I've played the new Garden raid, and the strikes, and I gotta say, I don't see why Whisper needed a nerf. Heavy ammo is scarce (even with heavy ammo finder perks), and I think a perk that provides infinite ammo as long as three consecutive precision shots are hit, is more than deserving of my exotic slot. So please, bring back the Whisper that provided infinite ammo, or move it into the energy slot, making it a legendary. Please.
I agree, but the gun is going to need more competition before it makes it's return. I think that maybe adding the perk that would slowly Regen it's ammo would be nice so it would be a great option for roaming instead of purley boss dmg. Like 1 bullet per 20 seconds or something. But hopefully when Sleeper becomes the highest initial dps option, whisperer will come back as the best overall dps option. As both are but far the hardest to use (as in getting crits). I still beleive Sleeper would be perfect if it became a more powerful version of Izagnagis burden.
