In general I don't like nerfing as a solution to the weapon balancing problems in this game. That being said, balancing IS a problem. There is always a meta in this game and right now, as a casual PvP player, I find it kind of irritating that the PvP pinnacle weapon meta is dominating PvP and PvE. It seems like every YouTube video I watch features recluse and mountaintop including guides for the CoS raid. I have already stopped playing PvP because quickplay had been taken over by the pinnacle weapon meta. Trophies for elite players is fine with me but pinnacle weapons shouldn't widen the skill gap. Recluse is just an example of a larger problem. There are so few viable weapons. The fact that the crucible pinnacle weapons are the meta right now just compounds the problem because they are so difficult for most players to get. When Ikelos SG was the best DPS option I felt like I had to use it all of the time. At least it was available to everyone albeit through rng. Don't nerf the "OP" weapons. Tune them down if necessary but tune other weapons up so that more weapons are viable. OP weapons are only labeled OP because so many other weapons are useless in comparison. They aren't necessarily OP. I would like to be able to use whatever weapons suit my play style or mood in that instance and not feel like I'm using a bb gun. Variety is a good thing. Isn't it?
