Wow...I'm a little shocked Epic choose to do that just because of whining ass noobs who can defend themselves against the sawed-off. Phuck it...just as long as they don't "tweak" anything else, I'm good. I like the sawed-off but love the Gnasher even more.

the SOS is a cheap weapon. didn't the the countless threads on the epic forums and constant complaints across the internet tip you off?

StanLee2567d ago

I don't think they nerfed the damage, just reduced the spread which was the biggest problem.

i hate the shot guns, i just cant deal with the slow firing weapons, gimme the lancer any day, if i have to get in that close for a shot then i may as well saw em in half.

If you look at the stats, it doesn't appear the complaint are justified. I think it is just gnasher users finally getting some competition....

It's not "competition", it's a bullshit weapon. It's really evident in King of the Hill. If the entire team has the sawed off, it's nearly impossible to counter the circle. Nothing is more frustrating then killing people in awesome 1v1 gnasher battles then some moron rolls into the cirlce, blindfires the SOS, and runs halfway across the map while they reload. I still finish MVP of the game, but it's still just a non-skilled, noob weapon.

My buddy has been newer to Gears since Gears 2 launched. He really treid to use the gnasher in Gears 3 beta, but everytime he gets frustrated with the gnasher he switches to the SOS. He finsihes with more kills.

Gears is a game about skill. You have to be better than your opponent to win those 1v1 gnasher battles. With the SOS, the skill is removed.

Who gives a f**k? I don't use it and i'm not whining when someone kills me with it.

Winkle922567d ago

Woohoo!!! Awesome news!

TheColbertinator2567d ago

They nerfed the Retro Lancer and we always kicked the ass of those shoddy chumps in the demo.

SOS and Gansher need huge nerfs
