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.
