“The removal of Waste Not, Want Not was a decision made based on testing and data. A vast majority of players ran Conservative Shooter as is on Huntsman so ammo regen should still be available”
- from the latest patchnotes
The Reason why everyone uses Conservative Shooter is not only because you need it for ammo sustain, but also because there IS HARDLY ANY CHOICE! Scrounger is basically the same Talent, with less reliable outcomes. Barrage is the only other reliable one, but running that now will make you run dry. Picking Hunter only does you any good, if you can guarantee a crit.
The choice should not have been to balance a whole ranged careers ammo sustain around a Trait and expect everyone to take it, but to add some interesting Traits and even alter the overused ones, so there isnt a no brainer trait in the first place.
The state Traits are in just sucks and those kinds of decisions dont make it one bit better. The whole “we are done with this beta” talk doesnt lighten up my mood, especially since traits actually being a choice is something that gets talked about a lot, during this beta and before that in the forum.
One can just hope we get another beta very very soon. When you just count on your playerbase to just take this one trait than there might be something wrong.
