Bungie’s Destiny 2: Beyond Light just started Season 14 - with new difficulty tiers, find out what you need to gain the advantage in the crucible.
Destiny 2 Gameplay Tips
Transmog is finally here - meaning you can change your appearance to fit how you like, kind of. You have to earn 150 Synthstrand so you can then take on bounties to earn Synthcord. Synthcord can be used at the Loom in the Tower to get Synthweave, and then finally you can use this to convert an unlocked Legendary or lower armor appearance from Collections into a Universal Armor Ornament. There is a limit to how much Synthweave you can earn per season, so choose wisely.
Many Stasis abilities can create frozen wall covers or freeze enemies which you can then detonate for bonus damage.
Beyond Light has introduced two new enemies: The Fallen Brig mech and the Vex Wyvern. Each are very aggressive, but they have new weakpoints.
Fallen Brigs won't take damage until their faceplate has been destroyed, so you'll need to do enough damage to blow the plate off. Then you can shoot the reactor for maximum damage.
The Vex Wyvernshave two weakpoints on their back and on their stomach - their bodies hunch forward, so you'll need to stagger them to deal critical damage or have a teammate flank them to hit their back.
Play in Competitive Crucible to get the weekly milestone for 5 crucible games and the bounty milestone as well as powerfuls to level up your glory and valor.
If you want a challenge, go straight into the campaign - but otherwise level yourself up to 1,200 to make it easier.
A lot of bounties and quest overlap in Beyond Light, so obtain multiple quests and bounties at a time so you can progress passively.
Be sure to enable Cross-save to continue your adventure on all platforms
Play Better with SCUF
Paddles located on the back of every SCUF controller allow you to jump, crouch and slide, switch weapons, and reload all while keeping your thumb on the thumbstick prepared to aim.
Improve your aim in Destiny 2 with the right thumbsticks for your playstyle.
Concave Thumbsticks are designed for more control over movement.
Domed Thumbsticks are designed for more accuracy.
Short Thumbsticks are designed for quicker movement speed.
Tall Thumbsticks are designed to have more angle to play with and more precise aiming.
For defensive players like snipers, we recommend playing with a short concave thumbsticks on the left for quick movement, and a tall domed on the right for precise aiming.
For offensive players like shotgun players, we recommend playing with two short concave thumbsticks to quickly move and react quickly when aiming.
Maximize your speed when aiming and shooting to gain the advantage with SCUF’s trigger systems. We have two options depending on if you’re a dedicated FPS player, or if you like to play a variety of games.
1. Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers
These features completely eliminate the range of movement of the bumpers and triggers and provides a feel similar to a mouse click. The Digital TAP Bumpers and Digital Triggers are only recommended for players who only play shooter games and currently available for SCUF IMPACT & Infinity4PS PRO.
2. Trigger Control System
SCUF’s Trigger Control system is available on every SCUF controller model and offers full trigger customization through Trigger Stops and Adjustable Hair Triggers.
For Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, you should set your Trigger Stops on unless you plan on using vehicles (which require the full trigger motion to operate).They will reduce the amount your trigger has to travel past the activation point and will allow for faster shooting and aiming. Especially efficient with semi-automatic weapons.
To further tune your trigger movement, the Hair Triggers will allow you to modify the distance to the activation point so firing and aiming becomes a one-tap process.You should only adjust your hair triggers in game; start by turning the key until you hit the activation point which is where your weapon will start shooting on its own, then dial it back 1 turn, or to your preference.
