Nerf stinger pistol (and all of this)

Let's be honest, that stinger pistol is cheap and annoying. It should be nerfed against heroes specially. It's just dumb to die to that. No more than 60 damage done to heroes, Stinger is supposed to be like a health dampener, to stop heroes from recovering quickly. Not kill them from full health, geez.

All damage from regulars done to heroes, all effects should he nerfed. With the arc trooper and command droid, it's hard enough to battle a bunch of regulars. They knock you down, they blind you. This are heroes,. they cost A LOT just to be killed in a second. And before you say I'm bad, I'm not. I play on PC, aim is much better there and overall I've seen that awareness is too. I've survived matches from beginning to end with a hero if a play a bit passively, it's hard to manage more than 50 killstreak in PC. I usually end up on the top 5 players, I'm not bad. But honestly, the amount of times I've died to stinger pistols is just silly.

So like I said, all effects from regulars to heroes should be nerfed. Explosions, blaster shots, flashbangs, stinger, turrets... AND ALSO MELEE. What's with that thing when a regular hits you, you can't do anything. I was playing Anakin, full health, I got down to 100 because a regular wouldn't stop meleeing me. I couldn't dodge, attack and specially do any ability. It's like the animation is interrupted and the ability doesn't even go into cooldown.


TL;DR: Nerf all blaster damage and ability effects done from troopers to heroes to improve their survivability in PC.

  • That's exactly why they end up top in the board, heroes should boost your points, THEY ARE HEROES. They cost 4000!!! as you said, no regular should be able to do that much damage. Vehicles and all that must be nerfed against heroes. Otherwise you are not getting value for your points.

    The stinger pistol is weak, why make it weaker? It is very difficult to take you at face value when you say a dude with a stinger pistol took your hero health down from max. Sure it's possible but not probable, don't be upset, just move on and be more careful about your health next time. How can I be more careful next time you say? Well, as soon as you notice that first hit you've taken with a stinger pistol, go find another enemy to tackle so the dude shooting you with a stinger pistol can't see you anymore. Oh that brings up another point, keep moving around, the more you move the more difficult it is to even shoot someone with the stinger pistol.

    TL; Dr stinger pistol is weak, cannot take a hero down from full health by itself, should not be nerfed.

    You can’t be invincible because that’s just no fun for us ‘regulars’ aka hero cannon fodder.
  • Did I miss something? Did the stinger get a massive buff?
    EA/DICE still owe me 83 crafting part crates, with interest...

    My thoughts exactly. And the answer is no.

    That's like going and saying Kenobi should get a 10k damage bonus and no stamina lost in the high ground...


    Except he needs that buff.

    The Stinger Pistol is the only close ranged weapon the Specialist has. Nerfing it would make Specialists worthless at that range and force everybody to switch to the broken Brawler/Personal Shield combo.

    You know what would be really fun? All Specialists switch to Repulser Cannon, so we can knock Jedi Heroes around repeatedly like they do us. Then they'll know how it feels to be ping ponged around the map.

    let's knock it off with the sarcastic comments about the "trauma" of losing a hero. It's adding nothing to the conversation except trying to cause an argument.
  • Stinger is not OP. With OP Anikin around its really one of the few things that you can do to ward him of. Its a little nerf wrecking for the hero but its balanced as you can escape quite easliy. And I think I have only been killed once as a hero or villain by a stinger - and that was when I was very low before - and I played them hundreds of times.

    If only they would fix the Repulse Cannon glitch. I had it loaded out a few times, until I learned that it is completely broken to use.

    We know how that feels. Anakin exists. And that's the point of the specialist, to be a long rage trooper, should we give range to the heavy now? No. Stinger pistol is stupid, it has bonus damage to heroes. All it takes is 3 guys firing you and your health goes all the way down.


    Every sarcastic comment comes from a noob that cannot get enough points to play a hero and know how annoying that pistol is. You all probably play in console as well. The aim in PC makes it harder to play any hero that's not Anakin or Yoda. And even then, there's the stinger pistol to kill those 2.
