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…

Destiny 2 started the Crimson Days event with yet more downtime and another rollback

For the second time in a fortnight, Destiny 2 was last night taken down for hours of emergency maintenance after accidentally wiping some players' spacewallets of Glimmer, Bright Dust, and other spacecurrencies and crafting materials. Turns out, the fix last time didn't fully hold. Bungie have once again rolled back characters to restore lost valuables, which means anything your spacemen did between 4:30pm and 6:30pm…

Have You Played… Halo 2?

Halo 2 came out just after I turned 20, and I bought an Xbox to play it. This was a big deal. I’d always been really careful with money, but I’d been living away from home for two years by then, and my discipline was starting to slip. Until that point, buying anything that cost more than £99 had been an agonising, days-long process of…

This Destiny 2 exploit is giving Warlocks endless flaming swords

Destiny 2 is having a pretty tough time with swords. Just as Bungie announce plans to rework bladed weapons entirely, a new problem emerges with swords of a more supernatural nature. Dawnblade-specced Warlocks have discovered a relatively simple exploit allowing them to burn through their super indefinitely, letting them spit flaming blades 'til the sun goes out. Brilliant, until you're facing four of them on…

Bungie are about to sharpen up Destiny 2’s swordfighting

Slash. Slash. Slash. I adore my collection of Destiny 2 swords, but they're not exactly complex beasts. For Honor, it ain't. It seems Bungie have also noticed this blunt angle with blades. The boffins over at sword headquarters have shared some sharp changes to blades arriving with Destiny's next season, promising a more pointed experience when bringing a blade to a gunfight.

Destiny 2’s Empyrean Foundation brings a quick way to farm Timelost weapons

The last two big additions on the calendar for Destiny 2's Season Of Dawn arrived today: a new final boss in The Sundial and, more practically, an easy way to farm squillions of the seasonal weapons and get your dream rolls. Saint-14 and Osiris today launched the Empyrean Restoration effort, asking Guardians to donate leftover Polarized Fractaline to help charge the Tower Obelisk so it…

Destiny 2 needed to roll back characters after emptying spacewallets

Last night's new Destiny 2 patch had the unintended consequence of deleting many players' hard-ground cash and upgrade materials, causing Bungie to take the MMOFPS offline for nine hours while they fixed it. Their solution was to roll characters back to their state before the patch, which has the unfortunate side-effect of wiping out everything players did between the patch launching and the emergency maintenance…

Destiny 2 players have solved a vast secret map made of thousands of parts

After five-and-a-half days, Destiny 2 players have solved the new mystery in the Corridors of Time and found new loot. This was a huge communal effort, with innumerable hundreds of players sharing thousands of map fragments to build a route through an alien time machine. The map is ludicrously huge. The effort is remarkable. I followed the newly-revealed route this morning and can tell you…

Game devs and players continue banding together to help the Australian bushfire crisis

Australia is still burning, but over the last couple of days they've actually had some rain! While this is a big help to certain areas, there are still 83 fires blazing around the country, and there's a lot of people and wildlife still in trouble. It's good job then that there are even more game devs, companies, and communities banding together to help out our…

Destiny 2 has a new mystery deep in the Corridors of Time

In the middle of a relatively straightforward season of straightforward content, Destiny 2 has quietly snuck in a big puzzle that has sent players exploring the Corridors of Time. We last went through there to rescue our old pal Saint-14 from his fated death, and now I'm starting to wonder if changing history was the best idea. (Of course it was: he's a great mate.)…

Game developers big and small are offering donations to aid Australia’s bushfire crisis

Bungie, Infinity Ward and Ubisoft are joining the list of developers donating money to help combat the bushfires devastating Australia. It's been announced that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare will be donating money from purchases of special "Outback Relief" packs, while Destiny 2 will get an exclusive t-shirt with profits going towards the country’s firefighting efforts and animal rescue and conservation. Ubisoft Australia aren't creating…

Destiny 2 will fix Wish-Ender’s damage bug next week, and it’s about time

One of Destiny 2's oft-forgotten Exotic weapons, the Wish-Ender bow, has been unusually popular this entire season thanks to a bug. Since the Season Of Dawn started in December, Wish-Ender has been dealing almost triple its intended damage, making it deadlier than most weapons in many modes. After an odd silence, Bungie now say they'll fix it next week. Some players aren't best pleased because…

Destiny 2’s latest Exotic quest is unusually simple

Last night, Destiny 2 launched a quest for season pass holders to get a new Exotic-rarity gun, Devil's Ruin. It's weird. Many recent Exotic quests have involved grinding through a whole lot of busywork, and this mostly skips that. You can get Devil's Ruin in twenty minutes. After just one Sundial run then a short object hunt, your reward is a shiny new gun and…

All I want for Christmas is my Saint-14

With snow a-falling, sleigh bells a-jingling, and cookies a-baking, 'tis the season to remember the man who sacrificed his life so humanity might be saved: Saint-14. The legendary Titan of Destiny 2 died after centuries trapped fighting robots who ultimately built a machine to murder specifically him and only him, but today we can save him. As the Season Of Dawn rolls on, from today…

Telesto is the besto at breaking Destiny 2

Like a scampish nephew in a Christmas romantic comedy who keeps popping up pulling pranks on his career-obsessed spinster aunt to remind her that maybe she does want a family and children of her own after all, Destiny 2 gun Telesto has once again developed a bug making it ha-ha-hilariously overpowered. Telesto fires a spray of sticky proximity mines instead of energy zaps, see, and…

Feeling low? It’s okay. Join us in our gaming happy places

It's been a tough weekend for a lot of people. And there's a tough season coming up, too. Despite Saint Nick's PRs working over time to make us all cheerful, Christmas can actually be a sad and stressful time, can't it? Listen: it’s ok to be sad. It's fine. You feel what you feel. So, I asked the RPS hivemind what their gaming happy places…

Local Co-op for Halo on PC: answers at last

Ever since the Master Chief Collection was announced for PC back in March, fans have been clamouring for the Xbox version’s classic split screen local co-op to be included in the PC port. But so far, it seems they’ve had no luck. In a Reddit AMA at the time, 343 Industries’ community director Brian “ske7ch” Jarrard said it was a “tricky” issue, and that 343…

Destiny 2’s Season Of Dawn has begun, returning to Mercury

Our old pal Osiris has once again done something daft in Destiny 2, so here we come to fix his time-travelling mess. Season Of Dawn, the second season since Shadowkeep, started today and it sends us to Mercury to deal with a giant weird Vex machine Osiris slapped together. He wanted to save his friend Saint-14 from the Infinite Forest, he accidentally gave the Cabal…

Halo: Reach review

I'm bad at liking old shooters, because I struggle to see through the ways they've been surpassed. Modern games look better. They feel better. They have bumslides. They are generally obliged to develop their protagonists into something more than a number and a helmet. These are all problems for the nine-year-old Halo: Reach, but I've ultimately enjoyed myself despite them. There is wisdom in the…
