Destiny's The Taken King DLC Will Offer Weapon Balancing
The huge upcoming expansion for Destiny, The Taken King, doesn't just include a bunch of new content.
It will also feature some significant balancing tweaks for the weapons, something the community will undoubtedly appreciate.
Those who play routinely probably know all about the power of the hand cannon Thorn, and the awesomeness of the Gjallarhorn rocket launcher. But Bungie has plans to even the playing field a bit, as they've outlined in their latest Weekly Update. They're putting a special emphasis on Auto Rifles; previously, they lessened the effectiveness of these weapons in competitive multiplayer and in The Taken King, Bungie will make them more capable again.
As for the Gjallarhorn, the developer doesn't like that this weapon has become a requirement for Raid and Nightfall groups:
"What we did not intend, and what we unfortunately saw, was pick up Raid and Nightfall groups gating participation based on whether or not players had this weapon. Gjallarhorn was so strong that for many people it had become the only answer to getting through tough encounters, and therefore they were less willing to spend time with other players that didn't have it."
You can check out the full list of tweaks through the link above. If you're a little behind, here are the content details for The Taken King DLC (which Bungie is saying is more like a whole new game), and don't forget about that sweet PS4 bundle coming this fall.
