Bungie Is Replacing The Cold Front Dragonfly Perk Due To Technical Issues

In December 2020, Reddit user dead_is_death posted about a glitch with the Cold Front gun and its Dragonfly perk in Destiny 2. Despite the Cold Front submachine gun being a Kinetic weapon, it can still roll with the Dragonfly perk.
