Bungie flip-flops, nerfs Pulse Rifles in Destiny right after buffing them

On the next episode of "as the nerf turns," it looks like Bungie is making pulse rifles and shotguns less effective in its big December update for Destiny. This follows an update in the 2.0 edition that actually made pulse rifles not terrib...

Destiny players experiencing 'Vulture' issues on Xbox One

Some Xbox One Destiny players have been encountering "Vulture" errors since the 2.02 update recently rolled out. You should only receive that error if you try to play co-op or PvP without a Xbox Live Gold (or PlayStation Plus, as the code i...

Failing to go to orbit in Destiny after an activity will nullify postmaster rewards

So this is a weird one. Over at the Destiny subreddit, they've uncovered something surprising, straight from Bungie. According to the official help section of the game's site, failing to go to orbit after an activity (read: a raid or S...

Bungie finally addresses Destiny's weapon parts problem

Destiny's economy is in constant flux, and Bungie never seems to know what to do about it. This patch everyone seemed to be fine with the changes in The Taken King, but after a few weeks, some issues started creeping up. For one, players no...

Destiny inspired Fallout 4's gunplay

Bethesda looked to Bungie's sci-fi shooter Destiny when it was designing Fallout 4's gunplay. In an interview with Game Informer (via GameSpot), the development team looked to Destiny not just because of its gameplay reputation, but also be...

If you're having trouble with Destiny's first King's Fall jumping puzzle, consult these GIFs

To this day I run into people who have issues with the King's Fall jumping puzzle in Destiny's newest raid. It's never a problem having to wait (or if they go to orbit), as you only need a certain amount of players to finish it, but people ...

Halo boss: Cortana 'not really nude,' appears without clothes to 'attract and demand attention'

343 Industries makes Halo now and so 343 Industries needs a way to explain Halo's Cortana with respect to its own design, intent, and ambitions. Accordingly, Halo franchise director Frank O’Connor offered GamesRadar a new canon for wh...

This guy solos Crota's End...on a Rock Band drum-kit

While Crota's End never quite duplicated the challenge of Destiny's very first raid, The Vault of Glass, those of us familiar enough with the second raid know all too well that it's the end that's the tricky bit. But then this guy comes alo...

It turns out that Destiny's raid challenges are time-gated

While Destiny is still missing a lot of features, and the loot system is never quite right, Bungie has a ton of variables to account for since it's so massive. Most notably, a millions-strong community that will datamine the living shi...

Destiny's Hard Mode raid is pretty much the same, and that's mostly okay

When designing the King's Fall raid in Destiny, the developers noted that they created Hard Mode first, then went to Normal. It makes sense, then, that the two would basically be the same. I just have mixed feelings about the loot system.

It turns out that Destiny's terrible Iron Banner loot was due to a 'bug'

Last week, Destiny players everywhere were frustrated that the Iron Banner PVP event, a game mode they put hours of work into, yielded really poor loot despite Bungie's claims that it would be worth playing. Well, according to the developer...

Destiny's Trials of Osiris event delayed yet again

'The story was written without writers': The one-year gutting and reassembly of Destiny

Destiny fans share their utter disappointment for Year Two's Iron Banner debut

Destiny raid tips
As previously mentioned, I think the King's Fall raid in Destiny is the best offering yet. It's clean, doesn't have very many bugs, and has a lot of variety within its walls. At this point I'm sitting on 15 clears, some for gear, some for fun, and others for quests and fragments (a collectible questline). Whatever your reason is, here are some tips to help you through.   read

Did you know that melee attacks in Destiny are location sensitive?

Destiny might have a litany of issues, but it has tons of secrets buried beneath its veneer. Bungie seems to have taken more time crafting hidden little tidbits than balancing or creating content, but some of it is cool nonetheless. T...
