I since the update and introduction of the new hunters and the Behemoth i have had a lot of fun playing all the new characters, particularly Behemoth and Sunny the support. All the new characters are fun and unique in their own way, they are good, but the hunters are “too” good, sunny and Torvald especially.
I realise the crux of sunny is her mininuke grenade launcher, and its claim to be the most powerful single shot weapon in the game, but its too powerful, i also know the support i supposed to provide back-up firepower for the assault, but sunny’s 'nade launcher is rediculous. also, sunny’s Shield generator has way too much range on it, i get that its easy enough to destroy, but given the rate at which she can just “pop them out” that also, is rediculous. I dont think its unreasonable to say that the range on the shield generators need to be “halved”. and her launcher to have either “double” the reload time or about a 30% reduction in its damage.
Moving on to torvald. He is a great assault, but again, too great. But im not picking on his mortars, i actually think they are spot on, given the A) luck or B) skill needed to get decent effectiveness out of them, there is nothing more satisfying than melting a monsters armour by hitting it with a full barrage or mortars. No, what makes torvald OP is his shotgun. I honestly feel like this thing puts out more dps than Parnell while under the effect of his super-soldier ability. it simply needs a straight up damage reduction, of what… lets say… 30-40%? yeah, those a big numbers, but thats the point.
but wait, theres more, thought not as urgent, i’d still like to throw a few more things in:
- damage reduction on all Teir 4 pistols when downed, they do almost as much damage as maggie’s MP
- Slight damage reduction for Slim’s leech gun and Crow’s Longrifle (rapid fire rounds)
- and to be honest, maybe even a slight (slight) increase in heals from Slim’s heal burst.
- and back to crow again, a buff to either increase the hitbox of the charged stasis gun rounds or faster projectile speed
ive also found that Gobi, on occasion, wont pick up the monster and that Slim’s healing drone, although deployed and following a fellow hunter, will not actually heal. just some minor bugs i have experienced.
im not saying i havent enjoyed playing with and against the new characters, i love playing sunny and effortlessly slaughtering the monster, but its no fun if every game is easy as p*ss, and im sure the monsters i have played against would agree.
