    lack of sniper nerfs in the update 2.6 complaints start here , please post your story with a hashtag #nerf_sniper_nubgun_2.7 so we can sympathize with each other without getting noticed
    i for my self will start with my story
    im a humble mk4 speeder and when a sniper crits on me it deals 600-1000 damage , thats around a third to more than a half of my HP , not to mention the weapon is a 1 slot 40+ range weapon so go figure , the additional crit damage is pointless , you either pick the high risk high reward blast or the low risk average reward sniper , not get to pick the low risk absurdly high reward sniper

    Sniper Bay.
    Great range with great Crit Chance and great Crit Damage.
    As a mid-3,000 Fixer, it’s not safe. I turn my back for a second and my fellow Shooter loses more damage from two shots than with any other far range weapon.

    Any weapons the devs use is 100% safe from any nerfs. Anything else is open season.

    Sure, because all of the devs use only snipers and no one has ever used any of the nerfed items :rolleyes:

    Sniper crit chance should have been the only thing nerfed, MAYBE firebomb duration when the outer ring hits.

    The game is even more unbalanced and my frost launcher is useless, it gets broken before a mortar can even land.
    Game is losing my interest

    First minute of the game *dead*

    Why? Hit by 3 sniper crits. Unpredictable.

    if they cannot adapt to a change that makes the game fair for everyone , then there is no need for them to play the game imho

    yeah im sorry im talking about the chance , not the damage , an easily obtained 30% is totally ridiculous , totally op weapon and needs to be nerfed in the chance aspect

    It's actually a running joke in the office before we launch a new update "WAIT! have we nerfed any of Zeus's items??". Stemming from the fact that i think every balance update we made, something i used got nerfed, so i'm afraid your argument doesn't quite hold true ;)

    Every yellow item got nerfed(tesla bolt was a bug fix, but still worked as a nerf) except nitro. Now I'm waiting to see shooters complaining that nitro is being used like an overboost, and is overpowered just because it has not been nerfed.
    #Shooter logic ftw

    Seeing at my track record only thing that I am using didn't get nerf is Big Shield Turbo and Nitro.
    And yes I forgot Sniper 7% damage nerf when I got my first every epic weapon. Just used it for a week and Baaaam.

    Dont agree with sniper nerf. If you bring down the crit change, you can better delete the sniper because then its the same as a Cannon with long reload time. Sniper isnt that good if it not crits. Besides if you get hit 3 times in the beginning of the game by sniper maybe you need to learn to hide.

    Best for sniper:
    - 2 slot weapon
    - only 3 perks for all sniper
    - delete the fire boost talents from bhurt

    I only agree with no. 1, beyond that all that's needed is a cap for the crit chance, maybe 20%

    Remove the sniper's addtional crit damage to 0%, and buff base damage a little to compensate. Right now there are two +25% bigger crit damage talents, replace them with +5% to sniper base damage. This will reduce the reliance of snipers on crits, and at the same time reduce overall damage output without having players throw it into the rubbish bin.

    PS: I use a sniper too
