When Will Akimbo Double Barrel Shotguns Get Nerfed?

As Raven's Tweet shows, it's unknown as to when the shotguns will finally receive their much-needed nerf. With the start of Season 1 Reloaded right around the corner, there's every chance the developer implements the nerf along with the rest of the update that's also expected to include changes to other popular weapons such as the Bren and the Cooper Carbine.

Season 1 Reloaded is expected to begin on January 10th but with several QA testers currently on strike, the mid-season update could well be pushed back in order to ensure the new content functions properly.
