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

Everything seems balanced. Maybe there's a glitch with the silenced semi-auto getting 2hit down+kill. Not sure. Maybe its lag. Its not consistent enough to be an OP situation.

No Needs. No buffs for that matter.

Yeah, I think the Burst Rifle and the 9mm are both low tier weapons. Other than that, I think all the others are viable options. It really comes down to personal preference.

There's a bug with the burst rifle vs armor. It's known and being fixed.

Of course I realize that still means weapon changes are more than likely going to happen... but I would much rather see a slight buff in something than making something weaker. The power of the weapons does not need to be reduced at all. I personally don't think much needs to be buffed either... but I'm glad to know "nerfing" is more or less off the table.

For a while, I suspected the Bow was OP and used it for a time. But then I came back to the Semi-Auto and now I think they're balanced. So, I'm on board the no need to nerf train!

I tried the semi auto a few times.  Good lord... three quick shots to down someone?

 

Good accuracy?  Good ammo availability?

I see why people use it so much.
