Remember my balancing council idea? Let’s just do that right now. Why not? We’re a tight knit community here, and most of us know a lot more about the weaponry and meta than most PF players. So let’s sit down and have a discussion about it. Let’s come together as a community and have an actual discussion on what weapons need to be changed or nerfed or buffed or whatever. I’ll just lead in the conversation myself.
@Darkman_Bree @SVGSig @Skillzz @Mage9715 @heckgod @Guy_with_no_name obligatory ping for everyone who might be remotely interested in discussing balancing. Also no flame wars please. It’s ironic coming from me, but whatever, this is the last place we need it. And Darkman no memeing about the FAL.
Anyways let’s get this out of the way with me starting the conversation. Let’s talk about the really overpowered aspects of the game. There’s a few to list off and I’ll do so briefly.
FAL 50.00: It’s the best primary in the game right now, hands down. I think the thing keeping it this busted is its 3sk to the torso at longer ranges. My personal belief is that we should trade that out for another advantage.
M1911: I think we all know exactly why this needs a nerf. It has vastly overcentralized the pistol meta, and is one of the best guns in the entire game. Not sure how to go about nerfing it though.
Armor Piercing: We have an entire thread dedicated to this, so we shouldn’t get too in depth about the discussion. But you all know why it’s broken. Overcentralizes the meta and breaks guns, you know how it is. A lot of super broken guns are made super broken by AP. We fix AP, we fix them.
BFG .50: Still just the worst, even after the buffs. It still needs buffs.
Yeah those are just the big ones. So let’s get talking. Anyone have any proposals on balancing, put em in the comments.
