  • Community suggestion Heavy weapons (ie. slow but powerful weapons) have changed. They have unique affixes that will increase their damage, give stun effect or area slow-downs. If you manage to hit your target, it shouldsuffer.
    Attacks done with these weapons can no longer be interrupted if you get hit by an enemy, except if this enemy stuns you.
  • Community suggestion Heavy weapons are no longer Survival only, they are back to Brutality/Survival hybrid.
  • Community suggestion New FrontLine Shield which is a Survival/Brutality shield that that gets +X% damage if you recently hit an enemy using a melee attack.
