By now, everyone has a favourite and reliable selection of weapons in Destiny 2. Maybe you like to vomit out a steady stream of bullets with a Scathelocke autorifle or keep things simple with a heavy-hitting hand cannon. You could favour a pulse rifle’s upwards kick to a headshot or the precision of a shotgun to the face.
Hell, you’re probably oiling up your MIDA Multi-Tool for a session in the Trials of the Nine. Point is, is that players have grown comfortable with their gear, resulting in plenty of detail that the engineers at Bungie can use to further fine-tune the experience. And yes, MIDA Multi-Tool is in the crosshairs. Will it get nerfed though? That sounds unlikely, as Bungie detailed how they’re keen on introducing alternatives to an otherwise solid gun.
“Since the launch of Destiny 2, we have been reading your feedback, spectating streams, and watching YouTube videos,” Senior designer Jon Weisnewski said in the latest Bungie weekly blog post.
Very recently, we received our first real batch of player data from our analytics team. We’ve also been shoulder-to-shoulder with you in the trenches daily, playing the ever-loving crud out of this 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…
Destiny 2 will get updates that tune the sandbox experience. We are aware of MIDA Multi-Tool’s popularity and are looking at it very closely. It is popular, but according to our data, there are options out there that match or exceed its effectiveness in all activities. Have you found one? It’s only the first month of a long adventure. 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. As always, thanks for playing, and keep the feedback rolling in.
New guns? NEW GUNS?! NEW GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNS?! If Bungie has an Exotic alternative to MIDA (Please let there be a new SUROS Regime or Monte Carlo in the works) Then I’m down like a clown with the downs for that. Why are you laughing? Poor clown, nobody thinks of the clown. This is serious stuff.
