This Week in Destiny 2

I’M COMMANDER SHEPARD AND…

…This is our latest collaboration in the Last City! We know you all are busy with calibrations, but this Tuesday we announced something new. Ornament sets inspired by Commander Shepard, Garrus Vakarian, and Dr. Liara T’Soni are coming to Destiny 2 on February 13. ’To celebrate this awesome partnership with BioWare, we’ll also have an Exotic Sparrow, an Exotic ship, and an Exotic Ghost available to all players at no cost, as well as a new finisher and an Exotic emote at the Eververse, all inspired by the sci-fi universe where “Reaper” means more than a class item mod.

We’ll share Mordin details very soon, but for now, here’s a preview of what’s to come!

FIRETEAM FINDER: LOOKING FORWARD

First off, we wanted to thank you for trying the new Fireteam Finder feature! We appreciate your patience and participation in the original Raids Stress Test and the subsequent Fireteam Finder Beta. We’re humbled by the outpouring of positive feedback and suggestions. Please do keep them coming. Our focus in the coming months is to make the experience feel complete, both in and out of the game. To that end, we have some new updates incoming!

COMPANION APP ♥ GAME CLIENT

For the uninitiated, the Destiny 2 Companion app boasts a well-loved looking-for-group (LFG) tool called Find Fireteam, and we’re hard at work updating it with a more unified experience across the Destiny 2 Companion app, game client, and (eventually) Bungie.net. In a future update, players will be able to create and join Fireteam Finder lobbies from their mobile devices and from within the game.  Like the in-game version, this initial release of Fireteam Finder on the Destiny 2 Companion app will be part of the beta experience, so we welcome your continued feedback!

IN-GAME UPDATES

Next, we’re hard at work on some exciting in-game updates as well. We’ve already made significant strides in improving the Fireteam Finder feature, with over 60 bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements presently in-game! Some highlights of these changes include an animated sheen when the lobby host has new pending applications, improved text chat channel color legibility, and improved performance when inspecting players through Fireteam Finder Applications.

In the near future, be on lookout for other improvements, including Fireteam Finder lobby voice chat, friend invites to Fireteam Finder lobbies, improved menu-to-menu flow, better feedback when you apply to lobbies, and, last but not least, the roster will once again fit 12 Guardians on the Nearby column. All in, there are an additional 70 bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements slated for the next six-to-eight months (many of which come directly from community feedback).

BY THE NUMBERS

We’re seeing that groups formed in Fireteam Finder are completing activities at similar rates to other LFG tools.

DOUBLE THE UZUME NEXT WEEK

Next week, not only will Uzume RR4 (an amazing Sniper Rifle both for PvE and PvP) be the weekly reward for Nightfall completions, but Zavala is feeling generous and will give away double rewards and increased reputation. What better moment to get a hold on that Fourth Time’s the Charm and Deconstruct roll? Or maybe you prefer the Snapshot and Incandescent combo?

If you just need to finish a Grandmaster Nightfall for Guardian Ranks or the Conqueror title, that’s fine, too! Remember, you will have access to all you haven’t completed yet, so you can earn it in a single sitting, and you can use Fireteam Finder to find a group willing to help you.

RELIC IS BACK

Relic is one of our newer PvP modes, where proficiency with tools we’ve used in the past is rewarded with loot and Shaxx’s highly motivational screaming. Starting next Tuesday, Relic will be back for four weeks. The Aegis, the Synaptic Spear, and the Scythe await you.

INCREASED SHARD DROP RATES IN THE COIL

Back in the first few days of Season of the Wish, as players were just starting to wrap their heads around The Coil, we saw Platinum success rates of around 35 to 50%, which were a bit lower than we expected. Based on the data at the time, we announced plans to make the activity a bit more forgiving for players to reach Platinum in the future.

However, by the end of the second week, we were already seeing 70 to 85% of all successful completions reaching Platinum, as players got better at tackling this activity. On top of that, roughly half of those teams didn’t even kill the Glass Collector to reach their score. These numbers have held steady throughout the Season so far, but we’re here to give everyone else a little nudge.

Even with these high numbers in mind, we still want to make sure more players get their hands on all that sweet loot waiting for them at the end of a Platinum run. Starting on February 6, we’ll be increasing the Wishing Glass Shard drop rates from defeating enemies in The Coil to make hitting Platinum even more achievable. Good luck out there!

7,777,777 SWORD KILLS ACHIEVED

You did it, Guardians! Thank you for taking care of our little pest problem while Geralt enjoys some well-deserved time off traveling the beautiful lands of Toussaint. As we promised, here is a universal code for the Adventurous Spirit emblem for taking down 7,777,777 enemies with Swords. Now you can add “Amateur Monster Hunter” to your resume, just after “Saladin’s Young Wolf.”

Which Daughter of Oryx do you take down first: the one on the right or the one on the left? Anyway, we couldn’t choose one this time. They’re both too awesome!
