Bungie’s Condition 2 it’s in the middle of the Season of Plunder, which means players are grinding the Star Atlas, repeating the King’s raid, and more. Pass balance in the middle of the season are in the works it should involve “under and over performance.”
Auto Rifles and Trace Rifles are getting a “big bump” while Adaptive Frame and Precision Frame Pulse Rifles will get a “small bump” in critical damage. The quality of the Pulse Rifles is slightly reduced to “low to mid-status.” Specials like Jade Rabbit and No Time to Explain are getting nerfs for their ease of use.
Other notable changes include a nerf to Glaive damage resistance, a small tweak to Rocket Launcher blast radius, a redo for Sniper Rifle flinch, and more. Check out the current list of changes below.
