Everything newcomers need to know before playing Destiny 2

PC gamers still have to wait until October 24 to play Destiny 2, but its recent release on consoles means we can finally dig into the game and prepare a landing strip for newcomers that missed the first game entirely. We don’t blame you—it wasn’t on the PC after all. But Bungie’s first game on the PC in a decade won’t be as simple as anyone familiar with Halo or Marathon expects. Destiny is still about shooting creatures in first-person, but they’ve since wrapped a damn RPG around it.

To help out, here’s an introduction to what Destiny 2 is and a few things to keep in mind to make your first experience with its maze of modes, currencies, and progression systems a good one. 

Don't worry about sprinting to level 20

If you’re unfamiliar with Destiny 2’s leveling system, then don’t let it intimidate you. The inventory screen shows a lot of little icons and numbers that won’t make sense without context, but just know this: the higher the numbers are, the better. Your first goal is to hit level 20, which you achieve by killing bad guys and completing missions—pretty standard stuff.
