So? People had to know powercreep was gonna get nerfed. It doesn't really make sense to auto-headshot anyways. 

I dunno, man. I think if you get enveloped by a massive explosion, some of your face might get grilled off a bit, too. Not that I'm against the nerf or anything.

Excellent work DE. You finally returned the Tonkor to how it should have been all along.

Now please, finish the job and reduce its damage to be on-par with the self-damage explosives. And then buff the self-damage explosives so everything is lined up as it should be.

yes, lets slap it into the dirt even though people have  put alot of effort into the weapon (dont use argon scope on it) yes, lets make it really crappy so it borderline unusable, screw the people who put real money into the weapon. yay

Seconded. Now other explosive weapons are relevant. I will probably still use the Tonkor just cause it's fun, but at least I can use other explosive weapons without feeling like the Tonkor would have been automatically the superior choice.

yes, i am a fan of explosive weapons dont get me wrong but the fact that the other explosive weapons can and will kill you if you mess up once makes them terrible

Since people complaining that much about nerfs, they decided to nerf it step by step, it has started months ago when they balanced a few weapons caus Arcane Rage used to trigger a bit more than expected.. and now they finally done with their job.

Once again we wasted formas and time on a weapon we ll never use again, mission accomplished DE.. as usual

Not really, this applies to all AOE weapons, not just the Tonkor.

Except they didn't actually touch the Tonkor, just the auto headshot damage from explosions. I'm sure this applies to all explosive weapons. Your Tonkor that you wasted blood and sweat on is still the same, now you actually have to aim the projectiles at the heads instead of letting them hit their feet.

Yeah, but since Tonkor is crit-based, it got 4x damage on headshots instead of 2x

Ya but with the Pentas you can detonate it in the air to still score headshots since the mechanic was changed to be location sensitive in respect to the target and the point of detonation.  Tonkor can still crit headshot, just not as easily.
