Bungie Details Future Updates For Destiny 2

Bungie has released the first major update for Destiny 2 in 2018, version 1.1.2. But it’s already making plans for what 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 will bring. Version 1.1.2 brought Masterwork armor and and revised raid rewards, while 1.1.3, scheduled for February 27, brings scoring to Nightfall. The update is planned to bring new unique rewards to Nightfall, as well, but Bungie clarifies that this might slip to a later update. Finally, 1.1.4 will arrive on March 27. This update is centered around Sandbox and Crucible, adding in penalties for players who quit Crucible matches, and an algorithm change to reduce repeat s in strike playlists and the Crucible. Most crucially, 1.1.4 brings 6 on 6 to Destiny 2, though only for the Iron Banner playlist.
Bungie also detailed a long list of changes to the Sandbox, dubbed the Go Fast Update, including:
  • Supers recharge faster for everyone!
  • We’ve buffed several weapon archetypes (including, but not limited to, Hand Cannons, Pulse Rifles, Sniper Rifles, and Shotguns) and a few specific perks, as well.
    • A key goal here is to make Shotguns, Snipers, and Fusion rifles more prevalent in the game.
  • We’ve also been working side-by-side with our friends on PvP to increase the pace of PvP combat and the frequency of power play. Here’s a sneak peek at their hard work:
    • Player respawn times for all Quickplay modes have been decreased.

The full list of possible changes can be found at the weekly update post.
