With the Beta now upon us, what has really changed since the Alpha release last month? Well, not very much. And as it turns out, that’s actually a great thing…The core gameplay is broken into three different segments. Primarily, players will be exploring the world(s) of Destiny via a first person mode. The gunplay remains very polished in all aspects, including hip fire aiming, down the sights aiming, and especially in recoil. Heavier weapons feel and sound throatier, shotguns rip through enemies at close range, and sniper rifles have a good feel as extended shots are fine tuned. Since damage is indicated in an RPG-style display, it is visually confirmed that head shots do more damage. As such, foes (both AI and fellow Guardians) drop significantly faster with well timed shots.
