Though it simply rolled out a significant replace to Future 2's gameplay with its current 1.1.4 update, Bungie is much from accomplished making main modifications to its on-line shooter. Living proof: Gamers can count on a shakeup to the way in which their weapon slots work by the top of this summer season.
As a part of a current Q&A with its community, Future 2 sandbox design lead Josh Hamrick made time to reply to a fan's query about the way in which Future 2 dealt with its weapon slots. "I actually want D2 weapons system returns to main/particular/heavy," the fan mentioned. "It was higher than the present one. Is my want cheap?
"You possibly can count on weapon slot modifications in the way forward for Future 2," Hamrick responded. "We’re actively engaged on a brand new system proper now and we may have extra to point out and inform this summer season [sic]."
In Future, weapons have been sorted into main ("normal" weapons like assault rifles, pistols, and hand cannons), particular weapons (extra highly effective weapons like shotguns and sniper rifles), and heavy (machine weapons and rocket launchers). In Future 2, this modified to kinetic (weapons with out elemental harm), vitality (weapons with elemental harm), and energy (shotguns, sniper rifles, rocket launchers, and many others.).
This primarily bundled to weapon sorts beforehand break up throughout two slots into one, whereas letting gamers wield two "normal" weapons into battle. This let gamers be extra reactive and make split-second choices about what gun to make use of at what vary, however many gamers have felt the brand new system prevents some weapons from getting consideration (sniper rifles, for instance, are nowhere close to as fashionable as rocket launchers).
There are a variety of different fascinating particulars in Bungie's responses, so if you wish to dive into extra particulars in regards to the firm's plans for Future 2's characteristic, make sure that to learn it in full.
As somebody who spent dozens of hours in Future 2 final yr however has fizzled out since then, modifications to weapon slots, match velocity, and extra have me excited to return in some unspecified time in the future. However I believe I'll look ahead to a significant content material drop earlier than diving again in.
