I guess we are all aqcuinted with the cheese that is Javelin jumping around the corner and insta gibbing you. After a while of thinking and talking on Discord, I think there might be a solution to this whole mess without sacrificing the power that it has.
SO, instead of charging up for 1,5 seconds, I propose something else. After 0,5 seconds the missile would be flung out of the barrel, when it starts going down, the motor would kick in (it starts flying and leaving a trail). When the rocket has travelled more than x amount of meters (5-7 meters sounds good to me) the warhead arms and it can do damage. If the rocket touches something before those 5-7 meters it would be a dud and not explode.
What do you all think? Is this a viable solution? Do I swing the nerfhammer a tad too hard here or too gently? Please let me know down below!
