In my opinion recoil is fine as it is, if you could map enemies with SMGs and other similar guns then there would be no use for scout rifles, long range guns would be completely useless. I think people are forgetting how recoil felt in D1, either that or they've simply never played the game before, recoil was much more intense especially on handcannons. To reinforce my argument I'd like to point out that nobody uses scouts on PC and that's because there's no reason to. Also if you're the one guy out of the entire population of D2 who uses scouts on PC please don't meme me.
More of my RNG based hand cannon shots landed in D1 than in D2.
Can't think of any way that would be possible unless you're using some really scuffed handcannons.
Just seems like the RNG of "ghost bullets" in Destiny 2 hates me more than in Destiny.
