Ever since the whisper of the worm nerf it has been garbage. So why is it still in the heavy slot? It should be moved into the special slot along with darci. It makes nonsense to have them in the heavy because they do not do as much damage as other heavy weapons. It made sense to have the whisper in the heavy slot when it had unlimited ammo(pre nerf white nail perk).
Honestly, I'm ok with Whisper being back to how it was in D1. It still works just fine, you just need to be more cautious about how frequently you use it (i.e. boss dmg). Players just got spoiled rotten about having unlimited ammo for heavy damage. Using DARCI as an alternative to Whisper is a great thing to. Special does come up more frequently than heavy and with the catalyst theres hardly any recoil. Rate of fire is superior too. Plus it lets me slot a heavy LMG as a good backup. I say keep it how it is and those that are unhappy, find a way to accept it because its not as bad as you think it is.
