There’s a larger variety of Power weapons, with few choices for Kinetic weapons. That is disappointing to Guardians who wish to use extra of the brand new weapons collectively. This problem is additional uncovered by three of those four weapons solely being accessible in both Trials of Osiris or Iron Banner, leaving just one Kinetic Legendary weapon, Extraordinary Rendition, accessible from the PVE exercise, Battlegrounds.

Guardians eager to capitalize on the weapons Season of the Chosen has to supply could discover The Palindrome Handcannon or the Retrofuturist Shotgun to be highly effective additions to their arsenal. Even with Extraordinary Rendition being one of many few Kinetic Legendary weapons accessible from Season of the Chosen, many Guardians are discovering it to be a worthy addition to their Kinetic slot choices.
