Even after receiving a nerf when Shadowkeep launched, Recluse is still way too good for a primary weapon. It dwarfs every other primary in the game in killing potential. There is no situation or encounter where this weapon isn't top tier in ALL of Destiny 2. Looking at some stats from warmind.io, you can see that the difference in usage between Recluse and every other weapon in the energy slot is stupidly large: Raids: Garden of Salvation: 97% Crown of Sorrow: 87% Scourge: 81% Last Wish: 75% Other Top PvE Activities: Pit of Heresey: 88% Nightfalls (Not Master, which I assume would raise this number): 41%-47% Gambit Prime: 59% Gambit Classic: 54% In Quickplay (via Destinytracker) it has a usage of 8.56, almost double that of the next best option Jade Rabbit. From playing about 80 hours of IB this week, I can say that almost all of them had a Recluse in them at some point. (Most of the time compared with Mountaintop btw). Look, it's fine if you like the weapon and like the overpoweredness of it. But I think it's reign needs to come to and end to allow for more flexibility with loadouts.
Dude, you don't even play the game. 🤔
