Surprisingly, even with the release of Borderlands 2 last week, Operation PATRIOT was a success. Look for your Victory and Commendation Packs later today!
Though the Multiplayer Balance Changes for this week haven’t been confirmed yet, the preview says:
– Clip size decreased from 8 to 6
– Encumbrance increased from [1.0-0.5] to [1.2-0.7]
Update: Wow, lots of changes this week! For a full list, click here.
As expected, the Piranha got a clip size decrease. I just tried playing with the nerfed Piranha and while it is still a good gun, it’s not a killing machine anymore, unfortunately. Better master the Reload Cancel skill if you want to keep being effective with the Piranha! :)
Another major change this week is that the Battlefield 3 Soldier is now an unlockable character (rare) in packs! This is great for people like me, who never bought Battlefield 3, but I suspect some people might be upset if they got the character as an “exclusive.”
Among other changes, about half the pistols got weight decreases, which is excellent. I may start using pistols again! I’m particularly excited about the Talon and the Paladin …
What do you think of the new balance changes? Let me know in comments!
