Particle Deconstruction has its downsides in Destiny 2 PvE

Seasonal Artifacts have provided a lot of debuffs over the years with mods like Breach and Clear and many more. Particle Deconstruction does that with the Wayfinder’s Compass, but it only helps players with Fusion Rifles. It also poses another challenge for players as they might not use them in Grandmaster Nightfalls without Unstoppable Champions. Plus, it doesn’t do well at long ranges, and players will need to play with a range of up to 25 meters with this weapon.

Fusion Rifles can damage a lot in Season of the Lost, however, it has its disadvantages, and this is where Withering Heat comes in.
