Rhino a bit too strong?

i feel like its pointless giving him weapons since most of the time he seems to have his minigun out and just shreds wherever you go especially when his whole team spawn camps you, even a full headshot from vassili doesn't do anything since he can just mow you down before you can get your second shot off

    Rhino has many counters. if you're close and were mowed to shreds by one with a minigun, he must've been having it spinning, there is an audible warning for that.
    his minigun overheats easily and he's quite slow if he's spooling it. Vasilli could headshot him from quite a distance, but Rhino's spread if he hasn't fired yet is quite tight. flanking or long range is the best approach.

    A good phantom or explosive merc can make his health station plan useless.

    If you are forced to get close to him then try to circle around him so its harder for him to shoot you.

    That's usually the kind of action that only works against a bad player. I would advise against that, unless you perfecty know the player in front of you. Against Rhino, better keep your distances, flank or attack around corners with grenades/stickies.

  • I would like to see Rhino with an assault rifle and a shotgun secondary, I think it would make him far more interesting, although the assault rifle would have to be like a weak Dreiss AR. maybe something with low dmg thats meant to pick off some health or kill a fleeing enemy.

    Rhino with any accurate long range gun would be busted. S&W is already my most used rhino weapon.

    Tbh the minigun is also pretty good if you learn to crouch tap fire. :wink:

    Reminder that it's always okay to vote kick a sniper, no matter how well they're doing.

    Rhino is fine, if not underpowered. You are forced to use a loadout with nitros and most of the time you shouldn't even use the minigun unless you surprised someone or sitting on a health station. He is only good in very few situations and still pretty easly dealt with. 200 hp with hit easy-to-hit head is really not that much.
    There is a reason you see way more fraggers, thunders and even naders instead of rhino in higher level play. He is great at killing players that are somewhat new to the game though.

    Nitros isnt that useful with a team. Just hold down right click for a sec, pop out a wall, and basically go hyperfire fel-ix vasilli on your enemies...

    except, all the enemies know you are coming already.

    Nitros still a must, even after the nerf

    He can be good defender with shield/aura station combo. Without teamwork or if there is enemy counters, I wouldnt pick him. He is underperforming in competetive tournaments, because team composition have usually strict and limited roles. I wouldnt increase his HP, but perhaps that minigun could have small range buff. M4/AK would be too good.
