The House of Wolves expansion for Destiny dropped on May 19, and we’ve been playing it since. People have been upset about the lack of raids this time round, but there’s still enough for players to sink their teeth into. We thought we’d delve into it a bit for our readers.
The Reef—the brand new social area, is the primary focus of House of Wolves. Players have been invited by the Queen of the Awoken—the one that helps the Guardian access the Black Garden, to the Reef. The Queen needs the help of the Guardians to track down one of her rogue lieutenants, who has betrayed her and sought to take over the “House of Wolves”. Obviously there are new [...]
Destiny has had just a few issues that fans have been clamoring for Bungie to fix—one of which is all over the Bungie forums.

Bungie stated their excitement and made reference to ideas announced two weeks ago, including PvP Ammunition, Strike, Raid fixes, and finally Vault Space. Vault space seems to the first one they’re focusing on. They know that fans have [...]

Quickscoping, in case you weren’t aware, allows a player to swiftly switch to the scope of, say, a sniper rifle and fire immediately.

There are other fixes going live as well.Added more data logging for matchmaking systems Improved connectivity failure handling to reduce beaver (Kick To Orbit events) KTOs Improved logging of player [...]
Loot is aplenty despite Bungie recently shutting down Destiny’s treasure cave. The old cave was patched but within less than a day players have figured out a new farming location to suit all your loot needs.
As seen in the video posted above by PS4Trophies the new location is in the Rocketyard area of the Old Russia on Earth planet. In this area the enemies spawn every six seconds (just like the original Skywatch treasure cave) near a hallway so that they are sort of funneled through where the player, from far away, can easily pick them off. If you run out of ammo then just check the remains and drops and you’ll be sure to fill your clips and over time pick up [...]
