Destiny 2’s Solstice Of Heroes event kicks off next week, bringing some delightfully glowy armour

If there's one thing I miss about Destiny 2, it's the armour. I'm a firm supporter of the whole "you can't save the world if you don't look good" thing. What I do not miss about this game, however, is how much you have to grind to look that good in the first place. Destiny 2's Solstice Of Heroes event kicks off on August 11th,…

Destiny 2 has hunted down those pesky Beaver errors

If you've been plagued by 'Beaver' errors gnawing at your connection in Destiny 2, good news: the bug behind the recent Beaver plague has been fixed. Turns out, something was wonky with Valve's network setup, which they've now fixed. Beaver disconnections should now be a lot rarer, especially in the central and eastern USA. I casually say "something was wonky with Valve's network setup" but…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light’s icy new Stasis powers look great fun

While I'm still not convinced that getting pally with the forces of Darkness in Destiny 2 won't cause a second collapse of human civilisation, it does look great fun. A new trailer for the Beyond Light expansion shows some of the 'Stasis' abilities we'll somehow get from those presumed wrong'uns, and I was expecting to freeze enemies but I was not expecting to erect ice…

Destiny 2: Beyond Light has been pushed back to November

The Darkness might be an intimidating mass of deadly triangles, but Destiny 2 has more grounded concerns to worry about right now. As Bungie continue to wrestle with life under the Covid-19 pandemic, they've postponed the release of the game's next big expansion to give themselves more breathing room. Destiny 2: Beyond Light will now release just under two months after its planned September release,…

Destiny 2’s weird new gun turns enemies into orbs you can slam dunk on their mates

As we grapple to understand Destiny 2's looming spacepyramid threat, this week the enigmatic forces extended an olive branch in the form of a gun which... turns its victims into orbs you can pick up and dunk on their mates to murder them too? And this is to help us understand them? Great. We'll be having coffee mornings any day now, then. The new quest…

Destiny 2 is feeling real apocalyptic right now, and it’s great

After dragging its heels for a fair while, the 'living world' of Destiny 2 has really come alive again as Bungie start building to the next expansion. Four of its planets and moons will be removed from the game when Beyond Light hits, and the ongoing in-game events behind that are starting to get well doomy. As of last night, the vast and ominous pyramid…

Destiny 2 starts Moments Of Triumph event, opening raids for farming

Ahead of Destiny 2 shuffling five raids out of rotation next season, Bungie have relaxed restrictions on loot so you can fully rinse them before they go. Usually each character can only get drops from each raid once per week, but for the rest of the season these five can be repeated over and over for loot galore. This comes as part of the latest…

Destiny 2’s Xur is worth visiting again now he has better rolls

Every weekend, mysterious tentacle-faced merchant Xur pops up in a corner of Destiny 2 selling a selection of Exotic gear. For the past eight months, his stock has been a bit rubbish. He's sold fixed armour rolls with bad stats, see, which are useful if you don't have the item at all but worse than any random drop. Good news: Xur has started selling armour…

Destiny 2 has removed skill-based matchmaking for most PvP modes

Bungie have now removed skill-based matchmaking from most of Destiny 2's PvP Crucible playlists, by popular demand. What kind of a pubstomping monster wouldn't want matchmaking to factor in skill? Ah, it's a tricky issue. SBMM has become a semi-controversial topic in multiplayer games, and in Destiny specifically its knock-on consequences have included longer waits for matches and some real laggy laggers lagging up the…

Destiny 2’s new Exotic is mysteriously one-shotting bosses

The Season Of Arrivals started in Destiny 2 this week and while the whole season was kept a surprise up until launch, one arrival is a bigger surprise than the rest. Witherhoard, the new Exotic grenade launcher you can grab from the season pass track, will sometimes mysteriously spit enough damage to melt a boss. Most, if not all, of a raid boss's health bar…

Destiny 2’s new season seems more promising so far

Amid the megablast of news about Destiny's future yesterday, Bungie started the latest season, the Season Of Arrivals. After nine rocky months of decreasingly good seasons in Destiny 2, Season 11 feels like Bungie are starting to turn a corner. I don't know how I'll feel about Arrivals in two months, but right now I'm pretty excited about a lot of its newness. Not just…

Destiny 2 announces next three expansions, and plans to revive old D1 content

A busy livestream has brought a whole lot of Destiny 2 news today. Bungie announced the next expansion, named Beyond Light, for launch in September. Today they also start the next season, named Season Of Arrivals, and launch a new dungeon. Looking into the far future, they've a further announced two expansions for 2021 and 2022. And to keep the game manageable, they plan to…

I like that Destiny 2’s first live event was slow, but I wish Bungie communicated this better

On Saturday, Destiny 2 held its first live in-game event, inviting players to witness the destruction of a vast spaceship on a collision course with Earth. Perched on the gantries and rooftops of the Tower, we watched the ship looming large in the sky and... waited. What many expected to be a few minutes of fireworks turned out to be 90 minutes of watching projectiles…

Destiny 2 will finally blow The Almighty out of the sky today

It's about damn time. After months of preparation, Destiny 2 is ready to blow up The Almighty, the massive Cabal spaceship that's been threatening to smack The Tower all through this season. The fireworks kick off in a few hours - and in a new move for Bungie, it sounds like you'll be able to watch the calamity as it happens in what may be…

The Darkness vocalises its impending return to Destiny 2

Always acting, but never quite seen. It seems one of Destiny 2's most elusive antagonists is preparing to finally play its hand. Lurking in the shadows of Bungie's space-knight loot shooter, The Darkness have finally put voice to their long-awaited return by broadcasting an ominous hum on the Destiny 2 Twitter account. Whether as another season or as the game's next expansion, it may soon…

Destiny 2 quest for Felwinter’s Lie is fixed, and an easy way to get a great PvP shotgun

After a bumpy journey with daft amounts of grind and a halting bug, Destiny 2's latest quest, The Lie, can be completed. That's the one where our not-so-benevolent AI overlord, Rasputin, wanted us to grind Seraph Towers and shotgun kills. The final step brings a new bit of story, which is quite nice, and a new shotgun you really might want if you play PvP.…

I hope Destiny 2’s Titanic disaster rumours are as fake as they seem

One weirdly persistent Destiny 2 fan theory is that Bungie are planning to fully obliterate and remove one of the MMOFPS's areas, the Saturnian moon of Titan. It'll be a dramatic show of force from the Darkness sweeping through the solar system, so the story goes. There is no real evidence to support this but I've seen some folks start repeating it as a given.…

Destiny 2 capping gear levels doesn’t sound so bad, as long as Bungie reduce grind to get it

One of many changes planned for Destiny 2's next year is a time limit on how long players can keep boosting their gear's level to remain viable. Legendary-rarity weapons and armour will get one year to shine, and then they'll be left to fade away. Bungie say it'll make the game stay fresh over time, get players chasing new loot, and let them make things…

Bungie move the goalposts on Destiny 2’s new communal challenge

Just over a day after setting Destiny 2 players a new communal goal to grind towards, Bungie have made changes so it'll be finished a whole lot sooner. A new quest, named The Lie, starts out with a goal shared between all players: complete the seasonal Seraph Tower event nine million times. Given that most Seraph Tower attempts seem to end in failure, it is…

Destiny 2’s new communal goal for Seraph Towers looks unlikely

As is becoming tradition towards the end of a content season, Destiny 2 has set another big communal goal for players. This time, rather than dump all our leftover seasonal resources into a magic box or whatever, we're being challenged to complete Seraph Towers. A whole lot of Seraph Towers. This seems perhaps for just a cool reward rather than the big season finale, something…
