Destiny 2 beta is a “months old” build

It looks like the Destiny beta, which has received a bit of criticism, is from a months old build.  Which means players shouldn't be so worried about the full release in a couple of months.

“The PVE game tuning has changed pretty significantly since the Beta build was deployed. The nature of a Beta of this scale requires that it’s based off a build of the game that is now months old,” beta design lead Rob Engeln wrote in the latest Bungie Weekly Update.

“So, in many cases, your feedback is helping us validate changes that were previously made based on internal feedback and playtesting.”

Engeln provided a specific example. We already knew Bungie would be more generous with ammo in the release build of Destiny 2, but the designer outlined precisely how:

“In addition to retuning the drop rates, we built a system that guarantees power ammo drops for you and your Fireteam from certain enemies, giving power weapons a more reliable and predictable role in your arsenal,” he wrote.
