      Nerfing is good when there’s no proper counter. The akimbo FMGs are obviously bullshit just as the akimbo G18s in MW2 were (and still are) bullshit. Secondary weapons shouldn’t be *better* than primaries and have 1,400 damage per second unless they are *wildly* inaccurate (which they aren’t). Similarly, the 95 should be a beast at long range, but to have it also very good in close quarters leaves it with no real downside.

    Hopefully the shotgun adjustment ushers in a buff to all shotguns in the coming weeks. They really, really need it.

    • Marty

      I agree, good shotguns, lmgs, etc. add a little more variety and excitement to the game.

  • Slurper122

    I hope they make it so you can pick up explosive ammo using Scavenger again. They aren’t really a problem without One Man Army, and I’m sick of placing a claymore and having it blown up by a teammate, and then having to wait till I die to get a new one. Same goes for C4

  • SaAlf

    Guilty Gear or is it Growlanser ?

  • Blazedcheech

    so the hip fire with the type 95 is worse than what it is already? shouldnt make it worse cuz it sucks already. 

  • Blazedcheech

    also they dnt need to worry about the weapons that much. need to worry about all the damn team killers that rocket the whole team in hc search and destroy

  • Blindfire

    type 95 nerf isnt a nerf at all they need to make it a 3 shot kill instead of a 2 shot kill for it to be a great gun instead of a OP gun

      shut up, virgin
