  • Destiny 2 community asks Bungie to make primary weapons more powerful

    Members of the Destiny 2 community have begun discussing the lackluster performance of several major weapon prototypes, and how quickly they wish the developers would speed them up. One of the most important aspects of Destiny 2's gunplay is the availability of each weapon archetype and the sheer variety of the arsenal, which allows players to mix and match to find the right combination of weapons for every possible encounter. Unfortunately, that same advantage leads to a stagnation of weapon metadata, forcing players to only use one or two viable weapon archetypes. Players can prepare enough Destiny 2 Silver in the game.

    While recent seasons and expansions have shifted the DPS meta towards skill chains and using super abilities, Destiny 2's multifaceted gameplay still holds together with its crisp and innovative gunplay. Destiny 2's impressive arsenal offers players a choice of projectile- and blade-based weapons that use three different types of ammunition for enhanced lethality. The general concept surrounding ammo types is that primary ammo weapons do relatively low base damage, while special and heavy ammo weapons can deal higher damage values. In terms of gameplay, this usually results in the player equipping a weapon of each ammo type, preparing for each encounter and enemy variant.

    Due to the aforementioned low damage values, Primaries have always been relegated to taking out common combatants and potentially some secondary targets due to the low health of these enemies. While Bungie regularly updates heavy and special weapons, the underpinnings of combat haven't changed much, so primary weapons are still untouched by the patch notes. As Destiny 2's endgames increased in difficulty, players noticed they were being forced to use SMGs against trash mobs. Several players have reported lackluster damage output from pulse and auto rifles on Reddit, noting that enemies feel like bullet sponges in combat.

    This issue was further magnified by the latest Nightmare Roots raid, which saw the fastest world first match in Destiny 2 history. Data from raid reporting and stat tracking sites shows that SMGs like Funnelweb and the CALUS Mini-Tool dominate the primary weapon use section, with only the Quicksilver Storm Exotic Auto Rifle coming close. In light of this conversation, players are asking Bungie to look at Primaries' stagnant meta and buff underpowered weapons instead of nerfing SMGs.

    It's unlikely that Bungie will release a mid-season patch to enhance such a large portion of its arsenal, as a sweeping overhaul of this level would require careful tuning and testing. Players are likely to expect a balance patch to arrive in Destiny 2's next season alongside new legendary weapons. For more game guides, please visit
