Destiny 2's next big patch will massively overhaul controller options
June 10, 20201 min read
Destiny 2 has a long future ahead of it.
Yesterday Bungie introduced plans for right now, plans for this coming fall and plans throughout 2021 and 2022. It seems as if the company is committed to working on Destiny 2 full-time, without the fear of a Destiny 3 reset button looming over it. That's good news on paper, so long as Bungie can get Destiny 2 back on track and undo a lot of their more recent design decisions.
Patch 2.9.0, the most recent update, seems like a good start. 2300 Bright Dust (premium crafting reagent) has been added to the season pass, raid reward drops have been buffed and additional rewards now drop for Trials wins (read: the last two things are meant to enhance the quality of life of endgame content).
The real big news though? Bungie is overhauling controller remapping. Controller presets have always been a thing, but now you can create a completely custom controller layout. That includes in-and-out-of vehicle customizations, as well as three "types" of inputs: press, long press and double press, on top of "chords" (multi-button presses).
Destiny 2 isn't the most complicated game as abilities are streamlined for each class, but more accessibility and customization is a great thing. Every game should allow players to swap control settings around. You can check out the full patch notes below!
