i feel like the nerf was just way into the ground even with the sniper reserves its still to low when the majority of players did this quest we were 390 and it was a 400 level activity it was not easy. Nobody in the community was complaining about this weapon neither were they complaining about sleeper and they nerfed that as well why fix something if it is not broken?
The only reason they nerfed the ammo on those weapons was to extend the time it takes to clear activities with said weapons. Just about everything Bungie does is related to them trying to squeeze more logged in time out of the minute number of people still playing D2. Nobody has to “complain” for this to happen.
