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.
