Now that Hotfix 188.8.131.52 is out and Hard Light is dethroned (I won’t miss you), we need to talk about what happened and which weapon you’ll want in your Energy slot for the Crucible.

Contributing author: Joel; updated 3/27/15 Ionized polymer synballistic attack platform. The system’s lethality is dynamically robust across tactical spaces. Hard Light is an Exotic Auto Rifle. This weapon can be acquired as a random reward from the Crucible or PvE content, or from Xûr for 23 Strange Coins. 7/10 6.4/10 The good: High rate of fire, Volatile Light perk is fun. The bad: Impact and range are low. Conclusion: Needs more Impact and/or a non-Kinetic damage type to be truly effective.
