Bungie disables Hunter and Titan exotics in Destiny 2 due to “unintentional” competitive advantages
Bungie temporarily disabled both Radiant dancing machines Hunter and the Titans leg armor God worm Caress in Destiny 2 after its discovery, both granted unintended bonuses to players in Crucible and Gambit modes.
The Radiant Dance Machines (a new Exotic Hunter) have been disabled in Crucible and Gambit modes, as they allow Hunters to dodge “an unforeseen number of times” in competitive modes. To put it simply, it gave Hunters the ability to just dive into the arena, dodging shots from other Guardians and gaining an unfair advantage and also allowed them to charge up their Supers very quickly.
“Due to an issue that allows Hunters to dodge an unforeseen number of times in a row, we have temporarily disabled the Radiant Dance Machines Exotic Hunter leg armor in Gambit and all PvP activity,” Bungie said. in a tweet.
Elsewhere, we’ve seen the Titans’ Wormgod Caress Exotic Gauntlets fully deactivated, including in single player / co-op content. They were completely disabled “due to an issue where the Titans could unintentionally do heavy damage with their throwing hammers.”
This week, we learned more about Destiny 2’s upcoming expansion, Witch Queen.
The Witch Queen comes with an area called the Throne World of Savathun which is home to the new Lucent Hive Guardians who will wield light against you, and they have their own Hive Ghosts. So they will be something to face.
You can expect new weapons to be used against them, like the Glaive which is a melee weapon. In order to acquire this along with some of the other new weapons, you will be using a new crafting system. You’ll be able to forge all The Witch Queen and Seasonal weapons, and the system will be more versatile than the Umbral system – it will even allow you to research specific perks.
Launch of the witch queen February 22, 2022 – and Season of the Lost is now live in the game.
