PvE players will likely get disappointed with another set of nerfs to their favourite Destiny 2 arsenal.

Bungie decided they have had it with the weapons that dominate  Destiny 2 's PvE activities in usage and are going to nerf or change a bunch of them in Season 19.

The usual suspect, Divinity, is getting slapped with a nerf to the Weaken it applies as it will now be just 15 per cent instead of 30.

Unfortunately, a lot of content has been balanced around this weapon's power so the nerf is going to have unexpected adverse effects on the players.

The full list of Exotic nerfs is as follows:

  • Reduced Divinity's weaken from 30 to 15 per cent (still self-buffs to 30)
  • Reduced Arbalest body shot damage to match Lorentz Driver
  • Gjallarhorn -  Reduced primary rocket's impact and detonation damage by 25% (Wolfpack Rounds are unaffected)
  • Reduced Forerunner base damage from 40 to 37, and crit damage from 72 to 67
