Destiny 2 is about as high-profile as it gets. Activision's space-shooter sequel comes on the back of one of the most expensive video games ever produced. So when Reddit users band together to spot the flaws in its gameplay reveal from last week, they're doing it help - not out of spite.
Since the reveal stream at an aircraft hanger last week, Reddit users have filled the game's exclusive subreddit in the hopes of bringing some of these issues to light.
Hoping to get said issues noticed, picked up and fixed in time for the game's final release this September, users have crawled through the available footage frame-by-frame and noticed a handful of graphical glitches and typos that have now been reported for Activision to clean up. The post itself originated around 15 hours when user CptCannabinol used a video captured by 'Datto' showing the Hunter class' knife seemingly being disjointed from the character model's grip.
Instructing interested users to slow the speed of the video down to .25 to get a clearer shot through the timestamp, the post quickly evolved into a greater bug report thread with other contributors making note of typos and repeated words in tooltips and text lines. For greater clarification, user TravelerHD took a few screenshots of the errors seen above. Errors in the Dawnblade perk have been pointed out alongside similar issues with the Arcstrider perk. Spicers being referred to as 'Splices' have caught the attention of keen-eyed players too.
Of course, these aren't attacks of ridicule aimed at the Destiny staff, but ways of collecting little issues into a centralised location for Bungie to refer back to when the time comes for that kind of polish. These are issues that would be brought to light during beta tests, but that might leave a sour taste in mouths of the greater population. Better late than never!
