The savagery of Destiny’s grind has various considerably – Destiny 2 gamers are showered in loot in comparison with anybody who aimed to amass and improve a full set of 12 months 1 raid gear – however what developer Bungie calls ‘the chase’ has been a relentless of the sequence. So a lot so, certainly, that participant methods for environment friendly play have been immortalised within the game’s official lore.
With Destiny 2’s first main enlargement – Forsaken – nearly upon us, a slew of recent objects with connected lore have arrived within the game’s databases. One such entry issues a Guardian named Savin, who is claimed to be “greedy… for he desired materials and experiences that would temper him into a better Guardian, and he was always experimenting with his strange powers in foolish ways that left him briefly dead, seeking ‘a new Super ability’ or ‘some way to make my grenades faster.’”
To this finish, Savin is “obsessed with reward and efficiency,” and “would rather do one profitable thing a thousand times than waste his efforts on a less beneficial novelty.”
Perhaps describing the methods to waste time whereas ready for a raid group, Savin’s textual content says he “leapt into space, repeatedly and without reason, as if his death were no more traumatic than a hop off a curb.”
Destiny’s been a bit meta nearly from the start – there are hints that the Ahamkara, a frighteningly intelligent alien race, are conscious that they’re in a videogame – however this is a brand new case of Bungie acknowledging participant behaviour.
More examples are gathered on the Destiny subreddit. They embody a tacit admission of how boring the Infinite Forest is, with its Cabal inhabitants reporting “Guardians sprinting past combat units without engaging.” A grimoire card from Destiny 1 studies Guardians “dancing, and performing acrobatics with light vehicles.”
