Humanity is a self-destructive species, and Destiny 2: Forsaken is credible evidence that we’re probably doomed. Fortunately, Forsaken is also the best update possible for Bungie’s MMO-lite shooter, adding fantastic new modes, new weapons, new missions, and new purpose to a game that had fallen flat a few months after launch even amongst its most hardcore fans.So there’s some good news, at least. To understand how it highlights the flaw in our species’ brain patterns, though, we need to look back at the launch of Destiny 2, and its simplified loot system. Bungie’s game is ostensibly about shooting — chunky, explosive, great-feeling shooting — but it’s just as much about loot. Where the first game (only ever released on console) spat out random gear with random perks at seemingly random intervals, its sequel adopted a vending machine system: tokens were earned for playing the game, and could be exchanged for a small pool of weapons and … [Read more...] about Has Destiny 2 been improved by its updates?

Destiny 2: Forsaken is ushering Bungie's latest sci-fi shooter into its second year with a smorgasbord of new missions, modes, enemies, equipment, and more. Prominent among the new additions is Gambit, a unique Destiny 2 mode that blends PVE and PVP together into one seriously fun competition.Most of the time in Gambit, you won't be shooting other players directly. But you're always competing with another team of Guardians, so you'll want to bring your A-game to every match.

The final boss of Destiny 2's Spire of Stars raid, the impossible-to-pronounce Val Ca'uor, is one of the most difficult fights in Destiny's history. Players have to defend multiple objectives and activate several plates with precise timing, pass energy orbs around like a game of high-stakes hot potato, ride tractor cannons into space and dunk on warships, and cram as much ass-kicking as possible into a narrow DPS window, all while wading through a never-ending river of adds. It's nuts. Even experienced, max-level raiders struggle to beat the Spire of Stars consistently, so imagine how difficult the fight would be if your entire team was unable to use voice chat to call out the fight's many stages and commands. That's the challenge Destiny 2 clan BAM Optical Raiders took on, and earlier this week, they triumphed over Val Ca'uor. Here’s how they did it.Some responses edited for clarity and length."It took us about 20 attempts in four weeks," Jason, the founder of BAM Optical … [Read more...] about Meet the deaf Destiny 2 players who raid using a custom-made comms app
