There’s a lot of cool new gear in the last few dlcs, but every since the ION CANNON I’m dreading the day that any of them are nerfed into the ground. IC getting nerfed isn’t bad in itself, rather, it got nerfed too hard. Same thing happened to Kaoson. Nerf ok, super nerf bad.
With that, why are we getting gear each time that is objectively better than what we had before, when it’s just going to be nerfed later?
Plasma Rifle is awesome, I love it, but not because of the power: it looks cool, feels cool, sounds cool and shoots fast, and is another welcome DOOM reference.
I don’t mind if it gets nerfed to make it balanced, but I fear that yet another cool gun is going to be over-nerfed.
In a game like this, I much prefer cool gimmicks and ideas than some kinda of meta build. This isn’t pvp, why nerf these guns later on, let alone make them so op in the first place if it is necessary to nerf them?
Note: I don’t mind balancing gear or nerfs in general, I’m objecting to power creep making old gear worse in comparison only to later get nerfed into obscurity.
