A brand new hotfix touchdown in Future 2 Lightfall on March 23 goes to deal with a significant situation that is been inflicting gamers grief because the begin of the most recent enlargement’s launch: lastly, Cabal Thresher harm output goes to be nerfed.
Why is that this necessary? First, a historical past lesson. With the launch of Lightfall, the Cabal airships obtained an enormous improve. Ever since we first stepped foot on Neomuna and began experimenting with Strand powers, the pesky airships started firing missiles that may obliterate you in a single shot. Typically from throughout the map. There’s little recourse when a Thresher cannon pops a blast at you, both; it would monitor round corners, and even by means of doorways on occaision. Provided that they spawn, steadily, on new Patrol location Neomuna, they have been the bane of many a Guardian for weeks now.
It is much more egregious within the Nightfalls or Battlegrounds missions which have been given a makeover recently. In addition to being more durable generally (a change I’m right here for, for what it is price), Guardians are additionally having to cope with Threshers which are outputting harm at method above the supposed charge. Getting one-shot by a cannon to the face while you’re attempting to accrue 200k Lightfall rating on Legend is the antithesis of enjoyable, Bungie.
However why has this been occurring? It is tied to border charge, oddly. Incoming harm from some soures relies in your FPS depend, and the upper the FPS depend, the extra harm you’re taking. The explanation that Threshers can kill you so simply is as a result of their harm is tied to your framerate – a long-standing issue Bungie has been aaware of for fairly a while now. The problem has plagued different (now mounted) sources of harm like Cabal Slugs and Shrieker Projectiles, however stays on others (like Taken Hearth).
However alas! Bungie has listened! In a tweet issued late Wednesday night (UK time), the developer famous that – in an replace as a result of drop on March 23 – Threshers will now not be fairly as deadly.
“We all know these Threshers have been just a little spicy, however you are able to do no matter you set your thoughts to, together with not dying to Threshers, with tomorrow’s hotfix,” says the tweet. “Do not let these desires be desires.”
The textual content taken from the changelog and captured within the tweet reads: ‘Fastened a problem the place Cabal Threshers have been doing extra harm than supposed’. Rejoice!
It stays to be seen what else is included within the changelog, however I am happy to see this situation taking precedence – this is hoping you will not get popped off the map by some dumb cannon while you’re midway by means of your Unique public occasion encounter as of tomorrow. Cheers Bungie.
