Destiny’s Black Spindle Exotic Nerf Already Announced
But it’s not what you think.
So there’s good news and bad news when it comes to the Exotic sniper rifle Black Spindle, which Destiny: The Taken King players could acquire in yesterday’s Daily Heroic mission. The bad news is that Bungie is already planning to nerf the weapon. However, according to community manager David “DeeJ” Dague, it’s because the weapon’s attack value wasn’t supposed to be at 310.
“Wouldn’t you know it, there is a bug that is enabling some of these weapons to drop at 310 – that’s 20 points higher than intended. In the near future, we’ll be releasing an update that will adjust the Black Spindle to match the attack rating for other Year Two Exotics.”
However, the good news is that this update will only affect the weapon when it eventually goes live. It won’t affect weapons you’ve chosen to infuse with the Black Spindle. “It has also come to our attention that you are using this new acquisition to Infuse your other weapons. Good on you. Have fun with that. None of those weapons will be affected by this change – only the Spindle.”
Thoughts on these changes, especially considering how torturous yesterday’s fight was? Let us know in the comments.
