Explaining these changes, Raven Software said the Nail Gun was designed to be lethal in close quarters like a shotgun. However, the max damage range was much greater than shotguns, allowing players to take down enemies at the same speed, or faster, than shotguns at nearly twice their effective range. As such, Raven is nerfing it. The developer didn’t explain why the assault rifles are changing, however.

As for attachments, several barrels are seeing their recoil control decreased by various percentage points. Raven said one of its goals is to reward players for learning things like reload times, the amount of bullets it takes to down an enemy, and the recoil patterns.

“Your proficiency with a Weapon should be a journey that is worked toward with an equivalent payoff. When we make weapons too effective and too easy to control, there is no journey of mastery and we can become disinterested with these weapons much quicker, which we feel can be a disservice,” the developer said.

“Even after these changes, we understand that there may still be incredibly effective and easy to control weapons when enough recoil control is applied through attachments. We will continue to target these Weapons as they arise to ensure that they strike a satisfactory balance between upside and downside.”
