Destiny 2’s Prometheus Lens is super broken & OP (and Bungie is fixing it)


I want one.

Destiny 2‘s newest Exotic weapons, the Prometheus Lens, is super-duper broken and overpowered and Bungie’s already aware of it, the developer confirmed.

Since the release of “Curse of Osiris” yesterday, players have found that the Exotic Trace Rifle practically shreds anything in player versus player (PvP) play. Don’t believe us? Watch these thousand or so videos.

The weapon’s Prismatic Inferno trait allows it to fire “a solar trace beam that generates a damaging heat field that grows while the weapon continues to fire,” according to the gun’s description. Indeed, it’s the ever-growing damage that seems to break things.

Thankfully, Bungie’s David ‘DeeJ’ Dague has confirmed that the weapon is bugged. Bungie’s now promised to “address the issue and talk solutions” in an upcoming blog post.

Until then — time to obtain this Exotic and go nuts in Crucible, eh?

Destiny 2 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
