I hadn’t played a shotty in a few months (been trying other classes and completing all those Legend runs with every career), but when I tried the grudgeraker today it felt so…weak.
I can’t tell if it’s the spread (seems way harsher than before, the pellets seem to hit well outside the crosshair, even at point-blank range and with the spread talent) or if something else has changed, but I used to be able to one-shot pretty much anything up to maulers (except packrats), and now I really have to be point-blank to hope to kill a Storm Vermin.
Weird thing is, I’m not the only one who has noticed, some of my friends feel it’s different too, and I found a few discussions about that same topic on the Steam Forums: https://steamcommunity.com/app/552500/discussions/0/3203652426723528057/
Apparently Kruber’s shotty is affected too.
I can’t find anything in the last patch notes, so am I goign crazy? Is this an unintended bug, an unanniunced nerf, or is it just me?
PS: I have run a few tests,here is the current spread on 85 FoV, both with and without the Corsshair fix mod:
