Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike and Prestige Raid Will Change

Activision and Bungie presents multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny 2 has been doing pretty well since the release. The developers have made some significant changes to a part of Destiny and Destiny 2, the weekly Nightfall strikes. Since Nightfall strikes are considered one of the hardest in the game and has been receiving a lot of opinions lately, Bungie decides to shake things up a little alongside the difficulties of Prestige raids in upcoming updates.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike and Prestige Raid Will Change

In original Destiny, there was no timer in Nightfall and players could just wander around the whole time of the game to avoid enemies but when the sequel have introduced this new feature, that is no longer possible. Addressing this issue that raised a few controversies, Bungie decided to bring some change to it so that the glory it had back in the days are restored once again.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Strike Scoring

RELATED: Destiny 2 Crimson Days Event Announced

According to game director Christopher Barrett, when version 1.1.3 update for Destiny 2 will launch on February 27, players will see where the game is going from there. Strike scoring system of the game will also be changed a bit, so that you actually want to go looking for a kill instead of ditching them all the time. Like it or not, that's really good for your gaming spirit.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Challenge Card

When the update will go live, it will work somewhat like this:

  • The overall score of your group will include the solo scores of your team members, which will also show up in strike leaderboards. The performance of every single members of the team will be summed up to the score.

  • Only kills are what matters most to the score after the update. How often do you use your super abilities and generate Orbs of Light also counts though.

  • Playing it quicker will be rewarding for your score but if you take too much time, you only better your chances of lowering your score. For instance, if you already have spent 15 minutes into the game, you will only receive half the points. 18 minutes and you won't earn any more new points. So, finish the strike as early as possible.

  • It would be really painful to see your score diminished over time but considering everything else the same, if another team in the strike clears before you then they get higher score than yours.

Following the version 1.1.3 update, you will be able to earn Challenge Cards right after you complete a Nightfall game, which will only be applicable for the Prestige version of the strike. Players can now tune in their preferred difficulty settings using new modifiers (Arc/Solar Singe/Void) tied to these cards. These unique modifiers will either boost damage or help you score high despite your less damage rate.

Destiny 2 Inverted Spire Emblem

RELATED: Destiny 2 Warlock Glitch Will Fix After "The Dawning"

Bungie will introduce a special emblem to Nightfall strike for Destiny 2, which will generate an aura over the head of your Guardian on the display only if you can go beyond a certain score. Crossing that specific mark will not just raise Vanguard token drops by 25 percent but your entire fireteam will receive buff as well as you. However, before bringing all these changes to the update, the developer team wants to get more feedback on their current idea from players.

The Inverted Spire Emblem

The Prestige mode for Eater of Worlds has been pushed to May and there is a five-month long lag with the Leviathan, which almost everyone is complaining about right now. The developers simply didn't want to release it as it currently is and they just wanted to add some flavors of their own to make it worth your time. Because, for the past couple of months, Bungie was working on it by testing out new ways to add difficulties and try to increase the replaying value of the raid.

Destiny 2 Nightfall Modifier

Prestige Raids will also present different challenges to you every week and the challenges will vary each time. For example, you can be forced to undergo an entire raid with a specific gun for your guardian against deadly enemies. The objective of new Prestige mode here is to keep the players engaged by switching new weapons to your vault and more rewards to earn. This update isn't going to drop until May for all Leviathan raid though.

Released to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Destiny 2 became an instant hit and also was one of the most successful titles of 2017. Despite that, many in-game issues have been drawing players out of the game and Bungie is taking these new initiatives to attract back the gamers back in the fold to make it great again.

Destiny 2 Crimson Days Event Announced

Back in the time of online-based multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny, developer Bungie used to have Valentine’s Day-themed seasonal event Crimson Days. Now that Destiny 2 is the newest installment in the series that is immensely successful on all platforms and Valentine’s Day is coming next week, they are bringing the event back once again for this very special occasion to celebrate with the fans and let them have some fun too.

Right before the big-day love, on February 13, Crimson Days event will be going live for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Much like the previous instance, it will be a competitive multiplayer mode for 2v2 matches on a Crucible map called The Burnout, previously known as the Burning Shrine. In these round-based Clash mode game, you should try to keep up with your teammate for quick recharge of your abilities.

RELATED: Destiny 2 Warlock Glitch Will Fix After "The Dawning"

Another reason to not get too far from your partner is that you will lose buff and your awaiting enemy will easily find you using a waypoint. Even if you get detached from your colleague for a while, there is a marker to guide you back again. This can be proven very handy when you are teaming-up with some random person for the lack of a partner in Destiny 2. The game has an efficient matchmaking system so that if you join the match solo, you can still find someone to partner up.

RELATED: Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 Becomes Best-Selling on 2017

One of the primary perks of 2018's Crimson Days event is the chance of getting handful of cosmetic items. According to Bungie, completing the Crimson Days Crucible playlist firsthand will be the best way to earn rewards and the rewarding system is centered on single-character play. Most of the time, you will find rewards in a new Crimson Engram and there is a “knock-out” list to make sure that you don't end up having duplicate items like during The Dawning.

RELATED: Destiny 2 XP Scaling System Removed


Aside from all these regular prizes, Bungie claims to have other special rewards that can only be achieved through certain means.

  • To get the Fire of the Crimson Days Emblem and the Tirastrella Ghost Shell, you have to finish five Crimson Days matches for completing “Welcome to Crimson Days” highlight and you have to pay Lord Shaxx a visit in the Tower.

  • The Undeterred Exotic Sparrow gun can be yours upon completion of Crimson Days Crucible playlist.

  • By completing Leviathan Raid or the Raid Lair: Eater of Worlds you can achieve the sick-looking Dieselpunk Exotic Ornament for Wardcliff Coil straight outta final chest.

  • Earn the Flaunting Dance Emote by finishing Nightfall Strike within the Crimson Days event week.

Regardless of your actions on Crimson Days, you and your partner will get an Illuminated Engram and a Crimson Engram as soon as you level up. Crimson Engrams are of course, not limited to this seasonal event of Destiny 2 and you can only achieve them from gameplay so that no one can claim for any attempt of forcing players to spend real-world money. From the in-game store Eververse, you can buy gears and items in exchange for Bright Dust, which will also be added to the “knock-out” list.

RELATED: Bungie on Destiny 2 PC Bans


Since Crimson Engrams are not limited to Crimson Days, there's no cap on how many of them you can earn. However, there is a level cap for your Guardian and if you are a non-DLC owner, then it is 20. For those who own the Curse of Osiris DLC expansion will need to reach 25 to be eligible for level-up reward Engrams.

RELATED: Destiny 2 McFarlane Figures First Look

You can also consider Bungie being this much generous with Crimson Days to compensate the players for from last year’s The Dawning event, which saw quite a backlash from the disappointed fans. So, bringing back a popular Mercury-based map from the original Destiny was not a bad idea. Debuting on February 13, Crimson Days event will run for a week to come until February 20.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Maps

On November 3, 2017, first person shooter Call of Duty: WWII was released from Sledgehammer Games and Activision as the latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise. Within two months of its initial release not only the game brought $1 billion, it also managed to become one of the record-breaking bestselling console game from Activision. If you have already finished the game and wondering what else is next, you've got the very first DLC of CoD: WWII incoming.

Call of Duty: WWII Resistance DLC Multiplayer Map Details

Previously, Activision showcased another preview trailer for The Resistance DLC pack detailing what players can expect to find and the studio has been developing this expansion.




Although, many of the players are currently busy with the first community event "Winter Siege", we believe this new trailer for the first DLC of Call of Duty: WWII titled "The Resistance" is worth to look at.




The Resistance DLC of CoD: WWII is bringing three brand-new multiplayer maps to explore as well as a new War Mode mission called Operation Intercept. Also, let's not just forget about "The Darkest Shore" for Nazi Zombies mode. The expansion pack will drop on PlayStation 4 next week on January 30, only a month before arriving on PC and Xbox One.

War Mode - Operation Intercept
Probably one of the best features of The Resistance expansion pack is the brand-new War Mode mission: Operation Intercept. Operation Intercept is mostly comprised of rescue missions set in urban locations outside of St. Lo, France. Players are tasked as Allied Forces members to rescue French resistance fighters from the Axis foes and lead them to safety. Once freed, the next objective is to destroy all the key communication gears and lead a tank to an Axis train carrying weapons.

The Axis side will try to keep the Allies from retrieving the Resistance fighters to join their cause. They will also guard their comms and halt the tank from reaching the train at any cost. Since the Axis soldiers are well equipped to repair their damaged radios, the objective will not be so easy to complete. This however, is not the only challenge that will force you to rethink your moves, Call of Duty: WWII has much more in stock to keep you entertained.

RELATED: Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 Becomes Best-Selling on 2017

For now, we've shed enough light on Operation Intercept, so let's focus on the three new multiplayer maps The Resistance has to offer.

Map 1: Valkyrie
Set in the Masurian Woods, East Prussia, Valkyrie is the first map that comes along with the DLC. This one is based on The Wolf’s Lair of Hitler, which he used as his Eastern-front headquarters when Nazi forces were invading the Soviet Union. It's the site of Operation Valkyrie, where attempts of taking down the Führer in real-world by his high-ranking officers and failed eventually. This medium-sized map demands that you keep an eye on several overwatch positions and mounted machine guns in places.

Map 2: Anthropoid
The second multiplayer map Anthropoid is also inspired by a real event called Operation Anthropoid from the time of World War II, where a high-ranking German officer was the target on an assassination attempt. Anthropoid map is located in occupied Prague, Czechoslovakia and because of the urban setting of the map; you will experience a unique diversity of gameplay on this one.

Map 3: Occupation
The final map on the list, Occupation and is a remake of a classic Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 map Resistance. This one involves the players to gunning around the streets of a German-occupied Paris and there are a lot of mid-range combats. Occupation is one of the most iconic pieces for the Resistance movement during World War II that it had to be included in The Resistance DLC. While you are playing in it, you can even notice the Eiffel Tower in the background at some point.

RELATED: Call of Duty: WW2 Nazi Zombies Details

The developers have entertained the idea of pitting the heroes in an island layered in fog everywhere and you don't often see the zombies coming unless they are only five feet away from you. So, just shooting their head clean off isn't working anymore. You need to take more strategic approach to them with your team while you work on your melee and stealth. Fortunately, your heroes will have access to new tools to help them out and one of them is a powerful Rip Saw.

Destiny 2 Warlock Glitch Will Fix After "The Dawning"

Bungie's Destiny 2 has become one of the most successful games of the year 2017 but for the past few weeks, the game has been suffering from bugs and glitches. First there was trouble with their XP scaling system, the Curse of Osiris DLC faced complaints and now, they got another problem with the Crucible. Destiny 2 players have discovered a glitch in the Crucible's Mayhem mode which will let the Voidwalker subclass Warlocks to use their super attack for an unlimited number of times.

Destiny 2 Warlock Glitch Will Fix After "The Dawning"

Normally there is a certain period for cooldowns once you use your super attack, class abilities or grenades during play. This time phase however is significantly lessened while you are playing the Mayhem mode. So, the spawning of Super meters of your opponents is relatively faster than usual, making it harder for you to take them out. Obviously, the out of control in-game experience then becomes what the name of the mode suggests in the first place.

RELATED: Destiny 2 XP Scaling System Removed

While this limited time cooldowns were already too much to handle for some players, the glitch allows the Warlocks to use their Voidwalker subclass to use infinite amount of super and bombs. In Chaos Accelerant perk, you can overcharge your grenades and it lets the Warlocks make their bombs more damaging. After this was discovered, there has been a barrage of Nova Bombs to exploit the situation. As the issue was Bungie's responsibility to fix, they aren't banning anyone who is about to take advantage of the situation here.

Currently, there is a Destiny 2's seasonal event, The Dawning in progress where the Mayhem mode is letting this glitch to cause all sorts of chaos at the hands of the Warlocks. Developer Bungie has weighed in on this issue and announced that the bug is staying until The Dawning ends. Since the event will be ongoing up until Tuesday, January 9, we are not having that glitch fixed before 2018. Now, the developers are in a tight corner. As if they cancelled out the Mayhem mode for The Dawning, it will enrage the players and leaving the glitch as it is will do no good either.

RELATED: Destiny 2 McFarlane Figures First Look

Destiny 2 players are fed up on the developer studio for quite some times recently because of recent bug-ridden weeks, especially with the ones that are not being fixed even after their constant complaints. Bungie thought, with the release of the new Curse of Osiris DLC and two main patches, Destiny 2 will get back in the game but looks like they are not having any luck with that yet. Both Destiny 2 and Curse of Osiris DLC is currently available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide.

As 2017 is nearing to the end, many console gamers are probably wondering how well their favorite games did on the market. Because, not all game that were released over the year didn't do very well as they were expected to and then there are titles that did exceptionally well. Recently, publisher Activision has revealed one such news regarding two of their most successful titles of the year over consoles; Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2.

Call of Duty: WWII single handedly brought $1 billion from worldwide release in November, which is pretty outstanding considering the last installment from Call of Duty series titled Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare failed to reach out expectations set by everyone on so many levels. Plus, Infinite Warfare is deemed as commercial failure and with the booming success of WWII, seems like Activision is getting back in the gear once again and the future of the series is safe for now.

They acknowledged that not only Call of Duty: WWII has earned them some big bucks, it also is the record-breaking bestselling console game for the company now. Call of Duty has always been a successful gaming franchise for the past nine years and with the impressive dominance of the recent entry of WWII, the series proved the power of its very own fan base once more. At the 2017 Game Awards, WWII was picked up as the contender for best multiplayer game.

Plus, most of us haven't still forgotten the huge controversy regarding loot boxes and micro-transaction system in Star Wars Battlefront II.

Bungie on Destiny 2 PC Bans

Bungie's heavily expected online-only multiplayer first-person shooter Destiny 2 has launched on PC this October 24 and fans were pretty hyped about it. The game eventually released on that day to everyone's delight and what the internet saw the next day is many players are complaining that many of them has been banned from the game for apparent no good reason.

Some of them even came to speculate that the ban might be a result of them using many third party softwares like Discord and Open Broadcaster Software.

Bungie Explains Destiny 2 PC Bans

The developer team at Bungie decided to shade some light on it and they did so by releasing a Blog Post on their official website. Addressing the ban issue, they claimed that so far, Bungie has banned over 400 players and it was not because of using any third party softwares. At this point, the ban might seem quite unjust and irrational to the players who were a victim of this.

So, being the developer responsible for this insanely popular franchise, Bungie took matters into their hands to calm down the folks and shared their official Blog Post regarding the ban on Twitter.



As the collective base of banned players took social platforms like Reddit, Twitter and many other online gaming forums claiming that the ban was due to the use of third party programs they all were using while playing Destiny 2. Primarily, they even made it up a theory for the ban spree because apparently, almost all of them were using some third party applications like Discord or OBS for stream overlays and chat services. Some even claimed that the ban is automatic and is within Destiny 2 after all.

On that point, official statement released in the Blog clearly says:

“ONLY BUNGIE CAN BAN A PLAYER AFTER A MANUAL INVESTIGATION”
To clear out the confusion and rumor regarding the claim and put it to a rest, developers of Bungie also mentioned that, this ban issue was solely related to people who were using tools that might threaten the shared environment for the game and nothing else. Also, the game cannot ban anyone, only Bungie can and they do it after they run a manual investigation.

They also updated their online statement with the fact that, Bungie is not going to ban people for using Discord, Xsplit, OBS, RTSS, etc. while playing Destiny 2. The developer team also addresses that they noticed the group of players that are unintentionally caught in this error will soon be unbanned.

Well, this popular franchise always finds itself on the center of social drama and given their previous history on that, it would've been quite surprising if they weren't any after this week’s PC launch of Destiny 2. However, you can be rest assured that all they are doing is to provide you a fair environment to share with countless other fans of the series, completely free of hackers and other internet scum.

Destiny 2 Ending Explained

As soon as Destiny 2 Was Officially Announced by Bungie, it created all sorts of hype to the world of gaming and that intensified with Destiny 2 Teaser Trailer and Destiny 2 Reveal Trailer respectively. When the game finally released, Destiny 2 is Proven Better Than Destiny. To Bungie's credit, they have brought a significant change of the overall experience. Some of those changes are good, others are not too much.

Destiny 2 Ending Explained

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR DESTINY 2.

The best thing by far about this sequel is the way of their storytelling system. Though Destiny had a lot to tell the players, it did but in a way that failed to cheer everyone up. You can go ahead and only find the interesting backstory of the game Destiny by only finding and unlocking Grimoire cards during the game. This is how, Bungie managed to make it boring and leave the players uninterested about what the plot stands for.

Destiny Grimoire Cards

In Destiny 2, you don't have to chase after Grimoire cards anymore. That was meaningless anyway. Instead, you will learn more of the game, its story and every other thing that should be your concern as you play and progress throughout the game. You might as well forget the ending within or after a few hours but it will reveal a few things that you won't see coming. Now that makes sense. Slightly.

Playing Destiny 2‘s story campaign, the Guardian players are playing with will come face to face with the notorious leader of the Red Legion; Dominus Ghaul during the final mission. Ghaul is here to steal the Light of the Traveler as he believes that he and his legion are the ones who truly deserve it. He kept the Speaker as his prisoner and by the time you will reach the end, his mentor the Consul would have the Speaker executed. After the player defeats him, Ghaul will be resurrected with an otherworldly Light.

The Traveler Awakens

This time, the villain is near-invincible and seemingly winning but then something unusual happens. The Traveler wakes up from his long slumber which lasted from the events of Destiny to Destiny 2. For long time, The Traveler stayed dormant on his tower and sent the Ghosts to help the Guardians with the Light so that they can protect Earth. Traveler begins glowing when Ghaul became a threat, causing the Red Legion to fall and the villain getting destroyed by a surge of light.

For the first time in a long period, this is the first time The Traveler made a move and that undoubtedly makes it one of the most memorable memories of Destiny 2. There is one more significant reveal that is kept hidden until the final boss fight, which is regarding the Speaker.

All these time he was not vouching for the Traveler but pushing hidden agendas of his own while leading everyone else to believe otherwise. This changes the perspective a lot of things about the Traveler but until Bungie decides to drop the next expansion pack, we cannot say anything for certain.

New Threat For Destiny

Upon destroying Dominus Ghaul, the Light of The Traveler doesn't stop there. Instead, it starts wandering and then spread across the galaxy, crossing Saturn’s ring and then beyond that as well. After spreading across the vast solar system of the universe, if finally reaches a collective of a few pyramid-shaped ships. As soon as the Light enters these dormant vessels, they come alive and set their course to Earth.

This scene may have just teased what we can expect from the Destiny series in the upcoming future. Never before these ships have appeared in any of the Destiny game but it's not like Bungie has talked about them for the first time. Back in 2013, these ships actually showed up in the concept art for the first installment of the series. Although the developers have unveiled many secrets in-game but still, there are more to reveal in future.

Writer Joseph Staten and art director Chris Barrett of the game Destiny have presented the concept art on 2013 on a presentation at Game Developer’s Conference and that was before Destiny was released one year after on 2014. The ships were in the arts and Barrett eventually went on calling them “giant onyx pyramid ships” but then stopped reminding us that he is not allowed to spill any more beans.

Destiny Enemy Races

Those concept arts from Bungie presented five of game’s enemy alien races and four of them are already revealed as Fallen, Hive, Vex and Cabal. However, the fifth race with few pyramid-shaped ships and a cloudy black force was yet not introduced properly. Veteran players are already speculating that this mysterious fifth race may be the Darkness, a threat unlike any other.

As it is considered the arch-nemesis of the Traveler, anyone with a connection to the Light is a target of it. Even though, the guesses are seeming pretty legit, this also might be something else but whoever it is, it has sensed the Light and now it is headed towards Earth. Possibly to create havoc and usher destruction.

the speaker destiny 2
Fall of The Speaker

Improving every aspects of their project, Bungie truly outdid themselves in terms of Destiny 2 and that means, we are about to get a much more interesting saga up next. We know that the Speaker is dead but some of the most recent leaks suggest that one of his former apprentice Osiris is going to feature in the first expansion pack of the game. Sounds like a coincidence? I think not. Osiris has a very different perspective of looking at things than his deceased master and that will probably change a lot of stuffs.

The Guardians were brought back with new life and gifts to protect humanity and halt the Darkness. With the introduction of Osiris and the death of the Speaker, everything if forming a pattern, which is, the game is going somewhere. In future, perhaps many of the Guardians will take an alternate route of Destiny and as a new enemy is already on its way, the Traveler will lead the Guardians with the Light.

Destiny 2 is already out worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but if you want to play the game on PC, then you will have to patiently wait until October 24, 2017.
