Destiny 2: Shadowkeep Game Guide

Bungie’s new expansion to Destiny 2, Shadowkeep, released on September 1st, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, Stadia and PC. Shadowkeep returns players to the Moon, packed with new content and changes coming over the course of the season.  

With new difficulty tiers, find out what you need to gain the advantage in the crucible and gambit. 

How To Improve Your Gameplay Using a SCUF

Thumbsticks

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. 

Trigger Systems

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. 

Paddles

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.
