The gun was on a Original N00B combo level of Overpoweredness. I'm glad it's finally getting a nerf. Now I'm worried about boltshot abusers being able to still leave enemies one shot and quickly finish their opponent off.

The gun still makes a suppressor useless and an AR/Storm rifle extremely risky for close range battles.

• Reduced the range of the Boltshot’s damage scaling over distance. The previous effective range for 1-hit kills was 20'-25'. The range has been reduced to 15'.
• Fixed an issue that did not allow players to create respawn timers or disable instant respawn in custom games.
• Fixed issues with friendly fire against vehicles. If FF is disabled, damage / EMPs from friendly sources will no longer damage vehicles that are fully controlled by your team.


I noticed the friendly fire fix in Spartan Ops. but the boltshot has been nerfed for the past few days? I haven't noticed a difference.

I play a good bit of Spartan Ops online (team damage off). Whenever people are douchebags in vehicles, mostly ghosts, a quick PP shot and 2 plasma nades later and they don't bother me after that because i took their toy away...

...so after the update now, there will be absolutely nothing stopping people from being total douchebags in vehicles because we will no longer be able to neutralize their douchebaggery.

GG, 343... you just killed Spartan Ops online.

343 has restored most of my faith. Now if they also disable Vehicle-to-player FF, I'll be even happier. It might make Matchmaking SpOps bearable.

After being killed repeatedly, 3 or 4 times in a row by a SR130 in a ghost who's totally ignoring objectives and is going after teammates for the lolz instead, i could honestly care less what other players think of my response at that point - i'm taking out the douchebag now and giving him a bad review after the match as well.

And again, if we can't neutralize douchebags in vehicles now, then guess what: You're only going to encounter more and more of them in the future because there's nothing stopping them from being douches.

So again, gg, 343... i have a feeling i won't be playing Spartan Ops online for much longer...
