VC-30 Sickle Shotgun Re-Buffed

In April, we issued a server-side balancing fix for the VC-30 'Sickle' shotgun, following reports from the community (confirmed by our own telemetry) that the weapon was somewhat overpowered. Unfortunately, the fix itself contained an error that made the weapon less useful than intended.


The 'nerfing' that resulted did not go unnoticed in the community, as many of you began referring to the Sickle as the Tickle. Today we hope to rectify the issue – and the unfortunate nickname – with a second server-side balancing fix, which corrects the error and 'buffs' the Sickle to its intended strength.

 

We apologize for the inconvenience the shotgun fans among you have experienced as a result of our ongoing tweaks. The new settings for the Sickle are now live, so please give them a try and let us know what you think in the comments below and on Killzone Player Voice.
