I have been farming Pete offline so I don't have to take the patch just yet. I know that after the patch the CC+Bee Shield combo is worthless, but I was just curious how the patch effects the Redundant Fibber+Bee that I have been using to fight Pete.. Here are the current stats:
Redundant Fibber DAM. 61932x2
Alkaline The Bee Cap. 19104 Rech Rate. 24693 Rech Del. 5.18 Amp Dam. +54900 Amp Shot Drain. 0
How much of a nerf does the Bee Shield take ??
"Critical killing is an art unto itself, and I am Rembrandt"
The Bee is still ridiculously broken. All it did was change what weapons made best use of it.
The biggest nerf to the bee isn't the stats, but how it handled amp on multiple pellets shot from guns. It used to be individual pellets got amped, now it divides the amp on all pellets.
It was a nerf to amp shields, it's just very few players put together that any half-decent amp shield with shotguns or Tediore reloads could obliterate everything in the game. The only thing the Bee did was eliminate the need to grab a shield regen skill (which everyone, except Salvador, has).
