In its weekly update, Bungie dropped a bombshell on players who preferred the controversial Divinity tracking rifle, among other smaller details about how guns will change ahead of the Lightfall expansion. Divinity has become a polarizing weapon in the Destiny 2 community, with some players calling it the crutch that has become too dominant in high-level PvE content.
Traces of rifles main privilege is a debuff that weakens enemies by up to 30%, and when you have a few marksmen on your team that can deliver critical hits, this weapon can take down even the toughest enemies. Bungie said that it will reduce weapon effects to 15% in Season 19 so that early warriors can focus on using a more diverse arsenal in combat. Community manager Cozmo added that this nerf has been in the planning phase for quite some time, long before the Destiny 2 community started updating Divinity.
The Div’s change was planned before the heated debates on social media began.
You can give Bungie constructive feedback, but don’t harass anyone in the community for having a different opinion.

Bungie explained that Adept weapons earned from these challenging encounters need to be equal to or better than their craftable versions, and that coming to Lightfall, players can expect to see weapons. gas Adept with enhanced perks dropped from the new raid. While this doesn’t mean craftable Adept raid guns are coming, it does mean that some of the best guns in the game can be obtained from the Master Lightfall raid.
The high stats of an adept weapon combined with the powerful perks of a crafted gun can make for a potentially devastating piece of equipment in your arsenal.
