Everything You Need To Know About Destiny 2’s New Armor System

Everything You Need To Know About Destiny 2’s New Armor System

On a livestream Wednesday afternoon, Bungie showed off its forthcoming overhaul of Destiny 2’s armor system that will come when the Shadowkeep expansion arrives October 1. It’s a pretty thorough rework of how armor works in the game—and while it’s sorely needed, it might make Destiny even more of a grind depending on how it’s implemented in the final release. Here’s a summary of what we found...

‘Dad Builds’ Are Making Lazy Gaming OK, And I Love That

‘Dad Builds’ Are Making Lazy Gaming OK, And I Love That

It has come to my attention that some of you have introduced a new term into the video game lexicon, one that describes a phenomenon of great interest to me and the public at large. I am talking, of course, of Dad Builds.

What is a Dad Build? Why, it is any character that uses the Dad Loadout when selecting what weapons and armor to equip in Destiny 2, a video game where players soar through...

Destiny 2 Players Can't Decide What This Weird Cat Statue Means

Destiny 2 Players Can't Decide What This Weird Cat Statue Means

Last week, Destiny 2’s Solstice of Heroes event began, bringing with it a new activity set in a new area: the European Aerial Zone . Ever since, players have been scouring it for potential hidden lore or secret areas that could be tucked away somewhere in its many floating rocks and abandoned buildings. So far, all that players have found is a cat statue.

This week, one of the most popular...

Destiny 2’s raid boss fights are supposed to be brutal, drawn-out affairs. They take a while to complete even for stronger players. Over the weekend, though, Destiny players discovered a character build that can be used to kill any raid boss with just a few punches.

The build is by Gladd, who we’ve...

Destiny 2's Solstice Event Is Back And Better Than Last Year's Grind

Destiny 2's Solstice Event Is Back And Better Than Last Year's Grind

The Solstice of Heroes has just begun in Destiny 2. It’s the return of last year’s in-game event where you think back on how swell your time playing Destiny 2 has been as you play more Destiny 2. Much like the first Solstice of Heroes, which was held around this time last year, this one serves as a last hurrah before a big expansion—Shadowkeep in this case—a chance to earn some sweet...

Destiny Players Are Getting Fed Up With A Ridiculous Grenade Launcher Quest

For months, hardcore Destiny 2 players have been trying to scale their way up to a seemingly impossible mountaintop. The Mountaintop, in fact… because that’s the name of a Legendary grenade launcher in Destiny 2 that many players have coveted for a long time. It is, as its name implies, incredibly labor-intensive to get, with no real work-arounds other than to just buckle down and do the...

I Play Destiny As A Warlock But Now Think I Should Be A Titan

I Play Destiny As A Warlock But Now Think I Should Be A Titan
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

As far back as I can remember, I, like Ray Liotta, have always wanted to be a Warlock. My daddy was a Warlock. His daddy was a Warlock. Warlockin’ is in my blood, I thought as I started up Destiny for the first time in 2014. When Destiny 2 was released three years later, I stuck to what I knew. I stayed a...

Sometimes It's Nice To Stop Mid-Game And Watch The Players Around You
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

Yesterday I logged on to Destiny 2 for the first time in a very long while, intent on clearing out a chunk of the massive to-do list my character had accrued since this summer’s Season of Opulence update began. One of my many bounties and challenges involved killing a bunch of Fallen enemies on the game’s...

Destiny 2’s Latest Exploit Lets You Farm Materials By Doing Nothing

Destiny 2’s Latest Exploit Lets You Farm Materials By Doing Nothing

For the entire five-year span of Destiny’s existence as a series, players have been looking for ways to exploit it. Any old Destiny head will speak fondly of the days we had Loot Caves and cheesed bosses without shame. In the pantheon of cheap Destiny exploits, the latest Destiny 2 scheme for scoring loads of materials might take the cake for the amount of effort it requires, which is about...

The Perfect Squad Size Is 3 People

The Perfect Squad Size Is 3 People

If you were paying attention to this week’s E3 announcements and also care about co-operative games, you might have noticed something: There are a lot of three-player co-op games.Rainbow Six Quarantine , the new Escape mode for Gears 5 , even Battletoads . To this I say: It’s about damn time. Three people is the perfect squad size, and I am tired of games that want me to find a fourth.

Destiny 2's Next Year Will Depend On How Players Like This One

Destiny 2's Next Year Will Depend On How Players Like This One

It’s safe to say Destiny 3 won’t be coming next year, but what about a new expansion? Or new seasons? On this bonus E3 episode of Kotaku Splitscreen, we ask the people behind Destiny about that and a whole lot more. (Apologies for the background noise—I had to use backup audio!)

I sat down with Destiny creative chiefs Luke Smith and Mark Noseworthy for about an hour to probe them about...

Today, Bungie announced that Destiny 2 will be getting cross-save across all platforms, allowing players to transfer progression between Google Stadia, Xbox, PC, and PS4. But for the past few weeks, sources say, Bungie didn’t think that last one would happen. In fact, it came together at the last possible minute: One day before the announcement.

Destiny's New Menagerie Is One Of The Game's Coolest Activities Yet

A new season launched in Destiny 2 today, and with it came a brand new activity that ranks up with some of the best things the series has done: Menagerie, a gauntlet of light puzzles and tough encounters.

Like everything else in Destiny, Menagerie is all about shooting aliens, but it’s not your average horde mode. It feels more like a miniature raid, with a variety of interesting (and...
