Now back to our imminent doom.
Trion has announced their big patch package, v 1.020 "buckshot". See patch notes here:
While I'm excited by this, it's only because this is to be the last patch before the dlc. The patch is expansive and addresses a shit ton of issues, they have also begun the ride that will kill this game. Appeasement.
They will be significantly nerfing shotguns, and detonators, thanks to the PvP trolls. After reading the note twice it would appear that these two weapons will now shoot marshmallows, and are modded with a new "paperweight" synergy, especially in pve. To top it off, while these get nerfed, nothing is changed with infectors, cementing their soon to be title of " the reason people stopped playing pvp."
Now I will reserve final judgment for after the 4 hour server downtime, (actual projected time) and the 4 hour extension, and then the 5 hour patching client side.
In the good things category, freight yard will be back, for an hour or so, and dam defense will return as we'll.
Also new pvp mode seiges, will be released as we'll.

Shotguns have definitely been dialled back a fair bit, so my former build of running around with two shottys is going to have to be reviewed lol.
All in all it it's not TOO bad but there were a fair few guys running around with infectors in PVP, not everyone mind you. Even saw a few running with LMG's.
