Balanced Landing height requirement

It seems a bit odd that players can hop off a very small incline and take off like a shot. Would it be possible to implement a minimum height required they have to drop from to activate it? If it already has it, it's not working well ha ha.

    Balanced Landing is not about height, is about having Balanced Landing, same we can say about Killers, however they dont need a perk to have it.

    If you are wasting a perk slot, it should be for something that works all the time.

    A "balanced landing" comes from dropping from a height where the landing would affect your movement. Dropping from something 6-8" high is not a "height", it's a curb you can step down off of.

    Second story window? Fine. 5 foot tall hill? Cool. stepping off the edge of an incline that is 6 inches tall and taking off like a shot? Eff' that. I like at least a LITTLE reality in my fantasy.

    I love how you can fall off the factory in ironworks and not break your legs

    I understand where you are coming from but adding a minimum height would only severely limit the perk's usability. On many maps, there is virtually no viable spots to use Balanced Landing apart from small drops on the basement stairs or some small rocks. Adding a height requirement would make it basically useless on:

    • Shelter Woods
    • Rotten Fields
    • Wreckers' Yard

    It already has this, you have to drop more than about 4 feet to activate it. We don't need to nerf a very well balanced perk.

    That's one of the things I miss about F13. Falling from a long way made you make some very tough decisions.

  • smappdoodasmappdooda Member Posts: 214

    I'm pretty sure I have seen people drop from less than 2 feet and take off sprinting.

    Honestly ANY fall shifts your balance. Balance is shifted when you're not standing straight, so even walking is a shift in balance. Balanced Landing makes sense as it is.

    No more odd than staggering after dropping a few inches. In my mind, since the perk is designed primarily to avoid staggering when hitting the ground after a drop, the height requirement for Balanced Landing should be the same as whatever the height requirement for the staggering is (although I'm not certain whether this is already the case or not).
