Destiny 2 Hotfix 3.2.0.3: Stasis nerfs, Lost Sector rewards fixed, and more

Bungie has moved a Season 15 balance change to the latest Hotfix as the Stasis complaints on PvP were getting out of hand.
Destiny 2 has a huge surprise in store for players with the upcoming Hotfix 3.2.0.3, as Bungie has moved a batch of balance changes intended to hit with Season 5 coming three months before planned due to heavy criticism from PvP players against the Stasis subclass.

Amongst the biggest nerfs coming to Stasis, which has dominated every PvP activity in the game due to the amounts of crowd-control and freezing abilities, becoming a nightmarish experience for those looking to enjoy Crucible, Iron Banner, and Trials of Osiris, is the fact that non-Super freeze only lasts 1.3 seconds, however, you can't break out of them.

On top of this, the bonus damage while using Special-weapon, Heavy-weapon, and Light-ability has decreased from 50% to 5%.

There are a plethora more changes, so take a look at them down below.
