Why was the G-Mal nerf in 1.13?

40 replies 541 views Edited Feb 2, 2013

Someone please tell me why they nerf aiming by adding recoil to the G-mal?

 

I think they shoulda made the G-mal unlocked for level 55 or something since it was easy to aim. Higher level = better guns?

Also, sorry for a useless thread.

To be honest i never thought the G-Mal was OP besides its insane Stopping Power. People were still not happy and thought adding more recoil would make it more balanced and make more of a variety between the weapons, Oh yeah that plan worked fantastic right?

 

Now its a matter of time before ND takes this complaining about the M-9 the wrong way and nerfs that as well.

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

2 things made the gmal OP, for me.

 

1) stopping power

2) scoped-in aim assist (the scope, not the booster)

 

the recoil nerf was needless. however, that said, the gmal is still a useful gun.

Oh yeah its still useful, I've been an M-9 user since forever and I can pull good scores with it. I just don't know why so many people have gravitated away from it.

I don't think that Scoped In gives you more aim assist, it's just that tryhards used the stereotypical Scoped In/Bargain/QB combo.

Im not talking about the booster. I mean clicking R3 and using the scope. the gmals "scoped-in" aim assist was stupidly strong.

 

The automatic aim assist is why the gun was so overused, and also why now it is so underused. most people couldnt be bothered learning how to actually aim it themselves.

Though I never actually hated the G-mal back then, I hated its ease of use. Being a level 1 gun and having an amazing treasure gun, made it accesible to everyone right away. It was near impossible to combat an entire party of G-mal users, which is the thing that annoyed me the most since it's stopping power + 0 recoil made it great at all ranges they could scatter all over the place and take you out from every corner.

 

I think it was good that it got its nerfs, I'll admit that it isn't my main gun, but I'm still able to pick it up and kill with it. I honestly don't know where all the crying about the gun being useless trash is coming from.

I know one guy that can still rape with the G-MAL. He uses the Accuracy mod with it and can get kills from across the map.
