Overpowered New Gun Dominates Destiny 2 PvP

With the launch of Curse of Osiris, there's plenty of new stuff in Destiny 2, a video game in which players travel through space resisting the urge to spend money to change the colours of their helmets. There's also a gun that's just about wrecking everyone.

Meet Prometheus Lens, a brand new exotic that has taken the mantle from Vex Mythoclast, Thorn and MIDA Multi-Tool as Destiny's most overpowered weapon. It's a trace rifle that shoots laser beams and can melt any other player in less than two seconds.

Here is what it's like to play Crucible in Destiny 2 right now (via r/DestinyTheGame):

It's a problem:

Bungie says it's bugged:

It's safe to expect a Prometheus Lens nerf at some point in the near future, because it's making the Crucible borderline unplayable. What's ironic is that many hardcore Destiny players have been calling for a lower time-to-kill (TTK) in PvP. Not like this, though. Not like this.

    Haha... Maybe one day they'll just be honest and admit they miss/blatantly ignore glaring balance issues.

    The game desperately needs weapons like the Mythoclast, year one thorn and year one Last Word. Special powerful and harder to obtain weapons and exotics give the game spice. This flattened out balancing garbage is what's killing the game.

    i have the gun and started using it after it was used on me. i went from getting maybe 1-3(at best) kills per game to 17 per game along with easily completing the double kill challenge.

    From what i could see, everything was fine until until you lost your shields, once that happened you were basically insta-gibbed. but i will say this, the gun is stupidly op against players, but exactly as weak as coldheart in pve and also extremely ammo inefficent just like cold heart. why use trace rifles when other autos hit much harder and dont chew through ammo as much
