Game developer Bungie has set up the popular game Destiny 2 to be in it for the long haul, with new DLC and crossplay compatibility. However, the company has some new properties on the horizon, and we got a snippet of that with Bungie’s trademark of a game called “Matter” in 2018. Since then, we have not heard any other news about what is in store from the developer until now. In an interview with Japanese publication 4Gamer, Bungie Design Director Jacob Benton spoke about what the future holds for Destiny 2 and how the company plans to support the game for many more years. When asked about the possibility of Destiny 3, Benton simply elaborated on the plans for Destiny 2 and... Read more...
The last thing you want when splurging on a newfangled graphics card is to experience stuttering and other performance issues in games. Nevertheless, some Radeon GPU owners have been experiencing this very thing in Destiny 2 after the launch of the Beyond Light expansion. This has even been occurring on AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series. If you're affected by this, there are a couple of workarounds you can try. Well, technically there are three workarounds, if you count selling or returning your shiny new graphics card and buying an NVIDIA GeForce GPU instead. But now is not the greatest time to try such a thing—graphics cards are in short supply and thus very difficult to obtain, unless you're... Read more...
Destiny 2 raids can be an absolute blast to play with five of your friends. But what is better than taking down Taniks, the Abomination with six players? Taking down Taniks, the Abomination with 12 players! Destiny 2 players are currently loving a 12-player raid glitch and asking Bungie to make it a permanent feature. Raids typically allow for up to 6 players. However, the current glitch permits players to effectively merge two fireteams into one mega-team of 12 players. This can be done if one fireteam joins the other when the launch timer begins its countdown. Both teams can then join the same raid and wreak havoc.  Bungie is aware of the glitch and one Bungie Senior Community Manager... Read more...
Unfortunately, we have some bad news to present today for diehard fans of Destiny 2. Bungie just announced this afternoon that its next big expansion -- The Witch Queen – will be delayed until 2022. Although Destiny expansions usually launch during October, the first cracks in the armor appeared last year with the release of Beyond Light, which bowed in November. We'll give you just one guess for The Witch Queen's delay, and we're sure that everyone will get the correct answer. "With COVID-19 keeping us away from the office, and the large amount of work on our plates, we needed to move the date in order to make sure that both this year's updates and The Witch Queen were both...

Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen is well under way and players can already access a new exotic weapon. Dead Man’s Tale has thankfully dropped earlier rather than later. Here is everything you need to know about Dead Man’s Tale and the Presage Mission. **Warning: Major Spoilers Ahead** What is Dead Man’s Tale? Dead Man’s Tale is an Exotic Scout Rifle. Its exotic perk is “Cranial Spike” with which “chaining precision hits grant bonus damage and quickens reload speed.” This perk makes the weapon more useful against bosses and powerful enemies, and is fun to use once you get on a precision hit roll. There is also a slot for a catalyst, but that... Read more...
It looks like, “whether we wanted it or not, we've stepped into a war with the Cabal…” Destiny 2’s Season of the Chosen has arrived and it has already made a bigger splash than the previous season. Here is what you need to know about the Season of the Chosen.  Defeat Cabal War Lords on Battlegrounds The storyline for Season of the Chosen is so far focused on Empress Caiatl, the new leader of the Cabal and daughter of Emperor Calus.

Zavala, with the encouragement of Osiris, declined Caital’s offer. Guardians... Read more...
Today officially marks the last week of Destiny 2’s Season of the Hunt. Bungie has so far released little information about the upcoming season, but the internet naturally has a different plan. It was recently leaked that the next Destiny 2 season will be dubbed the “Season of the Chosen” and will be focused on the Cabal. The leak comes from a now-deleted tweet from Game Informer. The tweet featured Commander Zavala standing on what appears to be Nessus. Caiatl, the daughter of former Cabal Emperor Calus, looms over Zavala. A mysterious ship appears to have crashed nearby Zavala. This leak matches many of the hints that have been dropped by Bungie over the last few months. A... Read more...

Destiny 2: Beyond Light has been almost solely focused on the newest location of Europa. The Season of the Hunt has taken Guardians to the Tangled Shores and Dreaming City, but most activities on older locations have been neglected by players. Additionally, much of the gear that was issued in previous seasons will sunset in upcoming seasons. This system has therefore not provided Guardians with much incentive to engage with older content. Destiny 2 developers Bungie are thankfully making a few changes to make outdated gear and activities relevant again. Destiny 2 will soon reissue the Dreaming City's Reverie Dawn armor, Moon’s Dreambane armor, and a total of eight weapons. Season 13 will... Read more...

Where Is Xur Exactly? Simply, Xur is located on Nessus at Watcher Grave in the tree.

It is the holiday season which means that seasonal video game events abound. Destiny 2 is no exception and players have been grinding through the Dawning 2020 event. Unfortunately, progress for this event has been quite slow. Destiny 2 developer Bungie has therefore tripled Dawning Spirit rewards for the community “Share the Dawning Spirit” quest. The Dawning 2020 event is similar to previous Destiny 2 holiday events. Players must use Eva Levante’s oven to bake cookies for NPCs. There are two Dawning quest lines this year-- “Share the Dawning Spirit” and “And To All a Good Flight.” “And To All a Good Flight” is an individual quest which rewards... Read more...
Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion introduced something entirely new to the game -- a darkness subclass dubbed Stasis. Stasis is particularly different from the Light-based subclasses in that it can be customized through Fragments and Aspects. Beyond Light has introduced a handful of Aspects and Fragments, but Bungie has confirmed that they plan to add even more.  Luke Smith from Bungie recently stated in an interview that “Our intention is to add more.” He further noted that several Aspects and Fragments will be released over the next year. Players thankfully do not need to wait until the Witch Queen expansion to get their hands on these Aspects and Fragments. Smith further... Read more...
In case you don't already pick up on it, we're pretty big fans of Bungie's Destiny 2, and have posted a number of guides over the past few weeks specifically relating to Beyond Light. Today, however, Bungie has released its latest patch for the game -- labeled as Hotfix 3.0.1.2 -- that addresses a number of outstanding issues with the game. The hotfix also makes some adjustments to in-game weapons to help with gameplay balance. With respect to the Cryptolith Lure, players now have the ability to charge it twice as fast as before, which is critical to initiating a Wrathborn Hunt. In addition, it is now capable of storing five charges, which is an increase from the previous maximum capacity... Read more...
Destiny 2 is a game that is meant to be enjoyed with your friends online. However, that can be challenging when you are locked to a single platform, but that may be changing soon. In a blog post, Bungie, the developers of Destiny 2, affirmed that the popular game would be getting cross-play support sometime in 2021. Bungie has made moving from platform to platform easy with cross saves. The cross-save functionality allows anyone to save their characters, gear, and stats and simply login on another platform to download it and continue playing. What’s more is that players now have access to cross-generational play, so friends on older consoles can play with those who got their hands on an... Read more...

Here are some tips on how to prepare for the Deep Stone Crypt Raid. What We Know About the Deep Stone Crypt Raid Bungie has been tight-lipped about the details of the new raid.

Destiny 2: Beyond Light has finally arrived. The long-awaited expansion has been out a week and Guardians have been perfecting their use of the new subclass Stasis. The expansion’s storyline questions the nature of Light and Darkness, but it unfortunately does not fully hit the mark.

Guardians are sent to Jupiter’s moon Europa to determine how far the Darkness has spread in the solar system. The Guardian’s Ghost detects... Read more...
Destiny 2: Beyond Light is set to launch today and kick off a new era of the game. Destiny 2 developers Bungie hosted a live event yesterday to end the last “year” and transition into the next expansion. The Destiny 2 live event was a nice ending, but also featured a host of frustrating issues. Destiny 2 Live Event: Exploring the Streets of the Last City Most players did not know that Bungie would be hosting an end-of-season live event until recently. There had been some evidence that an end-of-season event was possible, but most players did not know that the event would occur until Luke Smith of Bungie tweeted that a “small event” would close out the season. Most... Read more...
The release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light is just around the corner. The expansion will usher in a wide variety of changes, from a new destination to a new subclass. Some of the new updates are not nearly as thrilling as a new moon to explore, but they will still impact gameplay. Destiny 2 developers Bungie recently released an update particularly focused on the future of Exotic weapons and abandoned quests.  Bungie has finally provided an answer on how players will acquire Exotic weapons that are connected to destinations that will be “vaulted” next season or retired quest lines. They have been tossing around various ideas on how both new and old players could acquire these Exotic... Read more...
The new Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion will be available in less than a week. The expansion was supposed to be released this past September, but was delayed until November 10th. This has allowed players to really experience all that the Season of Arrivals has to offer. However, does the Season of Arrivals have one last surprise before the new expansion launches? Many believe that an end-of-season Destiny 2 event will occur sometime this week. This speculation is based on several bits of evidence. First, Reddit user Leopard Avenger claimed four months ago that they had found a “Calamity Protocol” emblem. This legendary emblem is reportedly from an “End of Season Event.”... Read more...
