Destiny 2 has a massively overpowered weapon in the Lorentz Driver

Players might have known how much damage the Lorentz Driver can deal. It deals 497 for headshots and 166 to the body. This comes close to most High Impact Snipers in Destiny 2. Plus, players can do a lot more with Charged with Light mods, and deal a ridiculous amount of body damage. Additionally, players also know about its intrinsic perk in Lagrangian Sight. With this, the Lorentz Driver can mark targets with an automated targeting system. Final blows on these targets generate a telemetry pattern, which grants bonus ability energy when picked up.

Is it finally time to nerf the weapon?

Guardians also have to face the EM Anomaly perk as well. This perk can create an implosion that pulls nearby targets and damage them with additional detonation when players hit a precision final blow. Along with that, the gun doesn’t have a lot of flinch, while the weapon has a zoom level of 2.4. Pair this with the high aim assist and magnetism, and players have a God weapon in Destiny 2 PvP.

In the end, it has too many great stats, perks and gimmicks that players can’t resist using in PvP. With this weapon, players can go a long way in modes like Trials of Osiris or Iron Banner. However, many believe that the developers made the Lorentz Driver a tad too powerful. So, the developers at Bungie might want to look at some of its abilities and nerf them for a much more level playing field, because currently it can do a lot of things quite well.
