Destiny 2 server maintenance is completed, the fir.1.0 update is live, as well as the Curse of Osiris expansion has become accessible to play. Effortlessly which comes patch notes, which detail a number of changes to weapons, armor, classes, activities, and even the mobile companion app. Let’s look over!
Arc Titans will notice quickly the hop which the advantage they’ve enjoyed over their fellow heavy-hitters have been dialed back somewhat: Pulse grenade damage have been “slightly” reduced, as provides the digicam effect they inflict on players caught with their blast. The recharge rate of second grenades has also been slowed, and that means you just can’t toss them out quite so quickly anymore. The recharge rate of Arcbolt grenades, as well as Firebolt, have already been “normalized” to enhance additional grenade types.
On the brilliant side for players who enjoy chucking around sizzling baseballs of death (and also, who doesn’t?), damage inflicted by Flashbang, Magnetic, Suppressor, Incendiary, Fusion, Skip, Flux, Arcbolt, Swarm, Tripmine, Storm, Firebolt, Axion, and Scatter grenades—so practically all of them—has become increased.
Hunter leg armor with all the Survivalist package now grants Recovery, that is a genuine boon for Hunters that do not recover from trouble as quickly as they’d like. Lucky Pants becomes a nice (and needed) buff too, the way it will load an individual round into holstered hand cannons whenever the wearer scores a precision hit with any weapon: This means that, get headshots, get bullets. As well as the grenade recharge rate within the Starfire Protocol chest armor for Warlocks has long been adjusted to make up for your overall lowering of the recharge rate of second grenades.
To the guns: Long-range aim-assist effectiveness of Scout Rifles is reduced, the Relentless Strikes sword perk no more returns ammo on heavy attacks, plus the rate of fireside time between bursts along with Omolon Sidearms may be increased slightly, that will actually trim down their effectiveness in PvP combat. (I’m not a sidearm guy but I have been previously relayed through a a person that is usually that the Last Hope and Last Dance Sidearms basically “melted you at close range.”)
Across-the-board rewards for Quickplay and Competitive PvP—XP, and Rare and Legendary drops—have already been improved, and Strikes may even pay out more Glimmer and XP. Recommended Power ratings with the Leviathan raid, Nightfall strikes, and Guided Games are adjusted, as well as for kind of an amusing oddity, a problem that caused Lord Saladin to refer to Guardians by the wrong class have been fixed, because that is just awkward.
Of course, there are a few PC-specific changes:
- Players are able to exit the action employing a controller
- Players may now keybind for the NumPad when NumLock is active
- The scroll wheel now works on gear lore tabs
- Fixed crashing inside the New Pacific Arcology section of Titan
- Fixed a source of random crashes
- Fixed an issue that prevented fullscreen mode from working properly in rare situations
- Improved the truth in the in game framerate counter under fluctuating framerates on PC
- Fixed an issue where Destiny 2 would crash upon shutdown
- Improved font texture handling to cope with installments of stuttering or hitching
- Fixed a problem where some SLI configurations would cause framerate stuttering
There aren’t real “holy cow” moments because far when i can tell—the update one is the most on the broad-based fix-and-tweak than a revolutionary overhaul. That is in keeping with what Bungie has said previously about the work of increasing the game as a process, that will include another big update in just a week that should usher inside Masterworks system. Generally speaking (and in spite of to stop my Arc Titan edge), I love some tips i see.
