In its latest weekly update, Bungie stated that it is listening to player feedback regarding weapon balance and that changes are in the works.
According to senior designer Jon Weisnewsk, the balance team recently got its first set of actual data from the analytics team and is currently deciding what needs to be done to address balance.
“Since the launch of Destiny 2, we have been reading your feedback, spectating streams, and watching YouTube videos,” he said. “Very recently, we received our first real batch of player data from our analytics team. We’ve also been shoulder-to-shoulder with you in the trenches daily, playing the ever-loving crud out of this game.
“We’re not ready to go into detail about any weapon or ability tuning at this point, but there is an ongoing process in play, so we did want to drop a quick line and say… We have heard your feedback. Thank you! Destiny 2 will get updates that tune the sandbox experience.”
Weisnewsk also addressed the popularity of the MIDA Multi-Tool, stating that while it is popular, there are other weapons that match or exceed its effectiveness in all activities.
“It’s only the first month of a long adventure,” he added. “Many players are still gathering weapons for their arsenal and we have a handful of guns that haven’t even hit the game yet. We’re excited to see how things evolve. As always, thanks for playing, and keep the feedback rolling in.”
Destiny 2 is available now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with a PC release to follow in October.
