So what are counselors going to do when he's in rage mode and he grabs someone you're trying to save by hitting him with a melee weapon? Will that not stun him and just let him kill your counselor buddy unless they have a pocketknife? Or will it just flinch him for a split second, which will lead him to spamming that grab button again or resort to slashing the both of you to death? That'd also mean firecrackers and flare guns are useless for the counselors who aren't fit to fight like Deborah or La Chappa.
Shotguns are already so rare in the game if you have to rely on that only to save someone else...the most I've seen spawn in a round is 2; usually around a campfire and, if you're lucky, in the big house/bathrooms. The other exception is Tommy Jarvis who comes with a shotgun already.
Not saying that the update is bad; it's good they're patching up glitches that people are abusing. I get that it's supposed to be more challenging with the buffs for Jason, even more so with the limited number of supplies and weapons for counselors, but I feel the 100% invincibility to an already powerful Jason during rage mode is a bit much. A more reduced stun chance seems more logical than locking out the stun chance completely, which makes sucker punch a useless skill toward the 10-15 minute mark when there is most likely only 1 or 2 counselors left. There are also various other glitches like the throwing knife to a moving car that work in Jason's favor, which puts even the best of counselors in deplorable situations that leaves them to die.
