Nestled on page eight of Helldivers 2’s free warbond is an assuming gun—the SG-85 Slugger. I didn’t pay much mind to the Slugger for a long time, or even bother unlocking it, because it’s a variant of the Punisher, a shotgun I don’t like. That changed when my friend informed me that the Slugger isn’t really a shotgun—it’s a shotgun-shaped rifle that fires slugs that can unalive anything in seconds. It’s so good at killing that I feel like I’m cheating when I use it.

So I wasn’t surprised when the Slugger got the biggest nerfs in yesterday’s Helldivers 2 patch that also buffed sniper rifles, flame damage, and heavy armor. Arrowhead hit the popular gun where it hurts:

  • Reduced stagger.
  • Reduced damage from 280 to 250.
  • Reduced demolition force.
