Bungie responds to player complaints over weapon crafting grind | Biden News


The latest This Week at Bungie (opens in a new tab) post struggles with one of the hottest topics in the Destiny 2 community: Weapon Crafting. Specifically, the balance of it. For an inveterate Destiny addict like myself, the addition of crafting has been an absolute positive, allowing me to build a perfect arsenal, carefully curated with improved versions of the exact perks I want. For less committed (some might say more sane) players, the process of tracking creating patterns and then leveling the weapons can be time consuming and tedious.

So much so that I think the recent emphasis on getting patterns—for which you have to find multiple rare “red box” drops from the same gun—has become Destiny 2’s core seasonal loop, and not in a positive way. Frustration with that process plays into the current complaints about the seasonal model becoming too samey. Even I’m willing to admit that throwing hours into the Shuro Chi raid encounter just because it’s the most efficient way to farm junk piles for weapon level advancement isn’t the sign of a healthy system.
