As previously reported, the Destiny 2 beta features all of the content of the PS4 and Xbox One beta, including the Homecoming story mission and Inverted Spire Strike.
Sandbox designer Josh Hamrick then revealed the other changes coming to the Destiny 2 PC beta, starting off with the fixes for glitches for infinite Supers, infinite grenades, and the Warlock Glide. Bungie will also increase the winning score in Control from 75 to 100, and extend the trigger for the Mercy rule. This mode will ensure that you're matched more fairly with players closer to your skill level. We have also made improvements to the way we calculate your skill in Countdown to better reflect how you'll perform against your opponents.
As detailed by Crucible Design Lead Lars Bikken, the developers have been keeping their eyes on player's activities in the console beta and have used what they've learned to further tailor the multiplayer experience - in particular, online matchmaking. Namely, bugs that offered infinite grenades, "gliding" for Warlocks, and infinite Super attacks were squashed. Players can also expect that Warlocks, like all other classes in the game, now have the same Melee Range. Our PC friends will get a chance to experience a world with consistent base melee ranges. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super". However, before the scheduled launch, the game developer will roll out changes to the game.
Also in the latest issue of Edge Magazine, Bungie makes it known that Destiny 2's open beta didn't contain the final version of how Energy weapons are supposed to work against AI combatants with elemental shields. It seems that the game didn't improve much at all, but we'll just have to wait and see until the game hits shelves next month. In response to player feedback, the charge times for Supers have been reduced, while both grenade damage and the amount of power ammo have been increased in PvE game modes.
TWEAKED: Increased Power Ammo drops in PvE This is something we had felt internally and have been slowly tuning up over the last several weeks. The PC beta has been updated with our new values and will provide much more heavy ammo in PvE than what was found before.
