they're not nerfing it , they're just bringing it back to its Beta recoil


I sure hope so, plus like i said before the only people complaining are the tryhards who slap accuracy on this baby

Would not mind if they removed accuracy from the gun at all, as I prefer gmal without(aaahhh Flyn's gmal) Would like them to address why the reticule behavior is so erratic after the recoil. 

 

I definitely agree with the recoil increase and the decrease AA, but just cannot agree with my point above.

3 things I want to say as I too love the g-mal, even before it became OP and after the nerf.

 

1: I agree in that the nerf was a slight overkill. They could have tested whether the aim-assist would have been enough to make the weapon balanced before going ahead with the recoil adjustment, it also contradicted the baby steps approach that ND had for balancing weapons.

It's now even worse to use in co-op (still useable but worse) which I thought wasn't taken into consideration when it came to the nerf as the G-MAL was very underpowered in those modes. Also as a G-MAL user I wanted the aim-assist to be nerfed because it was too sticky and at times made it annoying for me to aim my gun at enemies. Even in co-op. If the recoil wasn't affected and the aim-assist was reduced only and across all the scoped-in weapons, we could have seen more variety in weapons instead. However in this state because it's useable I can deal with it but it may need a tiny reduction because of the fact that it still needs to be considered a long ranged weapon as well.

 

2: I don't think the G-MAL is useless, it's still useable but only on some maps. The recoil probably wasn't needed but it didn't kill off the G-MAL effectively like how the Rate of Fire reduction killed off the FAL. Museum plays out perfectly with the G-MAL. Desert Village, I use an AK.

 

3: Because of the lack of G-MALs, there are more people using the M9 (especially with the RoF mod) so it's harder to fend off against other people. It's more to do with how the maps were laid out. I'm hoping that because more people are using the M9, especially with the RoF mod, that it will finally get the nerf it deserves.

 

I've said my piece. For TL : DR, recoil increase is a bit overkill, G-MAL is still useable though and there's an increase in M9s.

It's a combination of both. It's all over the place because there's little to no aim-assist which means your scope will not stick to a target properly plus the recoil makes it harder for the individual to focus on the target. If either or was included it wouldn't have been less traumatic but with both it makes the gun harder to use.

ND did it wrong, like always...now the Gmal suffers more in long range instead of close range fights.

That nerf doesnt make sense..period.

 

I and many others said it maaaany times, a 1HK damage nerf would have been the right move.

 

 

A multiplayer is supposed to feel the same as the game before it. You made that mistake with Uc3 but it was manageable. Now with Uc4 this is just ridiculous.

I don't even notice the difference. Then again I never used the G-mal. Seems absolutely fine when i use it.

 

You people complain too much.

Well I think that G-MAL is how it should be it's more closer to the G-MAL in the Beta. Smiley LOL

No its not. I'm pretty sure the beta G-mal had no stopping power and was more of a long range weapon. Since the nerf I'm better of using the Dragon Sniper when people are 30 feet away from me.
