do they have more amp damage though? if it takes away 1 point and has a fast recharge all it does is give teammates without it a fair chance to do damage that's worth anything.


It has a fast recharge but a long delay.

So you would get one good shot, then have to wait to recharge with an extremely low capacity.

The shield would be useless.


Make amp drain -1.

Cut recharge delay to 5%( ~0.25 seconds ).
Cut recharge rate to ~20-40%.

WOW I JUST BALANCED IT.

Hold applause plz.

I am not really all that concerned that the bee is being nerfed, I don't use it that often anyway.

My only concern is the reason why it is being nerfed.

The bee and the cc (which I don't even have one of atm) were both released by Gearbox, and as such, behave as intended, or at least how they were intended at the time the game was made/released.

The only reason the bee is even on Gearbox's radar right now, is due to all the complaints of people that don't like other players using it to their advantage.


It's totally plausible (if not highly likely) that Gearbox simply hadn't foreseen that weapon combination put to the use it has been. Exhaustively testing every weapon combination, even discouting permutations from the RNG, is pretty much impossible. This is how I see the events at hand:

"Hey, Gearbox, this shield is absolutely insane with shotguns. Fix it!"

"Huh? We'll take a look at it."

"Oh man, yeah... this is SO getting fixed."

A cynic might see it as gearbox caving into fan pressure, but that's simply an interpretation (and one that runs afoul of what we've actually heard from Gearbox, whatever paper-thin validation thats worth), just like mine.

It's pathetic that you make such demands to "fix" someone's game. The "just patch it" era is going to kill gaming eventually. Whatever happened to just accepting a game for what it was? Have really stooped this low that we demand a developer "fix" their game to our liking?


DLC happened. As it stands, The Bee is so incredibly overpowered that future DLC (in terms of loot, which is the main draw of the game) isn't worth playing. That is a problem, no?

Once again why does everyone act like gearbox has never nerfed or buffed anything before in the borderlands franchise?

Do whatever the hell they want to The Bee.

Just don't **** with my Hide of Terramorphous. That's my favorite shield. Sure, I don't get ludicrous amp damage forever with it, but I like having Spike + Nova and Roid damage when it depletes.
