This week’s Bungie update has another interesting piece of information for Destiny 2 fans; specifically, initial word of plans for Destiny 2 weapon adjustments. Which is perhaps unsurprising, but still is likely good to know for players who have strong opinions on the shooter’s many tools of war.
Word of tweaks comes from senior designer Jon Weisnewski, who confirms that the devs of Destiny 2 have been paying attention to player remarks, metrics, and personal experiences in-game. “We’re not ready to go into detail about any weapon or ability tuning at this point, but there is an ongoing process in play, so we did want to drop a quick line and say…we have your feedback,” said Weisnewski.
While specifics on just what tweaks are planned were not detailed, the post does make mention that focus on “updates that tune the sandbox experience” will inform weapon adjustments. The post also acknowledges the popularity of the MIDA Multi-Tool, offering a nod to other items that match or even surpass the weapon’s effectiveness.
“It’s only the first month of a long adventure,” closes Weisnewski. ” Many players are still gathering weapons for their arsenal and we have a handful of guns that haven’t even hit the game yet. We’re excited to see how things evolve.”
We’re excited to see how things evolve as well! The language of the post seems to infer that the adjustments will have a PvE focus, but then again the argument could be made that the Crucible is its own form of “sandbox” as well. Do you think Destiny 2’s weapons need help on the PvE side, the PvP side, or both?
