Hand Cannon is Getting Buffed

Eric Osborn was just live with IGN from Gamescom and confirmed that the Hand Cannon (and Pulse Rifle, but who cares) are getting a buff. He said they weren't as powerful as they want, and that people were too drawn to the auto rifle, so they are getting a buff. I am pretty excited, as the hand cannon appeals to me on many levels, but almost all that found were not worth using over the auto rifle. Edit: Here is the link:[url] http://www.ign.com/videos/2014/08/15/destiny-a-peek-into-competitive-multiplayer-ign-live-gamescom-2014 [/url] As you can see from the comments, the interviewer was horrible, but stick with it.

    • Sweet. I loved the hand cannon in the beta, made me feel like a space cowboy.

        • This pleases me. I always thought the Hand Cannons looked really cool and sounded powerful when fired but sadly their performance was lackluster. I am very happy they are buffing them and I am curious as to what they are doing to make them better. Like some one has said already, Hand Cannons (especially when I am a Hunter) makes me feel like a space cowboy. HI-HO SPARROW, AWAY!!

        • I don't mind the Buff for hand cannon at all, It makes it easier to not be biased to a single type of gun. I just hope they don't nerf auto rifles or scout rifles.

          • This makes me so happy to see because near the end of the beta I realized that I really enjoy handcannons more than anything. It takes more skill, it's more fun, and every shot needs to matter.

            • If all the pulse rifles are being buffed, some with the full auto upgrade will be pretty intense.

              • All the hand cannon needs is a boost to reload. 90% of my Hunters deaths in the beta were while I was reloading

                • Cool I saw some HC on the wiki not sure if it was legendary or exotic, but it looked like a mix between a .44 magnum and a desert eagle. I thought it was sick.

                          • Awesome! The scout rifle is still gonna be my weapon of choice, but I would love an awesome (and actually effective) hand cannon as another option.

                          • Thank goodness! I enjoyed using the hand cannon in the beta but I was usually out beaten when they pulled out their auto rifle. Also, I got a pretty good pulse rifle but it sucked compared to everything else! So happy day!

Although I used a Scout Rifle with 51 attack damage and then sometimes I'd switch to my Hand Cannon with the same attck damage just to mix things up. But I really like the Hand Cannon (especially in the Crucible).
