Weak reissued weapons from Dreaming City and the Moon in Destiny 2

Few weeks ago, the developers announced the return of some of the weapons Dreaming City and the Moon in a This Week At Bungie blog post. At the time, fans liked the idea of bringing old classics of the game with new perks for them to grind. The Dreaming City and the Moon weapons arrived last week with a lot of fanfare.

The old weapons had some great perks, with some God Rolls being quite powerful in the game. Unfortunately for fans, the developers sunsetted them which rendered them useless for endgame content. Fans expected to see similar or better performance from the latest variants when it arrived on Destiny 2 last week. But the new perks for the weapons made them weaker than the older versions.

Bungie Senior Community Manager Dylan “dmg04” Gafner recently tweeted about the situation. He asked the community for their feedback on the new perks added to these weapons. Additionally, he also asked them about the old perks they missed seeing in the new variants. Gafner’s comments have certainly excited some fans on the prospects of seeing these weapons becoming better. But he also stated that all their wishes might not come true.

In the end, it seems like Bungie is trying their best at fixing a pretty messy situation. Fans love these weapons, and they want to use it in different PvE modes. By bringing back some of the good old perks, fans would definitely grind them to gain the God Roll, which could scare the life out of any opponent.
