Destiny 2’s Season of the Lost was just released after the end of the Season of the Splicer, but that isn’t the only major news we’ve heard about Destiny 2. For example, the Witch Queen expansion was finally announced in detail, and it is likely going to get released in February 2022.
Destiny 2 is seeing the end of its Solstice of Heroes event in the next couple of weeks, and players are encouraged to make the most of the event while they can. The Armor Synthesis system is also being further reworked with the deletion of the Synthstrand currency and its replacement with glimmer.
With the defeat of the Vex and the end of the long night in the Tower ending, it is a week of celebration in Destiny 2. The Solstice of Heroes is in full swing, and the event is accompanied by the return of Eva Levante. She has some class-themed gear available that glows, so be sure to check it out.
Destiny 2’s Season of the Splicer is in full swing, and the Vex have plunged the Tower into seemingly endless night. This season has also seen the reintroduction of the Vault of Glass raid, which was removed from the game when a large portion of the content was vaulted by Bungie.
Bungie's Destiny 2 (also known as Destiny 2: New Light) is a free-to-play massively online first-person shooter video game. It was first announced in 2017 as a pay-to-play title for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows platforms. On October 1, 2019, it became free-to-play under the New Light title.
A more cartoonish setting of Destiny 2, Overwatch
can sometimes feel like it has similar gunplay mechanics.
The game is set in a "mythic science fiction" setting and has a cooperative "shared-world" system with role-playing game elements. Destiny 2's tasks are split into two game types: player versus environment (PvE) and player versus player (PvP). For this guide, we will focus on the PvP portion of the game.
Player versus player battle is possible in the Crucible. In this game mode, player statistics such as weapon power and safety are balanced between teams, much like in the original.
There are also rotating game modes like Trials of the Nine, including Trials of Osiris, which starts on Fridays and finishes on Tuesdays with the weekly reset. Rather than utilizing the original Elimination mode, Trials of the Nine now alternates between Destiny 2's two new game modes, Countdown and Survival, bi-weekly.
Plays will encounter the Emissary of the Nine, an NPC who will trade tokens for gear. Three, five, and seven wins on the scorecard, respectively, grant entry to the upper levels of the social room, which provide larger incentives. When you reach seven wins in a row, you earn entry to a special field with much better prizes.
The original game's occasional competitive Iron Banner PvP feature, which disabled player gear balancing, was also brought back for the sequel. Iron Banner is a once-a-week gamemode with regular goals to complete. To enter Iron Banner, players must have finished the campaign and reached level 20.
Gambit, a new PvP activity in Destiny 2, was launched in the second year of the campaign. Two teams of four compete against each other to beat AI opponents from one of the game's factions/races (Cabal, Fallen, Hive, Vex, or fresh with Forsaken Scorn), capture their motes, and then bank them. A total of 15 motes can be carried at a time, with every five motes spawning a different sized blocker on each hand.
At certain points throughout the game, an invasion gateway can appear, allowing a team member to invade the opposing team and defeat other players holding motes. The boss will emerge after a team has accumulated 75 motes, and whoever defeats the boss first wins the round. There are three stages, with the winner taking the best of three.
Destiny 2 doesn’t really lend itself well to cheats in PvE content, however as we mentioned earlier, certain PvP reward content is locked safely behind high skill levels. Without a shred of doubt, cheats will allow you to access all of the game’s content whilst simultaneously allowing you to dip your toes in Godhood, worthy of remembrance within the halls of the Crucible, Trials, Gambit and the Iron Banner.
Although Bungie is likely to have certain anti-cheat measures in effect, they do not have an anti-cheat monitoring everything 24/7, as this would contain too much data. They still don't do anything like limit players with VAC suspensions from participating in Trials.
