Should they nerf The Bee?

There are a lot of things they could do to keep the shield at legendary status:

-Distribute shotgun damage across pellets. Keeps it at the very top of the orange shields, but still far more acceptable. Obviously keeps with the Bee Muhammad Ali theme, which is important.


Would this affect the number of bullets left in a tediore gun when it is thrown (assuming the bee amplifies the same amount of damage for each bullet left in the gun when thrown)?

Though it would likely make it better (seem less overpowered) if the damage was spread across the number of pellets/bullets


Hmm... I haven't really toyed with conventional Tediore reloads much since getting the shield and my Deliverance, but I would assume sane behavior not to multiply the number of bullets left in the magazine by the amp damage.


If it does amp each of the bullets left in the weapon........ gah.... imagine the damage one of the tediore guns that has a massive clip size can do....

2. This article stats gearbox encourages modding.

They're talking about PC players creating additional content for the game.

Also, this has absolutely nothing to do with this topic at all even in the slightest.

thing is, the bee is THAT good that it makes every other shield pretty much obsolete, thus limiting the variety to a single shield.

it should either get a huge amp boost-nerf, changed to affect shots rather then bullets or drain 1 shield, but get a lower delay in return.

single player game or co-op only game doesn't matter, it's broken and needs to be fixed

Find it ironic that the ones who think the game should remain unchanged are the ones who are throwing out childish insults.

P.funny.

I am assuming the original idea was for it to completely deplete your shield on the first shot.

That being said, it is fun having super over powered crap for some people. I like a bit of a challenge but some people like a stupidly easy god like experience where they can take down huge bosses blindfolded.

I assume this is mainly an issue in multiplayer if some players are using overpowered equipment while other players want huge epic boss fight or at least some sort of a challenge. If that is the case then BL2 players need to come up with some online etiquette and stick to it.

^God tier items are one thing, but when planning for extension (DLC that will likely raise the level cap), future proofing an item to be better than anything that isn't the same item with better parameters is a big no-no.

To be fair there are those people on both sides, that's just the GFaqs effect.

The majority of posts though have been one side saying why The Bee deserves changes, and the other being people blaming whiners/babies and saying "It doesn't affect your game so it's balanced!" :\

To be fair, and while I plainly agree The Bee is way too overpowered, you aren't exactly in an objective, neutral position to be making these kinds of claims.
