Destiny 2 steps up its fashion game with transmog in Year 4

As any good Guardian knows, Destiny 2 isn't just a jargon-filled sci-fi loot 'em up. It's just as much, if not more so, a far-future fashion show. But in a game about constantly trading out new gear, keeping a fresh look has always felt a little contentious. This week, Bungie revealed that Year 4 will introduce a transmog system to help you store your favourite…

Destiny 2 players are time-travelling through Tower glitches

There's something delightfully in-fiction that, isn't there? A rogue band of Destiny 2's space knights breaking through the physical boundaries of their home to discover an alternate space, unlocked from time? You could've plucked that straight out of the Grimoire. But these Guardians are very much real, a set of curious players who, through a glitch in the Tower's geometry, may have caught a sneaky…

Destiny 2’s seasonal events will soon stick around all year long

What the hell is going on in Destiny 2? Is a question I ask myself pretty much every time I jump back into Bungie's space-wizard adventure. So much has happened since I last played full-time, and worse, so much is locked to the annals of history - seasonal content that'll never return to Destiny 2. But that impermanence may be about to end. To stop…

Destiny 2 has tweaked Hard Light, the disco-spamming gun that’s dominated PvP

If you've played Destiny 2 PvP this season, you have almost certainly been cut down by Hard Light. And then again. And again. The Exotic auto rifle became real strong after buffs this season, and has been statistically the most-used gun in Crucible. It's a recognisable problem too, because it spits colourful lasers bouncing off walls and all over - not a subtle gun. Thankfully,…

Destiny 2 having special merch unlocked by in-game accomplishments is neat

As much as I think Destiny 2's Guardian Games is a disappointing grind-o-rama, I must concede that the event's merch is cool. For each of the three classes, Bungie are selling a little supporter's pack with a scarf, a felt pennant, and an enamel pin. I don't buy merch but even I will concede that's pretty neat. Bungie are good at merch in general, and…

Destiny 2’s new event does not have the oomph this season needs

Last night saw the start of the Guardian Games in Destiny 2, a new three-way competition between Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks to, in Bungie's words, "test your skills in a series of daily class challenges" and ultimately "prove that your class reigns supreme". In reality, the competition is just another set of bounties in a game already too focused on bounties. Guardian Games is a…

Destiny 2’s Guardian Games aim to prove, once and for all, which class is best

It's about time we worked out which Destiny 2 class is the good one. Next week, Bungie's space-wizards, stellar warriors and, uh, moon hunters are taking part in the Guardian Games, a limited-time event that has each class battling out for new gear, snazzy guns, and the chance to win bragging rights over their Guardian compatriots. Don't worry, though. The best Destiny class is still…

If you too are trying to do home workouts with bottles of water and bags of sugar for weights, this might get you pumped up: a mixtape from Destiny 2 combining throbbing beats with the motivational words of Lord Shaxx. The Shaxxercize tape is a wee Easter egg in one quest from the new season, hidden on a shelf in the office of Commander Zavala,…

Google Stadia is helping Bungie keep Destiny 2’s lights on during Covid-19

Google Stadia might still be struggling to find its place in people's living rooms. But for one studio's home offices, it's becoming an invaluable piece of tech. After Covid-19 hit their home state of Washington pretty hard, Destiny 2 developers Bungie have explained the beefy laptops and cloud streaming workarounds that aim to keep Guardians fighting while working from home.

Feature: Distance makes the heart grow socialer

Video games to play while you’re self isolating and social distancing

Unless you're in one of those international versions of Big Brother that are still going on, you've probably noticed that we're in the midst of a pandemic of something called the Covid-19 virus. I can tell it's serious because my dad's American girlfriend isn't allowed to visit him, which means he's bored and phoning me in the middle of the day. Haha, I joke. But…

Destiny 2 has started Season Of The Worthy

A new season has started in Destiny 2 today, bringing a new existential threat to the human race and new weapons to beat it back. This time, baddies riled that we broke their star-destroying superweapon are retaliating by straight-up crashing the miles-long spaceship into Earth. Rude. So here we are in Season Of The Worthy, powering up the defences of an ancient AI named Rasputin…

Destiny 2 fashionistas are thrilled and shocked by next season’s premium looks

Eververse, the premiere Destiny 2 fashion house, last night revealed its spring collection of street wear for Season Of The Worthy. Reactions from fashionistas have been loud and charged. I adore this collection, welcoming the option for some more casual duds, even if the Warlock outfit in the middle is so ludicrously, wonderfully, decadently uncasual (a look I think works for the class). The big…

Destiny 2’s Season Of The Worthy is about stopping a giant spacegun from crashing into Earth

The next season of Destiny 2 starts next week, and Bungie today revealed more of what we'll be doing in the Season Of The Worthy and why. Turns out, the dregs of the Cabal who survived our latest drubbing have a spiteful last-ditch plan to straight-up crash a miles-long superweapon spaceship into Earth. That'll be a problem. So off we'll go, powering up the defences…

Destiny 2’s new seasons have “too much FOMO”, the game’s director concedes

The director of Destiny 2 has dropped another of his sporadic 4000-word thoughtdumps reflecting on the state of the MMOFPS, its successes, and its failures. One big problem Luke Smith acknowledges is that the latest seasons, starting with Season Of The Undying, create a disappointing "feeling of ephemeral private activities and rewards that go away" rather than the exciting "evolving world" they'd wanted. Bungie will…

Trials Of Osiris is coming to Destiny 2 next season, and it’s gonna be sweaty

Guardians, it's time to build your sweatiest, most shameful loadout: Trials Of Osiris is coming to Destiny 2 next season. The 3v3 PvP mode is returning from the first Destiny, once again challenging players to run a gauntlet of increasingly tough matchups to claim loot with serious bragging rights. The announcement came overnight after players finally completed the communal challenge to donate 9,777,777,700 Polarized Fractaline…

Oh hang on, Destiny 2’s best gun is getting buffed

While some players are griping about Destiny 2's weapon balance changes coming next season, Bungie have missed a trick by burying the big news: Fighting Lion, already the game's best gun, is getting buffed. Is it a huge buff? No. Is it a welcome buff? Absolutely. Alice, is Fighting Lion really Destiny's strongest gun? Look, I said best, not strongest. Hand on heart, I adore…

Destiny 2’s next season will shake up snipers and The Last Word

Bungie still haven't even revealed the name of the new Destiny 2 season starting in three weeks, let alone what's new in it, but they are opening up about what it'll do to the old meta. On top of the sword changes discussed a few weeks ago, they have big plans for weapons including sniper rifles, long-range fusion rifles, and the exotics Lord Of Wolves,…

Destiny 2 will stop making you get new armour every season to use new mods

Some much-needed changes are coming to Destiny 2's 'Armour 2.0' gear system next season to reduce grind, most notably (to me) opening up the seasonal mod slots to also accept armour mods from the previous season and the next. This means you won't need to replace your gear every season if you want to use the new mods. As someone who plays too much damn…
