Destiny 2 Outlines Changes To Graviton Lance, Other Exotic Weapons Changes Coming

Published

on

Bungie is hyping up an upcoming set of balance changes and it includes updates to the game’s exotic weapons and armor pieces, according to an official announcement.

Bungie used Graviton Lance, a void pulse rifle, as an example and described the changes as a “tuning pass” that is “focused on adding and/or increasing player Power spikes.” Version 1.1.4 is expected to arrive on March 27th.

Regarding the Graviton Lance, Bungie referred to the item as “all spectacle, not enough utility” before outlining the forthcoming changes:

To target the first pain point we reduced the recoil of the burst, added some aim assist, and changed it from three rounds to two. This still plays into the fantasy of a low-damage gravity-neutralizing round forming a projectile tunnel for the last bullet. It also allows us to ensure the damage per burst is at a competitive level for PVP engagements. In fact, it gives Graviton a slight mathematical edge against other pulse rifles.

On the second feedback item, we did some tuning to the ragdoll body. We made it so that rather than violently flying backwards and likely out of range of a potential splash damage opportunity, the defeated opponent floats back and up. Then we made the explosion bigger, increased the damage, and added some void field projectiles that seek out any remaining targets.

It’s important to note that these kind of mass changes aren’t expected to for every item and the level of change will certainly vary from item to item.

There are a number of items that won’t be getting any attention in the update such as Merciless, Telesto, Wardcliff Coil, MIDA Multi-Tool, Colony, Legend of Acrius and Vigilance Wing.

“Some of the above perform well without needing changes, while others, like the Vigilance Wing Pulse Rifle, are already benefitting from the tuning changes planned for Update 1.1.4,” said Bungie. The studio noted that every other exotic “has had some degree of power or utility increase.”

Worm Game

Google has launched one final game for the Stadia console as a “goodbye” ahead of it’s official shutdown this year.

The game is “Worm Game” which Google says was “a humble title we used to test many of Stadia’s features, starting well before our 2019 public launch, right through 2022” and adding “It won’t win Game of the Year, but the Stadia team spent a LOT of time playing it, and we thought we’d share it with you. Thanks for playing, and for everything.”

The game is quite simple as players will be tasked with controlling a worm as it tried to eat fruit that appears on screen. As the fruit is eaten, the worm gets bigger, which is a lot like the retro game ‘Snake’, but with a lot more to it.

Enjoy.
