Bungie announced many updates for Destiny 2 following their recent ‘This Week At Bungie’ post. Everything from new Crucible content to community events. The blog post is quite the read so we’ll be talking about some key changes and updates making their way to Destiny 2 soon. If you’d like to check out the full blog post you can view that here.
Firstly, Bungie put a spotlight on Trans Awareness Week which runs from November 13th, 2022 to November 19th, 2022. With this highlight, Bungie is offering players the chance to unlock the Be True emblem using the code ML3-FD4-ND9 on their code redemption site. Alongside this, Bungie reiterated that all profits from the Bungie Pride Pin in the month of November will benefit the National Center for Transgender Equality.
Bungie also announced a new community event: Improving The Eliksni Quarter. As many players will have noticed the Eliksni are inhabiting a number of areas around the Tower. While Spider has found a cozy spot to set up shop many Eliksni are still without walls or roofs in their residences. Misraaks is calling on players to help improve this situation. Starting November 22nd, 2022, players can collect treasure in the form of Captain’s Coin which can be donated to the Eliksni Quarter. This will allow Spider to make improvements to the quarter while allowing Misraaks and Eido to devote time to researching the Relics of Nezarec. This event will only run for two weeks and based on donations players can earn an emblem, upgrade materials, and a new swashbuckling Ghost Shell.
There were also changes made to Destiny 2′s security before the inclusion of Destiny 2‘s competitive Crucible mode. The Security Team noted that “The team is continuing to improve upon detections and mitigations gained with BattlEye. With their help, we have implemented a mitigation against network tools used to gain an unfair advantage in various activities. We will continue to collect data and observe this behavior to strengthen our detections as time goes on. Competition is best when fair. While we are evaluating this data, we will continue to issue bans to those abusing these methods.”
The main news however from this recent update is the inclusion of Destiny 2‘s Competitive Division which is set to act as a ranked PvP mode. Alongside this, Bungie is also making various adjustments to playlists and the Crucible ecosystem including collapsing Control and Clash into a single playlist, bringing less-played game modes into a weekly rotation, introducing a new Crucible Seal, and giving players more ways to engage with Crucible rewards by bringing engram focusing to Lord Shaxx.
