5 Destiny 2 Exotic armor pieces that deserve an ornament (2022)

Destiny 2 is a community-focused game, and the developers love to be open about their ongoing projects. While this has been reduced due to the recent toxicity and harassment towards the devs, Bungie is still pretty transparent regarding their updates and any ongoing fixes. In a TWAB (This Week At Bungie) from August 4, the company revealed its plans to release an Exotic skin with the help of the community. Players can pick either one of three Exotics: Sweet Business, Arbalest, or the Rat King. The chosen skin will be made by one of the artists from the Destiny 2 community. That said, seeing how Bungie is starting to hire more artists for skins, players might have a chance to get some ornaments for their favorite gear. Of over a hundred diff...

Bungie Reduces Communication With Destiny 2 Community After Threats

Bungie has confirmed that it has been intentionally reducing its communication with the Destiny 2 community after excessive harassment and threats directed at the studio. Bungie has always been a very transparent studio, even going back to its days on the Halo series. Not only would it actively engage with the community via special in-game events and content, but it would also release things like the vidocs, which were behind-the-scenes videos that highlighted the development of its games. They were incredibly well received and a breath of fresh air for a notoriously secretive industry that largely has to keep things airtight due to the ever-changing nature of game development.Nonetheless, Bungie has been less engaged with its community in recent weeks and months.

Bungie’s ‘Destiny 2’ Silence Is Due To ‘Real Threats Towards Our People And Studio’

Destiny 2 Bungie If you’re a Destiny 2 player, chances are you may have noticed a shift in communication from Bungie, where its employees were normally pretty open about chatting about the game, and we’d get massive, deep-dive TWABs or State of the Game posts with relative frequency. Interactions on Twitter or in reddit threads about the specifics of the game were common. But now? Most of that has stopped. The scores of Bungie employees I follow are mostly just tweeting about personal things, and if there is anything that has to do with the company, it’s usually sharing open job listings. There’s almost no direct engagement about the game itself. And that’s on purpose. Responding in a reddit thread about how players missed hearing from Bungie in the subreddit li...

Destiny 2’s Solstice Quest Is Bugged, Here’s How To Fix It

Destiny 2 Bungie One of the problems with a live service game is that when you do things like launch limited time seasons or events, you often don’t really have the time or ability to find and fix all the bugs you might run into before it’s too late. That may be the case with Destiny 2’s Solstice event right now, where players are discovering some progress-blocking bugs that are wrecking the event in a few different ways. I do not have all the answers, but I do know a bit about one specific Destiny 2 Solstice bug that people keep coming across that has to do with Eva’s armor-enhancing questline, and how to fix it. One frequent issue players keep running into is that when they try to start the event on their second or third character, they are not getting progress ...
