Destiny 2’s seventeenth season is a couple of month away, and Bungie is seeking to make some huge adjustments. New builds and Glaive upgrades are all a part of the plan.

The newest This Week At Bungie publish is an enormous one, however happily it’s damaged up into smaller segments. Let’s begin with airborne gameplay, which is being enhanced with a brand new stat. Airborne Effectiveness might be utilized to all weapons when related (it makes no distinction for Swords, for instance), although will probably be unseen for now. You’ll be capable to see the stat when Season 18 arrives later this 12 months, however Bungie breaks it down in a useful manner within the publish. The increased your collective Airborne Effectiveness, the extra correct you’ll be within the air. Full funding means “no airborne accuracy penalty and the same aim assist” to your Guardian.

As for flinching, Bungie acknowledges the issue. The Stability weapon stat and Resilience character stat now consists of flinch resistance. Minimum resistance for weapons is between 10% and 25%, so you’ll be able to stack that with higher gear to shrug off extra potential flinches.

Then there are Glaives, which Bungie says “don’t match player expectations” without delay. Weapon buffs for Glaives can be an excessive amount of in accordance with the developer, so it’s rising direct Glaive melee injury as a substitute. Projectile pace has been elevated, whereas vitality drain pace has been decreased.

Glaives are only one weapon sort getting tweaked for Season 17. We have an inventory of all Special Weapon and Exotic stability adjustments so that you can cross-check with your individual loadout. Season 17 begins on Tuesday, May 24.
