Star Wars Battlefront Update Includes Some Long-Needed Weapon Nerfs

"If you’re a lower-level Star Wars Battlefront player, or simply don’t like the annoyingly popular DL-44, you’re in luck. In the most recent update to DICE’s shooter from a galaxy far, far away, the game’s best weapon has been nerfed."

Glad they are re-balancing the guns, but they shouldn't have nerfed the heroes. The heroes were supposed to be powerful and difficult to kill. That's what makes the special to play.

Yes I love being killed back to back to back to back, whenever one of the players on the other side spams luke or vader during a match.

The dl 44 is deadly but absolute crap at far med-long range.

Maybe if your lucky he will kill a couple of guys away from you so you can get a few shots in or a td if your lucky.

One on one it is a death sentence going against any hero, especially the force users.

I switch to the auto pistol better at close range for me.

One on One with a hero should always be a death sentence. If it wasn't then there would be no point in playing the hero.

And if you're dying back to back from them, try a different strategy.

Well in walker assault you kinda have to try to control the uplinks. So good luck on endor or the sandcrawler map.

There is a point to playing the heroes, it is the same as staying in at-at's or aircraft the entire time racking up kills.

That is who I am referring to.

And yet they didn't touch the Pulse Cannon and A-Wing.

Still a crappy game deserves to be in the garbage.

DICE is really screwing up this game. Weakening the hero star ships, Boba Fett (again), the DL-44 (yet again), the bowcaster and a ton of other features completely changes the dynamics of the game, yet the pulse cannon and A-wing remain untweaked, like PaulKersey said above me.

The game is being tailored to the loud minority, not the silent and quiet majority. The former, wanting a CoD clone while the latter were just fine with the original product.

All these "updates" and tweaks are destroying a great game. Change isn't always a good thing.
