Destiny 2’s major spooky function is just close to the corner, and Bungie lastly teased the new mech-influenced armor players will be chasing. Some people get Ultraman vibes. Other folks see Electricity Rangers. But I’m receiving a massive dose of Gundam, and I’m super pumped about it.

Festival of the Shed goes dwell on October 18, and while Bungie has not discovered the full particulars on how this year’s version will perform, it ordinarily revolves all-around carrying masks, taking pictures haunted enemies, and collecting the room candy that falls out to trade in for festive goodies. Previous year’s theme was dinosaurs, and it was…fine! This calendar year, gamers voted for both mechs or monsters, and normally mechs received (monsters, in the meantime, misplaced for the second yr in a row).

The Gundam-ass armor will be readily available through Competition of the Missing. Hunters search neat, but the mech-theme obviously plays greatest with the bulky Titan aesthetic, so I will be dusting mine off right after a pair seasons in storage. The occasion will also add a sniper rifle with a new origin perk referred to as Look for Party that buff’s aim and motion speed when you’re solo. There’s even a new Rhulk mask so anyone can gown up as their beloved Witness Disciple.

In the meantime, Bungie also announced some significant and modest improvements coming to the rest of Destiny 2. Future week’s mid-period update will re-harmony a bunch of weapons, together with buffs to car rifles and some incredibly minor nerfs to a several other weapons like scout rifles. The Rangefinder perk is also acquiring tweaked and will see 20 p.c less reward aim-help at prolonged distances, though strong exotics Jade Rabbit and No Time To Clarify see their aim-assist decreased as effectively.

More importantly, Bungie revealed a big rework of its currency economy that will appear in Year 19. Planetary Supplies are likely absent and heroic general public functions will be the new hotspot for farming Glimmer. The plan is to minimize some of the sounds on the inventory display screen and make Destiny 2 much more approachable for newcomers. Although it’s the right transfer, I even now imagine a considerably further overhaul is desired. Glimmer is also very ineffective at this level.

Yes, it’s expected for particular gear updates and can also invest in excess bounties to farm XP more rapidly, but it mainly feels totally tangential to the rest of the encounter, contrary to Famous Shards which are now becoming depleted at alarming premiums thanks to the highly-priced seasonal Umbral Engram concentrating loop. Lightfall, and what ever other big modifications it delivers to Destiny 2, can’t appear quickly ample. For now, it is almost Gundam time.
