Tranquilizers are broken

This item is wayyyy too broken if you have it you will win any fight as it lasts forever and shoots and hits before backpedals, rockets, or anything is shot.

Yes, they are too powerful but because they are one time item only and will be lost after prestige, I don't see much problem here (unless Gang Fight bots will keep the new weapons forever, then it could be a pretty big mess).

Some things to note. You will not win any fight for granted, there are some exceptions.

1. If both players have them, both will have the same effect.

2. They can get neutralized by correctly placed enemy's drill or similar non-moving weapon, they can miss a shot if enemy's car is too low or on some weird circumstances.

So what can be said, enjoy the new weapon while it lasts :) and btw, I LOVE that it stops these sneaky flyers before they have a chance to fly, it is so satisfying to watch them freeze in the air! Haha.

Even if it is a one time item only, I dont have it and anyone that doesnt will be screwed over by it. In gang fights the first person i go against has it and i cant even beat it, i tried having a tanky high health build but it still is tranquilized for the entire fight which lasted quite long.

Your only bet is to up the health level enough to withstand enemy hits while you are tranquilized or try to destroy the tranquilizer like balloons with drill or other close range weapon or just wait for Championship to end, it won't last forever.

Why didn't you get the tranquilizer? It was on the recent Scrap Run event somewhere in the middle of the road run, not too hard to get if you did more or less regular fights, even if you missed some of them.

It is really cool weapon to play with but too powerful for sure...

I think Zepto didn't think this through. Those multi-million point level 25 sitters have been joined by those unwilling to lose their super-weapons. I suspect soon it will be impossible to reach the prestige button. I was hoping that the adjustment would give it a vulnerability,  or reduce it's freeze time, but instead they removed it's only true weakness and in doing so could have lost many players too frustrated to continue.

Well done.

I just prestiged and only met one enemy with tranq gun. I don't see a problem with pretige yet. If there is a problem currently then it's more in Gang Fights, sometimes you have enemy with tranq gun and then in most cases it is game over unless you reset or build high health car that can withstand enemy attacks while you are tranquilized and sometimes you can do that. Thankfully tranquilizers in Gang Fights are not that often seen.

So instead of nerfing these things they get handed out at random.  For the first time today I had to gem my first gangfight opponent. What do they get replaced with? An opponent with 4 tranquilliser guns!

Between these guns and the terrible  matchmaker and late packet bug in city kings the game has turned quite unenjoyable.

WAY TO WRECK THE GAME ZEPTO !

(For those that haven't come across it yet, the late packet bug causes the enemy health indicator to not work. If you win the battle the pop up will say you've won, but when you get back to the car park YOU'RE the one who blows up and your opponent stays intact...and the win is not scored. Happens frequently to those on a satellite connection with very high ping times)

You got very bad luck with random enemy, it seems. But 1st cars in gangfights usually are very weak unless you are at last level before prestige and your 3 car setup is off balance.

4 tranq guns or more could be won in the recent Grand Prix tour while completing levels so it is no surprise where they come from but I don't like too that they have kept tranq guns in gang fights seemingly forever even after events are long over. It's worth noting also that more or less enemy cars in gang fights are not always real players but sometimes bot generated cars with impossibly high attack and health levels if you got bad luck.

Packet bug seems bad one but it is somehow understandable if it is due to connection loss and game thinks you quit the fight, it should be fixed though same way they fixed the Ultimate Fights bug when game crashed at the middle of the fight resulted in lost fight, now it resumes the fight.

Seems to be the new normal.  today's 1st gangfight  had 2 purple guns, so I gemmed that opponent. After winning the easy gem the next opponent  also had 2 purple guns.

So... my contribution to the gang is a whopping 5 points.

(And no... I'm not on level 25...I'm still blue)

Shame this forum system  doesn't have polling. I would put the question "should the tranquilliser be nerfed?"

Even the gang members WITH purples have said yes.
