Bungie has pushed a new update to Destiny 2. In the “Go Fast” Update 1.1.4 the developers have tweaked a number of different settings in the game to make players faster and more powerful. In it you’ll find a number of changes to both the PvP and PvE aspects of the game.
They’re calling it the “Go Fast” update because they’ve made some pretty large changes across the Titan, Hunter, and Warlock classes in terms of how each class plays with changes to things like movement speed, special abilities, and many other aspects of the characters.
Not just about speed, the update also shakes up the power of many of the guns in the game. The changes made here have been made with complete transparency as Bungie has posted patch notes that show the before and after effects of the changes they’ve made.
Alongside these weapon and character changes, some subtle tweaks have been made to the game that have only happened because of feedback by the community. Unique rewards for Nightfall Strikes are going to give players a solid reason to head in each week to earn potential legendary weapons and exotic accessories with increased drop rates. Strikes will see less repetition. They’ve even tweaked the interaction time for activating patrol beacons, a small quality of life improvement.
For the first time in a while, it appears that a lot of Destiny 2 players are excited to go in and check out the changes that have been made. If anything, the Go Fast update 1.1.4 for Destiny 2 shows that Bungie has been listening to fans. Has Bungie finally turned the corner on Destiny 2? Update 1.1.4 has made the game more enjoyable to play, but will that euphoria wear off quickly… it’s hard to tell but making the game more enjoyable to play while still adding new content on 2018 roadmap definitely makes the future look brighter for Destiny 2 than it did at the beginning of the year.
There’s still a lot more for Destiny 2 players to look forward to as Bungie continues to tweak and add systems to the game. If this is the turning point for Destiny 2, it happened a lot quicker than it did for the original game.
