Furthermore, once a team has banked 25 motes a portal opens up allowing one team member to invade the other side. I enjoyed my time with it except when I got stuck on a team whose players were more concerned with killing enemies than banking motes — grr. Then, sometimes, the cycle repeats itself. So, I think of Destiny as a digital resort.
New expansion blessedly reverses course on the sequel's controversial changes.

‘Destiny 2: Forsaken’ is addictive and fun to play. Until it’s not.
Potentially the best addition for Forsaken is an entirely new enemy type known as the Scorn. No more re-skins here, for once. For example, you can shoot the weapon the flaming Ravagers wield, causing a large explosion of fire that engulfs them and anyone nearby. Thanks to the gaudy towers spewing out from rocky terrain covered in fog the location emits a feeling of mysticism from every corner.

The Dreaming City also surprised my by addressing one of my long-time gripes with the patrol system. The subtle change has actual NPCs in the world deliver the mini-quests to you, and I was delighted to see that Bungie thought of this small, but important gameplay system.
I love hopping in with friends to take on the waves of enemies that flow in from all corners and require you to stay on your toes. All of these additions are complemented by a complete rework of the sandbox, with refinements that bring back what my crew and I loved about the first Destiny but found sorely lacking in Destiny 2 until now.
Bungie has taken its old playground full of confusing mods, armor with boring perks, and bland PVP and revamped all of it to make everything more interesting. If you want to wield any crazy loadout, like three shotguns, you can do that now, which adds more flavor to the mix instead of mandating more practical options. Armor and weapons of the same type will have unique aspects that encourage you to keep different sets until you get that perfect drop.
This makes Destiny 2 feel mysterious again, and each drop is exciting right now as it could be that perfect roll, or bring you one light level closer to the max. Nocking an arrow and lining up a headshot with the No Turning Back bow will result in an explosive pop as the explosive tip finishes off an enemy in spectacular fashion. The Crucible benefits the most from the sandbox changes.

Not only has Bungie addressed the time-to-kill issue so many fans have been asking for adjustments to , but with the weapon and armor changes your rewards are better than ever and could directly impact your PVP performance. This will give you new things to strive toward should a particular weapon shine, or encourage you to figure out new counters which could prompt even more time in-game to earn said weaponry.
This is because it restores super energy when stopping damage.
These bugs have been forsaken.
Gambit mode is another new addition and it truly is superb. Facing off in a mix of PVP and PVE challenges is exhilarating, and planning the appropriate strategy with my team gives me a great feeling of camaraderie and accomplishment. The goal is to kill enemies, grab the motes that drop, and throw them into a bank as fast as you can to spawn enemies and mess with the progress of your opponents. Deposit enough motes and an extremely powerful Primeval will spawn which your team needs to fill full of bullets before the opposition does.

During this entire ordeal the opposing side will be able to invade and try to murder you. When successful, this will make the tricky Primeval regain its health. While I usually focus on the power level grind I found myself enraptured in the experience of stopping invaders with my teammates, and melting final bosses with our carefully planned strategy that we implemented for an amazing streak of wins.
I believe that one of the best ways Bungie has improved the Destiny 2 experience is by respecting your time. Hopefully, Bungie will extend this to all of the new armor and weapons once it figures out what to do with random roll items.
