Destiny 2 has added another secret quest for a fancy gun

A new secret mission snuck into Destiny 2 with last night's update, leading to the kind of reward those good-time Guardians prize above all: an Exotic-class weapon powered by things we know are forbidden for very good reasons but can't resist because they make nice noises and lights. In the case of Outbreak Perfected, the new kinetic pulse rifle, it can shoot self-replicating nanites to…

Destiny 2’s festive fizzy pop will continue ruining PvP for weeks

Grenade-spamming Guardians giddy on magical spacepop will continue to muck up Destiny 2 PvP for the next three weeks, Bungie have confirmed, saying they're unable to easily disable the special event item that's causing trouble.

Destiny 2’s Revelry event celebrates spring and trashes PvP

Spring has sprung across the ruins of humanity's future, and those good-time Guardians of The Last City are celebrating the only way they know how: hanging decorations, goofing off, collecting big guns, touching any weird stuff they think might give them special powers, and shooting monsters in exchange for prizes. Destiny 2 last night launched its new spring event, The Revelry, sending players on an…

Destiny 2’s Arc Week brought an exclusive shock

Bungie last night kicked off Destiny 2's 'Arc Week', which is mostly fancy theming around a balance patch addressing underpowered electrical abilities and pointlessly rare drops. It also brought an actual surprise: players were getting Wavesplitter, a top-notch weapon that has so far been exclusive to PlayStation 4. Had Bungie escaping the clutches of Activision also meant they'd evaded the exclusivity deal? Are we getting…

Destiny 2 making frustratingly rare loot more common

Guardians still chasing godroll guns, rare loot for achievements and titles, or a deathray built from spacedragon bones should soon find themselves a little less frustrated, as Bungie plan to remove or reduce the randomisation that's stopping us from getting goodies in Destiny 2. The MMOFPS's weekly content reshuffle has given many players long and frustrating waits for specific activities to get items they want,…

Destiny 2 experimenting with story choices and consequences

Some interesting new bits trickled into Destiny 2 as the new season of paid Annual Pass content really starts rolling, including a quest where we get to pick sides - a tiny hint of a possible future with branching stories. While the consequences are minor right now, Bungie do tease that it "may impact future content." I'm up for that. 'Invitations of the Nine' quests…

Destiny 2’s Groundhog Day curse is a neat touch that’s easy to miss

For almost half a year, parts of Destiny 2's world have been trapped in a time loop, our actions and adventures having no real impact as the same events unfold every time the three-week cycle starts over. While rotating quests is standard for many MMOs, and indeed Destiny 2, the curse cycle of the Dreaming City is actually a story quietly unfolding. You may have…

Destiny 2 gets in The Last Word

A revered weapon returned in a big Destiny 2 update last night, the honking great hand cannon of legend, The Last Word. It may be the fancy headline feature, and quietly nudge parts of the story along too, but the update's also notable for a huge number of balance tweaks. Some abilities are toned down, some powered up, and some somehow made even worse, while…

After what was meant to be an exciting community challenge to solve a puzzle and unlock a new part of Destiny 2 turned into a frustrating grind, Bungie caved and unlocked it last night.

Destiny 2’s fourth Black Armory Forge has… not opened for business

The rediscovery and reignition of Destiny 2's fourth and final Black Armory Forge, the climax of the current season of paid content, has stalled because the puzzle to unlock it has players stumped.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Overwatch, Destiny 2 and Heroes Of The Storm

They must have been shipping eggnog, mistletoe, tinsel and other festive goodies to the Blizzard store in bulk, as they're kicking off seasonal events in multiple games today. Team FPS Overwatch and crossover MOBA Heroes Of The Storm are getting especially daft for the season, while Bungie are playing it a little more straight in shoot n' looter Destiny 2. Not that they haven't found…

Bring back Destiny 2’s big boss bug

Civilization has embraced the bug which made Mahatma "An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind" Gandhi deploy a nuclear arsenal. Movement bugs like strafejumping in…
