I saw somebody talking about farming, and some guy had offered to help, and some random posted about how they ruins the game and what not. Idk, not a fact, just an observation i guess.


Are you sure they weren't talking about duping ... or perhaps the guy was making a joke about duping ... I'm pretty sure you mean duping.


maybe man, I thought they were tlaking about farming specifically, but it duping is just slang for duplication, i could understand slightly more, that seems little lame.

But just in general, I really hope they don't nerff this shield man. I understand that once you start using CC with it, you can kill things like Terramorphus in seconds, but still. with the dlc im hoping they add some better bees, hopefully a little higher capacity.

Because it makes content for the game impossible to balance, since people with the bee can kill bosses meant to be difficult for players without the bee before they attack.

They are nerfing The Bee though.

@AddyJohn_V Bee shield is so getting nerfed.

@hugh112176 relax - you don't even know how/when nerd will happen. The upside will not be nerfed. The downside is broken. Also, shottys...

When I go into some boss fights, it just isn't fun watching some guy just 1 shot them with a shotgun. I want to have some fun, a little toughness. I was having a problem with Bunker, so I went on Live to find a group to try to beat him, Somebody practically 1 shot Bunker with a sniper rifle, and the fight was over without any struggle. That just isn't fun.


Actually that's a glitch with that boss. If you hit him just right while using Zero, you pretty much drop all his health.

not following that second tweet, sorry man.

but they are nerfing it?? and if they are, are they nerfing the ones that people having in their inventories, orrrr like, the ones that will drop in the future??

I assume all Bees will be nerfed with the patch.

As for the second tweet, he misspelled nerf, the benefits of the bee probably won't be affected by the nerf, while the downside has to be tweaked (most likely an increase to the downside).

Also the possibility of how the bee works with shotguns will be tweaked by the looks of it, most notability the combination Bee + Conference Call which can destroy bosses in seconds, making Terra and Verm a joke and potentially ruining future raid bosses.


Then again, we won't really know until it happens or they tell us how it'll happen.

yeah man, I agree. I just think it would be really sick if the ones that are out and being used now, are nerffed, that way they themselves become a rarity you know? but I guess if people dupe them it doesnt mean much, just hate to see mine lose its beastlyness

It's possible to kill Bunker in under a minute without the bee on TVHM.
You just need a sniper build zero with b0re and a good enough sniper with a built in +crit damage bonus.

You don't need the sniper rifle, in fact, it's easier with a shotty. You still need Bore, and it helps greatly to boost critical hit bonuses, but I was doing fine without the sniper. You can actually hear all the pellets ricocheting around inside the poor boy.
