The Destiny 2 exotic auto rifle Hard Light has been around for a long time, and hasn’t been especially noteworthy for most of it. It has a lot going for it, including no damage drop-off, elemental damage types you can toggle between, and ricocheting rounds that are nasty in confined spaces. None of which mattered, because for most of its life span it’s been widely considered unusable due to a nauseating screen-shake effect when firing that made it miserable to aim at any kind of range. 

An adjustment earlier year that reduced that effect, though, and coupled with the impact of an overall buff to auto rifles it very suddenly became a go-to gun–especially in PvP. A little too much of a go-to for its own good, as it turns out: Today Bungie announced that it’s going to dial Hard Light back a bit with a nerf that will go live tomorrow as part of hotfox 2.8.1.1.
