Destiny 2 Competitive Multiplayer Trailer Shows Off New Moves

Destiny 2 Competitive Multiplayer Trailer Shows Off New Moves

The changes are products of the players' feedback from the recently concluded console beta.

As previously reported, the Destiny 2 beta features all of the content of the PS4 and Xbox One beta, including the Homecoming story mission and Inverted Spire Strike.

Bungie has made changes to matchmaking, scoring and the way the game calculates skill levels.

For more on Destiny 2, read what the game's developers had to say in response to your questions about the upcoming sequel as part of our IGN First coverage and read about the minimum specs required for the Destiny 2 PC beta before it begins later this month. PC Beta players will also experience increased in the damage caused by a grenade in the game's PvE. For example, the winning score in Control has been bumped up to 100 from the previous 75 to allow more time for the players to play the game and use their abilities, while the Mercy rule has been tuned to trigger less often.

Competitive matchmaking will actually take longer, but only because Bungie wants to better match players of a similar level.

Bungie has also revealed that while the overlay functionalities of hardware performance monitors will not be compatible with the game, they will still be able to function in the background. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".

Analysts' Recommendations Roundup: Oclaro Inc (OCLR)
In other Oclaro news, insider Thomas Gordon Beck Mason sold 32,352 shares of Oclaro stock in a transaction on Tuesday, May 16th. The sale was disclosed in a document filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available at the SEC website .

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. Also tweaked is the Warlock melee attack, which will now have the same range as other classes (the exception being when perks increase range).

This week, Bungie said Destiny 2 on PC will include an in-game FPS counter and the ability to set an upper-FPS limit (via a config file). Further, grenades were tweaked to do more damage in PvE mode, Supers' recharge times were lowered, and there was an increase in Power Ammo drops for PvE.

The PC beta, however, will not be exactly the same as the one that players on consoles experienced, as Bungie applied several changes to improve the experience.

"The PC beta has been updated with our new values and will provide much more power ammo in PvE than what was found before". Heavy ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants.

This is the final weekend of Trials of Osiris in Destiny, as Bungie shifts its focus to Destiny 2 in preparation for its September 6 release.
