were not even close and received undeserved deaths because of it.

    The stun duration needs a reduction as well for the same reason as above.

    I almost never use the Ink with the intention of killing somebody with it. I usually use the Ink with the intention of stunning somebody and then gunning them down. I'd say that's a problem.

    How often are you guys killed by ink's compared to incendi/frags? I mean **** outside of stunning it's the hardest type of nade to get a kill with.

    ^This, but if an ink is annoying you that bad, learn to time a good roll, it'll allow you to completely avoid the stun.

    A roll will help if you have enough time to complete the animation, or else your roll won't count even if you're far enough.

    If you're mid roll as the Ink goes off, it won't affect you.

    Maybe the radius is a touch too big, but it shouldn't be removed. It would render Inks useless.

    I love it. If you can get a stun it's very effective. It's not like a stun is an instant kill, like with a frag, it just sets one up. I've seen it backfire as many times as I've seen it work. Skilled players can time their evades. Skilled ink users can use them to major effect.

    If there was no stun it would be the most useless grenade ever invented. You throw it, it lands, does nothing, yet people can continue to walk through it undaunted.

    This is how I feel. The Ink in Gears 2 was very effective if someone knew how to use it. Well so was the lancer but they still buffed it. Maybe Epic should make a fire grenade that kills you when it is 5 feet away, oh wait.....

    most accurate thing said in this thread the ink wont be useful anymore if the stun is removed.

    So what youĺre saying is you don't like it but you didn't propose any way of fixing it...Interesting

    Make it so if it hits you than you die. Can't be like Gears 2 because were not slow as CMS anymore.

    Ok. I think they should change the stun radius but stun you in mid roll and when i hit someone dead in the chest. I know i did because when he somehow rolled away. The ink was chillin in mid air. It should kill you if its going to kill me

    The ink stun should stay, but it shouldn't stun people who aren't anywhere near the actual ink radius.

    If anything, it should only stun on direct contact.

    I am a skilled player and it has nothing to do with it. It doesn't matter how skilled you are when you notice an Ink is incoming and you start to roll away, but you're somehow not far enough away at the time and the next thing you know your standing there like a Decoy Dummy.

    Haha. That's pretty much the situation. I've been there many times. It doesn't make sense that the Ink is not even the least bit close to hurt me AT ALL, but I still get stunned? What happened? Why does every weapon have to be designed to provide easy kills?

    If you don't like what I say next, sorry, but it's the honest truth. Look at Halo for example and lets talk about Plasma Grenades. You either get good at sticking people with the grenades or you don't and you rarely get kills with them. If you miss, then you miss plain and simple. You don't get a handicap that helps you, which is what the Ink grenade has.

    Why get rewarded for what was clearly a bad throw?

    Yeah they should remove it, it's extremely annoying. I think the inks should be given increased radius to compensate for no stun.

    The only people who vote no for removing the ink stun are horrible players looking for a cheap kill. It was a little weak in GOW 2 but It was still damn effective, especially in King of the Hill and Annex or even guardian. I think it just needed bigger spread and more power, the stun is jst bs

    I think that the stun is necessary... without it the ink grenades became totally useless.

    The problem with the stun of the ink is the total paralysis... it would be like a smoke grenade stun, can't attack but al least can move.

    However... I do like how the Gears 3 inks detonate on impact, I think that's way better than a timed detonation.

    My suggestion would be that they decrease the stun time the farther away from it you are.

    That's an interesting alternative to reducing the stun radius.

    The stun radius is just horrible so many times i have went into the stun motion when the ink is nowhere near me! Obviously I'm a sitting duck when this happens so they really need to fix this stupid stun motion or remove it! I would prefer they removed it unlike gears 2 it explodes on impact and I think thats enough for it rather than this stupid stun

    Give it a huge damage buff and make the blast radius bigger. Then it'd be okay to remove the stun.

    The stun is the only thing that makes the ink useful. It used to be a big fog and good for traps, but they nerfed it a lot. Now it's worthless without the stun
