TBH I kind of feel like higher difficulty exotics should be stronger than other exotics.
Quest exotics should be more powerful than world drop exotics.
And raid exotics should be stronger than every weapon in the game.
It just makes sense to me that the more difficult an activity is the more powerful the reward should be.
To many people complained about gatekeeping and so bungie decided “EQUAL POWER FOR ALL no one player shall be more powerful than the other even if they worked much harder then the other player and if people find a good weapon that the normal people cant get then nerf it to the ground.”
