Destiny 2 PC Beta Changes, Fixes & Tweaks Listed

Guardians ready for Destiny 2 PVP

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. Bungie packed the beta with a massive amount of content, including access to one of four open world areas that would be available in the retail release.

TWEAKED: Globally reduced the time it takes to charge your Super This was a big change that came directly from your feedback during the console beta. 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 on PC. Plus, Bungie is already looking ahead to those who finish the base materials, as the studio seems to have loads of ideas in store when it comes to end game content. This time, it's the player's speed and not his or her skill that will be the gauge on how they can search for Quickplay games.

Time limits will also be put in place in the Nightfall Strikes, so players won't have quite as much free time as they'd hope for when developing their strategies. Bakken added that winning in Control could also require more points.

A few years ago, when Bungie rolled out the first public beta for Destiny, nobody really knew that the game was going to look like.

Matchmaking for the Competitive mode will focus on putting Guardians of a similar skill level together.

More news: Pep Guardiola: Manchester City will never spend this much on transfers again

Bungie's weekly update is live and features some details on Destiny 2's upcoming PC beta, specifically what tweaks are being made to competitive play.

Moving on, Bungie's fixed the Warlock glide glitch ("this bug was awesome.so awesome it hurt us a little bit to kill it"), and the infinite grenades glitch.

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

Beyond the new approach to the Crucible, Bungie also fixed and tweaked a wide variety of issues that players encountered during the console beta. This means that players will have to wait for a shorter period of time, but they will have to go up against opponents who are better or worse than them. As such, here's a list of the major adjustments in the PC Beta. The Power Ammo drops in PvE have been increased as well.

Destiny 2's director Luke Smith will give the PAX West opening keynote later next month on September 6 for consoles and September 24 for PC. The PC Beta will run until August 31.
