Huge Destiny 2 Weapon Balance Changes in The Final Shape

6 min read 0 1

Get ready for new Destiny 2 weapon balance changes in The Final Shape with various buffs and nerfs!

Today, Bungie delighted us with a huge amount of news regarding weapons in Destiny 2. Previously, developers revealed three new Exotic armor pieces, and we will get even more new info in the coming week. However, in The Final Shape, we can expect numerous weapon changes in Destiny 2 that will reshape the meta so drastically that you’ll have to abandon your favorite guns. So, let’s take a look at what Bungie has prepared for us.

Khvostov is Back

Let’s start with the announcement that Bungie is bringing back the beloved Khvostov Auto Rifle in its Exotic form! In The Final Shape, you can obtain this weapon with a perk that causes every seven bullets to ricochet off enemies. We’ll see how this weapon performs in The Final Shape, but for now, let’s move on to the article’s main topic.

Global Weapon Changes in Destiny 2

With the release of TFS, weapon mods like Boss Spec, Taken Spec, Minor Spec, Major Spec, and Adept Big Ones Spec will be deleted from the game, but almost every weapon received damage changes. As a result, the bonus damage that Exotic weapons deal against red bars will be reduced from 40% to 30%. Overall, however, the damage of these weapons remains the same.

Bungie recognizes that many weapon archetypes, particularly Pulse Rifles, are less effective than others. Therefore, they decided to further increase the damage output of many guns:

Bungie didn’t stop at damage number changes and made a few more pleasant (and not-so-pleasant) changes:

That’s all for the global changes. The most notable is the Pulse Rifles, which will finally become a solid primary weapon on par with Hand Cannons. We recommend preparing Outbreak Perfected or Graviton Lance for TFS, as they may be very useful.

The Final Shape Exotic Weapon Changes

Now let’s talk about the Exotic weapons that will receive significant changes in The Final Shape. There have been many adjustments, but we’ve chosen the most important ones from the list.

The Final Shape Perk Changes

Next, we will discuss some of the new features in The Final Shape. While some of them are significant, let’s not waste any time and get right into it.

Final Words

That’s all we’ve been told about the weapon changes in The Final Shape. In exactly one week, we’ll get news about abilities and exotic armor, so prepare for even more nerfs! What do you think about these changes? Share your thoughts in the comments!
