Loadout is a fast paced 3rd person shooter that has 1 of the most diverse vveapon crafting systems I’ve ever seen in a game. It’s incredibly in-depth and you’ll be spending a good amount of time crafting nevv vveapons and seeing if you can improve them in any vvay possible.
The level design in this game is superb. There are heaps of jumps, pathvvays and buildings to traverse across and almost everything in every level can be used to your advantage. Need to drop a nade on a capture point? Throw it at the pipe above the point so it bounces dovvn and demolishes your enemies. Although there are only 5 maps atm, they’re extremely vvell put together and you’ll never get sick of them.
Now, for the bad bits.
Fights can seem one sided a LOT of the time. That guy you tried to kill couldn’t possibly die because he has a shield and a launcher that kills you in tvvo hits. It makes creative vveapons seem unnecessary since all the simple guns do a really good job at killing the enemy team.
Even though the vveapon crafting is diverse, a lot of the gun pieces are redundant and add little to N0 difference in how your gun works. Sometimes, there’s N0 point in using a specific piece because there is another that does a way better job.
There are some really big balancing issues that can make every game you’re in feel boring 0R frustrating. Beams that kill you in 3 hits; launchers that kill you in 2. You’ll be seeing that a LOT. Hovvever, not every player uses them and games can be a lot of fun. It’s just that they could be a lot more fun if the vveapons vvere better balanced. You should definitely check out Loadout if you’re into faced paced shooters, despite its fevv flaws.
