Destiny 2's first expansion, Curse of Osiris, has now launched, bringing with it a slew of new additions to the game - including, in one instance, a heavily-overpowered weapon that is wreaking havoc in the PvP game modes.
The Prometheus Lens, an exotic trace rifle, is a highly stable weapon with great range - and it comes with a laser that can tear enemies to shreds in just a few seconds, making it by far the game's most powerful weapon. Gamers have been vocal about the weapon on the Destiny subreddit, as laser carnage reigns over the current PvP arena.
Responding, Bungie confirmed that the weapon is bugged; although no further details are given, Bungie's Community Manager DeeJ promises that the issue will be addressed:
Prometheus Lens shipped with a bug. We’ll address the issue and talk solutions in ‘This Week At Bungie’ on the blog.— DeeJ (@DeeJ_BNG) December 6, 2017Although the subreddit contests that this week's Trials session - Destiny 2's hardcore PvP event - should be cancelled due to the bug, there's been no official word from Bungie yet.
It's not the first difficulty Bungie has faced with Destiny 2; recently it was forced to change its XP system when players discovered that taking part in shorter events scaled down XP gain.
