Destiny 2

Along with Curse of Osiris, Bungie has also released update 1.1.0 for Destiny 2 which adds a number of bug fixes and quality life changes. Naturally, because this is a Destiny patch, it also nerfs a bunch of things.

Pulse grenades have seen their damage slightly reduced while the recharge rate of additional grenade charges after the first has been reduced. Damage done by other grenade types has been increased, likely to bring them in line with the current Pulse grenade. Other changes include the distance traveled with Shoulder Charge without a target being reduced and an increase in the number of solar hammers that can be thrown during Hammer of Sol.

For Gunslingers, Shadowshot now immediately suppresses targets on direct hit while the base duration for Golden Gun in both skill trees is the same. Warlocks can no longer add extra damage to Explosive Rounds with Empowering Rifts.
