I think their first Nerf attempt was good but not in the right place. They made shotguns less godly and the bee less appealing as "One Shield to rule then all." The only remaining issue is being in a multiplayer still negates a lot of the negatives. Being in a group makes it a lot harder for you to take a hit while still murdering everything with an absurd damage boost. The bee Nerf really won't effect people dropping into random games stealing all the kills.
Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
