Right now, if friendlies OR enemies are using it in an area it often means I just have to leave and find another fight. Switching to HS/NV is a pain in the first place, but on my settings the scope is worthless and I can't see practically anything with it in most environments. I don't think the solution is removing smoke, but right now it's not a quick, tactical thing to provide cover but rather a spam thing where a group decides to sit on ammo packs putting it everywhere while using HS/NV to basically remove anyone without an HS/NV from the fight. It seems like it creates stupid gameplay rather than tactical gameplay. Maybe I'm biased due to my HS/NV being worthless but I don't think smoke spam in area should even mean everyone is just forced to swap to HS/NV in the first place. I feel smoke should be a short lived thing serving more specific purposes, rather than almost blinding everyone not running a specific scope in a large area indefinitely - as long as a few players are sitting on packs spamming smoke the area is just a death trap for those w/out HS/NV.
