Big changes are coming to Destiny 2 in Season 19, as developer Bungie outlined details this week on how destination materials will be scrapped in favor of a more simplified economy before next year’s Lightfall expansion launches.

Some of these changes are small and likely won’t be felt in regular PvE content, but for PvP players, they will be more significant. In its weekly blog, Bungie detailed these changes and some of the highlights include increasing the ease of use for high-impact auto rifles, making them feel better to shoot within their optimal ranges, and buffing their stability stats.
