Destiny 2 PvP Changes Explained With Pros and Cons

Destiny PvP was fun to play but with Destiny 2 we are getting a number of changes to the mode. There are a number of Destiny 2 PvP changes that we will discuss today and not all of them are good for the experience. Some of them, in fact, may cause a problem.

The major change you will notice in the PvP is a number of players in the match. PvP matches are now toned down from 6v6 to 4v4. It doesn’t matter what the game mode is, the number of players will remain the same throughout. With the player count reduced it is going to be much easier for Bungie to balance abilities and weapons.

The revamped gun system will have an impact on everything which means PvP will also be affected, and not in a good way. You have primaries and energy weapons essentially secondaries being interchangeable.

You can equip primary kinetic hand canons and secondary energy hand canons. This greatly impacts the game as snipers, shotguns, grenade launchers etc are going to be classified as Power weapons. They will all be sharing the same ammo type which means you have to make a hard decision of picking between those weapons because they will take up the same slot.

But not all is bad here, this new weapon system can dent secondary weapon spammers and shotguns whores. There was a balancing issue with the weapons and this could fix that. Moving on, any type of every damage will deal bonus damage to enemy supers. This has been confirmed by one of the developers on Twitter. Grenades and melee attacks count as well. You do not have to match damage types.

On the other hand, abilities are much less powerful. You need to melee someone three times before you can take them down. This will eliminate ability spams for good which was a major issue in Destiny.

Last but not the least, we have guided games that can help attract more audience for PvP. Guided games are like built it LFG for Destiny. You can create a Clan in Destiny 2 and you can use these clans and find games through these clans. You can also search different clans and play with the one you like.

Destiny 2 is releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year. The PC version is delayed to 2018.
