Bungie finally addresses Destiny 2’s PvE and PvP balancing

Destiny 2

One of the biggest complaints we hear from Guardians is Bungie’s decision to not separately balance Destiny 2‘s PvE and PvP.

Basically, when Bungie makes a change to a weapon or armor or ability for PvP purposes, it can have an affect on the PvE portion of gameplay — and vice versa, of course.

While many players would like to see the two modes split and balanced individually of one another, Bungie has finally addressed the issue. Responding to a fan in IGN’s ‘Ask Bungie Antyhing‘, Game Director Luke Smith attempted to clarify the process.

“PVP and PVE are balanced separately in many ways (things like: outgoing damage across weapon archetypes, ability and melee damage are all different). So I think what you’re actually asking is “Will the combat rhythm for Destiny 2 diverge across PVE and PVP?” The answer to that is “No.” In Destiny you build a character with a bunch of powers, abilities, and we hope, a combat rhythm that is consistent across the game.”

It’s pretty clear Bungie has no intention of ever splitting the two when it comes to balancing.
