How bad is the Bee nerf?

#1Robot2600Posted 11/14/2012 5:40:29 PM
If you are a Bee-hater just stay out, ok? Not interested in a discussion on the Bee's pros and cons. I liked the old Bee and I don't give a crap if anyone thought it was broken. Hows it work compared to how it used to work? Is it even slightly useful now or will everyone migrate to the sham?

Only a PC player can tell you right now. Its only nerfed on the PC right now as the PC is the only platform that has been patched thus far.

tell you what. you cant kill hyperious or terramorphous in less than 3 seconds anymore, you can use an infinity pistol well with the bee, but the sham might be better.

Thanks for the info. I guess it's not the end of the world. I'll post back later with how quickly I can kill Terramorphus on my Mechromancer

Main problem seems to be that the bonus is divided among the pellets now and Hyperious will simply be impossible without babymaker spam.

Are you on the PC version? If not the Bee will act as before. The patch is only out on the PC. Not the Xbox or PS3 version.

not yet

and seeing how much the PC players been complaining about it, i wonder if i'll see nothing but topic about the bee being too weak or the game being broken and how people will stop playing or wish for a refund on the console boards.

Yea I'm on PC, not sure how I wound up on the XBOX board, but it's all good I suppose.

Bee nerf sucks. Feel really unfair that the best shield in the game gets killed and multiple smaller glitches persist. Deathtrap heals enemies and blocks the player's path when he has a shield, Assassin mod is broken, Gunzerking explosive dmg continues to be way more OP than the bee, commando turrets stop people from sprinting but not while walking/running, the normal raid bosses are useless now....

What the Bee SHOULD have shown Gearbox was that the lvl 50 weapons in the game don't do enough damage.

Overall this patch is just a "F*** YOU" to the players, not a great moment for Gearbox.

idk if the bee was the best shield in the game, but i never depended on it, so the patch didn't do much to me, other than taking my backpack spaces away.
