The AR is a bullet hose, the PR is a high RoF/low Impact archetype, the SR is decent, the Hand Cannon is meh, the Sniper is low Impact/high RoF, the Shotgun is low Impact/high RoF, the FR is high Impact/long charge time, there's no Sidearm, and the Heavies are slightly altered but still decent. Almost every gun was made to be the most useless archetypes currently in the game. TL;DR Bungie turned Y2 Osiris gear into Y1 Iron Banner gear, minus Timur's Lash, Felwinter's Lie, and Efrideet's Spear (the only actually redeeming guns of the whole set.) So yeah, this kinda kills my excitement for Trials. In fact, probably not doing them because of this.
They are designed to be good pvp weapons..almost everyone in y1 used the vog sniper and it's high rof/low impact
