At this time, the perks for the Blunderbuss will remain disabled while the Dev team investigate an issue with them, as stated in the following post:
We appreciate your patience while the team investigates these issues and share further information regarding this. Please do keep an eye on the forums for future information! I’m sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused.
Seems to me like AGS discovered something that is an issue, and is trying to get behind it before its exploited and messes with the playerbase. A long time ago there was an issue with some hatchet abelites that caused CRAZY multiplying damage buffs, and for a short period, the hatchet was the only thing people were running. Thank you AGS for getting behind this potential problem right away, and disabling it until there is a solution. Yeah if you used those two specific abilities on the BB, and the BB is the only weapon you use, it sucks. But for the entire rest of the playerbase, we appreciate not having an exploit throwing pvp out of whack for a couple weeks.
At this time, as stated before, we unfortunately do not have more information regarding an ETA for a fix, or when the perks will be re enabled. By the way, welcome to the forums, @jrquadros !
I understand these perks are staples to a Blunderbuss build. I recommend that you keep an eye on the forums for further news about this in the future. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
there was an issue. at first i thought they disabled it because netshot keeps firing into the ground half of the time but its still the case and disabling the perks didnt do anything.
someone one torikus stream yesterday said that the netshot with those 2 upgrades kept sending people to the desktop in wars (like literally ALT F4ing them). guess they are trying to figure out whats causing it
