To address some of the biggest complaints made by players in the "Destiny 2" console beta, developer Bungie will be applying several changes.
The September 6th release date for Destiny 2 on consoles is quickly approaching, but PC players still have their own beta to look forward to at the end of this month. The option reduces loading times comparatively, with the trade-off being that Skill is no longer factored, so there's no guarantee that your opponents are near the same level as you.
The first way that these changes will be implemented is by shortening Quickplay matchmaking times.
Before that, PC owners will get their hands on the Destiny 2 beta starting Monday, August 28, for those who pre-ordered the game or have an early access code via Blizzard's Battle.net. Bungie have stated as much in the official announcement post on Bungie.net, where the developer warned players that the PC specs for the beta might not necessarily be the same for the full game. Winning in Control will also require a few more points than it does now to lengthen the match times. This change is created to give players more time to actually play and use their abilities, and paired with the trigger for the Mercy rule being pushed out will prevent too many abruptly short matches. To compliment this, Bungie will improve upon skill calculation in Countdown.More news: U.S. stocks close lower, snapping Dow's 10-day winning streak

The time it takes to charge up Super Abilities has been reduced, as Bungie admitted that was an issue in the console beta. "We agree it was taking a bit too long to cook up a Super".
PC beta players will also find warlocks now have the same melee range as all the other classes. Our PC friends will get a chance to experience a world with consistent base melee ranges. That has been bumped up from 75 points to 100 to grant more time to play and use their abilities.

With the new weapon system in place, Power ammo felt scarce in PvE and forced players to focus on Kinetic and Energy weapons.
Aside from gameplay changes, the upcoming "Destiny 2 [VIDEO]" beta for PC will also feature fixes for some glitches that were experienced in the previous beta. Heavy ammo can also be directly farmed from all Yellow Bar Combatants.
"As a part of our security efforts, we have designed Destiny 2 for PC to resist all attempts from external applications to insert code into the game client", Bungie said.
