Destiny 2 hotfix for March 23 finally addresses one of Lightfall’s biggest problems

Destiny 2 Thresher cannons getting you down in the Master Nightfall? Not for much longer, they’re not. A new hotfix landing in Destiny 2 Lightfall on March 23 is going to address a major issue that’s been causing players grief since the start of the latest expansion’s launch: finally, Cabal Thresher damage output is going to be nerfed. Why is this important? First, a history lesson. With the launch of Lightfall, the Cabal airships got a massive upgrade. Ever since we first stepped foot on Neomuna and started experimenting with Strand powers, the pesky airships began firing missiles that can…

Destiny 2 servers go offline as players get booted from instances a day before raid release

All appears to be fine now, but will things improve with The Root of Nightmares? Destiny 2: Lightfall servers suddenly went down last night, as players were experiencing huge login queues, connectivity issues, and abrupt booting into orbit. This comes only a day before The Root of Nightmares raid. Announced via the official BungieHelp Twitter account, the game was brought down temporarily to “assist in investigations into error codes, inability to log in, and login queues.” The servers are back online now, but with an additional maintenance period due today, fingers are crossed the upcoming raid release goes smoothly. Watch…

Destiny 2 Lightfall, one week later – the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly

Bungie has once again kicked it out of the park with some elements of Destiny… but completely dropped the ball with others. It’s becoming a pattern. Destiny 2 Lightfall currently sits at ‘mostly negative’ on Steam. Twitter and Reddit are awash with posts complaining about, highlighting issues with, and outright mocking the latest expansion. Even MyNameIsByf, a longstanding Destiny loyalist with a razor sharp eye for criticism and commentary, has expressed his profound disappointment with Lightfall and the future it sets up for Bungie. Byf makes some very, very good points in this video. But, all that aside, Lightfall isn’t…

Destiny 2 Lightfall is already reminding me of the best era of Halo games

A breakneck retreat from a ship as it implodes, some of the classiest combat puzzles in the FPS genre, and a killer soundtrack. Halo is back, sorta. Remember when Bungie used to make Halo games? They were great, weren’t they? Some of the tightest, smartest shooters around – revolutionary in the way they opened up the corridors of the genre and popularised the use-the-weapons-of-your-enemy mechanic. Whether you were playing as Master Chief in the main trilogy or some plucky young upstarts in ODST or Reach, those games are packed tight with some of the most iconic moments in FPS history….

Destiny 2 datamine shows off Fortnite crossover skins, zero mentions of best-fruit Peely

The skins will likely be officially revealed at tomorrow’s showcase. Destiny 2 fans that feel like the game is missing a certain chug-jug flair might be happy to learn that some Fortnite crossover skins have leaked online. While both Destiny and Fornite are both shooters, in general their tone is quite different, with one obviously meant to be taken a bit more seriously than the other. So when you hear ‘Fortnite x Destiny 2 skins,’ you might rightly think ‘oh no, are they putting a giant banana man in Destiny,’ but as shown by dataminer Ginsor, the skins actually fit…

Bungie suing person responsible for multiple fraudulent Destiny 2 DMCA takedowns

To the tune of $7.7 million. Bungie is suing the person behind several bogus Destiny 2 DMCA takedowns. March 2022 saw Bungie and various YouTubers hit with a DMCA takedown. At the time, it wasn’t clear who was issuing the takedowns, but Bungie eventually found out who the malefactor was, and has filed a lawsuit. According to the filing, the offender’s name is Nicholas Minor who goes by Lord Nazo on YouTube. Apparently, Minor was issued a takedown notice by Bungie on YouTube, went off the rails, and eventually started targeting Bungie and prominent Destiny YouTubers. “After receiving the takedown…

Destiny 2 YouTube Takedown Revenge Plot Leads To $7.6 Million Bungie Lawsuit

A spree of rogue DMCA takedown notices for Destiny 2 content on YouTube earlier this year has now ballooned into a $7.6 million lawsuit, as Bungie goes after the alleged perpetrator in court. In addition, some Destiny 2 content creators now say they feel “betrayed” after the person who was seemingly responsible denied this during private Discord chats with them. “I feel lied to, betrayed, and unbelievably upset that someone we knew and trusted would do this,” wrote Destiny music remixer Owen Spence on Twitter. “Literally, almost all Destiny music on YouTube is gone because of this.”
