Destiny 2’s Exotics Need an Overhaul Before Lightfall

Destiny 2‘s The Witch Queen era brought along several fundamental changes to the gameplay loop and the players’ ability to create their own builds to tackle the type of content they want. This is achieved thanks to a healthy mix of sandbox updates to weapons and how they function, as well as the Light subclass reworks that aim at making each of the elements more akin to Stasis from Beyond Light through Aspects and Fragments instead of skill trees. While these changes are fantastic additions to Destiny 2‘s complex sandbox, it’s worth looking at the state the game’s Exotics are in at the moment before launching the Lightfall expansion next year.
