Biggest Concerns for the Meta Next Season in Destiny 2Feb 27, 2020
yeah, what's going on? Guardians and welcome back to another Destiny 2 gameplay video. Hey, in this video I wanted to talk a little bit about the upcoming
seasonof Destiny 2 and how I think the changes to the sandbox will play out. I was really excited about a lot of the changes we read about in 12 last week and you seem to know the high impact fusions lord of wolves are getting nerfed now they'll all be big tweaks we're also seeing auto rifles get a benefit that we talked about in my last video which is great really excited to try some of those but I also have some
concernsand that's what I wanted to talk about in this video but only because we're focusing on the
concernsin this video doesn't mean that.
I just feel bad about the changes, so keep in mind there's a lot of good stuff on that swab, but this video specifically will lean into a conversation about the things I foresee as potential issues, so let's get straight to the point. . the art of the matter we're in a pretty good sandbox right now i think you can disagree with me i think we're in a pretty good sandbox right now there are some outliers that can be problematic for sure and we've talked about that those a lot on the channel we don't need to repeat them but overall I really like where we are in the game right now we have a lot of options even at the higher end of the skill gap and in survivability when there are a lot of viable ration options Spare and Mindbender take the cake right now on console at least as the top combo at the top end of the skill gap and there are a few things that can compete with it pretty well but those are the best options for a combo on that level.
Now with the changes we're seeing for
season, I'm a little concerned that we're taking away a bit of variety and solidifying to spare Bender as the best dogs even more when it comes to spare rations in my inventory. awful or something i'm not saying that but it's d definitely had a lot of time in the spotlight one of the most common alternatives to that combination was last word and darlings it's been considered a great option to combat rations of Spare and Mindbender focus sadly, though both of those things are getting nerfed last word on console in my opinion at least it wasn't really a problem and not high on my list of things that should be adjusted. terrible, this is in the console.
I would be very upset if this was the last word I got on my platform. I remember that things like that were said almost verbatim. on PC, the last word is a bit crazy. I've used it on PC it's easy enough to just shoot people but that's not really the case on console while the ttk is the same the recoil is more severe and can't be toned down by just w Identify the fov to make the kick visually less dramatic on console so being consistent in competition with the last word on console is much more difficult so I'm annoyed by that nerf and you can say well that sucks but you know i can get by focusing on hipfire and using my love well love is getting there too no longer does enough precision damage to take out most supers in one shot we asked asked asked for this change a while back and a lot of the group finally caved in and said okay you know go make some cool flashy plays again as indie one and pull some nasty Snipes on those supers for sure and then people rejoiced yeah there was a lot of rejoicing , but now they are like lawl JK you didn't say not to retire and they are reversing that change so you are your
biggestalternative to spare rations.
Mind Bender has now been reduced significantly and that will only cement Spare Bender's position as the main dogs now talking about ta. king more off board options we also have 140 rapid fire sniper rifles these snipers are not used much on console because they have one main drawback they don't pump out enough damage they don't pump out enough raw damage so with these snipers you can't shoot super and stuff it's a big deal players who shoot there aren't 140 snipers in the top 20 weapons now being used in PvP on console, they just aren't
meta-wise. they're not there, they don't have a presence in the top halls of arms, not just in the top 10, top 20, so now these snipers have been nerfed as well, they won't do enough damage to double body shot players anymore, this is in my opinion a bad decision.
I know you can resist that but let me explain that there were snipers like this on target one like the 20/20 or the push and guess what despite having massive scopes with the lowest zoom value of aim assist on the game and great. stability were never actually used people didn't want the m because having to use three special ammo to secure a kill if you lack precision hits is not good now i understand players are concerned about 140 sniper double body plays that can be annoying I understand dying can be unpleasant too but on console especially no one is out there saying man I'm just going to try and shoot this man twice in the body right they're all trying to hit each other in the head trying to get them to rather use an ammo and get shot in the head thats that much more preferable people are trying to hit their headshots and if they miss the head and hit the body instead then yeah they will try to clean up their kill and go to for a second shot to the body and on console the snipers will kick you can't just press the trigger twice after aiming at someone's chest, your second shot will miss wildly, you have to drop the range back to your target, but if they're going to require three body shots now, no one is going to want to use them. it will be even less popular than it already is people will go through the checklist and say ok omniscient eye suite it has a good vibe i cant wait to use this thing can i kill snipers with a headshot head or can I kill Superdome?
Sorry, can I kill supers? with a headshot, well not cool, can he kill a standard Guardian and two body shots? No I guess I'm not using this thing right so now both the beloved snipers and rapid fire have been nerfed and revoke is the only tier 1 option you really know is there are other high impact sniper rifles that you know you can use sure you might want to use silicon scent you might want to use - tarz stare you might want to use by Fox but in terms of simply, the built-in perk revocation had everything going for it and outperformed the others by quite a bit ok, it really does, so we just take a bunch of things off the table, in my opinion, you'll see even more. spare bun spare bender and maybe revoke are not forgotten on console i think that's what we're looking for
nextseason you know you could say well tv people just need to get their box breathing love and it will be ok stop whining i have to admit i'm not a fan of that argument the box breath isn't that great it's helpful sometimes yeah you can get that extra damage and shot to the super yeah but in my hallways when a Titan pops the hammers and sees my sniper scope light up, he doesn't say okay, I'm going to hold this hammer, I'm going to give this man time to let the box breathe before I throw this thing at him, TRUE?
My blade enemies Don supers aren't holding their swords until the breather box arises they just go on the offensive and I don't do that often I would say most of the time I don't have time to sit there and do some hard quiz and wait for the box breath to come up and most of these supers aren't just walking at head level anyway in my scopes they're slipping flying whatever they fi The second box breath is very situational. I don't consider it as a personal benefit so 140 on 110 hand cannons didn't get any adjustment either which means there's literally no single reason to run anything but a 150 you know a 1/4 let me put it in simple terms you have I'm going to put two pistols in front of you and I'll be, like, here you have two ears, two pistols, two pistols.
It's the difference? Well this one can fire those three shots faster and this one fires those three shots slower and obviously it's a no-brainer at that point you say ok they basically had the same damage they kill in the same number of shots they still require all the headshots I'm going to go with the one that shoots the fastest it's literally a no brainer there's no single reason to go for the 140 so again this just solidifies spare rations it's the best so at the end of the day , my main concern is that we take a lot of things off the table and leave less competition for the
metaat the top, you know, I'm excited to play with cars, who knows, maybe us.
I'll see some of them end up being meta. I don't know, but I doubt anything will threaten the current kings, unless there is more information that we don't know at this stage, we'll just have to wait and find. out but like I said I don't hate spare rations in Mindbender I really don't think they're things we could play with it's really not a big deal but my only concern is we're just taking more options off the board you know that we're really taking more options off the board and I didn't see enough buffs to make me think well great at least we'll have these things to play with you know instead of these things that are making me nervous I didn't see anything to get excited about the buffs and the new options aside from maybe some automatic rifles, I don't know what. you think let me know what you think you know thanks for watching the video I appreciate you all for watching and hanging out feel free to let me know in the comment section how you feel what you think and also feel free to go through the stream to sometimes you get mad com we would love to see you well be warm and well fed my friends and i hope i catch you in the crucible goodbye and you
