    Borderlands 2 - Nerfing of the Bee

    As it turns out, many of us thought that the Bee was going to be nerfed. Then the DLC came out and we were happy to see that the Bee was not nerfed...we were wrong.

    The damage which the Bee applies has been moved and removed from the beginning of the damage stack and placed at the end. It does not benefit from critical bonuses or from things like the "Anarchy" stacks. If it did, a Conference Call would be netting close to half a million damage from a bounced bullet at only 300 stacks (Half of current potential).



    This has not entirely fixed the game, as Terra and The Warrior still got slaughtered by my 300 stacked Conference Call Bee combo in a matter of seconds, but it has defiantly prevented something we would have really enjoyed taking advantage of. Seven pellets shooting around the map, bouncing, doing a minimum of half a million damage? Would have been great.

    Sadly now the Bee applies it's 52k damage at the end of the damage stack, after everything is calculated.

    For those wondering about how the damage work out would have been:

    Conference Call - 5,400 Damage
    The Bee - 52,000 Damage
    Total - 57 - 58,000
    Multiplied by 1.75% per stack, times 600 stacks = 1050%
    Damage turns out to be around 609,000 damage per pellet.

    I agree that it does make the bosses easily farmable, but if it wasn't the Bee it'd be something else, don't think the Bee is the only mega damage in the game. ;)

    So basically, let me get this straight, we still get the 52k damage? but then every hit increases the stack which means we get even more damage? so basically instead of nerfing it they increased the total up end damage? just lolz.

    Yeah have fun with your bees and your conference calls. I find it extremely annoying when someone busts into the boss room and sends bullets flying all over the goddamn place with their conference call, then ten seconds later or less the boss is dead. At that point if I'm the host I kick them. Seriously, I have no idea how that could be fun in any way. I create most of my guns, most of them are black but I lower them to level 30-40 so they're balanced and i actually have to aim and empty a clip or two into most enemies. I can only hope that the bee/cc combo gets nerfed cause i'm getting tired of kicking everyone who exploits it. It makes the game not fun for anyone else who's not using it. Just sayin.

    I'm confused, so are they nerfing it even more once the patch goes live, or are you using data from the PC version, which already has the patch?

    Well, at least it'll reduce the number of people that constantly use it online. It's kinda boring when everyone in your party uses it. I use it only to kill bosses quickly, and that's it. If I wanted to, I would gladly switch to my Evolution and still own the bosses with no problem.
