Ever since they nerfed bounty hunter poison dart they are now useless at fighting jedi. Now the best unit for dealing with jedi is mandolorian with flamethrower which is useless if the jedi has speed, and with the recent jedi and sith buffs making guns do less fp damage they essentially have infinite fp now unless they just stand there with at least 2 people with decent accuracy are shooting at a force user. Poison dart nerf has made it completely useless and in turn made bounty hunter completely outclassed by the madnolorian in every possible way. Also the disruptor is easily outclassed by the projectile rifle since it costs 2 extra points for some reason.

I'd like to see maybe a few more fun things for Bounty Hunter. I think the poison nerf was good, but also should probably make the darts cost a bit less? Poison NADES would be pretty fun...

Anyways, BH is not underpowered imo.

If you are a skilled Bounty Hunter, you use your fast speed to stay out of the range of Jedi / getup to your advantage, all the while draining their FP (P3 for drains, just gotta get good at landing em consecutively). You are using your BH kick / flying kick to surprise Jedi, you are landing snipes/popsnipes and quickly switching to prim weapon to drain if on the frontline. Usually a good idea not to push like a soldier, though. Stay behind your team and use cover / distance right for the win. Very few good BHs out there are rushing forward in front of their team.

Keep in mind that a jedi regens 5 FP per second, so if you poison dart them, that turns into 2.5 FP per second. It would take 3 seconds for me to block the lowest draining FP shot of any gun at close range. E11, the most used gun in the game, does 9 FP up close on a blocking jedi. It would take me 4 seconds to get enough FP to block 1 E11 secondary shot up close. P3, the other gun BH gets, does up to 12-17 FP on a jedi up close, making it take 5-7 seconds to block 1 P3 shot. Keep in mind that these darts are also hitscan, so if you can aim at all, the jedi is NOT dodging these darts. And ruptor being outclassed by proj because of point costs? It is literally a Hitscan lazer beam that can 1 shot a wookiee. You peak a good ruptor, you die.

And this is all in a 1v1 scenario, the moment you have a 2nd teammate ever, It might as well be turning off my FP regen, because 2.5 FP regen per second is not going to make a difference at all.

and with the recent jedi and sith buffs making guns do less fp damage
Most of the guns got FP buffs tho, the only guns that got nerfs were the super high draining guns, or the guns with high ROF.

The only thing making FP drains do less were on saber defense 0 and 1, defense 0 was kinda pointless because you cant block shots with it at all unless you have deflect (might not be a thing anymore), and saber defense 1 still means your eating 22 FP up close from a P3, 18 FP from a bowcaster, 41 FP from a t21 primary. etc

Poison dart and flamethrower are (most of the time) equally useless against a decent Jedi (don’t even need speed). They just run right through it and kill you.

BH: Has a hitscan onetap weapon in a projectile-based game that at high levels, largely negates enemy peekers sans dodge/dash 2 hero spammers. Has P3 (the 120 dmg headshot machine), E11, DLT, 3 poison darts that let you drain a full Jedi in 9 P3 or 12 E11 shots (assuming 1v1), with backup gunkick to counter aggressive Jedi, and has the fastest movespeed in the game. Oh, and proj, if you wanna halve a Jedi's FP in one shot in addition to the poison and sidearms.
