Bungie Acknowledges that the Sleeper Simulant is OP in Destiny 2's Gambit Mode

Stimulant Simulant.

If you've been playing Destiny 2 in the wake of the Forsaken expansion launching earlier in September, chances are you've dabbled with the excellent Gambit mode. The unique new mode has one problem, however: the Sleeper Simulant.

The Sleeper Simulant is one of the most powerful weapons in all of Destiny, and in a mode like Gambit where players can kill opposing team members while "invading" them, this can be a problem. In the tweet just below from the official Bungie account, the developer acknowledges complaints about the elite weapon.

I've played my fair share of Gambit since Destiny 2: Forsaken launched ealier this month, and 9 times out of 10, the invading opposing player will be using Sleeper Simulant. Bungie are almost caught between a rock and a hard place here, since while they can't just outright nerf one of the most popular weapons in Destiny 2, it certainly seems like an increasing amount of players are frustrated with the overuse of the Sleeper Simulant.

We'll be reporting back on any future changes that Bungie makes, either to the Sleeper Simulant itself, or to Gambit. For now though, you can head over to our Destiny 2 Gambit guide, for all the essential tips and tricks you need to dominate at the new mode.
