Guardians ready for Destiny 2 PVP

Bakken stated that both Quickplay and Competitive matchmaking modes will receive separate updates. The option reduces loading times comparatively, with the trade-off being that Skill is no longer factored, so there's no guarantee that your opponents are near the same level as you. Bungie recently took to their blog to share that they "learned a lot" from the players who participated in the beta and that "Some of these learnings will be on display in the PC Beta". Numerous issues patched in the PC beta were uncovered during the console beta in July, meaning PC beta testers will have an experience that's closer to the finished game. These involve changes to matchmaking times and systems.

Sandbox Designer Josh Hamrick has also offered a list of tweaks that have been made in light of the console beta; mostly glitch fixes to tackle infinite Supers, infinite grenades and the lovely Warlock Glide glitch. For example, in Quickplay, the Control game type has had the winning score increased from 75 to 100. The trigger for the Mercy rule has also been extended to prevent it from shortening matches as often.

Sandbox designer Josh Hamrick then revealed the other changes coming to the Destiny 2 PC beta, starting off with the fixes for glitches for infinite Supers, infinite grenades, and the Warlock Glide.

Meanwhile, how the new "Countdown" mode calculates skill has been tweaked.

Infinite Supers are all well and good until someone loses an eye.

Another issue that went undiscovered until players found it in the console beta was this glitch that allowed players to throw infinite grenades while playing as a Voidwalker.

With the exception of where perks directly increase their range, Warlocks will punch like the rest of us.

If you want to participate in the Destiny 2 PC beta, you can preorder the game from Bungie or participating retailers to join during the early access period on August 28th. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".

The Destiny 2 PC beta is set to launch on August 28, a month after the Destiny 2 beta for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers ended its extended run until July 25.

Also tweaked are Super charge times (as a direct response to player feedback), and increased grenade damage and power drops in PvE.

"We want abilities to be slightly more rare, but worth it".

The PC beta, however, will not be exactly the same as the one that players on consoles experienced, as Bungie applied several changes to improve the experience.

Power Ammo will be found more regularly, and can also be farmed from yellow bar enemies. The PC version is scheduled to be released on October 24.
