Flak Jacket has been nerfed

During pre-season, many players saw Flak Jacket as extremely overpowered as it allowed players to resist a War Machine and even a launcher at close-quarters.

Patch 1.08 has reduced the effectiveness of Flak Jacket.

It isn’t just Flak Jacket that has received changes. Ninja is no longer resistant to the Field Mic Field Upgrade while Spycraft now provides resistance to the Field Upgrade.
