So, this should be the last week of the BBB, and I’m wondering what you all thought of it. Was this an overall buff, nerf, stayed the same? We’re the underperforming weapons/classes brought up to par? Did we find out who cousin okri is? Will we ever find who keeps stealing those brushes?
I think the beta was actually overall really healthy for the game. So many weapons are really viable now, and some underperforming weapons are now at least viable.
In terms of classes, I believe handmaiden benefited the most since she was in a good spot already, and the changes really brought up some underused talents in line, and she’s a great medic now. The nerfs to shade and mercenary were fair. Bounty hunter unfortunately didn’t create a new meta or anything else since crossbow feels like it’s still the best. Brace of pistols is a little more viable though, but it was viable before. Huntsman changes were good, but still a bit lacking on ammo Regen. Bardin changes were strange, and I don’t think they made any important changes, but ranger vet melee is more viable (not that it was really that important to make viable). Unchained got a band aid fix for a broken system in my honest opinion.
Overall, I believe this was actually a net buff considering so many weapons were changed, and any weapon can be run on cata without seriously questioning your sanity. Falchion especially is good now with these buffs.
Will we see all these changes further improved? Will more careers be nerfed? Will we ever meet cousin Okri? Found out next time on Vermintide 2: beta 2: electric boogaloo.
