In the month leading up to February’s highly-anticipated Lightfall expansion, Destiny 2 is implementing a number of improvements and changes to enhance the player experience.
One such change is the reduction of the grind required to access Grandmaster Nightfall missions, providing more opportunities for players to take on these challenging content.
Additionally, players can look forward to more generous drops of armor during Iron Banner events in the coming weeks. And for those who have been eagerly awaiting the ability to fully customize their character’s armor, the often-mysterious armor mods will finally be unlocked for all players to enjoy.
Barriers to Accessing Essential Items in Destiny 2: The Armor Mods System
Destiny 2 can be a challenging experience for new players, as many of the most engaging aspects of the game are locked behind significant barriers of time, effort, and luck.
One of the most significant examples of this is the armor mods system, which allows players to drastically change the way they play the game, but which is only available through a single, hard-to-find in-game vendor named ADA-1.
This can be especially frustrating for new players who are looking to experiment with different playstyles and build fun, unique characters, but who are stuck with limited options due to the barriers to accessing these essential items.
However, this is set to change in the future, as the developers have recognized the difficulty new players have accessing these features, and are taking steps to make them more accessible in the future.
In an exciting development for all players, yesterday Bungie made the decision to unlock all standard armor mods for every player in Destiny 2. This means that all players, regardless of their level of experience or time invested in the game, will now have access to the full range of standard armor mods.
While certain powerful mods such as those found in raids and artifacts will still need to be earned through gameplay, players will no longer be limited by the need to find or purchase specific mods. This opens up a world of possibilities for players to experiment with different builds and playstyles, as well as to easily access popular builds shared online.
This is a great step towards making the game more accessible and enjoyable for all players, and is sure to be met with excitement and enthusiasm by the community.
In a recent “This Week at Bungie” (TWAB) blog post, the studio announced that they will be unlocking all standard armor mods for all players.
This decision was made in light of the upcoming major changes to build crafting in the Lightfall expansion, and is intended to give players a chance to experience all of the standard mods in their current state before the changes take place.
As the studio stated in the blog post, “With big changes coming to buildcrafting in Lightfall, we want to give everyone a chance to enjoy all of the standard mods in their current state for the rest of the Season.”
In addition to this, the studio also mentioned that they will be providing more information on how mods will work differently in the upcoming expansion in next week’s preview.
Players are encouraged to keep an eye out for more information on this, and in the meantime, they can look forward to other quality of life improvements that will be implemented in the game.
Overall, it’s a great move from the developers to make the game more accessible for all players and let them have more fun with the current game before the big changes.
Recent Changes to Game Modes and Events in Destiny 2
In an effort to improve the player experience, Destiny 2 has recently made a number of changes to the way certain game modes and events function.
One such change is the adjustment of the power level required to unlock Grandmaster Nightfalls, which have been lowered to 1580 and now only require players to reach a power level of 1595 to access the full range of difficulty options.
Additionally, the focusing costs for weapons and armor obtained through Trials of Osiris, Crucible, and Gambit have been significantly reduced to 25 Legendary Shards.
Perhaps most notably, the remaining Iron Banner events this season will be much more generous in terms of rewards and progression. Specifically, players will now find it almost twice as easy to reach the rank reset and earn a full set of the highly sought-after vintage Iron Banner armor.
These changes are a welcome improvement for players and will make it easier for them to access and enjoy the most challenging and rewarding content the game has to offer.
Recent times have seen a mixed bag of experiences for players of Destiny 2. While the current Season 19 has been generally well-received for its emphasis on fun and less grindy gameplay, there have also been a number of technical bugs and issues with multiplayer that have caused frustration for players.
One notable example of this was last week’s Iron Banner session, which was plagued by a variety of problems, including players spending hours grinding matches without being able to complete a set of armor.
However, the studio is taking steps to address these issues and improve the player experience. The upcoming changes to the game, such as the unlocking of all standard armor mods, the adjustments in the power level required to unlock Grandmaster Nightfalls, and the reduction of focusing costs for weapons and armor obtained through Trials of Osiris, Crucible, and Gambit will make the game more accessible and enjoyable for all players.
These changes are likely to help earn back some goodwill from the community ahead of the highly-anticipated Lightfall expansion, which is expected to bring significant changes to the game and make it feel like a completely new experience once again.
Destiny 2 is an online multiplayer first-person shooter game developed by Bungie and published by Activision. It is the sequel to the 2014 game Destiny and is set in a shared world. Players take on the role of a Guardian, a protector of Earth’s last city who is able to wield incredible powers.
The game features a variety of game modes, including a story campaign, cooperative and competitive multiplayer, and raids. Players can also engage in a variety of activities, such as public events and patrols, and can earn and collect new weapons, armor, and other equipment to improve their characters and playstyle.
