Destiny 2 fans are excited that the first Grandmaster Nightfall of the Season of the Lost will be available today. However, Grandmaster Nightfalls cannot be accessed by all players as Guardians need a minimum power level of 1345 to be able to enter it. This is what you need to know about increasing your Power Level in Destiny 2. These tips are helpful whether you are preparing for a Grandmaster Nightfall, are a newer player, or simply want to level up your characters.

If it is broken, the Destiny 2 community will find it and likely exploit it. This is especially true at the beginning of a new season when there are new weapons and armor along with buffs and nerfs to existing gear. Two Destiny 2 Exotic armor pieces have recently been disabled in some game activities. The first exotic are the Hunter Radiant Dance Machines boots. This exotic is new to Season 15 and is one that can be obtained as a random drop by completing Legend and Master Lost Sectors. The perk on these boots is as follows: “Dodging near enemies allows you to dodge additional times for a brief period.” Hunter Radiant Dance Machines boots allowed Guardians to dodge an obnoxious number...

The “epilogue” of Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer has finally arrived. While the overall epilogue storyline is hardly a surprise, many believe they have spotted an important hint about the future of the game. A long-lost character may be returning to Destiny 2. **WARNING: Major Spoilers Ahead** Guardians can kick off the latest storyline by going to the Eliksni room in the H.E.L.M. There they will hear a message by Lakshmi-2. Lakshmi continues to believe that the Eliksni are a threat and decides to open a Vex portal to banish the House of Light. Lakshmi in the process kills herself and unleashes the Vex on the Last City. Guardians are tasked with finishing one last Override... Read more...
Bungie has hinted they will be revealing some major news about Destiny 2 at their upcoming August showcase. However, Destiny 2 Assistant Game Director Joe Blackburn has offered players some information about what they can expect over the next few seasons. There will soon be new Destiny 2 Crucible maps, modes, and quality of life changes. Bungie will be unveiling two “vaulted” Crucible maps during Season 16. There will then be an entirely brand new map in Season 17 and a remastered map from the original Destiny in Season 18. Blackburn argued that it is no simple matter to create new maps or port old ones. He commented, “When we upgraded our engine with Beyond Light it means we... Read more...
There is one month left of Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer and Bungie has begun to offer a glimpse into what players can expect for the next season. One of the biggest changes coming to Destiny 2’s Season 15 is cross play. Guardians across Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Stadia will finally be able to play with one another. Players have been traditionally identified in Destiny 2 by their gamer tags which are created through one’s chosen platform. For example, PC players create their gamer tag, and therefore their name in Destiny, through Steam. However, this will not be possible once cross play is enabled. This is because cross save will also be enabled and Bungie does not want... Read more...
There is approximately one month left of Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer. While there is plenty of content and activities left in the season, many players have begun to wonder what the next season will bring. A few leaks have appeared here and there on the Internet that may hint at Season 15's content. Dataminers have recently discovered a piece of Exotic Armor that may appear in Destiny 2’s Season 15. Well-known dataminer “Ginsor” tweeted the simple phrase “Thermobaric Greaves.” According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “thermobaric” means “containing a charge of fuel designed to ignite and combine with oxygen present in the atmosphere...

Destiny 2 players are likely familiar with the game’s annual events. Events such as the Dawning, Guardian Games, and Solstice of Heroes offer new challenges and loot each year. The purpose of these events is to engage the player base. However, many players are indifferent or burnt out on these repetitive events. This was especially evident in the Destiny 2 community’s lack of interest in completing the Dawning quests. What can Bungie do to engage players? Here is what we think are the current issues with Destiny 2 annual events and how we think they could be improved. The Solstice of Heroes offers a prime example.  Destiny 2 Loot And Activities Need To Be Worth The Grind What... Read more...

Are you a fan of Destiny lore? Do you love storytelling? Then we have a job for you! Bungie is currently hiring a “Destiny Historian” to help catalog and maintain their ever-growing Destiny universe narrative. The responsibilities of the Destiny Historian are quite extensive. One of the main responsibilities of the Historian is to review scripts and work with writers and others to maintain narrative consistency. This is no small task given the size of the Destiny universe. The Historian will also be expected to produce content for internal developers and external vendors, work “with production to manage schedules,” aid marketing, “establish style guides and specs...

This week’s Destiny 2 “Path of the Splicer” quest helped to move the plot of the season along. It was revealed this past week that Quria, the Dreaming Mind, is the one responsible for creating the Endless Night that is plaguing the Last City. However, there was another major plot twist that we believe deserves some consideration. Here is our theory about the upcoming plot of Destiny 2’s Season of Splicer. **WARNING: Major Spoilers Ahead** Quira is a commander under Savathûn, the Witch-Queen. The Endless Night is therefore part of Savathûn’s schemes. A lore entry also divulged that Savathûn is disguised as a human being and is present somewhere in... Read more...
Everything old is new again. The Destiny 2 Vault of Glass (VOG) raid officially launches on Saturday, May 22nd. Here is everything you need to know to prep for the Vault of Glass raid. What We Know About the Vault of Glass Raid Vault of Glass (VOG) was the first raid that was available in Destiny. Bungie has noted that it did not want to “evolve this raid into something completely new” and it should have a familiar feel to the original raid. Nevertheless, they have also stated that VOG will not be exactly the same as it was before. Destiny veterans may therefore have a bit of an edge over newer players, but they should expect some changes. For example, we anticipate that there will... Read more...
Everyone loves a good video game hack, and Destiny 2 certainly has its fair share of them. One recent video clip demonstrated the potential of the new Destiny 2 Exotic Sidearm Cryosthesia 77K.

The Destiny 2 2021 Guardian Games have arrived. No Destiny 2 event would truly be complete without a few legendary and exotic items for Guardians to chase after or purchase.

Heavy Slug Thrower requires players to spin up the weapon by clicking down on the aim button. Once fired up, the machine gun will shower your enemies with bullets.

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.

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...
