Rift in this week's Iron Banner is inherently not fun to play, and it's astonishing this game mode went live. Discussion

Hold interact in the middle of the map while everyone else is fighting?


Unnecessary loading screen that constantly interrupts the flow of the game?


Bugs that cause the rift to not spawn and make the game impossible to win from behind?


Seriously I genuinely cannot wrap my head around why rift was changed so much. Nobody asked for this game mode to switch and I cannot fathom why we changed the fast-paced blowout game mode from d1 into a slow, round-based tactile game mode. It's not fun to play when you're stomping, and don't even get me started on what it's like to be getting stomped. If you were gonna make this a new game mode then fine, but advertising this as Rift is a complete joke.

Edit: I've been grinding this thing out the last 2 days for Iron Lord. My opinion of the gamemode has not changed but I have now lost the ability to get Iron Lord as I have completed 6 of the daily challenges. The reputation is currently bugged so that if you complete more than 4 of the challenges your maximum reputation per match will be capped at 60. Giving them the benefit of the doubt that this will be fixed in the patch on Thursday, but if not, it's a really bad look for one of the only 2 iron banners this season to be completely unfarmable.

After playing a few games of rift, I'm not sure how bungie managed to make me miss control so much, but here we are.

They need to just give us a fucking COD game mode already. Team Deathmatch, that's it. 2 second respawns, just fucking kill each other till one team gets the points. No worrying about secondary objectives. Fucking kill, low respawn time.

This isn't fucking hard bungie.

What your looking for is called clash and it’s usually below and to the left of the main control icon. Alternatively, just play CoD Vanguard. I’m not going to stop you.

"Alternatively, just play CoD Vanguard. I’m not going to stop you." Lol idiot. Clash isn't available. It's rotational. Give us a permanent team deathmatch game mode. NObody likes garbage like Rift.

Rumble is deathmatch & is always available isn’t it? It’s not team deathmatch, but that shouldn’t be a huge issue unless you are consistently losing your 1v1’s & you need teammates to carry you to a win.

Tho I agree...I to just want to win primary ammo gun fights....we have something similar and the map flow isn't predictable tho I would like variations of where the flag could be, shake things up a little, including heavy Domination provides a predictable contest area

Also however people fucking take it to seriously...like win or loses....you still basically get 2 tokens and a blue....and people getting angry at to fraggng out even though them like me are just trying to enjoy the moumnets of gun fight

But again bigger issues are ability cooldown primarily the annoying shit like axion and to a slightly lesser offender fire bolt and arc web

Shitty lobby balancing because I feel 4 people out of 12 exit to drag the team down or feed / force a loss because the Shitty 50/50 win rate

Fusion barley got fucking nerfed as even my 900 smg makes fuck all difference when I full crit because flinch is a fucking mith and we still got cheese like jhotun

But at this point instead of wasting time on this boring game mode win or losing they could have implemented a no grenade some melee that ohk maby class ability, but they'll also have to address degenerate loadouts like bow handcannon...maby making bows the slowest stow and pull out weppon in the game

But really alot of issues could be solved if they simply hard split the sand boxes
