Stinger pistol nerf to hero’s.

I know for a damn fact I’m not the only one who went down from 560 to zero with grievous in 6 seconds. Next the damn damage.

  • I agrees hero’s need to take way less damage
  • Nah, it's fine.

    That Specialist rework was disappointing.

    There is nothing wrong with it, especially when the hero your are trying to take down already has a 50+ kill streak.
    It’s not fine. The fact it can get you down from 450 to zero is beyond absurd. Light saber hero’s already struggle with the role. Don’t need the freaking stinger pistol to worry about too.

    This statement is absurd...that person was getting hit by other things cause the stinger pistol doesn't do anything close to 450 total health damage. If it did I'd have 100s more hero kills and every specialist would have one equipped. The last round I played I hit Leia several times with a stinger pistol when she was at about 1/4 health and I didn't kill her and she kept fleeing away from the fight while I gave chase until she stopped taking damage and she turned and finally killed me.

    Unless if several people hit with a stinger pistol at once. I don't know if the damage stacks or what happens in that case but even so, it's still fine.

    I literally have proof buddy. I can show you. It killed me from 450 to zero. I’m not lying. So it’s not absurd it’s the truth.
  • I was close to 300 health. Got shot by stinger pistol by one dude behind me... 300 health. I died. Those stupid 10 seconds and bonus damage on heroes is beyond absurd.
  • Nah. Leave the stinger pistol alone. It's fine as is.
    Heroes are born on the battlefront... especially if you play the objective.

  • Video proof or it didn't happen!

    Plus, the stinger pistol is still fine even with proof.
  • Oh heck no, leave it alone

    What with the pseudo-Messiah that is Skywalker, the Stinger pistol is my only real way of saying something that has any real weight before he batters me dead and that I suck as the sniper because he’s not the most efficient player to use in close combat

    Sounds more like you weren't paying attention. He shot you like 5-8 times. Its not like 1 shot did it.

    Each shot takes you down about 60 HP I think it is, and you can't regen health for an extended period of time. If you lost 450 HP, that means that they hit you with 7 or 8 shots, or you were also getting hit by something else, and you couldn't regen your health because of the stinger effect. The pistol shoots fast, and doesn't overheat for a long time, so getting 7 or 8 shots in you is simple. Any time you get hit with a stinger, make sure to run and get behind cover until you determine where you are getting shot from, and can regain your health.
  • No, leave it alone. Heroes are basically immortal in the right hands in GA. The stinger pistol is actually their only weakness.

  • yes the stinger needs nerfed but not as a damage reduction to heroes. if you're hit by a stinger it shouldn't stack. get hit once, it does ten seconds of damage that's it. you're immune from continually being hit by the stinger during the ten seconds you're being damaged.

    Yeah....I use a lot the stinger and you need to be very lucky (i'm speaking about 1 pistol vs a hero, not several) to kill one. You need to find a hero completely stationary for seconds and shoot him from behind. It is unlikely and 99% of the times it is just annoyance.

    Don't touch this, i'm Fed of all these updates that only brings bugs and unbalance.
