With the launch of Curse of Osiris, there’s plenty of new stuff in Destiny 2, a video game in which players travel through space resisting the urge to spend money to change the colors of their helmets. There’s also a gun that’s just about wrecking everyone.


Meet Prometheus Lens, a brand new exotic that has taken the mantle from Vex Mythoclast, Thorn, and MIDA Multi-Tool as Destiny’s most overpowered weapon. It’s a trace rifle that shoots laser beams and can melt any other player in less than two seconds.

It’s safe to expect a Prometheus Lens nerf at some point in the near future, because it’s making the Crucible borderline unplayable. What’s ironic is that many hardcore Destiny players have been calling for a lower time-to-kill (TTK) in PvP. Not like this, though. Not like this.

Why do they refuse to balance pve and pvp separately Jason? The gun is gonna get turned into a noodle launcher for the sake of pvp balance *smacks forehead*
