'Destiny 2' PC beta: Everything Bungie changed since the console beta

'Destiny 2' PC beta: Everything Bungie changed since the console beta

With that in mind, Bungie is gearing up to drop some changes with said beta.

Sandbox Designer Josh Hamrick has also offered a list of tweaks that have been made in light of the console beta; mostly glitch fixes to tackle infinite Supers, infinite grenades and the handsome Warlock Glide glitch.

Competitive: Matchmaking takes more time to introduce you to players that are closer to you in skill with a good connection.

Several other details were discussed that were unable to be reported after Edge Magazine was asked to keep them on the down low, but the majority of the discussions in the article seemed to paint a positive picture for Destiny 2. PC Beta players will also experience increased in the damage caused by a grenade in the game's PvE. They're also upping the Control winning score from 75 to 100.

Matchmaking for the Competitive mode will focus on putting Guardians of a similar skill level together. Skill calculations in Countdown have also been improved to better reflect your performance.

As detailed by Crucible Design Lead Lars Bikken, the developers have been keeping their eyes on player's activities in the console beta and have used what they've learned to further tailor the multiplayer experience - in particular, online matchmaking. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".




Supers and grenades were also mentioned, and whilst they recharge faster than the beta, it seems we'll be encouraged to recharge them more quickly through aggressive play: an example given was a Warlock exotic chest that lets you hover in the air (sounding a little like Empyrrean Bellicose) where kills whilst hovering will quickly recharge your grenade.

FIXED: Warlocks now have the same Melee Range as all other classes With the exception of where perks directly increase their range, Warlocks will punch like the rest of us. Our PC friends will get a chance to experience a world with consistent base melee ranges. However, before the scheduled launch, the game developer will roll out changes to the game. "In the console beta, the "worth it" part wasn't quite there yet".

Destiny 2 PC beta changes have been revealed by Bungie.

TWEAKED: Increased Grenade Damage in PvE Increased damage helps Grenades feel as powerful as they should facing hordes of alien combatants and, more specifically, makes the longer cooldowns more palatable.

"The PC beta has been updated with our new values and will provide much more power ammo in PvE than what was found before". The beta will then open to everyone on Tuesday, August 29, and run through Thursday, August 31.

Destiny 2's director Luke Smith will give the PAX West opening keynote later next month on September 6 for consoles and September 24 for PC.
