Today, Bungie will make Destiny 2's brilliantly overpowered Prometheus Lens "way too weak" instead

"Sure it's fun, but..."

After a weekend of Destiny 2 where its PVP Crucible mode looked like a laser light show, Bungie is calling time on the game's overpowered Prometheus Lens gun.

Pew pew.

As Wesley wrote yesterday, the ridiculous nature of Prometheus Lens has lit up Destiny 2 - literally - over the past couple of days.

Alas, Bungie will now reing in its all-conquering reign and now nerf the weapon - hard. Instead over being hugely powerful, it will now be hugely weak.

"Sure, it's fun, but it breaks the Crucible for anyone who wants to use a different weapon," the developer wrote on Twitter. "Given the short window we had to make an emergency fix, it will be adjusted to be way too weak."

Prometheus Lens will rise again in January, then, but never again burn quite so bright.
