Blink Shotgun

I think Blink makes Shotguns overpowered in PvP. What's the sandbox team's thoughts on Blink Shotgun? I would go more in depth, but I'm driving down the interstate. :)

  • Eyes on the road! Oprah would be quite angry with you. The way weapons and abilities collide with other weapons and abilities is always being looked at. Blink is sweet. Shotguns are sweet. Together they are super sweet. We know this. This play style helped us settle on shotgun range values for the 1.1.1 patch. And I should be clear that I'm NOT saying "1.1.1 shotguns make blink & shotgun more balanced". :) But I do think the range change helps in this case. Blink is also not necessarily an easy play style out of the box. People who are good at it, are GOOD AT IT, and are probably just as lethal with other non-blink movement modes. We will definitely continue to monitor this, and any other interesting power spikes that come from weapon and ability combinations.

    • That's what is glorious about PVP! You are forced to adapt to the enemies play-style, or technique, which forces you to stay on your toes. It's just like any tactic in this game, it has its strengths, and weaknesses. (#sarcasm) Hawkmoon is the remedy for everything in crucible lol.

          • Nothing is overpowered. Every armor/weapon/ability has a counter. You need to learn the counter. If you see a blinking shotgunner switch to sticky grenades. When they close attach a grenade, both of you die, they lose ammo. Or get a sniper and get them before they can close on you.
