Destiny The Taken King DLC Launch Nerfs Gjallarhorn, Fans Less Than Pleased
Another day, another way Bungie has annoyed Destiny fans.
Since The Taken King has been announced, it seems as if Bungie has done nothing but annoy the people it most needs. It’s possible quite a bit of the annoyances will go away when the rather pricey DLC finally launches, but for now the firm seems to be bringing different features that are only unwanted. Considering that the company has talked about the huge amount of changes coming. It seems likely at least some of those changes will actually be positive.
The latest announcement, in which the company is going to be nerfing some of the most popular weapons is certainly not being met with happiness and joy. Among those announcements is that the company will be downgrading one of the bigger weapons, known as the Gjallarhorn. On the company’s official website Bungie announced that it is changing the damage level of the Wolfpack rounds. The firm says it is doing this because some Destiny players were refusing to play alongside others who didn’t have this weapon.
The same is being done with other weapons, such as the Ice Breaker, which is having its recharge time increased in order to keep people from killing off as many enemies in as short a period of time as possible. Other weapons like the Black Hammer are getting this treatment as well. When it comes to the reaction of the fans, there isn’t much positivity coming. Some fans are even starting petitions in order to try and stop Bungie from messing with the weapons when Taken King launches.
We’ll just have to wait and see if those kinds of petitions actually work. Destiny: The Taken King is out on September 15th for Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360.
