Destiny April Update

Now that Destiny‘s April update has officially landed, there’s plenty of things for players to check out. Among those things are a swatch of new and updated weapons. As is the case when these new weapons tend to land in the game, there’s talk about some of the weapons being overpowered. David “DeeJ” Dague recently sat down with GameReactor in order to talk about the rumors of overpowering weapons.

“I think the weapons designers would certainly regard a word like overpowered as a dirty word. That is definitely something they would want to iterate upon. There isn’t a strategy by which they would say ‘let’s make this weapon overpowered.’ Their goal is always to provide a wealth of options that they can embrace and still feel powerful.” Dague said.

When it come to these weapons, the community manager said the company takes a ton of feedback from the community into account when it comes to tweaking weapons. Those tweaks are always done in order to try and make Crucible matches as competitive as possible.
