Multiplayer games are often characterized by increased complexity, which is why they cannot be mastered “on the fly”. The basic gameplay seems straightforward, but it’s very easy for a beginner to get lost in the variety of mechanics, game systems, and constant updates and stop understanding how to play it all and how to get to the most interesting part.
In this regard, Destiny 2 is not too different from other MMOs: it will also take a lot of time to get your bearings, and it will almost certainly require outside help. This article should provide it.
The text, not being a comprehensive guide to Destiny 2, will tell you where to start, how not to get confused in all the ups and downs of the MMO and gradually immerse yourself in this great game.
Try everything with your own hands
Better than any guide or text, at first it will help to try to get comfortable yourself. For now, put the article aside and just go to Destiny 2. The tutorial is silent on some details, does not save the beginner from confusion with a mountain of modes and mechanics, but he gets at least a basic idea of \u200b\u200bwhat he is dealing with. He will be shown the main activities, will be helped to understand all sorts of menus and will be given plenty of shooting at the crowds of aliens.
But even after the training phase, you can continue to try to learn everything on your own experience. Try different classes and weapons, look into the secluded corners of the world, complete starting tasks, read hints – just do what you want. And only when you get the feeling that you are lost and wasting time, it is worth looking for guides and people who are ready to lecture on each revolver.
Be on topic
Mastering any MMO is easier if you become part of its community. It is not necessary to comment on all posts on Reddit – it is enough to track the flow of information about the game not only in itself, but also on various sites and YouTube channels. Moreover, it is desirable that they plunge into the nuances that trailers and patch notes will not directly say.
Sometimes only in large communities or video guides it will be possible to find out what the reworking of individual perks and equipment characteristics has led to, what is now part of the meta, what to look for in the new season or event, how to find strong weapons or complete certain missions faster. In addition, this is almost the only way to find out about the “hidden layers” of mechanics, such as how individual modifiers work or the chance of dropping rewards. Developers are usually silent about such things or speak without diving into details.
Plus, Destiny 2 is constantly changing. It can partially or completely rework even the main gameplay systems – this has happened more than once during the life of the game. The principles of dropping perks on weapons and armor were changing, and this year the subclasses were almost completely changed, making changes both to the balance and to the approach to building builds.
Even a hardened Guardian will take time to adapt to this. Therefore, there is nothing shameful in trying to make life easier for yourself with advice from external sources. In addition, the sooner you understand the basics, the sooner you can start “flirting” with mechanics and consciously create your own combinations of skills, armor and weapons.
