I know The Bee was nerfed to limit it's (insane) effectiveness when used with multi-projectile weapons. I've heard conflicting reports on how this is implemented though; I've heard that damage is always spread evenly across all "pellets" from a single shot, rather than applied once per pellet (as it used to be) and I've also heard that it only affects shotguns, and I've heard some mutli-projectile weapons like the Sand Hawk still have insane bonuses from The Bee.
What I'm thinking is that The Bee's damage is only split between each pellet listed on the item card (i.e. the "x15" you see on Shotguns' damage), so when a single pellet is fired but splits into many, each might retain full amp damage from The Bee? Unfortunately I don't have a Sand Hawk to test with.
Can anyone confirm exactly how The Bee works in regards to "splitting" bullet weapons like that? Is the amp damage "split" or applied in full to each pellet when a gun fires a single (or multiple) pellets which then split into even more?
