And we’re back with another way to shout loud and proud right alongside the community with a brand-new Focus. We’ve had some pretty amazing spotlights through the years and today is no different. He’s an artist. He’s a streamer. He’s the funniest dude on TikTok (and least in my humble opinion), and you may already know him as the creator known as Ansonikage.  

Whether you’re a part of his community or someone just looking for other Guardians to vibe with, let’s get right into it to talk about streaming, good people, and even a Destiny conspiracy theory or two.  
Roll the clip!  
First up, how the heck are ya?! Glad you could make it this week, I’m excited to dig a little deeper into that noggin of yours! But before we do that, go ahead and tell the community a little bit about yourself: What’s your story, who are you, why are you such a gift to TikTok? You know, the usual... 
Feeling great, Liana, thanks for having m...

This week at Bungie, we think it’s time we talk about Iron Banner, check out the new PvP Map, and introduce the Cosplay Cosmodrome. Trust us, it’s really cool. 
Lord Saladin continues to s
how why he has the mettle to inspire the likes of people like Zavala. His inner strength has once more become a vital part of the evolving Destiny 2 narrative, and the team thought that it was high time that his Iron Banner event reflected his resurgence in the story. That, and Rift is back, baby, alongside a brand-new map! We also have a nifty new initiative we’re calling Cosplay Cosmodrome, and an update from our specialist team that has been digging deep into the pe... Read more

If you’ve been following our Community Focuses over on Bungie.net recently, you may have noticed that we’ve been down a delightful rabbit hole filled with epic cosplay creations from talented folks from around the world. Cosplay is a craft that is nothing short of impressive because of the pure love and passion that goes into every detail. The world of cosplay gives creatively passionate people a chance at becoming one with their favorite characters, and even allows them a chance to take a crack at putting their own spin on these expansive and phenomenal worlds. Destiny 2 cosplayers are no different, so we decided to celebrate this wonderful community by challenging nine epic cosplayers to put their spin on our very own Moth Mom: Savathûn.  
You may remember one of our contenders, Lily Bean Cosplay, from ... Read more

Every single Community Focus has mattered. Every single Guardian offers something unique to our community and this is our way of saying thank you for being a part of it. With our latest Community Focus, it’s going to get a little bit personal. 
As a gamer with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) - a nervous system disease that affects mobility, coordination, vision, and more - and a former journalist who has covered the ways the disabled perspective and the gaming industry intersect, I've always been deeply passionate about furthering accessibility within video games. For that reason, it is my immense pleasure to introduce Grant Stoner: a writer you might have seen in some of the biggest publications in the world, like IGN and Fanbyte, that has been loud and proud when it comes to educating this space on what it means to say, “gaming is for all.”  

He's also a total beast when it comes to kickin' some foe butt in Destiny 2. 
Grant! I'm exc... Read more

This week at Bungie, we’ve been heads down making sure Season 17 is poised to rock ‘n roll and recovering from that whopper of a TWAB last week. I’m not going to lie, I really struggled writing this, only because the previous one by DMG dropped lots of solid info about sandbox changes, weapon tweaks, and more. This TWAB will be less extensive, but we hope you enjoy what we’ve got lined up to talk about this week. That, and we still have a few surprises up that proverbial sleeve, but we want to keep some aspects of what is next under wraps. We don’t want to ruin the sur... Read more

In kindness and in good faith, one Twitch Mom takes the streaming world by storm while brainstorming some amazing ideas for the world of Destiny. 
Part of the beauty of this ongoing Community Focus series is that it’s about celebrating everyone. The streamers, the crafters, the passionate players, the accessibility-drivers; every Guardian that makes up the Destiny 2 community has a little something special they bring to the world, and our latest spotlight is no exception. Meet Dee, also known as InDeeDee and – in her community – known as Twitch Mom. She is a Brit living in Australia doing what she can to make the gaming community a little bit brighter. She’s also very adamant that her name is not in relation to Pokémon, and that she came before her cartoon counterpart (so take that).  
Ready to get started? Let’s rock ‘n roll, buckaroos!  
Stoked to have you chatting with us today, Dee! Before we get rolling here, tell us a little bit about ... Read more

This week at Bungie, we talk about Rhulk finding his chill and a new way to enjoy raids and dungeons.  
It really is almost mid-April already, huh? As the weeks continue to feel like they fly by in a rush for summer, we’re excited to show off even more changes coming to Destiny 2 while we continue working on what the future means for our favorite space-faring heroes. In the next few weeks, we’ll be diving through some weapon sandbox changes and other topics of interest. One of the changes that we are ready to talk about now, however, is a new Rotator system for some of the more challeng... Read more

You may be looking at this Community Focus and thinking to yourself, “Self, that’s a lot of words. Ain’t nobody got time to read all that.” Let me just say: 1) stop it 2) trust me, it’s worth it. Omni Props, as an entity, has made a name for itself in the Destiny community for impressive builds, creative takes on the game, and it doesn’t hurt that the creator behind the masks is a precious cinnamon bun that must be protected at all costs. So, it’s a cosplayer lover’s delight for us to introduce you to Javier Martinez, the creative soul behind some wildly impressive contributions to our lovely microcosm of incredible people.  
Without further ado, let’s dive right in and talk about the creative cycle of translating digital love into real-life works of art while also paying special tributes to those that helped him find his style along the way:  
First off! How the heck are ya?! Go ahead and introduce yourself to the Destiny community. Who are you, what do you... Read more

This week at Bungie, we are saying thank you to our generous community for all their incredible contributions to this year’s Game2Give charity initiative with the Bungie Foundation. We’re also offering some clarity into our Terms of Service regarding in-game behaviors and talking about a recent wave of strikes against the Destiny 2 content creator community (and in an odd twist of events, even our own official channels).  

A lighter TWAB this week

Making Drifter proud, one ding-ding-ding at a time. 
One thing that I personally love about the Destiny-verse is that it isn’t just one thing. There is PvP, PvE, and PvPvE for Guardians to enjoy (or in my case, die horribly in – Iron Banana, I just can’t quit you), but one particular player has carved a name out for herself for being the Queen of Gambit, and it’s pretty easy to see why. When I say she is a legend, I mean it, so let’s dive right into the shenanigans with our latest Community Focus feature: Silver, the Gambit Queen.
First up, what's up!? You've got a pretty stellar reputation in the community by living up to the Queen of Gambit title. Tell us a little bit about yourself and the start of your gaming journey?  
Hey! My name is Silver and I have actually been gaming since Destiny 1. I was not one of the lucky folks that have had the privilege of gaming their whole life, so I came into gaming primarily through Destin...

This week at Bungie, we are celebrating World First, talking raid stats, and showing off a new weapon rotation for Trials and Iron Banner.  
Guardians have been diving into The Witch Queen and Season of the Risen and discovering a wealth of new story content and lore to dig into that makes us cry. Despite some server issues and a few hiccups in-game, the latest step of the ever-evolving story of Destiny has been a wild one, but we are far from done when it comes to making it even better. From the Seasonal quest continuing towards its own conclusion to a new hotfix going live today full of bug fixes, there are a lot of reasons to dive in. Because of that, we wanted to talk about some of the different weapons coming to Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner, returning maps making their way downtown (er, to the Crucible), and talk about what issues have been addressed (link to patch notes) and what’s still on the docket.  
But first? Art.

Making the Destiny community a little bit brighter, one epic cosplay at a time. 

In the last cosplay Community Focus, we playfully had a few jabs at non-Titan classes, so it was only fair that the next amazingly talented human being to be featured would showcase the beauty that are Hunters (Hippy says grudgingly). 
Lilian, or Lily Bean Cosplay, is a passionate fan of all things Destiny 2 and Star Wars, and that passion can easily be seen through her craft. OK, OK, you’ve got me – this Titan-main must admit, she makes Hunters look ... Read more

This week at Bungie, we’re taking a deep breath and are feeling very thankful to our community.  
The Witch Queen is now out and Guardians all around the world are charging into the next chapter of the Destiny universe. For the most part, queues were relatively short-lived, bugs were limited (knock on wood), and good times could be seen from a mile away as we watched reactions from those in the community dive in feet-first into Savathûn’s Throne World for the very first time. From the excitement over the Legendary Mode campaign to exploring the incredible potential of creating one’s own perfected arsenal, there is more to the beginning of this next step into the Destiny-verse than many were anticipating. And that’s not even diving into the post-campaign goodness like even more quests after you’re done crushing Hive Ghosts with your bare hands (a moment of silence, please).  


To say that the team is proud would be a massive understatement, ... Read more

Gaming is for all, and one Guardian goes above and beyond to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table when talking about accessibility.  

The Destiny community is filled with some incredible people, players that are not afraid to stand firm and be a source of positivity in a world that is in desperate need of the Light. One such person is none other than Steve Saylor. You may know him as Blind Gamer for his work in the gaming industry as an accessibility voice. He is blind, he plays video games, and he kicks a whole lot of butt. More importantly, he is also one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet, which makes me incredibly excited to introduce you to him with our latest Community Focus.  

Let’s get into it.  

First up, thank you so much for speaking with us! Your presence in the gaming community is so incredibly positive, so let’s start off by talking a little a... Read more

This week at Bungie, we showed off a heck of a lot, including more Void 3.0 goodness. We’re also setting some Legendary Campaign expectations alongside a special tribute to our heroes.  
What a week so far, and we still have just a little more time to go before The Witch Queen finally arrives later this month. A lot of new info has dropped this week with an enticing new ViDoc and the breakdown many have been asking for regarding ... Read more

One Titan stands tall but far from alone. 
I’ve been in love with the cosplay community for over two decades now and have frequently gushed about various cosplayers through the years in my writing. So, when we brought back Community Focuses with a bang, you could bet your sweet bum I already had more than a few people in mind. As a Titan main, our return to cosplay goodness was an easy pick: a woman that absolutely pwns when it comes to crafting her perfect Destiny look. Plus, her friends and partner make a mean Saint-14 and an epic homage to Hunters, as well. Ready to finally get some time to shine, Titans? Let’s dive right in with the incredible Laura Moolman, also known by her cosplay alias, Lozza Coolman for her cosplay.  

Very excited to get a chance to chat with you and share your work with the Destiny 2 community at large! Before we dive into the details, tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into cosplay and Destiny?

This week at Bungie, we kind of kicked a lot of butt, took some names, made grass prettier, and unbanned some folks. 

“Hey Guardian, come here often?” You can’t see it, but I’m totally doing a very al
luring eyebrow wiggle but in exo; it’s fantastic. Anyway, it’s our weekly chance at a TWAB-tastic good time and maybe a few more hidden Easter eggs for those that liked finding them in previous blog posts. But alongside bad jokes and cute secret messages, we actually do have real game things to discuss. We’ve got some Ritual Reputation changes, an HDR setting revamp, an update on BattlEy... Read more

We’re back, Guardians, with another spicy Community Focus. We’ll be doing these weekly to showcase various members of the Destiny 2 community. No Light is too big or too small for a little extra love, but this week we wanted to dive into one of the voices of Gamertag Radio, a voice that has continued to fight to make the gaming community a healthier and happier place for all. Ready for a nifty meet and greet? Let’s dive right in with the one. The only: Parris! 
First off, thanks for sitting down with us! Many know you from your amazing show called Gamertag Radio alongside Danny Peña (and your hilarious segues with those aviators during the official Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase). With more and more Guardians seeing your love for the Destiny-verse, share with us a little more about yourself and what ultimately led you to the Guardian community? 
About me? I’ve always had a love and passion for gaming that goes all the way back t...

We’re back, baby! TWAB is alive and well and we’re excited for what’s next with the upcoming launch of The Witch Queen. Just one more month to go before we learn more about Savathûn’s influence and what that means for Guardians and our beloved Osiris, in addition to some nifty additions to gameplay such as crafting and pokey-pokey Glaive goodness. While we do want to share some news with our players, we also want to keep some secrets because there are a few unique surprises on the way that we want you to experience for yourselves.
  
Also, can we just take a moment to appreciate the latest trailer for The Witch Queen that showcased Savathûn’s Throne Wor... Read more
