Auto rifle and shotgun nerfs are in while scout rifles have been buffed.
Bungie continues to toil away on Destiny, improving and balancing out features as it goes. While the Iron Banner live event has been a major bust, the most recent hot fix at least addresses some key issues.
For example, the game’s most powerful weapon, the Vex Mythoclast, has been nerfed. Damage has been reduced by 34 percent but headshot bonus damage has been increased by 1.5 times. There’s also a major fix for a boss battle in the Vault of Glass raid where you encounter the Templar. If you were counting on hiding on the sniper platforms where Hobgoblins spawn, then that will no longer be possible. A kill volume has been put on these platforms and if a player with the Relic happens to leave the playable area, it will be removed and respawn. Sorry cheesers but it had to be done.
Other changes include nerfs to the auto rifles and shotguns, a buff to scout rifles and the Rocketyard no longer acting as a handy loot cave. Check out all the changes here and let us know what you think.
