The Middle Of Nowhere Gaming fireteam decided to dive into the only “strike” mission available in the Destiny beta: The Devil’s Lair.
Destiny is going to be so good... The beta has rocked so far
I just wish there was more content that you could keep for the final game. I heard that later in the week we'll get the opportunity to earn some "permanent" rewards.
Yeah, the 26th I believe at 2PM. Make sure you report back for beta duty Guardian! Apparently the rewards will be handsome and permanent. Their words, not mines. LOL. I hope they will be offering a chance to acquire Legendary weapons and equipment again like they did with the Crucible event over the weekend. I freakin played all weekend and did not notice of this event until early this morning. FML. So I missed out big time. Needless to say, I am now going to be checking on their website daily for events like this.
Do you keep your char or do they wipe it?
I don't know... I'm guessing yes they wipe it. Otherwise you'll have people from the beta on level 10 (or whatever they end up capping it at by beta's end)on the first day of its release. That said, I hope they let me keep the character. It's the same one I'll "develop" when the full game is released.
There isn't an official answer on whether they would or would not. I am guessing everyone would be starting at level 1 again, but maybe certain items like Rare and Legendary equipment would be carried over. That way, those who worked hard (or got lucky) grinding in getting those items in the beta can simply work their way to the appropriate levels in the final game to equip them.
Yeah destiny is amazing. My favorite part is the coop missions. I love that. How do I get into online matches like domination? For some reason I can't find it like I did in the alpha. This game will be shooter of the year.
You have to get to level 5 (I believe) before the Crucible PvP stuff is unlocked. But I agree with you, I love the co-op stuff more than PvP.
@TheFallen the Crucible only opens up for your after you reach arleast lvl 5.
you have to be level 5 then go to the tower and see some guy and he gives you an invite, if i remember correctly.
Yep, glad I have my PS4 for this one, since it's unknown at this time whether it will come to PC for sure.
It's so easy to slide into the Hell Tank's freaking shock grenades. It kills me a little inside every time I do it.
I would have never thought they could make an IP that tops Halo...
Pve wise maybe. But in Pvp? No chance.
I hate the first boss you come across, the tank or whatever it is. I always die more times taking him down than the final boss, and it takes FOREVER to get him down. We even had all 3 guys shooting one leg and it still took forever.
One of my team mates quit, so it was up to just two of us to take him down. While it DOES take forever, the best solution is to stay in that little bunker to the right of the map, right next to the tank. You can shoot him from there without taking damage and constantly revive each other. When the little dudes spawn, they'll head straight for the middle of the map. Spam them with special moves when they do that. Then, get back on destroying that tank. It takes forever, I know, but it's a decent strategy.
I just go to the first building on the right in the back of the map. The little guys don't even bother coming up. You just have to watch for when the walker is using it's laser targeting and run out the room.
I had my teammate camp in there so that when the other two of us died he would just sit there until we respawned. I normally go to the left, and get behind him. You get a lot more critical hits if you are behind him and he never turns if you have another guy out in the middle. Also the other enemies won't go over there except for one or two. The only bad thing is eventually you do get hit if you do enough damage to gain attention and die super fast. I've done it 3 times. 1st time was with a group that didn't really focus fire, took FOREVER. second time was this (told one guy to sit in the cave so we don't die) Third time we were all shooting one leg and got him down to less than 10 percent, then he owned us all with one shot somehow(we were not next to each other yet all died)..... 15 minutes of shooting a leg wasted because we had to do it all over again lol
It's not that bad if you are careful, I've done it solo, it just takes longer and you have to make sure not to waste ammo as ammo is scarce here. Start by ignoring all the enemies and fly your sparrow straight to the room with the stairs on the far left. It's a safe spot because enemies will never enter that area. BTW there is a ghost upstairs on the console. If you want to reduce the devil walkers fire power then shoot only at the rocket launcher until it explodes. Then shoot the legs until he open ups, thats when you hit him with a grenade and open fire on his exposed innards.Rinse and repeat. If you run out of ammo then you need to carefully venture forth and kill a few enemies if needed, preferably with grenades so as to conserve ammo. Then get back to room and continue.
Yeah, that was an awesome fight and gave off a sense of real accomplishment when the big bastard finally exploded. Thanks for the tip on the ghost location there. Did not know that before and what are the ghosts for anyways?
The ghosts are just a collectible, I think getting them all unlocks stuff at bungie.net. I haven't bothered actively looking for them but I've found quite a few, but I don't know how many there are to find.
Yea it takes forever but with good guns and that power up gun thing is faster to kill it.
how can i get acode for ps3 beta destiny?
Pre-order the game. You will get three codes. When signing up on Bungie's website, make sure you select the right console that you have, since if you accidentally clicked on redeeming PS4 codes and don't have one (for example), it won't work on the PS3.
I'm still not sure if I'll get this game or not. This strike mission got pretty repetitive and boring after awhile. The spider mech took way too long to kill.
It's a beta, dude. I am glad they opened up the beta to such a large crowd but that comment right there is the main pitfall when doing so. You get people talking about a lack of content. Of course there's no content, it's a beta. The reason for it is mainly for them to work out the bugs... not for you to beat half the game before it even comes out.
Played the Alpha. I hope as you play it gets harder and harder, was way too easy.
They could start by toning down the autoaim, it's just ridiculously strong. Then they need to take the enemies off their leash, you can often just run/fly by battles because they won't follow you, even if you have been shooting at them.
@windblowsagain - The game itself will be harder than this beta, according to Bungie. I'm not sure how the difficulty scales though. @kneon - Agreed. There's an option to turn it off, but even when you do, it's still there. :/ I hate auto-aim.
what I hate about that strike ? - the people. I was able to complete it only once. We start at the shared world area - there's usually one guy that somehow gets lost and don't even enter the instance. Then we are slowly make our way through to Devilwalker in two of us. At this point other guy show his lack of skills and die all the time, then leave. why the fuck game doesnt fill that empty spots like world of warcraft for example?
I must have completed it 100 times. Several times I completed with only 2 peeps.
This happened to me a lot as well. One level (I think level 4 or 5) I was with two others at the beginning but by the time I reached the next checkpoint they were both just messing around on their sparrow and not playing the mission properly. This kind of stuff kills the game for me.
Yeah, I can see why that would kill it for you, but that is why I play with my friends or family. That way, if they aren't being a team player and goof off doing their own sh*t, I can tell them off LOL. Usually I wouldn't care, but when fighting a hard area like that, you would need all involved to complete the level faster and easier.
All I see is Destiny This an The Last Of Us That, There are other games releasing this year too ya know ^_^ ps. Destiny is great but lets not pull a Watch Dogs because I dont wanna be disappointed..
Having people actually play part of the game and have 90 percent of those people actually love it is not the same as media overhyping a game even they have seen very litttle of. I admit i felt Destiny was nothing special until i played the alpha last month, now i cant stop playing beta and the wait for the full game will be hell. As for tlou that is a confirmed masterpiece, it deserves the attention it is getting
game looks alright, like borderlands
Hope they reduce the tank's health by half. It's a bit ridiculous how much of a bullet sponge that thing is.
