Latest Destiny Patch Balances Weapons, Removes Loot Cave
Bungie continues to work to make Destiny a better experience.
The latest patch has rolled out today and it features a bunch of tweaks, fixes and upgrades. You can check out the full list over at the developer's blog; here's a look at the highlights:
As many expected, they've closed the most recent loot cave and they've also eliminated a well-known trick that makes the Vault of Glass raid easier. Perhaps the most significant gameplay alteration involves the balancing of the Auto Rifle. The weapon's base damage has been decreased by 2 percent, its stability reduced by 4-17 percent, and they've decreased the damage multiplier from 1.50 to 1.25. Guess this bad boy was just too powerful in Bungie's eyes.
On the flip side, the Scout Rifles enjoy an upgrade, as their base damage rises 6 percent and they get improved auto-aiming and some recoil tuning. Other weapons have been balanced and modified as well, hopefully for the better.
