Destiny 2 players are no strangers to uncovering hidden bugs and exploits that can give them an edge against raids and dungeon bosses, or allow them to farm unlimited in-game currency. Recently, some players have stumbled upon a game-breaking bug that allows them to melt bosses nearly instantly.
This bug in question is related to Shotguns in Destiny 2 and the ability to deal way more damage than intended when swapping two shotguns. However, it’s also been claimed that this bug doesn’t work every time.
For this bug to work, you need The Fourth Horseman exotic shotgun and a Pinpoint Slug frame legendary shotgun — something like Gunnora’s Axe (the Iron Banner shotgun) or First In, Last Out. First, you need to equip the legendary slug shotgun and swap to The Fourth Horseman exotic shotgun.
After swapping the weapons, exit the menu as quickly as possible and start shooting. This might take some practice but If done correctly, you’ll see the boss’ health bar lose a ton of health. You can watch a couple of video clips of this bug in action below.
In practical terms, the bug allows players to dish out an astonishing amount of damage to bosses in a fraction of the time it would normally take. Keep in mind that it’s best to have some sort of debuff applied to the boss to take full advantage of this bug. Bungie has not yet commented on this bug or disabled any weapons related to it at the time of writing.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this in Destiny 2. In fact, just recently, there was a very similar bug where an exotic weapon did an insane amount of damage.
We are at a point in Destiny 2 life cycle where seeing new bugs and glitches is not a surprise anymore. There have been a lot of conversations in all parts of the community about Destiny 2’s current technical state and how it’s getting worse and worse with each major release.
Destiny 2 Lightfall is now available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
