    Backstab chaining w/ hornet ring Empty Backstab chaining w/ hornet ring

    This mainly concerns forest pvp.

    I am not a regular user of the hornet ring but recently I have implemented it on one or two forest hunter builds and it has struck me that chain bsing seems a lot harder when using it.

    Without the hornet ring I can chain bs most opponents very easily if I need to but I've really found it tricky with these latest couple of builds to the point where I wouldn't consider using the hornet ring again. I assume this has something to do with the different animations for hornet and non-hornet backstabs or is it the game's way of trying to prevent hornet spamming?

    Given the proliferation of hackers on all systems chaining bsing and kicking them is quite a good way to troll them and waste their time and even get them to fall to their death if you're lucky.

    Can anyone shed some more light on this?

    The only thing I can think of is that your foe gets kicked out farther after a HR so that certainly changes the follow-up attack equation.

    Hornet Ring kicks them further away, so it's a little harder to go and get behind them again.

    I don't think it's to prevent Hornet Ring chain BS abuse, as I don't think FROM intentionally put chain BS's in the game, they're just a byproduct of latency and less than stellar netcode.


    Other than that there's not much more I can say, I never bothered with chain backstabbing people as I don't like it done to me and I think it's a pretty sh**ty way to fight, so I don't use it.

    Treat others as you wish to be treated and all that.

    It's not something I would do in a duel but in the forest it's a fine tactic.

    Thanks for your input btw, it makes much more sense now.
