Destiny 2s latest nerfs hit The Lament, Felwinters Lie, Falling Guillotine, Frenzy, and more

Another season of Destiny 2 is almost upon us, and that can only mean one thing: I need to book a day off to sift through all the new gear to work out which weapon rolls I'm going to spend the remainder of this pandemic grinding lovelessly for day in, and day out, never stopping even though I have now acquired enough guns to shoot Neptune out of the sea. 

It also means that we're due another major sandbox rebalance, which the dev team has begun detailing in the latest This Week at Bungie post. In time-honoured fashion, Bungie is beginning with the bad news. Which means nerfs. Back in February, assistant game director Joe Blackburn wrote that due to the decision to scrap the weapon sunsetting system, certain archetypes would need to be looked at, lest they dominate in perpetuity. That reckoning is now upon us.

No surprise that Aggressive frame shotguns are on the chopping block. Both Felwinter's Lie and older versions of Astral Horizon with the Quickdraw perk are having it retroactively removed and replaced with Surplus. Turns out being able to swap to the most dangerous boom stick in the game lightning fast was a bit too good in PvP. Who knew!  

Also no shock is the reduction in range being made to 120 rpm hand cannons, which have also been terrorising the Crucible. Over in PvE, the wildly popular new Frenzy perk is being reigned in too, with the damage bonus shrinking from 20 percent to 15 percent. That's probably fair, given how easy it is to activate, but I imagine people with a vault full of Frenzy weapons will be irritated nonetheless.

Two of the most popular swords in the game are also being blunted somewhat. The Lament exotic is one of the best burst DPS weapons the game has ever seen, and will likely still be good after it eats a 16 percent damage reduction to its heavy attack. Meanwhile Falling Guillotine, the spin-to-win void sword, is getting another nerf, this time to the cost of its heavy attack. 

For those looking for a crumb of good news, Bungie intriguingly noted that it is tweaking the Reservoir Burst perk. The bonus damage is coming down from 33 percent to 25 percent, but what makes that intriguing is that Reservoir Burst has only ever been found on the Loaded Question pinnacle weapon. Seeing as that gun will remain sunset, it's a heavy hint that the perk will feature on a fusion rifle next season. 

Speaking of fusions, the exotic Bastion will no longer deal chip damage through shields, but will stagger Unstoppable Champions, meaning it could find a place in PvE after having long been a PvP staple.

There should be more good news on the way too, as community manager dmg04 said on Twitter that additional perk and archetype buffs will be featured in a future TWAB post, likely towards the end of April. And from the sounds of things, the comically underused Linear Fusion Rifle archetype is already booked into the shop to be fixed.

Season 14 of Destiny 2 will start on 11 May. I've posted all the sandbox changes announced today below the line.
