2x4 wasn't nerfed, that is considered a tweak

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

sanddude it was nerfed, it appears less and later during the game and never appears in survivors. A tweak is either a buff or a nerf in this case it was a nerf as per ND developers description of patch.

No. A nerf is when the effectiveness of something has been lowered. An example of a nerf to the 2x4 is if it were to take 3 hits to down or it had 3 uses instead of four. 

 

What ND did was a tweak to the supply algorithms. A 2x4 still has the same effectiveness since launch.

*looking*

Nope, not a single post prior to your own that said "nerf the shivs". Twirling around somebody and changing your camera angle isn't stealthy, it's stupid. Nice try, though.

Enough with the nerfs and buffs. Everyone knows there's a few things that needs to be adjusted.
