Destiny 2 Update 3.2.0: Silence & Squall nerf, Whisper of Torment bugfix, and more

Bungie is ready to launch Season of the Splicer, an update that brings balance changes to some annoying abilities.
Destiny 2 Update 3.2.0: Silence & Squall nerf, Whisper of Torment bugfix, and more

Destiny 2's Season 14, also known as Season of the Splicer, is right around the corner, with Bungie unveiling the pre-patch notes for Update 3.2.0, which will go live this upcoming 11th May at 10:00am PT/6:00pm GMT.

Hunter mains will receive a slight slap on the wrist this time around, as their Stasis subclass will get nerfed, particularly the Silence & Squall super, which will have its blast radius reduced.

Moreover, the bug that allowed Titans to trigger Whisper of Torment by standing in an opponent's Barricade will be gone with the release of this new patch.

Without further ado, let's dive deep into what Destiny 2 Update 3.2.0 has to offer.
