With the launch of Lightfall in Destiny 2, Bungie somehow made Cabal Threshers insanely powerful to the point where it one-shot-kill players with its solar tracking rockets, even in open-world activities. Since then, players have been asking for a nerf to these annoying gunships and it looks like the community’s prayers have finally been answered!

With a new hotfix that is scheduled to go live later this week on Thursday, March 23, 2023, Bungie plans to fix the issue where the Cabal Threshers were doing way more damage to players in the game, TheGamePost has learned.

Last week, Bungie pushed another hotfix that was said to have fixed the Winterbite exotic glaive bug where the weapon was doing more damage to targets, which resulted in players defeating bosses in raids, and dungeons almost instantly.

Turns out the bug was not completely fixed and the weapon is still broken in Destiny 2. It looks like this will get fixed with the same hotfix this week.

Destiny 2 Cabal Threshers Are Getting Nerfed

A Reddit user pointed out that the Cabal Thresher’s damage is tied to the player’s in-game framerate and found out after testing that Thresher’s damage output at 60 FPS appears to be 130% of the 30 FPS damage output.
