Destiny 2 update 2.1.4 – Supers and subclasses

Sandbox

Super Tuning

Hunter: Gunslinger

  • General
    • Golden Gun Super

    • Explosion damage increased from 150 to 250
    • Now deals self-damage
    • Our goal for AoE supers of this type is that they incur self-damage when activated too close to a target. We consider Blade Barrage not causing self-damage a bug, which we are now addressing.
    • In other words, Hunters will know how Warlocks feel when they throw a Nova Bomb into a wall.
    • Fixed an issue in which Blade Barrage projectiles could track allies

Hunter: Nightstalker
