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…

What’s better: seasonal events, or dynamic snow?

Last time, you decided by a narrow margin that becoming overpowered is better than a chunky manual. With no chunky manual to teach you a game’s systems, I guess you’ll be busy experimenting with that for a while. This week, I’ve had a queer fancy to (for once) make you pick between things which have absolutely no connection. What’s better: seasonal events, or dynamic snow? I know, it’s a bit of a silly choice, but hey, it’s the last week of work before Christmas, let’s goof off. Read more

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…

Ultimate Audio Bang #22: have shooters become too demanding?

On this week’s episode of the Ultimate Audio Bang, we turn our attention to shooters and their demands. They all want our undivided attention and for Hayden and I, it’s fast becoming a bit much. Believe it or not, we’re adults with clothes to fold and ovens to pre-heat! Daily quests and inane challenges aren’t bringing us back, if anything, they’re beginning to drive us away. Read more

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…

With a snap of their fingers, Bungie has ignited excitement among Warlocks in Destiny 2

With the introduction of the solar 3.0 rework, Warlocks have a hot new melee ability that’s has us feeling faint.

Destiny 2 Warlocks dominate as they head towards their first guardian games win

While there’s still time for an upset, it looks like Warlocks are this year’s favourites. The Guardian games are well underway in Destiny 2, the annual olympics-esq competition that pits each class against each other over the span of three weeks, and it looks like Warlocks are the current favourites to win the whole thing. Logging into Destiny 2 right now, banners representing the progress of each class are clearly seeable at The Tower, and they hint at a big W going to the game’s intergalactic sorcerers. In second place come the Titans, who are performing admirably. Last place are…
