Destiny 2 Update Slightly Changes Falling Guillotine And Fixes Lots Of Little Bugs

One of the coolest new weapons to come to Destiny 2 in the Season of Arrivals is the Falling Guillotine, a huge blade that looks like Cloud Strife’s Buster Sword and can be spun in a circle like you’re imitating Link from The Legend of Zelda. Falling Guillotine does a ton of damage to enemies and is a favorite for eliminating big boss-type creatures at the moment–and it seems part of what made it so good was a bug in how it dished out damage. Destiny 2’s latest update does away with the bug, but thankfully, Falling Guillotine seems relatively unscathed.

Bungie outlined the details of its new Destiny 2 patch, Update 2.9.1, on its website, and the patch fixes a whole bunch of bugs. One of them was the fact that “Vortex Frame swords” like Falling Guillotine weren’t seeing their Heavy attacks ending properly–so they were dishing out more damage than they should have.

That bug has been squashed, along with a bunch of others. The good news is, despite what should effectively be a nerf to Falling Guillotine, the sword is still fully capable of ravaging enemies, including the champions who appear during the Contact event. That’s a favorite way to use the sword right now, and it still works beautifully.
