A lot of people are saying WL 2 weapon balance is bad. I consider it to be mediocre. Well, terminology aside, the modding community already started "fixing" some of the weaker aspects of the game. If you think WL 2 weapon system could be more diverse, instead of "everyone gets an AR", you will probably enjoy this mod (I know I do). Link:

Note: this mod does NOT change the energy weapon mechanics. In facts, it buffs some of them.
Note 2: This mod also affects enemies. You've been warned.

Yeah. Latter on this becomes an even bigger issue. You start feeling like your AR guys/gals are the only ppl that matter. Anyhow, now my MG actually feels like a machine gun, and not some "turbo peeshooter", my sniper chick no longer feels useless and I can no longer ignore enemies with pistols. They hurt! Like, a lot!

Don't work too hard on this Eyestabber, I hear inXile's balance patch is going to change things.

Well, as much as I'd like to be capable of creating this fine piece of MOD work, I'm not the modder. I am, however, glad to hear that the Devs are working on this issue. Hopefully they will allow me to put a scope on my MP5. Not allowing scopes on SMGs is another baffling design decision. I mean, COME ON, you can even find it on youtube:

I haven't played this game for a while (it was before the patch where they added Steam Achievements). Did Inxile actually balance weapons since that or are ARs still OP and LMGs shit?

They didn't. They've started working on some super-edition that is supposed to fix everything wrong with W2.

that would be the console edition, with some minor fixes that will be hyped as second coming of whatever the fuck.

Really, this BALANCE shit has infected single player games too now?

:balance:

I thought it was only MMOfags that bitched about balance all the time.

I couldn't care less about Sawyeristic Raiders of the Lost Balance, but it gets really annoying when my utility character is a lot more effective in combat than my pure combat characters, just because he happens to be using an assault rifle.
