Bungie probably fixed a lot of issues that beta players pointed out.

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.

In Quickplay, matchmaking times will be shortened but at the expense of skill levels being less emphasized in the process.


The September 6th release date for Destiny 2 on consoles is quickly approaching, but PC players still have their own beta to look forward to at the end of this month. PC Beta players will also experience increased in the damage caused by a grenade in the game's PvE. For example, in Quickplay, the Control game type has had the winning score increased from 75 to 100. This mode will ensure that you're matched more fairly with players closer to your skill level. To compliment this, Bungie will improve upon skill calculation in Countdown. Bungie has already explained that Destiny 2 PC version will not be a console port and will feel like a PC game and now the devs have revealed that players will be able to adjust the upper limit of FPS on PC. Players can also expect that Warlocks, like all other classes in the game, now have the same Melee Range. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super". Our PC friends will get a chance to experience a world with consistent base melee ranges.

"We remain committed to creating a positive and fair in-game experience in all of our products, and believe that this is a necessary measure in bringing you a great gaming experience in Destiny 2 on PC". Finally, more changes are being implemented that include mainly bug fixes, ironing out glitches and further balancing to the characters' abilities.

"The #PC Beta of "#Destiny 2" is launching in the later part of August.


The Destiny 2 PC beta will also see a reduction in the time it takes to charge a Destiny 2 Super, while increasing grenade damage and Power Ammo drops in PvE modes. The PC beta has been updated with our new values and will provide much more heavy ammo in PvE than what was found before.

The console beta was held back in mid July, giving Bungie plenty of feedback on their networking technology, as well as player response on gameplay changes and tweaks, but now the developer has outlined what adjustments have been made since then, and in-turn will be live in the PC beta. Power ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants.
