I’ve been messing around with Huntsman since yesterday and even though I have a lot of fun blowing away bosses in 2 seconds flat, I feel like that’s a bit inappropriate. I actually didn’t notice this with the bow and arrow (albeit still strong) but I’ve been using a handgun primarily.
As long as I’ve had 4~5 stacks of Sure Shot and my ult at the same time, I’ve been able to chunk bosses for like 250 damage per shot. If I have any potion for concoction, it’s 500 damage. God forbid a get a crit with the easily accessible 45% crit rate the Huntsman can reach on his own and delete half the bosses HP in a single shot. And I can fire off about 5 shots in the time I have with Prowl.
While I found this to be strong for the Handgun, I can’t remark on other weapons. Though I feel other weapons have different challenges.
Overall, I think it may just be an issue with the Handgun over-rewarding headshots or having caps too high on Strength or Finesse multipliers. The handgun was never really especially good on other classes, so I think that tuning those multipliers can safely hinder the Huntsman’s prowess with it without affecting it’s questionable performance on other classes.
