The latest Destiny 2 update tweaks and fixes a bunch of stuff, from supers to class abilities to weapon balance. Read the full patch notes for everything, though Bungie has actually made a few small changes and additions (Lost Sectors on maps, three-pursuit tracking) that aren’t in the patch notes.
Bungie has shared details on Destiny 2's upcoming Festival of the Lost, which starts October 16. Among other things, there’ll be a new timed mode in Mercury’s Infinite Forest that sounds like it could be cool. We’ll also get a quest to avenge the death of Master Ives, a character I’m sure you totally remember and…
Bungie has detailed a bunch more changes coming to Destiny 2: Forsaken in October. Among other things: an increase to the Malfeasance quest drop rate, reduced Sleeper ammo in Gambit, a Scout rifle PvE damage buff, map names for discovered Lost Sectors, tracking for up to three pursuits, and no prestige Last Wish raid.
Destiny 2: Forsaken has been out for almost a month. That’s been long enough to get a sense of which weapons are good, which are bad, and which you should go out of your way to track down.
Bungie says it’s planning to tweak Masterwork Cores and Exotic engrams in Destiny 2: Forsaken. Masterwork cores are being renamed and there will soon be “more reliable and plentiful Core sources” to make infusing a bit easier. Exotic engrams will soon be more likely to drop something you don’t have, which sure sounds…
Shit has finally gotten real in the Dreaming City, as Bungie has made good on its promises to regularly introduce cool new stuff to the latest Destiny 2 expansion, Forsaken.
Destiny 2's Dreaming City looks... different today. It’s all part of the ongoing Taken Curse storyline, which just got a new chapter. Sounds like it’s nearing its conclusion. Today the game also gets the new Breakthrough PvP mode, three new Crucible maps, and, well, who knows? Possibly another secret or two. We’ll see.
Would you like to see a sidearm called “The Last Dance”? How about four? How about yet another set of Tangled Web Grips? Maybe a pair of Vigil of Heroes hunter boots… or six? Thanks to how Destiny 2 now handles loot, I’ve got all of those and many, many more.

Destiny 2’s new expansion, Forsaken, turns the game into something that people can play as much as they want without running out of things to do. If anything, its tantalizing new pursuits, designed to satisfy the appetites of the series’ most voracious players, may be too life-consuming.
It turns out one of Destiny 2: Forsaken’s most annoying new weapon is bugged after all. In Bungie’s weekly update post for the game yesterday, the studio confirmed that Edge Transit, a legendary grenade launcher introduced in the latest expansion, has indeed been dropping “more frequently than intended.”
Destiny 2’s infusion system allowed players to easily power up their favorite gear to use throughout their adventure. Forsaken has tweaked how upgrading is handled; the change shakes up player’s arsenals and encourages experimentation, at the cost of making customization and identity-building more expensive (and…
I know, we’ve done a Fine Art on Destiny 2 already, but there’s so much amazing work that’s gone into the new expansion that I thought it was worth its own showcase.
Praise the Queen, Destiny 2's Petra Venj is now standing next to the Dreaming City spawn point. She’s got a new quest on offer, and it appears the Hive have begun to take over the City thanks to the curse unleashed by the raid’s completion.
Bungie says it’s aware of reports that Destiny 2's Sleeper Simulant “feels too strong in Gambit,” and that the laser rifle might get tweaked to reduce its dominance. Bungie’s Josh Hamrick added that they’re avoiding nerfs whenever possible in favor of other methods of tweaking the game, and promised to be judicious in…
On my PlayStation 4, it’s still the late summer of 2017, because I’m in the early stages of Destiny 2. So far it’s both better and worse than I expected.
Impact Props, the same team responsible for Nathan Fillion’s personal sidearm, have since made a replica Ace of Spades that looks as realistic as a fake Destiny weapon could possibly look.
There are a lot of cool weapons in Destiny, which is one of the reasons it’s such a popular game. Here are the top five drops in the latest expansion, which launched last week for PC and consoles.
Bungie says they’ve found a fix for the bug that cost some Destiny 2: Forsaken players their weekly powerful rewards over the weekend. The fix will go out in a new hotfix on Thursday, and players who were affected will get the gear they missed, just in time for the raid.
Destiny 2’s Forsaken expansion introduces a lot of new stuff to the game, but the most significant addition is a new hybrid competitive/cooperative mode called Gambit. It’s a hell of a lot of fun, once you know what you’re doing.
