A revered weapon returned in a giant Destiny 2 replace final night time, the honking nice hand cannon of legend, The Last Word. It could be the fancy headline function, and quietly nudge elements of the story alongside too, however the replace’s additionally notable for an enormous variety of stability tweaks. Some skills are toned down, some powered up, and a few in some way made even worse, whereas whole courses of weapons have turn out to be extra helpful. Whichever class you play and nevertheless, you’ll wish to flick via the patch notes to see what’s completely different.
The Last Word is understood inside Destiny for being a monster within the first game, although as the primary game didn’t come to PC I solely comprehend it via the lorelogs the place a irritating quantity of Destiny’s plot is hidden. In brief, a giant hero used this revolver to hunt naughty males, and we’re attending to play with it too.
First we should full The Draw, a quest chain involving grinding via numerous PvE and PvP challenges. I banged these out in a night, and it’s capped with a brief however candy new mission set in a spot that’s been woefully under-used to this point. Visit the Drifter to begin the search. And you’ll want the season cross, obvs.
It’s a curious gun, a short-range and fast-firing revolver you possibly can even fan at full-auto, with a number of perks encouraging firing from the hip moderately down the sights. PvP modes are the place it’s clearly purported to stay, occupying a mid-range between shotguns and bangier hand cannons, although I’ve not performed with mine sufficient to have a way of how good it’s but (and I hear it handles very in another way on consoles and PC?). I can inform you matches won’t go in addition to Bungie’s video makes out.
In phrases of stability, I’m nonetheless undecided the way it all shakes out in PvE or PvP. Golden Gun will get an enormous harm increase in opposition to bosses, Blade Barrage is extra constant however weaker, Nova Bomb will get boosted, Nova Warp will get whacked, and all different supers get touches. Auto rifles, scout rifles, and rapid-fire sniper rifles deal extra harm, Telesto is much less monstrous in PvP, and… many issues. Yet in some way One-Eyed Mask continues to be untouched – for now.
A couple of good little touches are in too. The quest to get the mega-rad Whisper Of The Worm unique sniper rifle is now accessible every single day and thru each Lost Oasis occasion, making it much less elusive. Now the thriller has lifted a little bit, I’m glad extra folks will get to see one of the vital attention-grabbing locations within the game. Plus, Ballistics Logs to commerce with Ada-1 aren’t wiped each week. And, most significantly, the knife flip emote now loops endlessly.
I’m nonetheless curious to see what may occur to Destiny 2 now Bungie have split up with Activision to self-publish. Bungie are quietly drawing out a number of story threads, each with The Dreaming City and the Drifter, forward of the following season of the annual cross however they’re nonetheless not saying fairly what can be in that content material blast. Assuming they don’t preserve hiding developments in lorelogs and hidden areas many gamers will miss.
Oh! Do cease by the Eververse retailer to splash a little bit Bright Dust (I had greater than sufficient simply from enjoying) on Tess’s new The Last Word decoration. It makes the gun about 4 metres lengthy, which is nice. Not that the unique (the one on the left) is small both.
I might put my entire fist via that set off guard.
