“In Season 22, we have a substantial shakeup coming to the weapons sandbox in the form of zoom. We will have more details to share closer to release, but we want to briefly touch on what’s going to happen at a high-level:

The initial changes are going to enforce something we’re calling range compression, with two main goals:

  1. Reduce the variance between the optimal engagement ranges of our mid-range weapons (Auto Rifles, Pulse Rifles, and Hand Cannons).
  2. Slightly reduce the average engagement range in Crucible by pulling in the maximum damage falloff distances of many weapon types.”



Primary Weapon TypeOld Base ZoomOld Base + RangefinderNew Base ADS Modifier
Sidearms13.20 – 16.8014.30 – 18.2013.20 – 18.00
SMGs12.60 – 22.4013.86 – 24.6414.42 – 23.52
Auto Rifles*17.20 – 33.2018.92 – 36.5218.28 – 39.53
Hand Cannons22.40 – 35.0024.64 – 38.5024.00 – 37.50
Pulse Rifles25.50 – 39.1028.05 – 43.0125.50 – 39.95
Aggressive Hand Cannons25.20 – 39.2027.72 – 43.1227.00 – 40.50
Lightweight Bows45.0049.5045.00
Precision Bows54.0059.4054.00
Scout Rifles60.00 – 90.0066.00 – 99.0060.00 – 90.00

*Note: Auto Rifles have the widest variance in available zoom values in the current live game, between 16 and 20 base. For the purposes of the above chart 16 zoom was used as the base value since it is the most prevalent, but 20 zoom ARs were reaching 41.5m at 100 range.

Other things to look forward to in Season 22:

  1. Hand Cannons in PvE will be improved with faster reload speed and increased damage against minor and major enemies.
  2. Sword guard will undergo a significant overhaul.
  3. Some Exotics, like Le Monarque, will be balanced, and Touch of Malice will receive significant buffs.
  4. Weapon perks like Bipod, Envious Assassin, and Under-Over will be buffed.

Have a good weekend!

Until next time.
