Funnily enough, I proceeded to get a single spectre pack and got a paladin upgrade...

Acolyte Pistol
- Reverting pistol to original state before the attempted rocket glitch fix since the change
did not curb the use of the glitch


Does this mean it's a charge weapon again? Cause that would suck :-(


Yup. Today's balance change should've said:
Acolyte damage modifiers on health and armor reduced to 25% / 25%

That way, the pistol that's only supposed to strip shields/barriers will only strip shields/barrier, instead of killing everything in sight. That would've been perfect.

Instead, they went and did something stupid, giving squishy casters a pistol that prevents them from taking cover, makes it awkward to cast/aim powers on the right bumper, and resets anytime they get stunned, in case the geth weren't trolling adepts hard enough as is. And then they sugar-coat it with a bunch of gifts and the much-wanted sabotage buff, (with a little nerf sprinkled in there too,) so no one will notice. Merry ****ing Christmas.

Bravo, Biower. Bravo. *applauds*


I've been saying they were gonna do this to the Acolyte for weeks, why did nobody believe me? There was literally no reason for them to keep it the way it was given their initial reason for the change was rendered null. <_<

**** the acolyte nerf. So glad I stopped using that gun in preparation for this. Just goes to show adepts can't have nice things.

Acolyte gains no damage on charge, it was a "feature" of the guns shield-beasting abilities

The problem with restraining speech is, who gets to set the rules? If it's only okay in a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

so much butt hurt about the acolyte, its still great, you just have to be smarter about how you use it.

I stopped using it weeks ago in anticipation for this, but I'm still mad they did it. Required charging is an incredibly stupid mechanic to have on any weapon, especially a caster weapon. It would've made much more sense to severely nerf it's damage to armor or health.
