This week Destiny 2 players discovered an exploit that allowed them to reload their super ability in seconds without killing any enemies: all they needed was a Telesto pulse rifle and one grenade.
The operation described above by Destiny YouTuber Ehroar required players to fire first rounds on the ground. Telesto shells do not explode on impact, so you can press the trigger seven times to put all its particles without bursting. Then you will throw your grenade – the grenade effect area works best – and the game will count every particle destroyed by your grenade as the enemy killed pointing to your super bar.
Exploitation works in PvP as well as in PvE, according to Ehroar, which potentially gives players a huge advantage over the competition: if you were recently killed by a player who is constantly popping up super, they may be using this feat.
It works best with the Ashes to Ashes bonus, which gives you extra super charge in killing grenades, ideally double stacked bumper fins and a classy fashion item. With both equipped, all it took was a few presses of the trigger and one grenade to get the super. The only limiting factor was reloading your grenade, and you could bypass it by hitting a second-weapon bomber: it fills your grenade meter with each kill. It works ash-free ash, but it just took a little longer.
In a Twitter account for Bungie's help, he said yesterday that the weapon was temporarily disabled and would post additional updates as the development team investigates.
