"Fixed bug causing Tediore reloads to get Amplify shield damage bonuses for each round remaining in the clip.
Amplify damage from Amplify Shields is now divided among all projectiles fired from a single shot.
Balance adjustments to "The Bee":

Increased Recharge Delay
Significantly increased Recharge Rate
Reduced Amplify damage

Sounds great. The bee needs to be put in it's place as a high risk/high reward shield instead the one above all others. It's fine in single player but in multiplayer games it really altered my experience. Now if only they could nerf dupers lol.

Having said that I'm still going to use my Bee+Guarded Warder combo. I love that thing

i thought it was fine. if you got hit you lost the extra damage anyway. if they are going to fix it like that then they need to increase the capacity.

All they need to do now is fix Terramorphous drops and correctly adjust Hyperius's HP and we got ourselves a game.

Terramorphous is getting more Health as well. PC players are having some trouble farming him with CC+Bee solo apparently.

In those patch notes they also mention they are fixing an "exploit" with Fleshstick power leveling.

First they complain about Dark Souls being too hard, now this? Hahahaha

to be honest... all they need to do is increase the level cap to 60.

this would get rid of the current set of Bees, allowing for the level 60 bee to have a low capacity and higher AMP.

Allowing for people to actually play the game that they want to... not being forced into playing the game all the same way.

Since I got the Bee... I haven't stopped using it. this is mainly because the game is impossible solo, once you hit 2.5, and I did that on my second week with the game.

from then on, I don't see how I could even attempt to play the game without the shield, nor how anyone else could.

If the developers had the game for months, and didn't know about the potential, why do they bother effing up a perfectly good game now, by balancing out the only useful weapons in the game.

I feel a sense of Deja Vu, which ultimately convinced me to stop playing every single Rainbow six game, after they "BALANCED" the game.

I don't mind the Bee changes, but they don't accomplish much in terms of farming Warrior or Teramorphous.

The only thing it does is make it take longer to kill them, not really any more difficult.

While I don't really think the damage needed to be nerfed, the amp damage being applied to every pellet from shotguns was obviously broken and not working as intended. Anyone who defends the fix is what's wrong with video games.
