That actually doesn’t make much sense…
The Gunslinger Super can either be really effective, or pretty weak, in the Destiny 2 beta- it really mostly depends on which mode you are playing, as it turns out. Reddit users GonzytheMage, and LastNightsRadio have shared GIFs which demonstrate, when put side by side (as they have been below) just how absurdly underpowered the Gunslinger Super is in PvE modes compared to in PvP modes.
That… actually doesn’t make much sense to me (since I’d think that it would be the other way around), but hey- maybe this is necessary to keep the Gunslinger viable in PvP play. I don’t actually play Destiny anymore, so what do I know anyway.
Maybe this is something that ends up changing by the time the final game launches (after all, soliciting feedback is the entire point of a beta test). Destiny 2 itself, meanwhile, is due to launch on Xbox One and PS4 in September, with a release on PC following the next month.
