Destiny Beta Infographic Reveals Tons of Amazing Stats

by Kyle Hanson


Bungie has released an infographic covering all nine days of the Destiny Beta. With 4.6 million players joining in, making it the largest console beta ever, there are a ton of huge stats and figures that Bungie is using to complete the game. That is just the tip of the iceberg though, so let’s dive into some stats, or click below to see the full infographic.

It looks like a lot of people made multiple Guardians on their accounts, since 6.5 million were created by the 4.6 million players. As Bungie points out, this is over ten times the number of people who live in their hometown of Seattle, Washington. Over 88 million games of Destiny were played during the beta, so about an average of 19 games per player. 20% of user’s time was spent in The Tower, most likely to enjoy the multiple dance parties that spontaneously sprung up.


The peak number of players on at one time was during the high stress test on Saturday, at which point there were 853, 235 players online simultaneously. Of course, all of those users will get Bungie’s “special gift” which has yet to be fully revealed.

Late into the Destiny Beta Bungie opened up the Moon for exploration. 851,264 players were able to visit the Moon, resulting in over 3.7 billion kills and 164 million deaths. The Destiny Beta community had a collective kill-to-death ration of 22.53 while on the Moon, so not too shabby.

The Crucible, which is Destiny’s player-versus-player area, also had some huge numbers dropped. There were over 350 million kills throughout the 30 million activities played. Over half of all kills came from players primary weapon, with the others resulting from special weapons, heavy weapons, and vehicle splatters.

Finally Bungie revealed that 777,000 users downloaded the Destiny companion app. The app lets you look over and equip your gear and weapons while away from the game. There are still some stats that I haven’t gone over though, so check out the full infographic on the right.

Destiny will be released on September 9th 2014 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
