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

Before that, PC owners will get their hands on the Destiny 2 beta starting Monday, August 28, for those who pre-ordered the game or have an early access code via Blizzard's Battle.net.

While Destiny 2 will take player and group skill rating into account at all times, it will be less of a factor in Quickplay. "Some of these learnings will be on display in the PC Beta".

TWEAKED: Globally reduced the time it takes to charge your Super This was a big change that came directly from your feedback during the console beta. This time, it's the player's speed and not his or her skill that will be the gauge on how they can search for Quickplay games.

Destiny 2 fans planning on jumping into the game's PC beta don't have long to wait before they can sink their teeth in.

We recently learned that Destiny 2 may not function with certain capture, comms and performance tools on PC, both during beta and at release. The trigger for the Mercy rule has also been extended to prevent it from shortening matches as often. Bungie will also improve skill calculation in Countdown to better show how players will perform against their opponents.

In addition to these major multiplayer adjustments, Bungie has implemented a long list of fixes, such as the resolution of several glitches.

Let's start with the infinite super glitch, which we reported on back in July.

Air strikes have also pummelled rebel-held parts of the Jobar district of Damascus and the adjacent district of Ain Tarma. The fourth zone, in northwestern Idlib province, has yet not become active.


Another issue that went undiscovered until players found it in the console beta was this glitch that allowed players to throw infinite grenades while playing as a Voidwalker. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".

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", Hamrick said. That has been bumped up from 75 points to 100 to grant more time to play and use their abilities. Like the console beta, it didn't have much danger of ruining anything in the PC beta, but it's good to know that it has been fixed for the main game. As a part of our security efforts, we have designed Destiny 2 for PC to resist all attempts from external applications to insert code into the game client.

TWEAKED: Increased Power Ammo drops in PvE This is something we had felt internally and have been slowly tuning up over the last several weeks.

What do you think of the tweaks to Destiny 2 ahead of the PC beta and launch so far?

Power Ammo will be found more regularly, and can also be farmed from yellow bar enemies.

Destiny 2 releases on September 6, 2017 for PS4 and Xbox One, and on October 24, 2017 for PC.
