Destiny 2 Game Director Says “Snipers, Shotguns, and Fusion Rifles Need to Return to Glory”

After writing a long and detailed Destiny 2 “Development Update” post, which was published over on, game director Christopher Barrett took to Twitter and gave further hints at planned changes.

In a nutshell, Barrett said that Destiny 2 “needs more weapons that matter, both in power and the hunt to acquire them.” He specifically called out snipers, shotguns, and fusion rifles as needing to “return to glory.”

It’s not clear how exactly these weapons will “return to glory.” Some players are speculating the return of Primary/Special/Heavy loadouts, while others believe dramatic buffs are coming.

What changes do you want to see made to Destiny 2‘s weapons? Let us know.
