Back in the middle of December 2020, as Reddit user by the name dead is death, posted about a possible glitch happening with the gun Cold Front in Destiny 2. This submachine gun is a Kinetic weapon, but can still roll with the Dragonfly perk. Of course, this allows it to have an elemental explosion upon a kill, even though Kinetic weapons have no element. This raises a few questions as to what the perk actually does when using the weapon.
As one would imagine, this is causing technical issues which has led to Bungie needing to remove the roll in the next upcoming patch. Joe Blackburn, assistant director for Destiny 2, announced the perks removal on Twitter.
Swashbuckler is a trait that gives the weapon increased damage from melee kills and kills with whatever weapon it’s attached too. Fans of the game have given mixed responses to the upcoming change. Twitch streamer Gladd, replied to Blackburn asking what the point is of replacing the perk.
This isn’t the first time a weapon in Destiny 2 has had a bug, and will not be the last. It’s an issue that Destiny players have been dealing with since the original title was released.
