Destiny 2 Competitive Multiplayer Trailer Shows Off New Moves

Destiny 2 won't play nicely with some common PC tools, but Bungie has solutions, workarounds and explanations. 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.

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. Bungie have stated as much in the official announcement post on Bungie.net, where the developer warned players that the PC specs for the beta might not necessarily be the same for the full game. 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.

Competitive matchmaking will actually take longer, but only because Bungie wants to better match players of a similar level. After many believed that apps like Discord, OBS and so on simply wouldn't work, Bungie noted, "While third party applications will not fully lose functionality during Destiny 2 PC gameplay, features that attempted to insert code into the game will not be compatible".

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. Because too many matches were shorter than we expected (some Guardians weren't even able charge their Super) we've extended the trigger for the Mercy rule so it will come into play less often. To compliment this, Bungie will improve upon skill calculation in Countdown.

FIXED: Warlock Glide Glitch This bug was awesome... "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super". However we now know that the Destiny 2 PC release date is October 24, 2017, around a month and a half after the game first releases on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

FIXED: Warlocks now have the same Melee Range as all other classes With the exception of where perks directly increase their range, Warlocks will punch like the rest of us.

Grenades have a longer cooldown in Destiny 2, but unfortunately they didn't feel quite as powerful against enemies in PvE. It does include some tweaks from the console beta plus a new multiplayer map.

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. Power ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants.

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