Iron bear nerfed

My Iron bear spend skill points for
“specialist bear1/1””Scorching RPM’s5/5””Desperate Measures 3/3”
Corrosive Sabot Round
vs Jack’s face
pre 12/20. 14k+71k dmg
Post 12/20. 13k+66k dmg
Nerfed around 8%.
So WHY nerfed?
Has not been described patch note 12/20.

Desperate measures is based on your health…I’m assuming Bear DM is based on Bear Health…so your numbers will move based on how much health remains in Bear.

When they fixed DM to apply to both guns, they also changed where DM fits in the damage formula.

Pre 12/20 DM was a multiplicative boost to scorching rpm’s. Now post 12/20 the 2 bonuses are additive.

This has the effect of lowering Iron Bears damage a bit when both Scorching RPM’s and Desperate Measures are specced.

It’s based off of Mozes health no ?

Yes, Desperate Measures(even for IB) is based off Moze’s health.
