Brink Weapon Tweaks Detailed


Alongside today's game update, the PC version of Brink also received a big bundle of weapon tweaks put together by Brink team balancing council. Among other things, heavy weapons and grenade launchers are getting a boost, while SMGs are dialled back a bit. Very nearly everything else gets tickled with the balancing stick, as well, so there's literally something for everyone.
