Bungie Buffs 17 Exotic Weapons in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep

Bungie has announced that Destiny 2 Season of the Deep will feature many new changes, one of the biggest being buffs and changes to 17 Exotic Weapons. Some Exotic Weapons are outperformed by the more meta Exotic Weapons, and to make some of the neglected options more fun, Bungie has buffed these 17 Exotic Weapons in Destiny 2.

Here are the 17 Exotic Weapons receiving changes and buffs in Destiny 2:

  • Adaptive Ordnance
  • Graviton Lance
  • Jade Rabbit
  • The Manticore
  • Lumina
  • Heartshadow
  • Worldline Zero
  • Sweet Business
  • Legend of Acrius
  • Tommy’s Matchbook
  • No Time to Explain
  • Skyburner’s Oath
  • Salvation’s Grip
  • Bad Juju
  • Fighting Lion
  • Thunderlord
  • Winterbite

And now, here are the individual changes and buffs made to these 17 Exotic Weapons in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep:

  • The Adaptive Ordnance Exotic trait is now more viable.
  • The buffs made to Graviton Lance make it more powerful and put it more in line with Revision Zero’s 2-burst tuning.
  • The buff to Jade Rabbit makes the state of the Exotic perk easier to track and increases the reward for precision.
  • The Manticore’s buff makes it more viable to use. Previously, the Exotic perk would leave you vulnerable, but now, using The Manticore to fly around makes more sense.
  • Lumina’s buff makes it more in line with the Ace of Spades.
  • The buff to Heartshadow makes it easier to proc the Exotic perk and, when the damage buff is active, you Weaken enemies which is a huge buff considering how powerful Weaken is.
  • Worldline Zero needed a buff to keep it feeling Exotic since Bungie is buffing Swords.
  • Sweet Business is now more fun.
  • The buffs to Legend of Acrius make it even deadlier than it already is.
  • Tommy’s Matchbook only received a buff to the Catalyst, but it is still a great buff to get.
  • The buff to No Time to Explain makes the drone work against Barrier Champion shields.
  • Skyburner’s Oath is getting a buff that adds more Scorch.
  • Salvation’s Grip got a major rework. There are two firing modes now and there is a new perk that reloads the magazine after shattering crystals.
  • Bad Juju now has a Pulse Rifle recoil, making it a lot easier to handle.
  • Fighting Lion was dealing too much damage to red-bar enemies. Bungie fixed this bug, but it still gets the 40% damage bonus for being an Exotic Primary weapon.
  • Thunderlord is one of the best Exotic Machine Guns right now thanks to the Season 20 Machine Gun buff. However, there was a bug that allowed it to deal an extra critical hit against Divinity bubbles.
  • Winterbite launched with an exploitable damage bug which has been fixed. The damage has been compensated.

Destiny 2 Season of the Deep will bring many changes to a few Titan, Hunter, and Warlock Exotic Armor pieces, but these Destiny 2 Season of the Deep Exotic Weapon changes are something all players can look forward to.
