Destiny 2 is Currently One of Steam's Most-Played Games

By Andrea Trama


After being one of the most played games on Steam recently, Destiny 2 peaks this week, reaching high spots in the platform's charts.

Destiny 2 was first released over four years ago now, and the game has undergone a lot of changes from that period that drastically altered both its narrative and gameplay. Things changed a lot with Destiny 2's first big expansion Forsaken, which added two new areas, bows as a weapon archetype, and also the Scorn as an enemy race. It was also the time when Cayde-6 died at the hands of Uldren Sov and the Scorn Barons, which was a major turning point in the franchise's history and pulled players back into the plot.

Ever since then, Destiny 2has been steadily growing and seeing bigger numbers in terms of how many active players it gets to retain over time. This may be partly due to how the game's seasonal model changed Bungie's approach to new content, which is now diluted over the span of a few weeks rather than all-out on day 1. As such, both story bits from the seasonal narrative and gameplay elements like new guns and Exotic quests, are handed out throughout the whole Season, which is a good way to keep players involved.

Yesterday, Steam registered a high peak in terms of active users playing Destiny 2 concurrently, and that was high enough that the game became the third most played on the platform. The numbers were good, hitting around 125,000 players, and they matched other records that Bungie's shooter held, especially when compared to its all-time peak of 292,513 active users. This is even more relevant when comparing Destiny 2's numbers on Steam with other contenders for the top 10 in the charts, with games like Dota 2 peaking at 583,244 users against the game's all-time peak of 1,295,114 players.

Destiny 2 has been steadily climbing the charts, and this may very well be due to a perfect storm surrounding it. As a matter of fact, a huge factor in yesterday's peak could be due to the catalyst for Ager's Scepter releasing after the weekly reset, making the act of farming it very desirable for a lot of players. Then, because yesterday was the weekly reset, it also means that new story bits in Destiny 2's Season of the Lost came out.

The storyline for Destiny 2's Season of the Lost is particularly important now because it's all about how Savathun will get the Traveler's Light in The Witch Queen. Furthermore, it seems likely that Crow will find out about his previous life as Uldren, and that too might have major consequences for the game moving forward.

Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Armor stats and tier charts - Destiny 2

The armor in Destiny 2 has grown in complexity since the game first launched in 2017. Back then, players barely had any late-game stats to chase outside of armor perks. Now, there are six main stats on every piece of armor, which go into affecting your Guardian’s speed, defences, as well as their cooldowns.

Before we get into the meat of the stats, credit goes to the work of Serena_Altschul over on the Destiny subreddit. This user has managed to collate the information from various sources, including user doormango and other YouTube channels, while also putting in their own research and suggestions. Make sure you check out Serena_Altschul’s post for their perspective of chasing gear.

Destiny 2 armor stats

destiny 2 armor stats explained

Armor in Destiny 2 is broken down into six key stats, with classes benefitting from one specific area for its Class Ability. These stats are as follows:

  • Mobility – Increases your movement speed and maximum jump height
  • Resilience – Increases the amount of damage you can take before dying
  • Recovery – Increases the speed at which you regain lost health
  • Discipline – Decreases the cooldown time of your grenades
  • Intellect – Decreases the cooldown of your Super ability
  • Strength – Decreases the cooldown time of your melee ability

As for the stat that benefits each of Destiny 2’s classes, they are:

  • Hunters – Mobility
  • Titans – Resilience
  • Warlocks – Recovery

What this means is that if a Hunter improves its Mobility stat, the cooldown of its Class Ability will be improved. Titans will need to improve Resilience and Warlocks must improve Recovery for their Class Ability cooldowns to be shorter.

Now we’re getting to the bulk of the mechanic. For the uninitiated, each piece of armor in Destiny 2 comes with points in the above stats (Mobility, Resilience, Recovery etc). The distribution of these points is random.

The points from your Helmet, Gauntlets, Chest, and Boots are added together and displayed to the right of your Guardian on the character screen. These points have a direct impact on the efficiency of the stats. For every 10 points in a given stat, that stat is increased one tier, from Tier 1 through to Tier 10. At 100 Points, a stat will be at Tier 10, so any points over 100 are excess and a waste.

The following are the stat tiers in Destiny 2 for each of the three classes. Note that each class also benefits from a stat in one specific area. This stat will improve the cooldown time of its class ability (Dodge, Barricade, or Rift).

What is a good armor roll?

This is where a lot of subjectivity and preference comes into play. In saying this, there are some gold standards when it comes to sorting the wheat from the chaff. Building a set of armor with a Tier 10 slot and another that is above Tier 5 is going to take a lot of work.

In terms of curating the perfect set of armor for your build, well, that’s going to come down to sheer luck and determination. Serena_Altschul has given an entire rundown that includes theorycrafting what a perfect build might look like and what it could be in reality. I implore you to read the full post, as it goes into a whole lot of detail about chasing a Tier 26 build (one stat at Tier 10 another at Tier 6), but the golden piece of advice is to keep any armor that has two stats, one stat at 20+ and the other at 15+.

As for where to begin, first of all, you will likely want to focus your efforts on armor that has a point total of 60 or more. This often allows enough room for one stat to have 20 points in it and another to have 15. This also ensures that there are at least some points in the other stats so you’re not neutered in one area.

As an example, on this Holdfast Vest from Season of Arrivals below, you can see it has 67 total points, with 19 Intellect and 16 Mobility being its two highest stats. It’s not perfect, but it’s coming close. On the other hand, this Reverie Dawn Hauberk is has a total of 60 with a 20/20 point split in Mobility and Resilience (thanks to it being Armor 1.0). It also has no points in Recovery, which could be an issue depending on what you’re aiming for.

You will also need to take into account a piece of armor’s maximum Power. This will limit how long it will be viable for use in PVE end-game content. For those that are only concerned about cooldown timers for Crucible, this won’t be a problem, unless you’re playing something that relies on Power.

Understanding the stat and tier system of the armor in Destiny 2 is going to greatly help you reach a whole new end-game. Once this system does click, you will find yourself looking at the point breakdown of armor first, before you even consider its Power.
