    Do rigs affect pvp?

    I could have posted this in the pvp section, but it may also involve the Alcatraz release:

    A couple of us played Shadow Wars last night and we both had encounters where we could see the opponent's shield charging as we were hitting them.

    I hit one guy four times with a rocket launcher and his shield just fluctuated a bit, then charged right up. We could not down these people and died horribly.

    My friend had a similar encounter.

    Something tells me it wasn't hacking, but it definitely didn't seem normal...

    Is this an exploit, or an unknown side-effect of a combination of rig, gear and perks? Do rigs even work in pvp?

    Any opinions?

    I've heard of exploits like this before. Doesn't sound rig related tbh, they aren't that OP

    no i doubt it too, rigs are a nice little bonus, but really affect things very minor

    its some kind of glitch/ hack . this is the why i see it. it takes 1 to 2 boomer nods to kill myself with my own boomer.6000ego. in pvp on some players it cant take up 5 or more nods to try to kill them and they turn around and one shot u. whats the deal . and its the same people over and over again.

    Yeah, heard of this glitch - never found out the details, though.

    Very annoying - I'm bad enough at pvp without being made to look worse! :P

    Precise chaos - seems to be a good all-rounder for pvp.

    Huh, then it couldn't have been what I was thinking. Theres a glitch with RAD RLS and the Guardian, where you can trigger it to reject all rad explosive dmg

    definitely the exploit going around, rig shield boosts are minor, almost so that its a waste of chip space.

    If it's the same exploit that was going around in PVP a few months back, it was definitely an exploit (and an intentional one) as it takes advantage of two game bugs, one of which is with the Firewall synergy. Take names, PM to devs.
