The 25th of July is the last day that the Destiny 2 Beta will be live. It has been a long weekend for Guardians all over the world, and an even longer testing week for players who preordered the game.
Multiple Concerns Have Risen
People are worried. As evidenced by the feedback pouring in on sites like Reddit and the Bungie forums, there are multiple concerns rising from the build of the game. Players are raising their voices to talk about bugs, issues with ability recharge rates, weapon damage, and many more issues.
A good example of this is the Hunter in the Beta. The Hunter is given a high rate of fire Sniper Rifle as a Power Weapon. This rifle doesn't function very well in PvE environments, requiring more than two shots to take down a standard Cabal soldier. This is just one of the many issues people have noticed about the Beta.
Bungie Knows What's Happening
The PVE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old. So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting.
In the recent This Week at Bungie post, the development team had this statement.
It is very important to note that the Beta is a few builds old. Bungie is tuning the weapons and classes as we speak. The Beta was, above all else, a stress test for Bungie servers and not a gameplay test.
However, you must still take every opportunity you have to report issues you feel are game breaking. The Bungie.net forums are available to all players who wish to report in-game issues, whether in PvP or PvE.
