Destiny 2 Season 15 Nerfs Anarchy While Bringing Back A Fan-Favorite Perk

TheGamer 22 August, 2021 - 03:00am

There’s no way to put this gently, so we’re just going to come right out and say it: Anarchy will die next week. A 30% damage nerf to bosses is bad enough, but a reduction in total ammo from 26 to 16 also removes Anarchy’s versatility against regular mobs and Champion enemies. You’ve got until Tuesday before the new season goes live, so be sure to use Anarchy before then for old time’s sake.

Vex Mythoclast, the much-maligned Exotic reward from the Vault of Glass raid, is getting buffed to the moon. More range, better stability, shorter charge time on its alternate fire, and a 40% PvE damage buff are just a few of what Mythoclast is set to receive in Season 15, as well as no longer losing overcharge stacks if you swap weapons.

Season 15 will also bring back six old Legendary weapons and the Trials of the Nine weapons will be added to the Prophecy Dungeon with all new perks. Expect Exotic Primaries, Linear Fusion Rifles, and Caster Frame Swords to all get tweaked before Witch Queen arrives in early 2022.

Destiny 2 gets BattlEye anti-cheat

GameRant 21 August, 2021 - 11:46am

Destiny 2 has been plagued with cheaters in the game’s PvP modes and according to Bungie’s blog post last year, cheating had increased by 50 percent. And the inclusion of Iron Banner and Trials of Osiris, two of the game’s most competitive multiplayer modes, has certainly encouraged people to take the ‘easy way’.

Furthermore, the developers stated that “[their] overall goal with Destiny security is to provide a competitive, fair ecosystem where cheaters are rarely seen and are rapidly ejected from the game. We’re not there right now, and we’re increasing the priority. We’ll keep you posted.” 

Since then, in an effort to curb down hacking, the studio has filed multiple lawsuits against cheat sellers and distributors alike. While various other developers such as Ubisoft and Riot have taken a similar stance and filed complaints against the distribution of hacks and cheats causing disruptive behavior.

But it seems that players won’t have to stay frustrated for long as Bungie has partnered with BattlEye to bring the anti-cheat system starting next season in update 3.2.0.

This anti-cheat system is present in various multiplayer titles such as Rainbow Six: Siege, Fortnite, PUBG and Escape from Tarkov. While it certainly isn’t perfect, as one can encounter cheaters and hackers once in a while, it’ll possibly slow down the influx of hackers and hopefully provide a much better PvP experience.
