PvP will be way less frustrating without Thorn being OP.

Thorn is still going to have Send It, and the nerf to the dot isn't as bad as I was expecting.

I don't think this nerf is going to hit as hard as the Auto Rifle nerf last year, so I wouldn't expect Thorn to disappear altogether. =/

Not happy about the nerf to Black Hammer, but hopefully the Gally nerf will reduce the "must have Gally or GTFO" elitism in LFG (no, I'm not bitter, why do you ask?)

I know this isn't a popular opinion right now, but I'm actually really happy about most of the changes. I can't wait to try the Thorn change; the Hawkmoon nerf will be a little sad for PvE, but way less frustrating for PvP; the Gjallerhorn change is a little sad; the Ice Breaker change is a lot sad; the Last Word change will be far less frustrating for PvP, and I never used it for PvE anyway.

The base weapon nerfs/buffs seem like they'll be pretty good too. Auto Rifles will finally make a comeback, Hand Cannons won't be able to compete with Scout Rifles anymore, Pulse Rifles will be used more for their intended purpose, Fusion Rifles will be a little odd, but I think in the end it'll be ok.

The only thing is that people thought that the last weapons update would fix everything too, but it just made only a couple of weapons viable for many situations. We'll see.

I wholeheartedly agree. The only change I was slightly disappointed in was the change to IceBreaker. We all knew Gjally couldn't stay a god tier weapon forever.

I'm excited to maybe be able to roll with my scout and not get outranged by a handcannon

I'm actually pretty excited to try the Thorn with it's DOT being 'fixed'/stackable. Though I may just be getting my hopes up for nothing.

It'll definitely make it more relevant in PvE
