Grenades are severely limited unless you spec into them, and it's only builds like Axton's that let you do tons of damage. Generally for Axton's grenade rape build, you need a rare grenade mod, a really good class Grenadier mod, correctly built, and the grenade buffing relic. An explosives shield also helps.

The problem with The Bee is the only requirement is needing The Bee and a strong ass shotgun, and that just doesn't seem right at all :/


No doubt it's more limited than The Bee. However, it still undermines the whole idea of Terra being a boss which isn't suppose to be done quickly by one person. And nothing is stopping people from having a grenadier build and jumping into co-op games and blowing up everything by throwing grenades everywhere. Which can even be seen as more overpowered than The Bee in situations where you are fighting non-boss enemies.

It's probably because I'm somewhat of a paranoid person...But once stuff starts getting nerfed, I start worrying a little over whether something else that can also be seen as overpowered is going to get nerfed as well.

Well, I frequently use The Bee (inb4hypocrite) and against minor enemies, I don't have much of a problem. Of course though, that's just my opinion.

The community has discovered a ton of tech in the 3 weeks this game has been out though, even a raid boss that isn't in the game, and the LotR easter egg. If there was any more broken tech, such as The Bee, I'm sure it would of been found by now, and after using most of the equipment, I can say the only problematic item towards balance is The Bee itself.

I also doubt that Gearbox would nerf something JUST by the word of the community, and not having their own judgement be put into play. If that were the case though, I could fairly say they're really bad developers. But that isn't the case, and if The Bee shield wasn't as problematic as it is, and all these "whiners" were just "whining" for the sake of needing a side with their cheese, than this topic wouldn't of escalated to 482 posts.

^I know! Gearbox should just shut up and give me a 99999 damage smg with 99.9 accuracy, 30.0 fire rate, and a 300 round clip and instant reload with regenerating ammo! After all, that's the way I want to play!

This. Scumbag Gearbox not letting me have fun.


Fun is subjective. You can be condescending about it all you like, but it is not your place to tell people whether or not the way they have fun is any better or worse than your own. People found a part of the original game that they find to be fun, and instead of just avoiding these players people like you would rather b**** and moan about it. Grow up.

Because only children complain. Guess that makes you a child too. See the problem in that?

Gearbox wants to change it, gearbox wants to change it, go ***** to them that you want to kill everything in a few shots.

If you actually had the cognitive ability to comprehend the things you read, you'd see that I'm not *****ing. I can sympathize with both sides, I agree that the Bee/CC combo is OP, but at the same time I think it is pointless to nerf it as it's not a detriment to those that don't want to use it. IIRC, I also said that I don't even actively use the combo. Also, I didn't say that only children complain. However, I think that your "my way is the only way to have fun" is what is childish. I reiterate: Grow up.

I'm not sure you know what whining means. If the CC/Bee get nerfed, I'll continue to enjoy the game just fine. I just think it is rather stupid to change the game because whiners can't handle other people having a good time their own way, considering this way does not impede upon others. I agree with the idea, I disagree with the means is all. But, I digress.

Then there's absolutely 0 reason for you to be posting in a thread discussing said nerfs. You're here to start fights like, how your kind would word it, a child.

Only children can grow up, you only said grow up because people are complaining, ergo only children complain else why say grow up? Failing to see that shows a lack of "cognitive ability" on your end. And you saying that is complaining, whether you think so or not.

I'm not reading every post in this thread, so I may have missed you saying that, but just because the game is co-op doesn't mean balancing shouldn't exist.

And I never said that, I honestly don't care about what happens with the shield, but that doesn't mean I can't support the nerfing.
