Beyond Light arrives for Destiny 2 players tomorrow, and we already know that it'll bring a number of new exotics.
One of those, Cloudstrike, could be an ideal "boss killer", with the sniper rifle seemingly able to tear through enemies

Check out the exotics trailer below:
As we see, CloudStrike summons a lightning bolt when killing an enemy with a precision final blow.
That sounds great, but we'd argue that sustained precision hits are going to be more useful – particularly for boss battles.
Constantly hitting precision hits creates a storm which looks like it'll do even more damage, potentially even a debuff.
Interestingly, sniper rifles did receive some changes as part of Beyond Light.
According to a Bungie blog post:
Sniper rifles will now have aim assist of varying degrees, depending on your scope.
A lower zoom scope will have less aim assist, while a higher zoom scope will offer more.
Let's hope that makes the rifle easier to handle.
Destiny 2 Beyond Light: How To Get CloudStrike
Now that the raid has been completed, speak to Variks and the Exo Stranger and complete the quests they offer.
You'll unlock Europa Explorer I and Europa Explorer II, types of missions called "Sabotages".
They're easy to complete, and will unlock the Weekly Empire Hunt playlist.
There are four levels: 1180, 1220, 1250 and 1280, but Cloudstrike is a randomly dropped reward regardless – so it may be worth your while playing the easiest version just so you can fly through it.
If you don't succeed, jump back in and try again.
