Destiny 2 has a new powerful Hunter Stasis ability in Shatterdive

The Shatterdive is one of the three aspects of the Hunter Stasis subclass in Revenant. This ability allows players locate and dive to locations to shatter frozen targets and Stasis crystals in a 6 meter radius. Guardians can do this by activating it from mid-air.

Players can do a lot with this aspect using something like Glacier Grenade. By throwing it on an opposing player, Guardians can freeze them for a while. Then using Shatterdive, they can instantly kill them off without any problem. In a recent Reddit post on r/destiny2, the community discussed how powerful this meta is in PvP right now. While. it takes skill to throw the Grenade and hit enemies, many believe that this makes the life of Hunter players quite easy in the crucible.

Is it really overpowered though?

However, many Guardians have also noted the opposite of that in the PvP modes of Destiny 2. Fans wrote comments about how they can easily dodge the Grenade by jumping or just moving away. They have stated the Grenades will hit them sometimes. However, out of position players can get caught by a Shotgun as well, which isn’t really considered to be an issue. It can be annoying for Guardians when the Grenade hits. But, many of them have stated that this ability doesn’t cause a lot of problems to receive a nerf.
