Gameplay is way slower. Not sure where I stand on that yet - it's made for much more of an emphasis on gunskill and positioning, so my KA/D has been just stupid high in most of the games we've played so far.
Continuing the slowness theme, ability cooldowns feel like they take forever. I don't mind that so much in PvP because Destiny 1 at the end of its lifecycle had devolved into 'Ability Spam Simulator.' For PvE though, it's kind of ruined the power fantasy. "Welp, used my grenade, guess I'm waiting a whole freaking minute before I can use it again..."
In terms of guns I've found most useful, a pulse rifle paired with an auto rifle or hand cannon has been working out pretty well. The fusion rifle is fucking magical.
Only other gripe (and one Sharpe knows all too well, sorry homie) is that somehow Bungie's design concepts for the Titan snap every trigger in my brain. The wall is just not a fun mechanic to fight against and virtually everything in the Striker kit is still so frustrating to die to.
