Telesto breaks Destiny 2 with overpowered PvP exploit

Destiny 2 players found out a weird glitch that allowed them to earn orbs a lot faster than usual. They realized that the Telesto can be used to create orbs at a high rate with the Thermoclastic Blooming mod. Players can find this mod on the last slot of the seasonal artifact of Season of the Lost in the Wayfinder’s Compass.

To use this exploit, players will need to select Top Tree Dawnblade Warlock Subclass and equip the Thermoclastic mod as well. Then in the game, players can generate a lot of orbs by shooting two Telesto projectiles on the ground and then use the Solar ability of Celestial Fire on it. The mod then spawns a ton of Orbs of Power as it does for every Solar or Stasis attack.
