Destiny 2 Weekly Reset: New Nightfall, Challenges, and Rewards

Quick Links

Updated September 7, 2021: Currently in Destiny 2, fusion rifles continue to be the hot topic around the community, thanks in large part to the Season of the Lost mod known as Particle Destruction. While Fusions and Linear Fusions were always going to be improved thanks to the buffs each type recieved this season, the seasonal mod has taken them to a whole new level. With it equipped, players can apply a debuff up to five times on any enemy hit by a fusion or linear fusion rifle, thereby increasing the damage done.

The the mod has helped fusions like One Thousand Voices and Vex Mythoclast rise in popularity, fans have discovered that Hand Cannons have also become a damage monster. While Hunters gain the benefit of the reworked Lucky Pants exotic, Hawkmoon users have found a glitch that let's them reuse the Paracasual Shot. Essentially, the glitch allows users to continue shooting the high damage last bullet in conjunction with the hand cannon holster mod equipped on the leg armor.
