TLDR: there's a lot more recoil while using a controller, mouse and keyboard users enjoy significantly less recoil on the exact same guns. Multiple videos providing proof, along with confirmed statements from Bungie developers on the topic of recoil.
If you're from Bungie, please return controller recoil to either Destiny 1's console recoil or make it the same as PC.
The video proof, using The Recluse
First, check light.gg for the recoil direction of The Recluse. You'll find that The Recluse has a perfect recoil direction score of 100, meaning the weapon's recoil should be perfectly vertical or very close to it.
Light.gg – The Recluse
Now watch these examples of The Recluse being used with a controller, and being used with a mouse & keyboard.
Now see The Recluse being used on PC with a mouse+keyboard:

Media reports, and Bungie official statements on recoil
“For instance, there’s no recoil on guns on PC because recoil on the controller feels really good… With a mouse and keyboard, you don’t want the mouse moving without you moving it, so recoil doesn’t feel good, so there is no recoil on PC."
“On console we have just tonnes of recoil, it’s part of what makes the guns feel so visceral and so real and solid. On PC that just translated to your chasing around your gun with the mouse, so we’ve adapted that recoil system to be more PC centric.”
My question is, I understand why recoil doesn’t feel good on PC, so why exactly would it feel good on console where aiming with thumbs is much harder than hand and arm? Also why increase the recoil for console Destiny 2 when Destiny 1 recoil is about the same as PC Destiny 2?
Contrast that with what Bungie’s Lead Developer Lars Bakken says about the Destiny 2 experience on all platforms, during an
interview with WCCFtech:
Please revert the recoil back to either Destiny 1 console recoil, or make it the same as on PC. This is outrageous. There's a window of opportunity to do so with the release of the next generation consoles in 4 months.
