Significant changes have been made to weapons in the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion. Developers have briefed and listed all the changes that are coming to weapons. A bit of fine-tuning has been done in how damage is applied to different targets in PvE environments.
A few weapons and archetypes have been buffed. PvE damage for Auto Rifles has increased by 25%-30% depending on combatant rank. PvE damage for Scout rifles has also increased by 18%-36% depending on combatant rank. You can read the complete weapon changes by heading here.
Destiny 2 PC will move to Steam on October 1 for Shadowkeep launch. If you are already playing on PC, you are required to link your Destiny accounts on Battle.net and Steam to get your Guardians ready for the upcoming Shadowkeep expansion.
