Did they seriously just nerf brawler?

52 replies 463 views Edited Oct 15, 2013

**bleep**.

 

I have yet to play the new maps but I read this on ND's post, "The additional hit on modded melee weapons has been moved from Brawler Level 1 to Level 2, and the health gain from melee hits moved from Level 2 to 1."

 

So people that like melee are basically screwed. Brawler 2 gave people a chance against snipers and purchased weapons. No one even asked for them to nerf brawler.

They switched what Brawler 1 and 2 do. Having Brawler 2 hasn't changed anything, but you will no longer get an additional upgraded melee hit with Brawler 1. Brawler 2 is exactly the same, while Brawler 1 is just the health you got back from Brawler 2 originally.

 

Short Version: Brawler 1 is now Brawler 2 without the additional 1 hit melee, Brawler 2 is unchanged as a whole.


 

Keep it in 1 thread next time. Nothing has changed about Brawler 2.

You don't need brawler 2 to fight off snipers and purchasable weapons. Quite frankly, modded 2x4s require almost no skill to use, so I'm glad that Naughty Dog nerfed it.

Oh ok someone just cleared things up for me. 

 

This still isn't cool though. brawler 2 is basically usless in survivors mode now. No one ever mods a stick in survivors. I guess its cool to be able to just use brawler 1... 

 

I really don't like that. they made brawler so cheap that everyone will have it and it will no longer be of any use...

You can say the same about shiv+smoke and flamethrower. If someone comes at you with a flamethrower up close, there's only two things that can save you, Shotgun, modded stick. And I've been matches with highly skilled snipers that get headshots every time. I would just slowly cut our distance and then strike with a modded stick before they could even try to quick scope me.

It just means less ridiculous 2x4 kills which is fine. It isn't a big deal, really.

Its ridiculous. I really thought they were done nerfing perks. They should have nerfed corvert training then. Those dudes that use it just rush up to your second supply box and hide. You can't even hear out for them.

It really isn't a nerf. Being able to heal with melee is very useful in some situations, now you can do that with only 2 points instead of 3.

Its bittersweet. Because on one hand, it will be cheaper to use. On the other hand, a ton of people will now be using it since its so cheap. its like if they made covert training 2 worth only 2 points. that wouldn't make it a great perk anymore.

The big perk in brawler was the 2nd hit on modded weapons. Its a GOOD thing they switched them.
