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

  • Destiny 2 PC beta here’s what’s changing from the console version

If you want to participate in the Destiny 2 PC beta, you can preorder the game from Bungie or participating retailers to join during the early access period on August 28th. Numerous issues patched in the PC beta were uncovered during the console beta in July, meaning PC beta testers will have an experience that's closer to the finished game. Bungie packed the beta with a massive amount of content, including access to one of four open world areas that would be available in the retail release. Bungie recently took to their blog to share that they "learned a lot" from the players who participated in the beta and that "Some of these learnings will be on display in the PC Beta".

While Destiny 2 will take player and group skill rating into account at all times, it will be less of a factor in Quickplay.

Bungie has fixed the infinite Super glitch, which allowed the players to gain a unhindered Super Ability if they got on a Sparrow bike at the right time. What's more, the Mercy rule trigger has been extended because some matches were proving to be too short; some players never got to charge their Super, Bungie said. To compliment this, Bungie will improve upon skill calculation in Countdown.

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

Moving on, Bungie's fixed the Warlock glide glitch ("this bug was awesome.so awesome it hurt us a little bit to kill it"), and the infinite grenades glitch.

Arsenal and Leicester put on a show in the opening game of the season as the Gunners ran out 4-3 winners at the Emirates. He netted the victor after fellow substitute Aaron Ramsey had equalised past the hapless Kasper Schmeichel .


FIXED: Infinite Grenades Glitch Another issue found with the help of our friends in the console Beta. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super". Also tweaked is the Warlock melee attack, which will now have the same range as other classes (the exception being when perks increase range). 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.

All these changes are very positive and should give those playing on PC an even better idea of how the final version of Destiny 2 will play.

Grenades have a longer cooldown in Destiny 2, but unfortunately they didn't feel quite as powerful against enemies in PvE.

Power Ammo will be found more regularly, and can also be farmed from yellow bar enemies. Along with providing a higher level of visuals thanks to the PC platform, it will also feature changes to Power Ammo drops, Super energy gain and so on.

Hardware performance monitors will be able to function alongside Destiny 2 PC, but any form of overlay functionality will be restricted.
