Season Of Dawn Is A Nice Break From The Destiny 2 Power Grind

Season Of Dawn Is A Nice Break From The Destiny 2 Power Grind

BungiDestiny 2’s latest season features Saint-14, a legendary Titan whom players have been eager to meet. The only catch is that they’ll have to spend a lot of time doing boring stuff before they get to learn more about him.

Season of Dawn, which went live on December 10, begins with the return of Osiris, Destiny 2’s Warlock of mystery, who enlists your help to protect his time-traveling...

PSA: If Destiny 2's Osiris Says He Doesn't Have New Quests, Keep Asking

PSA: If Destiny 2's Osiris Says He Doesn't Have New Quests, Keep Asking

Destiny 2's Season of Dawn began today, and with it came all sorts of changes, including the return of the mysterious exiled Warlock Osiris. He has new quests for you, but for some reason, he likes to hide them.

Osiris appears to be the main quest giver this season, and as a result, players will spend a lot of their time running back and forth to his new Sundial Spire on Mercury. Once you come...

Destiny Player Earns Every Title In The Game (And It Only Took 1,200 Hours)

Destiny Player Earns Every Title In The Game (And It Only Took 1,200 Hours)

One Destiny 2 player has collected every Guardian title that currently exists in the game. It took him over 1,000 hours to pull off, yet, he tells Kotaku, he doesn’t regret it.

Titles in Destiny 2 are special achievements that players earn by completing various tasks, some very grindy and others incredibly hard. They range from activities like visiting every special location in the game to...

Destiny 2's Next Update Finally Explores The Mystery Of Saint-14

Destiny 2's Next Update Finally Explores The Mystery Of Saint-14

He’s a robot, a titan, and he died a long time ago, but who was Saint-14 really?

The character has been a part of Destiny lore going back to the launch of the first game in 2014, but players are now more curious about him than ever, because Bungie has revealed that he’ll be a big part of the game’s Season of Dawn when it launches on December 10. His role in the Destiny universe has been...

Destiny 2's Next Season Is All About Osiris, Saint-14 And... Time?

Destiny 2's Next Season Is All About Osiris, Saint-14 And... Time?

Rough time for our biggest Destiny 2 expert to be on jury duty, folks, but here we are with some unskippable news. Bungie just posted a trailer to hype the Season of Dawn, which will run in Destiny 2 from December 10 through March 9. Whoa, that’s Saint-14! [Googles “Saint-14”...]

Here’s the setup, spinning out of the Season of Undying that’s been running since the October launch of Destiny 2’s...

Destiny's Bad Juju Is Now In Borderlands 3

Destiny's Bad Juju Is Now In Borderlands 3

Over the weekend players discovered Good Juju, Borderlands 3’s response to Destiny’s exotic pulse rifle Bad Juju.

The Legendary assault rifle was added to the game last week as part of its Maliwan Takedown update and is instantly recognizable to anyone who’s spent time with Bungie’s loot shooter. In addition to Good Juju looking an awful lot like Bad Juju, down to the alien monster head...

Many video games these days improve with age and a big batch of patches, which is why it often helps to play them late. Ignore the hype, laugh off the social pressure, and play this year’s games next year. Can you do it? I keep doing it with Destiny games, and it’s been great.

Destiny 2’s Ongoing Story Has Potential, Even If The Vex Are A Little Boring

Destiny 2’s Ongoing Story Has Potential, Even If The Vex Are A Little Boring

If you’ve logged on to Destiny 2 over the last couple of weeks, you might have noticed something different. The Tower, Destiny’s social space where players can collect quests from characters and store their gear, has a construction project underway. Two weeks ago, it was just scaffolding. As of this week, it’s starting to look like a portal. There’s a story here, and it’s pretty easy to know...

The best feeling for me when I play Destiny 2 is not a perfectly landed shot, nor is it the widely acclaimed “gun-feel,” nor the rare moments when I understand what lunar mission giver Eris Morn is droning on about. No, it’s when I’m winding down a mission and manage to...

Bungie Appears To Be Fixing Destiny 2’s Season Pass Issue That Made Add-On Disappear

Bungie Appears To Be Fixing Destiny 2’s Season Pass Issue That Made Add-On Disappear

Since last week, scores of Destiny 2 fans have been grinding their teeth over the apparent loss of their year’s worth of Season Passes, complaining about a flaw in development studio Bungie’s character transfer feature that cost them $25 to $40 worth of digital stuff. Today, Bungie says it is fixing the problem.

“We have issued a fix for players who accidentally purchased content on an...

Destiny Dance Troupe Returns With Elaborate Halloween Routine

Destiny Dance Troupe Returns With Elaborate Halloween Routine

Husky Raid is a legendary group of Destiny merry-makers known for their elaborately choreographed and meticulously staged videos that turn the shooter into a pop concert. Working entirely in-game, one player usually serves as an audience surrogate, wandering unwittingly into a bizarre carnival put on by people with a truly impressive mastery of Destiny’s animations, emotes, and weapon...

A Dramatic Reading Of The Names Of 400 Guns From Destiny 2

A Dramatic Reading Of The Names Of 400 Guns From Destiny 2

I performed a dramatic reading of the names of 400 guns from Destiny 2. Why did I do this? Well, one reason would be, “Why not?”

With the release of the Shadowkeep expansion, I started the game afresh in solidarity with my friends, who are playing the free-to-play New Light mode. So I haven’t progressed far into the game, and I haven’t accumulated much loot. However, I possess an urgent need to...

How To Access Destiny 2’s New Vex Offensive Mode

If you have Destiny 2 and can’t figure out how to start the game’s new Vex Offensive, you’re not alone. We were initially vexed, too. (Yes, I’m a dad.).

The Vex Offensive is a six-player co-op mode that’s open to anyone who has the season pass for Destiny 2’s brand new Season of the Undying. That should be everyone who has the game’s new Shadowkeep expansion, as Bungie bundled the first $10...

This week, Destiny 2—Bungie’s long-running sci-fi shoot-and-loot extravaganza—got a thorough overhaul. With its Shadowkeep expansion , longtime players were introduced to some pretty extensive changes. For everyone else, Destiny 2: New Light took the base game and made it free-to-play, welcoming a host of new players to join in on the fight.

If you’re one of those new players, Destiny 2 can be...

Why Online Game Launches Are Often A Mess

Why Online Game Launches Are Often A Mess

Just after 4 pm ET on Tuesday, Destiny 2 players began to see a warning message. A red line stretched across the bottom of their screens, and the text below it stated: “Attention: contacting Destiny 2 servers.” Minutes later, huge numbers of players got booted from the massively-multiplayer online sci-fi shooter.

At Kotaku, we lost connection at 4:11 pm. My character, who had been freshly...

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Is Full Of Mysteries That Will Kick Your Ass

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Is Full Of Mysteries That Will Kick Your Ass

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep is a lot to take in. In one fell swoop, the expansion resets player progression, institutes a new seasonal model for live events, and adds a wealth of new content. It’s going to take some time to get a grasp of the scope of things. Online, ever-changing games like this are less like cars and more like big old boats, or what I imagine boats to be like—too big to notice...

Here’s How Bungie Changed The Beginning Of Destiny 2

Here’s How Bungie Changed The Beginning Of Destiny 2

One of the more exciting things about Destiny 2’s Shadowkeep expansion is how its release will be accompanied by a free-to-play version of the base Destiny 2 experience. Dubbed Destiny 2: New Light, the new version aims to bring in new players and offer them a generous helping of the Destiny 2 experience, but even faster than before. It’s been a little unclear how that will actually work, but...

Your Destiny 2 To-Do List For This Weekend

We’re about to begin the final weekend before Destiny 2's big expansion, Shadowkeep, launches, and it’s understandable if you’re feeling a little listless.

One of the nice things about Destiny is how it’s always endeavored to offer something for every style of play, and as a result, everyone plays at their own pace. In that spirit, I’ve got three categories of tips for you: Some general things...
