Destiny 2 Makes Grenade Launchers Too Powerful, Disables Them

Season of Looting has a nice but difficult start, and there is no better example of this Lot 2heavy grenade launchers. Almost all of them have been temporarily disabled just a day after the new update after a glitch was discovered that caused them to do more than double their normal damage. The move comes just before the community race for Friday’s returning King’s Fall raid.

Destiny players love Aztecross and others started noticing the glitch shortly after season 18 went live. Grenade launchers were buffered in the latest patch, but some dealt far more damage than the promised 10 percent. The exotic heavy grenade launcher Anarchy and a few others did 150 percent or more instead. As a result, some of the game’s weakest Legendary weapons suddenly became some of the strongest.

Here is Aztecross‘ video breaking it down:

I’ll be honest, I’ve had a lot of fun messing around with my chain reaction Tarnation during Ketchcrash runs for exactly this reason. Guns I wouldn’t normally touch suddenly shot down yellow bars in a single shot. It felt… nice. But it wouldn’t last long either. The massive damage glitch would have obviously thrown a wrench in the King’s Fall raid race scheduled for Friday, so to prevent Bungie from knocking out almost every heavy grenade launcher in the game until the next hotfix instead.

It’s a pretty drastic measure and while understandable, it still kind of sucks. Normally, a single weapon or piece of equipment can be disabled if something doesn’t work as intended. That’s what Bungie did yesterday with the Icefall Mantle Exotic Titan Gloves. Ono player discovered shortly after season 18 went live that they could combine it with Titans’ new Arc 3.0 thruster dashboard to start an infinite superglitch. Not surprisingly, Bungie took it offline. Now however, it’s an entire weapon archetype that times out. huhoptically not for too long.

It’s far from the only glitch this season so far. There have also been some issues surrounding new activities to properly record progress and allocate funds. In those cases, Bungie recommends that players wait for the timer to put them back into orbit before taking off and activity. In addition, if you do not earn new map fragments if there is no space in your inventory. Instead of going to the postmaster, they will never show up. I learned that the hard way.

If you want to experience these triumphs and tribulations for yourself, Lot 2 and all its extensions are currently free for the next week on PC and console.
