Destiny Will Balance Shotguns Soon

After two years of Iron Banner and Crucible matches where shotguns like the Matador 64 caused you to yell at your TV screen, the next update on Destiny will Nerf them. In a forum post, Destiny co-comunity manager Chris “Cosmo” Shannon revealed this response he received from the Sandbox team.


“We’ve heard the conversation about, and felt for ourselves, shotgun dominance (Yes, we see you Matador 64), but we feel strongly that our goal shouldn’t be to nerf them into the ground. Instead, we’re looking at solutions that could bring shotguns into a better state of balance with the rest of the guns in the game. In doing this, we would still want Shotguns to be effective and fun to wield. We could quickly and easily break shotguns and call it a day, but it’s important to us that we explore positive changes that can make Destiny better for everyone.”


The Dawning kicked off recently and brought back the Sparrow Racing League with a new Strike Scoring system that visually awards you for kill streaks, head shots, and many other actions. Three newly remastered Strikes like The Shadow Thief have also been added to the game

What other weapons need to be balanced? What weapon was nerfd too much? Let me know in the comments!
