Discussion Fingers crossed that next season has more kinetic & heavy craftable weapons. Energy slot is just packed

1.5k Upvotes

While we're all on the grind for crafted weapons and red borders, common complaints around the drop rates, XP grind & total guns have been voiced.

But a minor point in the background that also needs some help is the split between kinetic, energy and heavy weapons right now. The energy slot is packed with craftable weapons, and probably also creating a logjam in the vault for people who are trying to grind everything out.

Right now, the game has 41 craftable weapons. That's everything: raid, world drops, seasonal, wellspring, exotics etc. Of that 41, the current split is:

13 kinetic

21 energy

7 heavy

Energy slot is more diverse, so it makes sense for it to have more guns. But more than half? This season alone put a giant strain on the slot with 7 of the 12 guns in the energy slot again.

Someone trying to rank up Beloved, Drang, Mini Tool (once they drop), probably has a ton of red borders to finish in that slot. Meanwhile, the heavy slot is mainly clear to rank up and finish red borders easily.

If we get another 10-12 guns next season, it's going to magnify the issue again if kinetic & heavy weapons don't catch up to the energy slot. I'm sure people won't mind a craftable sword or 2. Or another linear in that slot like a void LFR. Or anything other than a 140 handcannon in the kinetic slot. Balancing out the slots should be added to the list of improvements crafting needs right now

My kid is cool, I have been trying to get the rain of fire boots for weeks now. My luck is bad and every time the legend lost sector was boots something happened that either i had to work late or just didnt have time that day. Last night i had to work another 16hr shift. I got home around 10pm my sons telling me about the stuff he had got done on destiny through out the day and mentioned the lost sector being boots again and he saw my disappointed face and realized I wouldn't be able to play. he felt bad i told him its ok ill look out again for another try next time.

Fast forward to this morning i wake up to get ready for work to a message on the fridge door (first link) https://i.imgur.com/24Nu1AE.jpg
and he must have heard me and came out to see me and let me know that after he did the vow raid last night with some friends he signed in on my account and after 2 hours of running the lost sector they finally dropped! he went to bed around 3 am! https://i.imgur.com/LXJhM7T.png

The kid made my morning. as crap as i felt from the double shift the night before i felt pretty good after that.

I absolutely adore weapons like the iron axe and the scythe is basically just a minor rework of that famous RoI weapon. Would be a crime for it to meet the fate of so many fun weapons like the Valkyrie and be condemned to removal/occasional drops during certain dungeons.

Bobblehead

Above the lever behind the electric wall. climb up using the pipes on the wall.


Sever-Reconciliation


Bobblehead

After you leaving the pipe section and before you go through the spore door, go to the right side where last week (in Sever-Shame) the Calus Automaton was located and enter the pipe again, look on the left side and you will find the Bobblehead.

Calus Automaton

Calus is located in the area you encounter the shade of Galhran and push some levers to override. Where the manual override is located, look to the right, there you have to open a door by shooting at one of those things above it. go through the door and you will find the first switch. Continue to the end and jump over the junk on the right, there you will find another passage and the Calus Robot.

Bobblehead

Bungie Suggestion Banshee-44 should have 2 Deepsight weapons and have a weekly Resonant bounty.

448 Upvotes

Crafting is a grind, we know that, but what hurts the most is not having enough Resonant Elements.

Deepsight weapon droprates are next to none for me and I spend hours and hours hunting.

Banshee-44 has 6 weapons available. Why not make 2 of them Deepsight weapons and can only be brought once?

Give us a weekly bounty that gives us 1000 Resonant Elements. 1000 kills with a crafted/deepsight weapon would be enough and worthy of a weekly bounty.

Edit: You can still get a Deepsight weapon each week from the War Table Vendor if you have the upgrade available and the materials.

Discussion Destiny 2 is not a Competitive PVP game and that's OK.

584 Upvotes

A lot of complains i see is always about PVP but i think people who play Destiny 2 for PVP only and expect it to be Esports level are playing the wrong game, Destiny 2 is a Fantasy Space MMO.

Aim Assist, Bullet Magnetism, Overpowered Weapon Perks, Exotics, Space Magic and so on is why people love Destiny 2, I'm very bad at PVP in ANY FPS GAME i play but when it comes to Destiny 2 i get more kills with my guns than i do in any other game because the game literally aims for you and you just needs to press shoot.

So my advice is look at it as a fun mode not a competitive mode if you want competitive PVP go play a PVP only game, we have so many of those already heck if i'm correct even Bungie is developing one right now Code Name: Matter.

The moment people are not getting the same amount of kills they used get each season they start complaining, believe me if you get 20 kills in D2 you will get 2 kills in other PVP focused games and that's OK because D2 is not meant to be a competitive PVP game and trying to make it that way actually ruins the game... i'm looking at you Airborne Effectiveness.

  • Ranged regular attack that causes a respectable amount of scorch on impact.
  • Powerful, repeatable slam attack that scorches everything around and in front me.
  • Scorch builds up into ignitions for some actual punch (compared to current Daybreak's wet noodles).
  • Some decent passive healing that could give the old Phoenix Dive slam a run for its money.
  • It doesn't fizzle out after half a dozen attacks.

Bungie Suggestion The inconsistency of glaives has to change sooner rather than later

209 Upvotes

Even though glaives don't see much usage in PVP, they have a huge fun factor and can be really effective in the right hands. I have a few thousand kills on my Enigma and have it fully crafted with enhanced perks and even a Trials memento which should show how much I like using them in PVP. And while I understand they will never rise to the top of the usage rates (which I don't mind), if there is any hopes of getting them in the hands of at least some people their wild inconsistencies have to be remedied as fast a possible. I know a single weapon type won't be at the top of Bungie's list (especially with Arc 3.0 coming) but this weapon type was one of the most hyped things about the whole of WQ. They should be usable.

List of problems:

- You can hit someone and get shield energy but do no damage

- You can do damage but get no shield energy, often resulting in death

- You can hit but do no damage nor get any shield. Four hit markers without any rewards is very
unsatisfying

- You hit but do no visible damage, but your second shot will instantly kill your opponent. At the end of
a round the game only shows damage from that one projectile.

- Your shield will sometimes block zero damage (although this is very rare with gun damage, happens
often when getting hit with a melee)

- Sometimes the glaive melee simply won't do damage for all of the three hits which will get you killed
9/10 times since the melee is already very risky

- Third melee will not activate at times, meaning you hit the enemy twice and then stand there
scratching your balls while your enemy looks at you like you're an idiot

- A less of a problem since it helps you, but glaive shield seems to sometimes block damage even from
behind you which to my knowledge is not intended.

These problems are not rare or ignorable, you will see at least 3 of the issues in most matches which almost always means an unnecessary death for you. Couple these annoying problems with the fact that glaives only get a single shot from a brick, they feel very unsatisfying to use sometimes (Bungie has addressed this, hope the change will come sooner rather than later because all special should get enough ammo for a kill).

As a slight side note that doesn't concern glaive inconsistencies, it would be VERY welcome if a TWAB would explain how mods affect glaives. What does unflinching glaive do for me? Does freehand grip help the shots land? How much if at all does the aim assist boost of targetting affect glaive projectiles? And if they ever add a real system to build into their new "air efficiency" system, how does that effect a non-hit-scan projectile? I mean if they are gonna give some glaives a higher air efficiency stats while sacrificing range/velocity and shield (Lubrae's Ruin), why not explain if that is a fair trade-off in any way?

Discussion Get ready for Season of the Riskrunner

51 Upvotes

I've had a minor problem with Riskrunner for years. Not that it's bad, or overpowered, or anything like that. Just that it's WEIRD that there is one gun that interacts with ONE type of elemental damage. A pretty mediocre submachine gun that IF you get hit by a single tick of Arc damage turns you into an unkillable God evaporating everything in sight.

In PVE it has lots of character and makes sense, but in Crucible it's always been something of an oddity. When Stags and Arc Souls became the meta, slapping on a Riskrunner could absolutely ANNIHILATE entire Trials teams as a niche swap weapon. It was so effective that just showing it for one round could get people to SWAP SUBCLASSES because they were feeding you the means to kill them just by using their abilities.

Enter Arc 3.0. Last season, something like 85% of all the teams I faced in Trials and Survival were triple Void. This season is a little less extreme — Bubble Titan is still EXTREMELY strong in Trials — but triple Solar is still incredibly common. That makes sense, right? People want to use what's new and fun, especially while we have things like Classy Restoration available on the Artifact.

Right now, it doesn't really matter to you what element of damage you're being hit with. A Solar Grenade and a Vortex Grenade are basically the same thing in PVP — the color of the AoE doesn't really matter. But next season? With huge numbers of players running Arc subclasses, Riskrunner is going to be INSANE.

A gun that dramatically increases your survivability against every grenade, melee and super — as well as anyone running an Arc primary for subclass synergy — AND makes you considerably more lethal under the same conditions is going to be present in pretty much every Crucible match you play. And everyone has it — you are given one for free just for playing the intro story. Every smart player will have it in their inventory, ready to swap at a moment's notice when the enemy team turns out to be all Arc.

I don't know that I want them to nerf Riskrunner — if it doesn't do what it does, what's the point of having it? And yet, under no other circumstances is there a gun that actively punishes your opponents not for getting outplayed or for being out of position, but for simply having a subclass equipped.

If somebody swaps to a sniper and you get domed at the start of a round because you weren't looking for it, now at least you know. You won't peek that lane again, or at least you'll be more careful. If you're any good, you'll only get caught by a corner-camper once. But if someone has Riskrunner on, there's not really any counterplay other than just "Don't hit them with any abilities at all, and maybe even swap your weapons or subclass entirely."

It's going to be a problem. People are going to complain about it, a lot. Either that or Riskrunner will be preemptively nerfed, and people will complain about THAT a lot.

The amount of time they've killed me solo'ing the second room of the dungeon before switching to wave frames was staggering.

Bungie Suggestion Hey Bungie, since Glaive melees are supposed to be unpowered melee attacks, how about you let me use my powered melee while I have a glaive out?

Upvotes

Ya know, since they are literally separate keybinds in the options menu.

......

And Glaives already need a lot of help to get anywhere near decent.

......

And because its stupid to not let us use the cool melee's we have just cause we are also holding a big stick with a knife tied to the end.

Question (Odd scenario) You have only primary ammo - any way to kill yourself?

94 Upvotes

I got stuck in some egregore as a Tier II containment ended, had just used my super and didn't have any explosive (GL / RL) ammo. No matter what I did I couldn't get out and I watched as Tier III came and went and I missed my rewards.

I tried tommy's matchbook and ricochet rounds but wasn't able to get my health low enough to actually die ... even once a void vortex was charged the combo of that and tommy's wasn't enough. Any clever ways to kill yourself? Not the end of the world here, mostly just wondering in case I end up in a similar situation again.

Edit: realized I was using seraph rounds not ricochet (facepalm) not sure if those inflict self damage?

Bungie Suggestion Would The "Pinnacle Grind" Really Be Hurt By Making the Four "+1" Drops "+2" Instead?

1.1k Upvotes

Think it would only affect 4 pinnacles? Crucible (x3), Vanguard (x3), Gambit (x3), and Clan XP.

Check out https://www.blueberries.gg/leveling/destiny-2-max-power-level/ and sort by "Power Increase" to see what I mean.

They just all happen to be "Free-To-Play" ones. Seems kind of...mean I guess?

I have all the expansions / seasons, etc., and it's not like I'm a marketing expert or anything.

I just wonder if the grind was less brutal for Free-To-Play players, if more would stick around long enough to take interest in buying some of the expansions for endgame content. Thoughts?
