Destiny 2 New Light Tips And Tricks
The following are some tips and tricks that should make Destiny 2 New Light much easier for you.
Complete The Campaigns
In Destiny 2 New Light, you can unlock different worlds by just leveling up and earning experience but we recommend going through the campaign so you can earn experience and powerful gear quickly and learn what is going on. You can check out our campaign guide to find out how you can play the campaign of not only the base game but the DLCs as well in Destiny 2 New Light.
Energy Weapons Break Shields
As you progress through the game you will encounter enemies that have shields on them. You need to take down the shields before you can damage them. Use energy weapons to do so. Matching the type of energy weapon with the type of shield will deal bonus damage and will take out the shield in no time. For example, you should use Void weapons against Void shields. These will be purple. Arc shields are Blue and Solar shields are Yellow.
Higher Level Players Will Sherpa You
Destiny 2 has been around for 2 years now so most of the players know more than you do at this point. Luckily, the community is great and you will find people that are willing to help you out. You can join different Discord groups in order to find groups that will help you level up and even teach you how the raids work.
Do The Weekly Challenges
You can complete the weekly challenges in order to get powerful gear and level up faster. These show up once a week so make sure to complete them before the reset on Tuesday.
Get New Bounties Every Day
New bounties pop up every day and you can use them to get all kinds of things. If you are interested in doing strikes then you should go to Zavala and get strike bounties. If you are going to be playing the Crucible mode then be sure to talk to Shax and get the crucible bounties before jumping in. The same applies to other activities as well.
Killed By The Architects
You are going to die a lot in Destiny 2 and most of the time it is something that you did wrong but if you see killed by the architects on the screen then know that it was not your fault and this is Bungie’s fun way of telling you that.
Xur Comes Every Friday
Xur is a special vendor that only comes on Friday. He has special gear which includes Exotic armor and weapons that you can buy. These are not cheap but the option is there. He has new stuff every week. His location is random so you do need to find him.
Use Inventory Managers
There are loads of weapons that you can get in Destiny 2 New Light and a pro tip that we can give you is to use an inventory management app like DIM. These apps will allow you to manage your inventory and vault. So that you do not have to go to the tower each time you need to change your gun or armor. You can do it with DIM.
These are all the Destiny 2 New Light Tips that we have for you. If you are interested in buying Shadowkeep then you can check out our guide on the different exotic weapons that you get as part of the expansion.
