Agreed, buff Hard Light's impact/damage, remove the screen shake, give it damage drop off like other ARs if needs be and alter the button that changes the element or make it so we can sticky it at least. Hard Light is my absolute favourite AR even with all the issues it has, since D1. Just give it some love Bungie, make it HARD!
So basically you wish for normal AR with changeable elemental. Then go and wish for it, don't ''fix'' that ain't unbalanced.
I’m in favour of reducing the screen shake, giving it a damage drop off to compensate, making it so you can stickie the element you need. And a buff to its damage. At the moment it’s no where nearly op. And it can be improved without causing it to become op. There are plenty of op weapons in the game so buffing Hard Light to a decent AR won’t break the game.
I agree on all points. It’s my favorite too. Wish they would make a change.. googling for the topic bring a up tons of different subs all with lots of support.
