Bungie reveals Destiny 2 gameplay changes for PC beta

Destiny 2 will launch with more than 50 hours of story content

As an added bonus, PC users will also be able to try the Javelin-4 map.

But just because the Destiny 2 console beta was a technical test doesn't mean that Bungie isn't changing content and balancing combat as well.

Bungie will look to make the franchise's first look on the PC successful through some changes that it will apply to the beta version of Destiny 2, as the developer addresses some of the biggest complaints made by players in the console beta.

Towards the end of the gameplay reveal shown on May 18, Activision announced that Destiny 2 would be available for PC players exclusively through Battle Net, with players being able to find each other through the online service.

From this point forward, to allow for more varied experiences between the playlists, matchmaking for Quickplay and Competitive will be tuned separately.

Along with this, it was mentioned that game type rules can be adjusted depending on the playlist. In Bungie's latest weekly blog post, they'll shorten matchmaking for Quickplay, and Skill won't be as much of a deciding factor anymore.

The winning score in Control has been extended, because matches were previously over too quickly.

Aside from the changes applied to the game's Quickplay and Competitive matchmaking, there are other parts of the Beta that have received tweak.

"As a part of our security efforts, we have designed Destiny 2 for PC to resist all attempts from external applications to insert code into the game client", Bungie said.

FIXED: Warlock Glide Glitch This bug was awesome... So awesome it hurt us a little bit to kill it. Thanks to those in the console Beta who helped us track this down.

FIXED: Infinite Grenades Glitch Another issue found with the help of our friends in the console Beta. Players can also expect that Warlocks, like all other classes in the game, now have the same Melee Range. However, before the scheduled launch, the game developer will roll out changes to the game.

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.

Increased damage helps Grenades feel as powerful as they should facing hordes of alien combatants and, more specifically, makes the longer cooldowns more palatable.

The upcoming beta for Destiny 2 PC will mark the first time that the massively popular sci-fi shooter can be played on the PC, as Destiny was only available for consoles.

"The PC beta has been updated with our new values and will provide much more power ammo in PvE than what was found before". Heavy ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants.
