But there will be something to keep players grinding.
Among the many changes in Destiny 2 that are annoying fans is the lack of random weapon rolls. In the original game, each weapon could drop with a random assortment of perks, thus seeing players grinding for that perfect roll on their favourite weapon.
Director Luke Smith clarified to Mashable that, “There aren’t random rolls on weapons anymore. Better Devils is a Crucible hand cannon [in Destiny 2], and what it has on it is what it has on it. Period.”
However, for those who want to keep playing in the hopes of getting that ideal roll, Smith says the developer has “some ideas”. “How can my second, third, and tenth Better Devils hand cannon be interesting? That’s a question we should be asking and answering as quickly as we can. We have ideas.
“While I would like nothing more than to share those ideas with you, we’re up against [a deadline]. I don’t know if they’ll make it for our Sept. 6 [release] date. But we have some ideas that we’re pretty excited about.”
Destiny 2 is out in September for PS4 and Xbox One but the open beta begins in July for consoles. The PC beta arrives in August while the full game is out in October.
