Since mayhem 4 came out, I have absolutely refused to use short fuse. I hated building my way down just to get that single point and found a lot of hybrid, no capstone builds were very fun.
After these several weeks of having to struggle with our favorite lone surviving armored infantry pilot, the latest patch inspired me to give it another chance. And I have to say, I am very happy with the changes. In my experience before you couldn’t simply pick up any gun and have short fuse pull it up into viability. However, the DW tree seems to have really become so much better that I can pick up almost any gun and at least kill trash mobs with it.
I don’t know if it was like this before, but now I find myself experimenting with almost every gun again. I may be stuck with short fuse for a bit, even if I swap out the other trees or only do half in each.
Side note, the trees are so much better now, that I can even use Rocketeer with dakka bear periodically. Sure my teddy bear will kill himself sometimes, but it just works so well but it doesn’t hurt the gameplay too much if he dies. That’s not a short fuse comment, that’s just how much better the experiences overall.
Anyone else have similar experience?
