Arcstrider Is Completely Broken Following Destiny 2’s Arc 3.0 Update

Arcstriders are a bit too powerful as of Destiny 2's Arc 3.0 update.

Destiny 2 has just launched its Arc 3.0 update, and things feel a little unbalanced, especially when it comes to the Hunter’s Arcstrider subclass. Since the new content has dropped, multiplayer has become pretty hard for anyone that runs into someone with this build, as it’s got an insane amount of power, durability, and stamina when its Super is activated.

To be frank, it’s pretty broken. If you need a good example of this, then just take a look at the post from the Destiny 2 subreddit right down below, courtesy of user hazman61.

As you can see, the user is able to deal and take an insane amount of damage while in their Arcstrider form. In the clip, the Hunter is able to rack up over a dozen kills while their Super is active, tanking an insane amount of damage, including a Nova Bomb and two straight-on shots from a Golden Gun.

On top of all this, you’ll also notice that the Super lasts about 30 seconds, which is an insane amount of time even without the other issues noted. Yes, the fact that they have Raijus Harness, but it is still completely broken when combined with the damage and damage negation that it’s able to pull off.

What do you think? Is the Hunter’s Arcstrider 3.0 build insanely overpowered for Crucible? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below.
